Health, they say, is wealth. Only that in this book, the author did not explain just one’s physical well-being but went on to explain it in terms of the body, spirit, and mind. Keith W Fiveson wrote this non-fiction book titled The Mindfulness Experience: 8 Strategies to Live Life Now to educate the readers on how to live the best life.

The book is divided into eight chapters, of which each chapter represents the eight strategies to live a healthy life. It discussed the mind and body and methods of developing them with their benefits. It also talked about various exercises. Not only that, but it continued with the spirit, fuel, and recharge. The author emphasized the importance of developing our spirituality, eating a proper diet, and getting enough sleep and rest. Our environment, relationships, and aspirations were also explained in full detail. The author defined how our environment and our relationship with people affect our lives. He used his failures (failed marriages and a cancer patient) to educate the reader. Grab a copy of this book to learn how to live your best life in good health, sound mind, and prosperity.

Firstly, I loved the book structuring. It was like an essay. It has an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The body (each chapter) was then further divided into subtopics. The book included images and a long list of references. The diction was easy and uncommon words were broken down and explained in detail. All these made the book straightforward to read and understand. Also, the list of references showcased that this was a well-researched book.

Secondly, the author’s inclusion of a poem in a part of the book lifted my spirits as a lover of poetry. While explaining his childhood, Keith W Fiveson talked about how introverted he was and how badly it affected him later in life. His social life was so shattered, and it was evident that if he could rewind the hand of time, he would correct those things. That part taught me to be more receptive to relationships. In the acknowledgments, the author’s gratitude to his wife for being supportive support was beautiful. It showed how much he cherished his wife.

Thirdly, this book was highly educative. For example, the book talked about proper diet, recharging and relaxing our bodies, meditation, and exercise. Besides that, the author explained the appropriate ways of doing those things per moment and Feng Shui (the right room colour, arrangements, and effects of exercise on our body). I must confess I felt privileged reading this book. From reading this book, I learned terms like Sonder (the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as our own, populated worries) and Spiritual Bypassing (a situation where humans neglect spirituality and socialization for the pursuit of money).

Finally, there was absolutely nothing to dislike about the book, as everything was in order. The author sought to educate and inform people on how he has learned to live life for readers to avoid his own mistakes. The book was also professionally edited, as I found only two grammatical errors while reading. Based on the positive points listed, I am rating the book 4 out of 4 stars.

In conclusion, I would recommend this book to people that are depressed and tired of recording numerous failures in life. Even teenagers are welcome to read as the book gave tips to excellent physical, spiritual, social, emotional, psychological, and financial well-being. It was a piece of comprehensive information. Readers will critically rethink their lifestyles after reading this book.

I'm excited about the fact that the author has included poetry in a book like this. I'm a lover of poetry as well, and I guess it'll just make the reading experience more personal.
