“Habits are difficult to change. Our ways of behaving and thinking become ingrained in our neural networks, and this often causes us to act without forethought or reflection. But there is a space between stimulus and response, and by practicing mindfulness, we can increase the space between the two. This is where Matthew Sockolov’s book comes in. Practicing Mindfulness demystifies mindfulness practice, and is a wonderful—and necessary—addition to existing literature.”—Sonnee D. Weedn, Ph.D.
