Soul Sustenance: Daily Meditations for Mental Health

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

Mark Zabawa  takes a very simple approach to staying positive - looking for the positive side in every situation. He has two books out: A Restful Mind — Daily Meditations for Enhancing Mental Health (Hazelden) and Living With Chronic Pain One Day at a Time (Freedom Enterprises), and in both, tries to help readiers achieve a better outlook, even when life is difficult.

Zabawa is involved with a number of charitable organizations, including NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), S.A.V.E. Suicide Awareness and the Minnesota Association of Community Mental Health Programs.

"Recovery from mental illness is a process,” he continues. "It means taking care of ourselves each and every day — spiritually, emotionally, and physically. It means actively working towards change. A Restful Mind is a testament to experience, strength, and hope.” Its daily meditations speak to all of us, regardless of our diagnosis.

The book is easy to use. Each daily meditation takes only a few minutes to go through and helps start (or end) the day on a positive note. It sounds cheesy, but it really does help the day go better when you practice starting with a little positive note.

Mark Zabawa has a degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling and Human Services (A.A.S.) and he has worked at Abbott Northwestern Hospital Chronic Pain Program as a patient monitor and counselor for 10 years. He has had appearances on Knowledge for Wellness, Channel 6, and he's been a Guest Speaker on C.H.U.M. Live Radio Show in Canada.
