"I have seen this simple, practical strategy help many people discover a more peaceful, even a more meaningful life".

"So many people wake up, rush to get ready, grab a cup of coffee and charge out the door to work. After working all day, they return home, tired. The same is usually true for men and women who stay home with their children. They get up just in time to start doing things for the kids. There is virtually no time for anything else. Whether you work, realize a family, or both, for the most part you are too tired to enjoy ant time left for you. As a solution to the tiredness, the assumption is often made, "I'd better get as much sleep in as I can." So, your free time is spent sleeping. For many people this creates a deep longing in the heart. Surely there must be more to life than work, children and sleep!

"Another way of looking at your fatigue is to consider that a lack of fulfillment and a sense of being overwhelmed both contribute to your tiredness. And, contrary to popular logic, a little less sleep and a little more time for you might be just what you need to combat the fatigue".
