Review by Library Journal Reviews

Tally, a neurolinguistic programming master practitioner, gets right to the point in this text that asserts that "being busy" has become an ethos for women, a cultural expectation that too often determines one's worth. To combat this mind-set, the author proposes an alternate plan using her Fitness-Food-Attitude and Five-Step Super Solutions Process for "overscheduled women" to enjoy a calmer and more balanced life. Throughout, Tally intersperses case studies, quizzes, exercises, and her own story and solutions, which range from mindfulness meditation and delegation of duties to finding that "Friday state of mind," to break the cycle of frenetic activity. VERDICT Not especially new but still valuable instruction for women who want to slow down but aren't sure where to begin. Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
