WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW

A Year of Mindfulness For Beginners by Lee Papa is a neat little book if you are looking for a gift to give a friend. It is packed full of quotes, daily meditation exercises, mantras, and prompts. If you are the sort of person who finds it useful to be reminded to take time out of your day to be more mindful, this is a fantastic option for you.

That being said, I don’t think this book was for me. I found a lot of the daily prompts and meditations to be unnecessarily verbose and at times, hard to follow. I wish the book had been more thoughtful with its exercises and a bit less about “think positive thoughts”. But to each their own, you know?
