It seems like we’re all busy these days. Unbelievably busy. Self confessed workaholic Meshel Laurie knows better than anyone what that’s like. But as a practising Buddhist, she’s discovered some principles to help temper her tendencies – and you can too!
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.
