Book Recommendation: Breaking Busy

The alarm clock’s blast triggers a flutter of heavy eyelids. We rise from a bed hardly warmed and stagger to the kitchen, fumbling to pour a cup of synthetic energy. Before the fog thins from two or three mugs of caffeine, pressing tasks fly at us as if borne from an automatic pitching machine. Family, pets, or phone calls pound us before breakfast. With half-combed hair, we spring from the house to taxi and errand while checking email and social media. A whirlwind of activity harries us until the clock yawns its arms long past a decent hour. No sooner do we hit the unmade sheets than the alarm blares that it’s time to start over again.
When friends declare they’ve missed us or relatives inquire about our lives, we toss up apologies punctuated with, “crazy busy.” In spite of our foundation as “land of the free and home of the brave,” America’s modern identity has shifted toward the land of task-slaves and home of the busy.¬†Alli Worthington’s new book, Breaking Busy, invites readers to escape bondage to a lifestyle of drudgery and chaos.
With transparency and humor, Worthington gently takes our hand to lead us toward a life of fulfillment. She offers tips for editing the life-draining busyness from our schedule to make room for a lifestyle of purpose and blessings. We can optimize our lives by carving space for what matters most.
Breaking Busy addresses the urgency tyrants besetting the various aspects of our lives. Alli Worthington warms readers with delightful anecdotes while taking on issues related to relationships, work, thoughts, spirituality, and esteem. Bite-sized chapters overflow with practical insights and conclude with a short list of action steps.
Worthington captures the heart of our busy epidemic and offers realistic solutions with a delightful, personable style. I recommend Breaking Busy to America’s bleary-eyed zombies, or anyone whose default reply sounds something like, “crazy busy.”
Breaking Busy is available on Amazon. Share your thoughts on the busy epidemic with us. I look forward to reading your comments.
