Have you ever missed an exit on the highway because you were daydreaming? Mental Resilience: The Power of Clarity (New World Library, 2008) will help you control your focus and concentration by exercising your mind. Author Kamal Sarma reminds us that we tend to take our most precious asset for granted, but without mental resilience you wouldn't be able to make decisions, recall memories, or focus at work, so it is important to exercise your mind just like you do your body. Don't worry, however, you don't have to practice arithmetic to keep your mind strong; in fact, Sarma's number one way to keep your mind power intact is through meditation. Sarma says that meditation can be just as easy as the focused concentration that you dedicate each week to your favorite TV show. The book brings you from the most basic level of mind workouts (like finding a space and learning good posture) to more advanced meditation techniques, such as discovering emotional tranquility or developing insight. Equipped with illustrations that help you easily adapt Sarma's meditation lessons into your lifestyle, you are instantly able to awaken your mind and energize your spirit while turning the pages.
