The Joy of Actually Giving a F*ck: How Kindness Can Cure Stress and Make You Happy

David R. Hamilton

Learn how practicing the art of kindfulness can support your mental and physical health, assist with memory and concentration, and help you find true happiness.

Kindfulness encapsulates all that mindfulness is but expands it with the addition of kindness. It brings all the benefits that mindfulness does and much more. Research has shown that kindfulness as a practice boosts happiness, relaxes the nervous system, reduces blood pressure and inflammation, helps to relieve muscular (especially back) pain, and even reduces the rate of wear and tear at the genetic level. Kindfulness takes us out of ourselves and our troubles and stresses, and shifts our focus onto the needs and well-being of others. It warms us from the inside.

This book is an invitation to bring kindness to work, to our neighborhoods, and into our homes. Kindfulness inspires us to see the best in each other, to value each other, and to treat each other with respect. It guides us to empathize with people's challenges, to walk a mile or two in their shoes, and inspires us to do what we can to help. But kindfulness does not equate to being soft or a pushover. It can be fierce, passionate, and energy fuelled. It can be loud. Kindfulness can inspire us to laugh together, to dance together, to sing at the top of our voices. Kindfulness is a celebration of our humanness.

This book will teach you how to expand mindfulness away from self-focus with kindness, and provides a set of guidelines for living more kindfully. You will discover how kindfulness is both a practice and a way of being in everyday life that can bring us the joy and contentment we all crave.
