Way cheaper than hours of therapy, Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy is your go-to guide for zen!
What if I told you that a lot of what keeps you unbelievably busy is not only pointless, but avoidable, nonsensical and entirely driven by your own fears, insecurities and ego? You'd probably want to slap me, if you could find the time, right?
Don't worry, I was once just like you- exhausted, harried, overcommitted and flummoxed as to what to cut back on. I'm not completely cured, but for the first time in years I have room to breathe and to think about what kind of life I really want to live. And I have Buddhism to thank for this.
In this book I've compiled the teachings, ideas and practices that got me to this point. Buddhism helped me dig deep to discover why I was determined to do so much, and why I was so afraid to stand still and be alone with myself. It's not hippy-trippy stuff, believe me. Buddhism is just as relevant and practical in our modern world as it's ever been.
As crazy as it sounds, I'm asking you to add one more thing to your list today- read this book, and let it help you free yourself from the grind of your unbelievable busyness. Live the peaceful life you know you deserve and be the person you want to be.
Meshel Laurie is a comedian and radio and television personality. She is a regular panellist on The Project, and has also appeared on Spicks and Specks, Good News Week and Rove. She is the author of The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny, Buddhism for Break-ups and Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy, and produces and hosts two of Australia's most downloaded podcasts, Australian True Crime and The Nitty Gritty Committee.
Meshel Laurie has had a very varied career but whether she's working the front desk at a brothel or anchoring drive-time radio, it's always had one common thread: she is a self- confessed workaholic. Thankfully, over the years she's learnt to temper her tendencies with a bit of Buddhist perspective - and you can too! Meshel shares her own experiences with wit and wisdom and explores how to navigate the modern workplace (and stay sane), how to handle difficult relationships with colleagues, how to deal with work stress, and - of course - how to achieve that ever-elusive work-life balance.
Dear Reader - This is not a book about coping with unbelievable busyness. It's a book about making it stop.
