A recipe for balance

Mastering mindfulness and setting yourself up for success


Think meditation is too hard? Balance life coaches Lyndall Mitchell and Shannah Kennedy believe mindfulness and mastering your breathing are simple, essential meditation skills that can help you live more fully and improve vitality and create better health and calm.

Chaos to Calm gives readers the essential skills needed for meditation in “bite size pieces” through the chapters:

The miracle of breath: create space and clarity
Magnify your moments: mastering mindfulness

“It’s the starter skills,” says Lyndall. “So many people think that meditation is 20 minutes, on top of a mountain, wearing purple pants and with incense,” said Lyndall.

“(But) I can just take three deep breaths right now and I will be meditating on my breath,” she said.

“You cannot breathe deeply and worry at the same time. Breathe. Let the worry go. Breathe. Allow the love and intuition in.” – Sonia Choquette

“Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgement, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment”

With 16 chapters on a broad range of topics, Deborah asks Lyndall and Shannah if they suggest doing a “book boot camp” as a way to find success through the book.

“I’m not one for radical change, as you know small change is better because it’s long term,” says Lyndall.

“Just do one chapter, reflect on it, implement it, support yourself through the process and then move onto the next chapter,” said Lyndall.

“Then you’re doing things well rather than trying to do too much,” she said.
