Book Review – Good Morning, I Love You: Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Practices to Rewire Your Brain for Calm, Clarity, and Joy, by Shauna Shapiro

Shauna Shapiro, the author, does a great job of highlighting the importance of self-compassion, which others like Dr. Kristen Neff have advocated for. Like Neff, she has plenty of studies to back her points. This is a self-help book that can be valuable for those who are considering mindfulness and meditation for the first time. There are practical exercises at the end of each chapter, including the final one with the book’s title.

“Mindfulness practice is not about creating or changing anything about your experience. It is changing
the way you relate to your experience by adding the resonance of intention, attention, and attitude.”
