BREAKING UP WITH BUSY
Real-Life Solutionsfor Overscheduled Women
Women today have reset the bar, and it’s high. They collectively aim into the stratosphere: to be the most creative and dynamic professionals, the parents with all the answers, the most understanding and loving partners, and the best and most reliable friends. Their perfectionistic expectations have led to an unrealistic and terribly demanding mind-set, and they multitask from one event to another, silently murmuring under their exhausted, coffee-soaked breath,
“Something’s got to give. I’m tired of it always being me!”
Women said they could do it all, so they got it all.
All being family, career, and self-fulfillment. Only the price many women pay to run this race includes health challenges, career delays, more financial responsibility, and more societal expectations that they should be able to do it all without missing a meeting, losing their cool, or looking frazzled.
“If you’re one of the 55 million women struggling to reclaim your days, without the flurry of hustle and rush, your fIrst step out of the busy race is to stop and take a break,” writes Yvonne. “This book gives you an effective - and fun - process for bringing back your brand of well-deserved enjoyment and calm. You’ll decrease the hurried frenzy of
getting it all done and learn to lighten up on yourself and to reassess your expectations.”
Breaking Up with Busy helps women identify what type of Overscheduled Woman (OSW) they are, while recognizing the signs that lead to their busy pace. Yvonne details a powerful Five-Step Super Solutions Process as a go-to tool for dropping busy habits, and offers a host of mindfulness-based, busy-busting solutions throughout the book. Also included are fIfty-two inspiring refreshers and reminders designed to carry readers through each week of the year.
“This book will be your magic wand, your golden ticket, and your secret sauce,” writes Yvonne. “As you step forward into your light, you lay the path for these other women to follow. Together, we can change the paradigm of what
having it all means, and in the process, establish a juggernaut of change, so that every woman finds herself to be enough. Breaking up with busy is the first step.”
