Many of us live on autopilot, often so guarded that we don't experience the richness that life has to offer. How can we find real happiness amid the chaos, so we don't reach the end of our life and feel like we missed it?

In Stop Missing Your Life, mindfulness teacher Cory Muscara takes us on a journey into the heart of what is required for real change, growth, and happiness. He exposes how the phrase "be present" has become little more than a platitude, imbued with the misguided message to be present just for the sake of being present, and reveals how to achieve true Presence a quality of being that is unmistakably attractive about a person, and one that only comes when we've peeled back the layers of guarding that prevent us from being our full, honest, and integrated selves in the world.
Muscara shows how we build internal walls, what he describes as a "Pain Box" inhibiting us from living a deeply connected and meaningful life. He offers a four-part FACE model (Focus, Allow, Curiosity, and Embodiment) that helps chip away at those walls and builds our capacity to experience the richness of our lives Stop Missing Your Life ultimately teaches how we can find peace in the chaos and become better people for our families, our communities, and our world.

I don't usually read self help books, but I really enjoyed Stop Missing Your Life by Cory Muscara. The tone of this book is helpful and informal. Cory shares aspects of his own life and how he came to be interested in mindfulness and meditation. Cory summarizes the science behind meditation and the steps and practices the reader can take to start the journey toward mindfulness. The content is practical, non-judgmental, accessible and humerous at times. Cory gives examples of some of the people he has worked with to help the reader understand his points. There are so many good ideas and strategies in this book I feel like I could read it several times and still learn something each time. The part about tidying up your cell phone to minimize time wasting distractions was particularly helpful.
