Use solitude to beat stress and achieve success.
Do you find the constant stream of daily life (meetings, emails, phone calls, tasks) gets on top of you? Is it difficult for you to find peace and quiet? Do you worry about stress or burn-out? Are you concerned that the everyday is distracting you from what really matters?
If any of these apply to you, then this is the book for you. For thousands of years, human beings have known that the discipline of solitude is the path to finding lasting peacefulness. From Moses and Jesus, to Bill Gates and Nelson Mandela, great people have relied on the power of taking time out. This practical book is full of timeless wisdom on how you can find solitude even in a world which demands your attention 24/7, and on how to use this 'time out' to recharge your batteries, reinvigorate your body, and refocus your life.
In a 'full-on' world, sound-blasted and frenetic, Tina Jefferies' how-to book on accessing peacefulness provides a rich resource. The author is clearly steeped in her subject. As the reader, I find myself drawn by her into the flow of ancient wisdom with accessible and contemporary application. Tina is sharing a way of living life to the full. How? By means of her attractive writing, compelling exploration and hands-on approach. Each of us can be and do far more than we allow ourselves. Tina gives us a great set of practical insights and keys to help move us towards an even more creative and fruitful lifestyle.
