JUST RELEASED – The Joy of Missing Out by Tonya Dalton

Description

Productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co. Tonya Dalton challenges women to rethink “busy” and intentionally live with a mindset of abundance

Overwhelmed. Too many women are swamped and exhausted by all they strive to do, ending most days feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful. Tonya Dalton, productivity expert and CEO of inkWELL Press Productivity Co., offers these women a liberating shift in perspective: feeling overwhelmed isn’t the result of having too much to do–it’s from not knowing where to start.

In her highly anticipated first book, Dalton inspires women to reject the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more. She shows them how to focus on what’s important to them and then helps them develop their own unique productivity systems. Through her proven liveWELL Method, Dalton provides actionable strategies with relevant exercises that help women to discover their purpose, clarify their priorities, simplify their lives, and finally achieve harmony by embracing the “unbalance” that is inherent in their lives. As a result, women discover they can finally live guilt-free, abundant lives–because living a life centered around their priorities results in more satisfaction and success, both at work and at home.

My Review

With Fall setting in for real now, I always look to find new savory meals. After all, when the hot weather fades and you’re inside a little too much, there’s nothing better to soothe the mind than to cook.

I love to lose myself in the meal that I’m preparing, throwing in all the love I can muster up. I usually dance while cooking, highly recommended… you’re moving, feeling good and doing something that stirs the soul.
Get new ideas, be inspired and get back to nature!
