TOO many thoughts in your head can ruin your day and keep you from enjoying the best of what life offers. When your mind is racing, you need to take a few moments to calm down. This new book is full of exercises to do just that – the Scottish way.

So, whit’s it a’ aboot? Weel, ye dinnae want tae be runnin’ aboot like a pure bampot. Git yersel’ intae the here an’ noo wi’ these wee pieces o’ heid work tae keep the peace in yer napper.

Whether it’s feeling your feet in the soft Highland heather or tasting the sweetness of a homemade jeely piece, these ‘heid wurk’ exercises will help your worries float away, like bubbles in a glass of ginger.

Authors, Susan Cohen and Ewan Irvine, are both hypnotherapists and mindfulness practitioners who, having seen the tremendous success of books about being mindful this year in particular, saw a gap in the market for a Scottish slant on this popular self-help practice.

Written in a hybrid Scots slang that draws from typical Scottish banter and patter, this book is both practical and funny with mindfulness exercises focusing on yer Grannies’ knittin’, playing in a pipe band, walkin’ doon the fairway at yer favourite club, getting onto the wrang bus tae the fitba’ and getting the taps aff oot the back on a braw Scottish summer’s day.

Its small format and quirky illustrations make this wee book the perfect present for your favourite stress-heid gadgie – that one pal who just needs to chill oot a bit.

So find the time to be mindfoo’. Dinnae fash yersel, keep the heid and remember that when you stop to look around you, the world is pure dead brilliant.

The Wee Book o’ Scottish Mindfooness is available to buy now from all good bookshops and online retailers.

Authors, Susan Cohen and Ewan Irvine, will happily partake in interviews and photo opportunities.
