DOWNLOAD [Unplug by Suze Yalof Schwartz] AUTHOR Suze Yalof Schwartz
Hey are written for the casual reader
But Does The Casual Reader Really Want does the casual reader really want be talked down to and have their time wastedSchwartz presents mediation in a way that is accessible But her message is a bit of a mess She claims there is nothing new agey or woowoo about it but later in the book talks seriously about chakras In one paragraph she says that crystals aren t magic but that they admit energies that just can t be proved It s obvious that she gets something religious or at least spiritual out of meditation The contradictory wording is typical of the religiousspiritual person appealing to secularskeptical minded readers But for all the silliness and estionable claims there are some pretty helpful tips hidden in there Reading Unplug has given me a few ideas as to how I might improve me meditations my main focus is practicing being in My main focus is practicing being in present moment and not caught p on my minds turmoil And the basic meditation techniues do seem to help with that I m sure there are better books out there and I m going to keep looking for them Unplug isn t a total waste of time but it s just a bit too much of a mess to be worth recommending Those who do buy into the magic will likely want something a bit focused on the spiritual side While secular readers like myself are going to be put off by the chakras the spiritual side While secular readers like myself are going to be put off by the chakras crystals The book is all about self promotion I ve interacted with the author in real life and trust me she is anything but zen I am blown away I wish I could give this 6 stars I listened to this and then read the book My cousin fecommended it to me and I believe this might be LIFE CHANGINGyes I said that The author of this book read the audible She herself is so excited to pass on all the information about meditation She explains how it changed her She wanted to pass on all her information on what it was how to do it the misconceptions the benefits the science behind it and the many types It is for busy skeptics and modern soul seekers Truly and honestly I was a skeptic However I cannot wait to start and give it a try It seems like a win win Love the whole idea of nplugging from distraction and experience the PRESENT moment I know it will take practice and I need to remember to have patience with the process Seems once your soul gets awakened you will want to keep it going Suze Yalof Schwartz says you have the power to take yourself on an inner vacation at ANYTIME to find your passion your purpose and your peace I am so excited to UNPLUG sit in silence and MEDITATE Now I want to share with everyone Love this The Water Of Life uick easy and to the point I ve been dipping into a couple other books on meditation and mindfulness lately and this is by far my favourite She makes meditation seem so simple There are a bunch of 1 5 minute meditation exercises you can do throughout the day eg While in line at Starbucks or while dealing with a stressful situation but my fave is the straightp meditation which is basically just sitting comfortably and focusing on your breath It s also super non judgmental so even if your mind wanders or you struggle to concentrate it s okay you can try a different type of meditation or you can just acknowledge the blip and move on. Hwartz debunks the common misperceptions about meditation including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods of time or that you need to turn off your brain She also shares the life changing benefits you will experience the proven science of how meditation literally changes your brain as well as easy techniues and tips to easily incorporate meditation into your daily life. ,
Kay at best If I could rate just the middle third of the book I would give it 3 or 4 stars out of five It s too bad this book wasn t around last year when I made a summer project out of reading all the books in my local library on Buddhism and meditation in the hopes of putting together the best bits into a guide for New Age wary atheists like myself because that s exactly what this book is a no nonsense guide to just the biological Western friendly aspects of meditation that make it work in a modern setting dispensing not only with all the foreign phrases but also all the pointlessly rigid details about meditation that are sually handed down in New Age guides like biblical laws How should you properly sit during meditation Schwartz However you want How long should a proper meditation session last Schwartz However long you want It s a refreshingly straightforward guide to a subject that s still wrapped in a lot of distracting mumbo jumbo when meditation fans typically talk about it and Schwartz takes an attitude towards it that s much in line with the medical friendly Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction MBSR program than any particular religion or Eastern philosophy so it s a real shame then that Schwartz isn t actually that good a writer who betrays here her former career as a fashionmakeup expert and Today Show regular by penning a book that will be much too twee and glib for many people s tastes and that spends the entire first 25 percent of its page count doing ridiculous LA name dropping and endlessly beating around the bush before finally getting to the part you bought the book for in the first place It s still getting a decent score from me today although those 4 stars would actually be 3 12 if Goodreads allowed half star ratings because the part in the middle about meditation itself is still very good basically all the best bits from everyone else s books compacted into an extended magazine article s worth of really seful information but if you want the optimal reading experience here you should only read the middle Part 2 of the book and skip Parts 1 and 3 altogether and I can t in good conscience give a 4 star review to a book that s only readable for one third of its page count One of those books to check out of the library instead of buy but certainly worth doing so if you re looking for a good Western friendly primer to this notoriously diversion filled subject An almost 200 page book with only about 15 pages of real content Just skip to the content you want to read you re not missing anything Useless tangents and name dropping This book is essentially an advertisement for the author s meditation studio in LA I love how easy to read this is and how its broken down in easy to follow steps I have a hard time meditating and I hope this will help I went into Unplug with
the hope of getting some tips on meditating and maybe find a way that works better for me And Ihope of getting some tips on meditating and maybe find a way that works better for me And I that sort of But it was Only After Sifting Through after sifting through lot of name dropping and meaningless tangents There must be a page limit or word limit for self help books as many of them this book included are frustratingly repetitive wordy and condescending I m told Done and do it better by doing less just by consciously nplugging for a few minutes each day and meditatingThis revolutionary book by the founder and CEO of the groundbreaking LA based meditation studio Unplug Meditation brilliantly simplifies this powerful practice and shows the overwhelmed and overworked how easy it is to nplug in order to relieve stress regain focus and rechargeSc. Book 9 of the POPSUGAR challenge A book about a hobbyI ve always been interested in practicing meditation but always thought it was too hard I can t turn off my brain I m constantly bombarded by my thoughts I fidget and move around too much Unplug makes meditation so simple It doesn t matter if you can t turn your brain off you simply recognize the thoughts trickling back in and refocus I find that stress like everyone effects my sleep and my mood so it was refreshing to read about ways to deal with it and not necessarily letting things go but letting them be When you notice yourself getting angry or pset label the emotion recognize it and move onI will definitely be adopting many of the methods from this book and hopefully be on my way to successfully meditating and noticing the benefits in my life I highly recommend this book and will probably be buying it for people I know would be interested in it or could benefit from it I first noticed the cover of this book and that is what drew me in Then I noticed what it is about and decided it would be worth the time to read it and I was right The author tells you a new way to look at how you can meditate I liked what she says everyone can do it You do not need to have the traditional way of sitting things they
say or how to do it The idea is to just get started meditating As she says thereor how to do it The idea is to just get started meditating As she says there never be extra time to do but you have to make time for it just like you make time for everything else in your life ie reading working out sports tv watching etc You can start by just doing it five minutes a day and work your way p to 30 minutes a day You can do it lying down standing in line or sitting in your favorite chair She even tells you how you can meditate in your car in a traffic jam or standing in line at the grocery store both of which I need to start doing The author tells you how to pick your mantra how to find what is comfortable for you and when to do it She also threw in some stories from real people and their thoughts on For the Love of All Thats Holy, Dont Buy a Boat When Venus is in Retrograde unplugging I liked her ideas and made myself some good notes This book was well written and easy to read I pickedp this book because it was supposed to be a no nonsense straightforward guide to meditation for the busy person The first 13 of the book begins by explaining to you why you should be meditating and trying to convince you of the benefits of meditation I found this to be a waste of time because thinking realistically if I purchased the book in the first place I already believe at least on some level of the benefits of meditation and that I should be doing it She even wrote instructions to skip ite a few pages if you didn t need convincing The middle 13 is fairly good information that I found somewhat helpful But then the last 13 of the book she starts explaining the mystical side of meditation talking about chakras and crystals that can promote healing and other nonsense that has helped make people see meditation as this pseudo science thing that helped make people see meditation as this pseudo science thing that hippies and those that believe in palm readings ghosts reiki and such would do All in all I thought that 23 of the book was crap that wasn t relevant and the 13 of the book that wasn t total crap was A modernized approach to meditation that will appeal to anyone even if especially if you believe you have no time you can't sit still or that it's just not youWhether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or someone bogged down with a never ending to do list the proven secret to being effective and living a happier healthier life is to hurry p and slow down to nplug Studies show that you can get.
