Lifestyle coach and Poised Inc. founder Yvonne Tally discusses her essential book, Breaking Up with Busy: Real-Life Solutions for Overscheduled Women.
Overbooking and under-sleeping have become status symbols, having it all synonymous with doing it all, and uni-tasking only for under-achievers. It may not be possible to return to a time when driving wasn't a time to read messages, family dinner peak Tweet time, and "playing" with kids at the park the perfect time to check Facebook, but Yvonne Tally wants to give the millions of women who are tired of being tired some options. A successful career woman herself, Tally knows that quality self-time isn't working on the phone while getting a mani / pedi or guzzling cocktails to wind down. She stresses the benefits of living a more sane and balanced life -- from longevity, looks, and libido to self-actualization and spiritual connection. To get there, she details methodical, incremental ways to change habits, transform thinking, and reconnect with one's own unique, personal sense of play and pleasure.
