Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Imagine your perfect day.
What if that perfect day was every day?

You're probably doing a lot--taking care of your family, killing it at your job, volunteering, organizing, scheduling, delegating. At the end of all of that, do you have any time or energy left to take care of the most important person: you?

Self-care movement leader Suzanne Falter gets it. In fact, she lived the life that every woman today feels expected to lead, chasing career goals while balancing the commitment of raising a family. But after facing an unthinkable tragedy, Suzanne transformed her identity as a stressed-out workaholic to find her way back to wholeness and balance. In The Extremely Busy Woman's Guide to Self-Care, Suzanne shares simple, bite-sized suggestions to help you ease onto the path of effective self-care in a way that feels doable rather than demanding.

The road to soothing self-care is right in front of you--all you have to do is say yes to the journey and take the first step.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this empowering offering, Falter (The Joy of Letting Go) maps out a detailed, adaptable action plan for the overscheduled woman who'd like to take better care of herself, but can't find the time to. After Falter's 22-year-old daughter, Teal, died of an unexplained heart condition in 2012, Falter first fell apart emotionally, and then (using many of the tips she offers to readers) climbed out of despair to live her best life. Punctuating chapters with encouraging quotes from Teal's journal, Falter gently pushes readers out of their comfort zones to first get into the self-care mind-set (understanding one's needs, setting boundaries, asking for help, taking action, and building self-care into the day), before exploring self-care essentials (feeding the brain by indulging in a favorite hobby, getting sufficient sleep, taking regular vacations, and exercising) and ways of working self-care into one's life. Knowing that many women put themselves last on their list of priorities, Falter frequently injects exercises designed to force readers out of that state, such as establishing detailed "boundary checklists." Although the book is marketed to women, Falter's sensible, loving advice applies to any reader. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Dec.)"
