This book is a guide to finding happiness by taking in the beauty right in front of you.

Cameron Diaz listed Everyday Enlightenment as one of her top 2012 reads: 'We live in such a fast paced world it's easy not to take time to tend to your inner self, but it is necessary to take a moment and be still in mind and body, to be more conscious of the way that we are engaging with the world around us. Using teachings from the Buddhist philosophy, Everyday Enlightenment gives you practical tools to deal with the everyday challenges of being human in our modern society.'
