This book not only taught me that meditation is a practice that can be molded into whatever works best for the individual - but also reminded me that anxiety, sadness, uncertainty, and fear are all normal human emotions that everyone experiences. I want to gift this book to everyone I love, because it's an important reminder to protect your inner space. ( )

There Is No Right Way To Meditate (And Other Lessons) by Yumi Sakugawa is not only an incredibly beautiful and easy to digest book, it really urges you to take a step back and reevaluate your own views on what it means to meditate. Although I too once thought that meditation was a rigid practice that may or may not work for me, Sakugawa brings home the fact that meditation is whatever you want it to be. It’s not about HOW you choose to meditate, it’s that you do it at all. That you look inward in order to be your best self.

Am I a sucker for picture books? Yes. Absolutely.
But I’m also a sucker for books that are beautifully illustrated and pack an even greater message.

It’s also surprisingly relaxing to just look at – the illustrations are calming in a way that’s difficult to describe. (Trust me, you’ll understand when you flip through it yourself.)

Although a book is never going to cure those worries and woes of daily life, this book is the closest that I have found to one that puts things into a more realistic perspective. It’s funny, it’s fun, it’s cute, and it’s exactly the sort of book that I think EVERYONE – whether you’re a meditation believer or not – should have on their shelf.

Even though I was sent There Is No Right Way To Meditate in exchange for an honest review, I could never give it enough praise. I’ve read through it countless times before deciding exactly how I wanted to sing it’s praise. But the truth is, no matter how many great things I say, it will never be enough to convey how much I love this book.

I will likely be gifting this to everyone I know this year as it’s the PERFECT stocking stuffer and sends the perfect message to those you love.

*I was provided with a free copy of this book in order to conduct this review, but I cannot sing it's praises enough.*
