Dr. Sherman reaches out to the core of change. Mindfulness brings people into the present. It helps them look at their problems from a different perspective so that change is possible. The first chapter talks about what a crazy, obsessive world we live in. The first step is recognizing that that world exists!
Sherman presents how unhealthy our thinking can be. Negatively can set into our minds and bodies like concrete casting an angry, unhappy life for many. Stress and unrealistic expectations affect many, resulting in a complete shut down of rational thought. She discuses how many people are afraid, becoming emotionally impaired and "stuck." If you are unable to change your life, your beliefs can miserably spiral you downward. She explores ways you can change your fate and control your life. Ways to enjoy a happier life.
She teaches you how to be aware of what the real root of your problems may stem from.
She teaches you how to approach your issues from a different, much healthier perspective that allows that concrete wall to come down so that moving forward is possible...moving forward with a more grounded foundation to problems and conflict. Her exercises can help you-step by step- identify your troubles and reach into yourself to uncover the true emotion that is preventing your growth and self actualization.
I particularly liked her assessment of "The Solution" Quieting the Nosy Mind." We are sometimes to busy minded--too much drama- to be in the now, and to uncover how our body truly feels, and what our true emotions are regarding our issues. She helps you get there. She makes you aware of paralyzing self judgments that keep repeating in your head. She helps you "throw them out." She offers a "door way to freedom." One that allows you to think and feel in alternatives and in choices. She reveals the "art" of choice, helping you make healthier decisions to fixating problems.
I learned that everything is a choice and that how we look at ourselves affects how we look at the world. We control our destiny. We choose to be sad, happy or grateful.
Sherman gives you meaning back to your life in a very easy, simplistic process of self recovery. She shares many usable techniques for the layperson. Techniques and self discovery tools you would find in any therapists office.

I received a complimentary copy of “Mindfulness and the Art of Choice”.
