A World of Pausabilities: A Exercise in Mindfulness

We rated this book:


This book has a funny title, like a joke with the word possibility but meaning “pause.”

It says that when things happen and get you upset, there are a lot of ways to feel better about it. You just stop and take a pause.

A pause can be still and quiet. Or it can be done moving around. You may concentrate on your breath, like breathing in and filling your belly, or just draw or doodle. My favorite one is to curl up in a blanket and snuggle tight (better if my mom or dad do it with me).

A pause can be taken when you pay attention to things: the flavors of something you are eating or the feeling or the noise of the rain. You want to turn off any phone or computer or tv when you take a pause and just focus on something different. If you feel a lot of feelings, you want to know that they are not right or wrong, they just are what they are.

I really liked this book. I’ve learned a lot about “pausabilities.” When I get upset, I think of how I can take a pause and calm down.
