Mind Your Life

How Mindfulness Can Build Resilience and Reveal Your Extraordinary

Meg Salter

From a world-class coach and teacher comes a practical guide for cultivating a truly sustainable mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness can feel like swimming upstream against your own mind. Yet the benefits are clear: enhanced attention, empathy, and resilience—and reduced anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Unfortunately, too many don’t find a practice that works for them and their busy lives.

In this rich resource, Integral Master Coach® and meditation teacher Meg Salter shows you how to pay deep attention to the full range of moment-by-moment sensory experiences—anywhere, anytime. Mind Your Life will teach you to integrate awareness into your everyday life, including during difficult conversations, or when trying to fall (and stay) asleep.

This is not your ordinary mindfulness. Mind Your Life combines elements of Shinzen Young’s Unified Mindfulness system with proven coaching methods for positive change over the long term. Interwoven with the strategies and theory are inspiring stories of ordinary heroes who found that simple changes sustained over the years led to remarkable lives.

Whether you have only a few minutes a day to start, or have been meditating for years, this book is for you. After all, when you mind life, life minds you back.


“The mainstreaming of mindfulness has become something of a fad. Unfortunately, many authors in that genre know much more about the mainstream than they do about the deep end of what mindfulness practice can deliver. Not so with Meg. She has practiced intensely for many decades. And she has personal experience of how a mindfulness practice can provide the ‘big guns’ that deliver the goods when all else fails. In this book, you will find evidence-based coaching strategies to help you turn good intentions into a sustainable practice.”
