Time for Me: Self Care and Simple Pleasures for Women Who Do Too Much (Paperback)
In TIME FOR ME, author Helene Lerner offers women trying to do it all, four Power Keys so that they can enjoy a more joyful and balanced life. For women who are out in the trenches every day trying to do too much, this book offers simple pleasures to nourish your spirit and simple solutions to find time for yourself. Summon the courage to do things differently. It's your life and it only happens once, why not make it a great one?
Women are notorious for taking care of everyone else first, exhausting themselves and losing their spark in the process. Time for Me is for any woman who feels stretched too thin, burnt out, or ready to find a better work-life balance. Helene helps women figure out if they're doing too much, asking readers to reflect and journal on different scenarios in their life, such as:
- You get up in the morning and no matter how much sleep you've had, you're still tired.
- You look in the mirror and your eyes seem dull and without sparkle.
- You get ready to go to work and your routine seems mechanical. You feel as if you could do your tasks blindfolded.
- Although you like your job and consider yourself powerful, you lack the enthusiasm you once had.
Then she provides four power keys for what she calls the Time for Me Program, an easy plan to help women nourish their spirit and find contentment in their lives.
