A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world.
CD available in your local library.
Everyday life is so frantic and full of troubles that we have largely forgotten how to live a joyful existence. We try so hard to be happy that we often end up missing the most important parts of our lives. In “Mindfulness,” Oxford professor Mark Williams and award-winning journalist Danny Penman reveal the secrets to living a happier and less anxious, stressful, and exhausting life. Based on the techniques of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, the unique program developed by Williams and his colleagues, the book offers simple and straightforward forms of mindfulness meditation that can be done by anyone and it can take just 10 to 20 minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed.
This episode is all about Diabetes – we interview Chris Higgs, a professional practice fellow from the Otago University School of Physiotherapy, who set up the free Dunedin Community Exercise Programme back in 2014. A community-based rehabilitation programme, it is for anyone who has diabetes or has risk factors for developing diabetes (prediabetes). Chris talks about how it got started, and why it is so effective.
We also review some Diabetes Podcasts in our Books on Prescription collection called “Type 2 and you: a guide to living with Type 2 Diabetes”.
In this episode we interview Cathrine Meek, a Clinical Nurse Consultant from Plunket, who joins us to talk about infant safety, such as safe sleep, alcohol consumption and sun safety, which are especially important during the holiday season.
