In the midst of our fast-fast world,
filled with time pressure and stress -
it's no wonder nearly every one of us
Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest Brigid Schulte -
author of OVERWHELMED: Work, Love, And Play
When No One Has The Time - as a harried
mother of two, was stunned by a report
that insisted American women had 30 hours
of leisure each week ... and set out
to discover the roots that give rise
to overwhelm in our modern life.
It's no wonder so many feel time is like
a “rabid lunatic” running naked and screaming
as your life flies past you - as we worry about
all there is to do and the pressure of feeling
like we’re never have enough time to do it all,
or do it well.
Brigid, an award-winning journalist for the Washington Post,
set out to understand the historical and cultural roots of overwhelm,
and will share how it is “contaminating” our experience of time,
how time pressure and stress is resculpting our brains and
shaping our workplaces, our relationships and squeezing
the space that the Greeks said was the point of living a
Good Life: that elusive moment of peace called leisure.
We'll be guided by two questions:
Why are things the way they are?
and, How can they be better?
Join Julie Ann and Brigid as we discover
how neuroscience, and the science
of both play and leisure,
can lead us to illuminating insights -
and a hopeful path forward to shift
out of overwhelm - and into a state
of balance, and yes, even serenity.
