The full title is five good minutes: 100 morning practices to help you stay calm & focused all day long. The copyright date is 2005, and the authors are Jeffrey Brantley, M.D. & Wendy Millstine. According to the book, he is "founder and director of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke University's Center for Integrative Medicine", and she is a "freelance writer, published poet, and performance artist." The book is divided into three parts: a brief introduction, a chapter on how to practice, and 100 practices. The idea is to read one each morning and practice (sort of like a meditation) for five minutes, focusing on whatever that morning's practice is (some examples are, gratitude, connecting with nature, realaxation, etc.), and try to remember it and re-focus on it whenever you feel stressed. I found many of the practices to be very helpful. Others I couldn't relate to, but out of 100 there were bound to be some of those in there. Over all, it's definitely worth your time to try it out.
