Mindfulness for NQTs: Strategies, techniques and practices for all who work with children and young people

Welcome to my latest book which I self-published on Amazon Kindle on 6th September 2022. It costs only £1.99 and contains an offer of a 25% discount off courses for those who buy the book. There is a link below. 

The book contains strategies, techniques and practices for mindfulness and is aimed at NQTs and all who work with children and young people. As a former school teacher and teacher trainer, both in the UK and abroad, I wanted to share mindfulness techniques in a way that I have used them over the past 25+ years of my career in Education.

A lot of the content has come from blogs from this blog as in the previous 2 years, I have posted everyday throughout August with a technique etc for NQTs to try out ahead of starting their new role (as the new academic year starts in September in the UK). Perhaps, you have already read some of these blogs. 

This book brings them all together in one place and I have also added some more content either in the monthly format or in the extras/alternatives section. There are also some parts adapted from 2 of my previous books: ‘Being the Best You Can Be’ and ‘Mindful Walks to be in the present moment’. If you are interested in those books too then it’s good to know that Being the Best You Can Be is only 99p and will always be that price as i wish to help as many people as possible access the information shared within it and Mindful Walks is currently priced at £1.99 during the launch of this book and will return to its usual price of £4.99 in January 2023. 

There is also a lot of FREE material shared on my social media channels: Being the Best You Can Be on Facebook and You Tube channel, alisonlaycock23 on twitter and Being.best.mindfulness on instagram. I am also happy to answer any questions through email info@beingthebestyoucanbe.org. 

If you do purchase the book and wish to use the discount on one of the mindfulness or other courses through my business then please visit http://www.beingthebestyoucanbe.org to check out all the business offers. 

Being the Best You Can Be: Tips and encouragement to lead your best daily life

In October 2019, my first book was published on Kindle and this is what I wrote on this blog about it.

On Friday, I published my book. Now, that’s a sentence I’ve been waiting to say since I was a young girl writing short stories for fun as well as reading any book I could. Normally, this blog would contain a book review, however even in my excitement I won’t be doing that. So, I thought instead as the author (smiles proudly), I could write a little about the writing and publishing process as well as a bit about the content of the book and certain decisions I made.

We all walk our own Camino

This isn’t a book review as after all how can I possibly review my own book!  I won’t review it, however I will share it with you on this blog. Yes, this is my travel book and no, this is not the one I may have already mentioned. The book I’ve recently written and uploaded to Kindle as an e-book is called ‘We all walk our own Camino’ and is about my Camino journey and how it has affected me and my life.
