Summary
Exploring how to juggle the demands of work, children and ageing parents, Meshel shares her own experiences with wit and wisdom, drawing on her long and varied career- from working front desk at a brothel to anchoring a drive-time radio show. She asks- why are we all so busy? How much of our busyness is unhelpful? And what changes can we make to find some peace? Honest, hilarious and heartfelt, Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy will show you how to stay sane in the modern workplace, how to handle difficult relationships and how to achieve greater balance in your life

"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." --Back cover
