It is probably not one I would have found on my own, and I probably would not have read it either. However, "free books" Why not?
And I am so glad that I did. If there is some guy sitting behind a desk somewhere at the goodreads office, print this off and pass it around because I want to say thank you for doing the giveaways. Thank you.

First, I have been recently diagnosed with bipolar and some f Wow. First, I have been recently diagnosed with bipolar and some frontal lobe damage. So this book was both educational and inspirational. Second, I was not sure I wanted to read a book length woo about Taoism. However, the authors kept the woo to a bare minimum, integrated it with psychology, and at times translated it into more Western terminology.
They made it both reasonable and accessible to a skeptical reader. The book is roughly divided into three sections: principles and facts, learning meditation, and handling your moods. All the chapters are relatively short and to the point. They are very economic with their words, which I loved. It was direct and to the point. This will keep a person reading when they are unsure of the validity of the content.
But I have to say that my skepticism gave way to excitement and hope. The section on principles and facts was most educational. I have had a mental health professional explain things to me, and have read handouts, etc but the facts presented here were so basic and well communicated that I better understood the things I already "knew. The second section, on meditation, was also very educational. They explained, with simple exercises, concepts about focus, open focus, and no focus meditation, and explained how each can help a person cope with their episodes.
I will also add here that the authors were very clear that these exercises were best used WITH the prescribed medication and not instead of medication. They were very responsible to mention this point in a few different places in the text. Finally, the section on handling your moods took the meditation techniques learned in the second section and applied them to stress, depression, mania, and relationships in easy to understand and implement ways.
I cannot overemphasize the point that the Simpkins writing style is so clean and economic. It is refreshing to have a psychology "manual" that can be read and understood by the layman. And enjoyed! Overall, I will say that I am very happy that I read this book. It gives me encouragement as I deal with this new understanding of what my life is and will be. And, most of all, it gives me hope that I can handle it. I look forward to perfecting the meditation exercises that I have already begun, thanks to this book.
Thanks again goodreads. And thank you Drs Simpkins and Simpkins. View 1 comment. Jul 01, Skylar rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads. I don't have bipolar, but I won this book in a giveaway and thought it might help me anyway.
I suffer from depression, anxiety, and OCD. I have plenty of experience with depression, and sometimes anxiety or OCD can resemble mania, if for shorter periods of time. I found this book easy to read, easy to implement, and very helpful. The style of writing may be difficult for some people, as it has a very structured set-up and I don't have bipolar, but I won this book in a giveaway and thought it might help me anyway. The style of writing may be difficult for some people, as it has a very structured set-up and can be repetitive.
From my perspective, I believe it's written like an academic piece. Charles Atkins. Mindfulness in Motion: A happier, healthier life through body-centred meditation.
