Ten to Zen: Ten Minutes a Day to a Calmer, Happier You (Paperback)Owen O'Kane (author)
- Coming soon
Each morning most of us will spend about ten minutes in the shower, ten minutes making and eating breakfast but no time at all clearing our minds. Ten to Zen is a simple, effective and fuss-free guide to help you start your day in the right head-space to prepare for the challenges it may bring.
Ten to Zen uses a combination of four therapeutic models - Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy - in a simple, easy-to-follow programme.
You will learn:
> How to settle your mind quickly
> How to focus and retrain your brain on dealing with stress
> How to restructure unhelpful patterns of thinking
> How to develop ways of communicating that are more effective
Ten to Zen was developed by Owen O'Kane to encourage new principles for living based on his experience as a psychotherapist and his many years of caring for the dying in the field of palliative care, which has hugely influenced how he works and how he views life.

When it comes to mental health, I suspect that all quick-fixes are bogus so am usually a sceptic of the self-help genre. Owen O'Kane's book is a proud exception.Ten to Zen is clearly a work written by a serious clinician. It is not about providing some sort of perfect path to inner peace, rather it is an honest, eloquent, no-nonsense set of easy-to-use strategies for anybody seeking to find a way of improving their mental and emotional well being. I thoroughly recommended it. -- Robert Rinder
