Being Present

A Book of Daily Reflections (AA Daily Reflections Book, Daily Reader Addiction, Present Moment Awareness, and for Readers of The Book of Awakening or Reflections of a Man)

By David Kundtz

A Year of Daily Meditations

Learn how to start meditating. Learning how to meditate and how to be mindful is simpler than it looks. The whole purpose of your meditation is to show up as awake and aware as possible to your everyday life. Longtime therapist and meditator David Kundtz gives you permission not to fret about whether you're getting your meditation practice right or not. It's right.

Ponder daily quotes to help you live in this moment. Being Present has one purpose: to give you an opportunity to live in the moment once a day, every day. As you start to accumulate these mindful moments, your life will become more peaceful, more rewarding, and more awakened.

Discover the benefits of meditation for yourself. In Being Present, Kundtz guides us through the seasons of a year—and the seasons of a life—drawing inspiration and mindfulness quotes from poets and scientists, spiritual teachers and children, butterflies and big cities. With the help of this book, you will discover how to:

  • Be present and become a more mindful person
  • Maintain the focus, awareness, and equanimity that you need for getting through stressful situations
  • Experience the peaceful moments of mindful living

If you found the daily reflections in inspirational books like A Year of Positive ThinkingThe Daily Book of Positive Quotations, and Greatest Inspirational Quotes, then you'll love meditating on the mindfulness quotes and thoughts in Being Present.

The Art of Stopping

Coping Skills for Dealing with the Overwhelming Responsibilities of Life

“An elegant, powerful, and simple tool for finding serenity. Just what the world needs right now.” ―Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

We are always on the go. Balancing work, family, friends, and everything in between is a routine of running and never stopping─a cycle that can be tiring. We forget the beauty of the smaller moments and sometimes we forget to stop and use our coping skills.

Stopping is a gift to yourself. Knowing when to breathe and regain a clearer vision of yourself and your surroundings helps give you a fresh perspective and an inner balance meant to help you feel in control of the bigger things.

Who are you? What are your true priorities? Your responsibilities may have taken over and are preventing you from living to your fullest potential. Dr. Kundtz gives you insight into key questions you should be asking.

Stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy the sunrise. Big things can grab your attention but don’t forget to turn around and find the serenity in stillness─the peace in a deep breath, and the happiness in remembering who you are.

With this valuable guide learn to:

  • Connect with the spiritual aspects of your life
  • Practice mindfulness and reduce stress
  • Acknowledge when it becomes too much and take a step back
  • Use proper coping skills to create healthier habits

If you enjoyed books like The Way of Integrity, Giving Grief Meaning, I Am Invincible, Time Management for Mortals, or The Road Less Traveled, then you’ll love The Art of Stopping.
