Overworked and Overwhelmed: The Mindfulness Alternative

We rated this book:


To the amusement of some, I was writing my review for Overworked and Overwhelmed: The Mindfulness Alternative by Scott Eblin during a particularly stressful week. I’d like to credit Eblin’s book for helping me make it through. At the very least, Overworked and Overwhelmed has given me a greater focus on how to manage overwhelm. Eblin, who also is a yoga teacher, has a system he’s developed and used to coach many corporate clients. This Life GPS system revolves around three questions that can change your life, when mindfully considered and acted upon. Eblin’s book structure pivots around those three questions, one of which is: How are you when you’re at your best? Chapters provides examples, stories of originally skeptical clients, clear guidance, and encouragement to respond to each of the questions. Each chapter finishes with a series of questions—Coach’s Corner—to reflect upon. I discovered that reviewing the appendix of those helpful questions could help bring more calm. Just taking the time to look at your life and be aware of a different approach to mindfulness can help bring the awareness you’ve been seeking. For our overextended lives, Eblin’s book is a welcome addition.
