Summary "Do you live your life at a frenzied pace and then drop into bed at night feeling unfulfilled? Do you work hard but sometimes feel as though you spend most of your time doing things that don’t matter? Do you feel overwhelmed and constantly stressed out? What if you could get everything done and still feel calm, centered, and stress-free all day long? How much time would you invest to create focus, presence, and real intention in your life?" "How about five minutes? In this book, Dr. Jeffrey Brantley, founder and director of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke University’s Center for Integrative Medicine, offers engaging ways you can make simple, effective, and lasting changes-five minutes at a time. Starting each morning with just one of these exercises will set the tone for a calm, balanced, and more fulfilling day. And as you continue your practice, you will find that five good minutes are the best gift you can give yourself. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
