Publisher's Summary

There's no doubt about it: these days we are just too busy. With the conveniences of technology, we're compelled to get more done in less time and end up constantly striving for the next thing - rarely stopping to consider if it's something we even want. As a result, we end up missing out on the things that truly matter: our relationships, the activities we love, quiet time to reflect and replenish our energy.

Valorie Burton's How Did I Get So Busy? is the solution for anyone who feels perpetually overwhelmed and overworked: a simple, effective 28-day program to help you rediscover your true priorities, shift out of overdrive, and reclaim your life and schedule. Built around Burton's "Ten Commandments of Self-Care," each day presents an easy-to-follow task to help you strip away the meaningless activities that occupy your time and make room for what nourishes you--mind, body, and spirit. The tasks are simple but yield big rewards.

Divine Intervention

I'm transitioning from a career of 21 years of being extremely busy all the time. I don't recall how I came across this book and must chalk it up to divine intervention. It was what I needed to begin the process of reclaiming me and my life before moving forward. It was insightful with wonderful ways to reconnect and reset my priorities. It was inspirational in a warm and affirming manner that helped me to fully embrace its offerings. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to not be so busy as to miss life.
