Are you too busy? Are you always running behind? Is your calendar loaded with more than you can possibly accomplish? Is it driving you crazy? You're not alone. Crazybusy–the modern phenomenon of brain overload–is a national epidemic. Without intending for it to happen, we've plunged ourselves into a mad rush of activity, expecting our brains to keep track of more than they comfortably or effectively can. In fact, as attention deficit disorder expert and bestselling author Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., argues in this groundbreaking new audiobook, brain overload has reached the point where our entire society is suffering from culturally induced ADD.
But as Dr. Hallowell argues, being crazybusy can also be an opportunity. The impulse to be busy can be turned to our advantage once we get in touch with our needs and take charge of how we really want to spend our time. Through quick exercises (perfect for busy people), focused advice on everything on everything from lifestyle to time management, and examples chosen from his extensive clinical experience, Dr. Hallowell goes step-by-step over the process of unsnarling frantic lives.
In CRAZYBUSY, Dr. Hallowell offers sound, sane, and accessible guidance for anyone suffering from the harried pace of modern life. If you find yourself pulled in a million different directions, here at last is the opportunity to stop being busy, start being happy, and still get things done.
