Buddhism for Beginners- UMMMMM – e91s2

episode 91 season 2

Simple guide to learn & practice Buddhism meditation. Improve your happiness & reduce your daily stress & anxiety with mindfulness mediation training.

As you know, I’ve been dabbling into the wonderful world of audio books, now publishing more than 20 titles, I’ll feature these on my show every so often and maybe entice you to give a book a listen you wouldn’t typically think of. Maybe it’s Buddhism to improve your happiness, maybe it’s Wicca and learn about this nature based religion – maybe it’s about Keto the newest yet oldest way of eating. There’s links to all of these books in my show notes. Enjoy listen and leave me a review if you feel so inclined.

Yes there’s a lot in this book but it is so valuable especially if you haven’t given this religious practice much thought in the past. I know I haven’t but I do reflect more on the mindful spirit now and being kind. No complaining, staying positive. Once time, someone said if you can think of something that made you smile – a few times a day – it sets you in a better mood. Think of this, a cute kitty or a dog, rolling around in their own moment, in the sun, doesn’t this make you smile? See I told you! or how about this one…see a baby giggle yep gotcha, it makes you feel good.
