I Want to Be Well: #bookreview

 

I Wanna Be Well: How a Punk Found Peace and You Can Too was not a book that I had planned on reading. Yet, when someone told me about this book last week, it moved to the top of the reading list.

I was curious to see what lessons Miguel Chen could teach about inner peace. Would readers be able to understand? Is he going to blow smoke up our asses?

The lessons about meditation are easy to understand. It would also be easy to go back and reread whatever lesson that you wanted to work on for the day.

Chen definitely did not try to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. He was very honest about what worked for him and also talked about different things that people could do to have success with meditation and yoga.

Chen has a great sense of humor. It seems like he can relate to people and vice versa. There was cursing, which does not offend me personally. It’s just the way that he talks. So if you’re a prude and easily offended, you may not like the cursing. If you can get past the cursing, then you may benefit from what he is trying to teach about meditation.

There is a section about not being able to move forward because you are dreaming about finding a time machine. This part really struck a chord with me. I’m always wishing for a time machine. However, this is probably keeping me from living in the present.

If you’re interested in beginning meditation or yoga, then this book is a good place to start. I Wanna Be Well can be found at the following links.
