Mindful Work – David Gelles
The art of meditation is changing the world of business. In his book, Mindful Work, David Gelles gives real-life case studies of businesses who are incorporating meditation into their working schedules for their employees. If your work force is able to take some time to find peace, they in turn are less stressed by their working environment – making them a better asset to the business so both parties benefit.

The eccentric Ruby Wax is best known for her comedic acting career, yet her books have proved she knows a thing or two about mindfulness. Her book, A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled, is the most humorous of the list as she uses her wit to explain her own personal journey with depression and mindfulness. Wax is candid about the stresses we all face in our daily lives.
This is Happening – Rohan Gunatillake
The creator of the Buddhify app brought some helpful words into a book format for those seeking tips on meditation. It helps to refocus on mindfulness in the digital era; allowing us to include meditation and mindfulness as part of our daily routine, rather than as a way of disrupting it.
