Read full description of the books:



This award-winning book (e-Lit Awards-Silver Medal, Self-Help category, 2015) draws from numerous interviews and from a pace-of-life survey the author sent out across the country. "Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World" describes three contemporary "dilemmas" that can cause people - whether employed or retired - to habitually maintain an over-hasty pace of life. The book guides readers into easing their pace through the use of small steps towards change. Learning how to work with the anxiety that inevitably arises when we slow down in our hectic world is an important focus of the book, as is an emphasis on readers practicing kindness to themselves throughout what is sure to be an imperfect change process. Contributors attest to how they slowed down and to the rewards that come from rebalancing one's pace. "Slowlutions" specific to the employed, parents, retirees and job-seekers are outlined in later chapters of the book. A book to pick up and read in small spurts and then return to again and again, as one does with a wise friend.

Read information about the author

Ebook Slowing Down in a Speedstressed World: Practical Skills & Kindly Advice read Online! My story begins in New York City, where hustle and bustle was - and is - the daily pace. Over the years, as I've worked in politics, television, midwifery and, for the past 22 years, as a social worker and psychotherapist, I've gradually migrated to smaller and smaller locales. My current hometown of Durham, NC still offers the friendliness that a slower lifestyle encourages, but it, too, is beginning to speed up. In fact, my book had its genesis in a wonderful independent bookstore there, The Regulator Bookshop, where I worked prior to opening my private practice. Over the months, I noticed how impatient customers became in the brief time it took to run their credit card, while others zoomed in and out of the store. I overheard tidbits of conversation about lack of time, or slowing down after this or that ... It occurred to me that I'd never seen a book on slowing down that addressed the anxiety that inevitably arises when people intentionally change their pace in our hurried society. So, I set out to write my book, interviewing nearly 50 people and sending a pace-of-life survey across the country. The book not only provides many ways to slow down, it offers many strategies for working with anxiety and anxious thinking that says "How can I slow down? I've got too much to do!" The book also illustrates the linkage between hurry and tension, as well as between slower pacing and enhanced calm. In 2012, I closed my practice in order to finish the book; right now, I'm busy promoting it. Please let me know if you read the book and it's useful to you or if you have a question - I'd love to hear from you! My email is marian@slowlutions.com Thanks so much for your interest! Marian
