We live in a culture where grand achievements and small waistlines are complimented … where busyness is a badge of honor … where text messages replace face-to-face contact … where day-to-day responsibilities overwhelm and downtime is extinct. People are hungry for simple ways to live better and love more because knowing how does not come instinctively nor easily in this culture of overwhelm.
Whether readers are just starting their journey toward a life that really matters or have been at it awhile, Hands Free Life will teach parents, singles, women, and men how to create habits that will allow them to invest in the most significant parts of their life.
With a Hands Free Life perspective, readers have the power to look back and see they didn’t just manage life, they actually lived it—and lived it well.
~ Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive
