From two experts on the psychology of behavior change comes A Mindful Year, the first book of its kind to join the age-old wisdom of mindfulness with cognitive behavioral science—the best-tested set of practices for alleviating stress and anxiety.
At a time when there have never been more ways to connect with one another, it has also never been easier to lose track of the people and passions we hold most dear. The demands of the day can leave us feeling exhausted and uninspired, while alerts and notifications constantly tug at our attention. We fall into unhealthy patterns that can be all too difficult to break.
Written from friend to friend, one day at a time, A Mindful Year invites you to start a new pattern—one that begins with taking just a few quiet moments to reconnect with what is most important, each day. As practical as it is inspirational, A Mindful Year marries moments of mindful reflection with calls to action—daily nuggets of wisdom paired with friendly encouragement to live in a way that is grounded, authentic, and compassionate.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the flood of everyday life, to become disconnected from the things that really make us us—to get lost. Thankfully, simply being open and attentive to the present moment can help us find a sense of space and ease and get back on the right track. With A Mindful Year as your guide, reconnect with what matters most.

A practicing psychologist—one of the top popularizers of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)—offers a fresh, welcome approach for treating mental health issues that speaks to our times, blending mindfulness and spirituality with CBT to effectively overcome negative thinking, achieve deep healing, and truly attain lasting peace.
Mental health professionals have many science-based techniques for alleviating symptoms like anxiety and depression. However, these reductive approaches often don’t deliver the lasting peace we long for. Practicing psychologist and one of the top popularizers of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dr. Seth Gillihan believes we need to do more than relieve our symptoms to become healthy and whole. To achieve long-lasting health and well-being, we must embrace the spiritual in our healing.

He reveals how we can use this method in our daily lives to master negative thoughts and choose the right actions to become fully present and at peace.
This extraordinary guide teaches us how to retrain our minds to banish the stubborn lies we tell ourselves and adapt new healthful and spiritual practices that can help us focus on the deep truths of our existence—that we are perfect in our imperfections, and most important, that we are beings deserving of love.
