Publisher's Summary

If you've been diagnosed with OCD, you already understand how your obsessive thoughts, compulsive behavior, and need for rituals can interfere with everyday life. Maybe you've already undergone therapy or are in the midst of working with a therapist. It's important for you to know that life doesn't end with an OCD diagnosis. In fact, it's possible to not only live with the disorder, but also live joyfully. This practical and accessible guide will show you how.

In Everyday Mindfulness for OCD, you'll discover how you can stay one step ahead of your OCD. You'll learn about the world of mindfulness and how living in the present moment nonjudgmentally is so important when you have OCD. You'll also explore the concept of self-compassion - what it is, what it isn't, how to use it, and why people with OCD benefit from it. Finally, you'll discover daily games, tips, and tricks for outsmarting your OCD, meditations and mindfulness exercises, and much, much more.

Living with OCD is challenging - but it doesn't have to define you. If you're tired of focusing on how "hard" living with OCD is and are looking for fun ways to make the most of your unique self, this book will be a breath of fresh air.

must for any veteran

look back at all the people who spoke to you about why you are the way you are from the military. bunch of bull crap when you listen to this and realize that it all chocks up to your OCD and OCPD from years of institutionalization and indoctrination.

I do not agree with how they reference medication in the book though and do not advise anything other than holistic myself

Breath of fresh air

Compared to some of the other ocd books I've read, this book feels more like it was written with true understanding and empathy as apposed to the scientific study and clinical analytical style books on ocd.

Its a real breath of fresh air and a true step towards freedom, I feel like ocd sufferers need more simplicity, and this book is just that. I think OCD and other conditions are sometimes overcomplicated by medical professionals, and although analysis is important I believe it can be counter productive for an OCD sufferer, this is because needing to know all the details about the condition can become a compulsion in itself.

Good Enough Gunge

This makes for quite a depressing read as Jon Hershfield reveals there is NO cure for OCD, you've just got to have a relationship with it. Yikes!

There's not much here that you can't pick up from OCD discussions online such as OCD Stories Podcast and anxiety Podcasts from Dr Soph, Poppy Jamie and Caroline Foran. Jon's interview on OCD Stories will give you more than this book.

We're basically taught self compassion and the ever so discussed topic of mindfulness.

Some of the tips are helpful though, especially the gunge from the tap and the good enough answer to uncertainty.

It's worth a read but it goes on way too much about mindfulness which could've easily been much shortened. Still there are some interesting points about how OCD has its relationship with us.

I was disappointed there wasn't more about OCD here but Jon does explain at the end that this wasn't his focus for the book.

It's depressing leaving little hope and the bland performance without any humour on the audio doesn't help.
