Slowing Down To the Speed of Life How To Create a More Peaceful Simpler Life From the Inside Out  Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stay in the fast lane without losing your sanity: Author of the phenomenal bestseller Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Richard Carlson and coauthor Joseph Bailey deliver a more extensive manual on how we can improve the quality of our lives without going to unrealistic extremes.

While Other Books Urge Us to Reduce Activities or drastically alter our lifestyles, Slowing Down to the Speed of Life teaches us that feeling harried starts in the mind. Offering simple, effective ways to reorganize our thinking, Carlson and Bailey show us how to reshape our experience of living without sacrificing productivity.

Illustrated with useful exercises, charts, and diagrams, as well as inspiring personal reflections, Slowing Down to the Speed of Life helps us learn to:

Recognize rushed thought processes and access healthy, relaxed feelings

Understand that other people's habits, attitudes, behaviors, and moods don't have to affect us negatively

Stay focused on the task at hand and enhance our creativity and achievement

Know that there is plenty of time to build meaningful relationships, master seemingly hectic schedules, and maintain a healthy calm in the midst of life's storms
