The Zen Habits Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness

I’m happy to share with you a new “short read” ebook that I’ve written: the Zen Habits Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness.

I’ve written this for absolute or near beginners, who would like to bring mindfulness into their lives … or who are struggling with:

  • Procrastination
  • Creating better habits
  • Frustration, disappointment, feeling stuck
  • Relationship problems
  • Being content

I’ve found that mindfulness is the fundamental skill to deal with any of these struggles. And in this short ebook — which you can read in one sitting if you feel like it — I not only talk about why this is true, I share some simple exercises for developing the skills to deal with any of these struggles.


I don’t promise miracles, and you’ll have to do the exercises to get decent at these skills. But they work, in my experience, and I hope they help you.


Daily Zen Meditation

Just detach from all sound and form,
And do not dwell in detachment,
And do not dwell in intellectual understanding,
This is practice. Baizhang
