I write frequently about conquering the overwhelm and what I am doing, and have been trying to do, since my breast cancer diagnosis. I realized I was operating on "I-must-do-it-all-all-the-time-mode" and I am not certain if my frantic, stressful lifestyle lead to my disease, but it certainly didn't help.
When I was given the opportunity to review the book Say Goodbye To Survival Mode: 9 Simple Strategies To Stress Less, Seep More & Restore Your Passion For Life by Crystal Paine aka The Money Saving Mom, I jumped at the opportunity. I mean who doesn't want to stress less and restore her passion for life? I certainly wanted to see if any of the strategies were truly simple. I am certain you've all read boods about time management and ways to take control of your life that simply turned into more work and more stress. Some time management tips call for ridding yourself of particular tasks or duties but in reality, those tasks are part of your daily routine (ie your job) so they aren't easily tossed aside.
