This month we are reading Happiness: Essential Mindfulness Practices by Thich Nhat Hanh. This is a wonderful book by the patient Vietnamese Monk offers clear and simple exercises to achieve mindfulness.
Mindfulness is especially important during the holiday season because we can easily become preoccupied by our worries and desires instead of the love and warmth of our families. You can purchase the book of the month here at our online store: http://cnyfertility.com/store/ as well as in the office.
Also, if you have never encountered any of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings, I suggest you watch the following quick video, it is a nice explanation of his definition and love for mindfulness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8gEpW7DraI
We will be discussing the book of the month at our December Circle of Hope support meetings, and I will also post some quick thoughts and notes on our website, if you are too busy to take a peek at it!
Also, look check back for the second part of our Holiday Support Guide early this week for some good coping tools for Thanksgiving!
