Abstract:

"CrazyBusy - a state of constant frenzy, a symptom of our high-speed, high-tech world - is a national epidemic. Day in and day out, we plunge ourselves into a mad rush of activity, and the resulting brain overload has led to the point where our entire society is suffering from culturally induced ADD. Dr. Edward Hallowell has helped more than a million people free themselves of the distractions and compulsions of ADD. Now he offers the same sound, sane, and accessible guidance for anyone suffering from the harried pace of modern life. BlackBerries, cell phones, and e-mail 24/7; rushed mornings and endless car pools to the kids' soccer games; hurried mealtimes and longer workdays. Being crazybusy saps us of creativity, humanity, and mental well-being. But as Dr. Hallowell argues, this hectic condition can also be an opportunity. Through quick exercises, focused advice on everything from lifestyle to time management, and examples chosen from his extensive clinical experience, Dr. Hallowell goes step-by-step over the process of unsnarling frantic lives. If you find yourself pulled in a million different directions, here at last is the opportunity to stop being busy, start being happy and still get things done"--Unedited summary from book cover.
