I have anxiety (post natal) and I think mindfulness might help me.

I have borrowed a kindle, cab anyone recommend a good book to download? Something quite simple and to the point?

I don't know of any books, but the Headspace app is good. Sorry If that's no help.

There's an app called Breathe which is also pretty calming

I recommend 'Mindfulness - a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world' by Mark Williams. Includes a CD of exercises. I found it really helpful.

If you google Hay House you will find lots of suggestions about Mindfulness (and lots more besides!).

That's great, thanks everyone. I listened to the first headspace track last night and fell asleep half way through!! So I guess that worked! Lol

Would really like to read about it too though so will look at all your suggestions x
