Work deadlines, to-do lists, family commitments, pressure to perform... Our frantic lives demand so much from us that we can often feel locked into a cycle of frustration, anxiety and stress, unable to tackle the tasks before us or see a way out of our habitual ways of thinking and doing things. Yet there is a way out. The simple mindfulness techniques at the heart of this book have been proven to enhance creativity, problem solving and decision making. They also dissolve anxiety, stress and depression while enhancing mental resilience. The four week programme takes just 10-20 minutes per day. The easy-to-follow programme works by soothing and clearing your mind, allowing innovative ideas to take form and crystallise. This helps you to spontaneously 'see' the solution to a problem, to conjure up new ideas, or to create works with true insight and flair. The programme also helps build the courage necessary for you to follow your ideas wherever they should lead - and the resilience to cope with any setbacks. It will help your mind work more effectively so that you can solve problems faster, more intuitively and have the inner confidence to drive your ideas forward. This ebook contains download links to 6 meditations that you can use to build an ongoing practice, mixing and matching meditations to suit your circumstances.

The systems that we work within sometimes breed a sense of hopelessness, taking excitement and creativity away from workers. But if we are to help people away from destructive behaviour patterns, self-defeating thought processes, poor skills in parenting, self-care, relationships and communication... If we are to help them create new lives, then we as workers need to feel free to create work that suits their unique needs. We also need to feel happy in our work: effective and professional, but also proud of our personal contribution. The barefoot helper is about celebrating the spirit and embracing the creativity of human beings. It encourages clients and workers to understand who they really are and what they really want; and helps them to create clear goals based on these insights. It draws on spiritual thinking and modern therapies to explore how happiness comes from: doing the least harm; focused effort; clarity of thought; respect; awareness; clear goals; making time both to take action and to stop 'doing things' and experience life directly. Intensely practical and useful, it focuses on where change occurs naturally, and helps us encourage change based on these insights and empowering progress whilst doing the least harm.
