This practical handbook teaches you how to start and stick to a non-woo-woo, scientifically based, zero-BS meditation habit that you can turn to again and again when life and work gets tough.

Qualified meditation teacher and certified life coach Hannah Jane Thompson has been practising meditation for over 11 years, after discovering the difference it made to her own life. As an ambitious but chronically anxious journalist, Hannah suppressed all feelings of not being 'good enough' until one day she was hit with chronic depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. At her absolute lowest point, she discovered meditation, and it quite literally saved her life. Breath by breath, meditation taught her to stop, breathe, accept who she was, and question those negative thoughts and transform them into something a little more kind, positive, and mindfully productive.

Drawing on her own story, her teaching practice and experiences of her clients, Hannah shows you how to harness the power of meditation. Covering everything from comparison and office politics to body image and relationships, Breathe Like a Badass is your no-BS guide to creating a life-changing, burnout-busting emotional toolbox of your own.

Reviews for Breathe Like a Badass: Beat Anxiety and Self Doubt, Calm Your Inner Critic & Build a No-Nonsense Mindfulness and Meditation Toolkit

'Breathe Like a Badass is your modern guidebook for using the principles and practices of mindfulness to navigate the reality of everyday life. While many meditation teachers exude a kind of above it all attitude, Hannah uses humor, relatable anecdotes, and a dose of swearing to make her teachings super relatable. Expect real sh*t from this book: learn how to set badass boundaries; use mindfulness to build your body confidence; and relate to tech, sex, and money in a more mindful way' -- Liza Kindred, author of Eff This! Meditation and Calm Your Anxiety Journal 'With wit, wisdom, and a delightful sense of humor, Hannah Jane Thompson is the meditation teacher to lead you into your meditation practice. If you are stressed out, over-identify with your work, and are in need of a sense of balance, you won't find a more helpful guide to bring you back home to yourself. I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about transforming their lives' -- Lodro Rinzler, Buddhist teacher, author of 7 books including the bestseller The Buddha Walks into a Bar and Take Back Your Mind, co-founder of MNDFL meditation studios
