Top customer reviews
The book is separated into three segments: Explore, Discover, and Live Well. In those are three "fringe principles" each: belief statements. Each belief statement is a chapter with several questions about what you like to do with your spare time, how you spend your time, how you balance life, what you would do if you had more time. A real self-evaluation.
While I believe these are good to do once in awhile, this book wasn't for me. I believe this book is for the woman who honestly spends no time on herself and has zero time for the hobbies she does enjoy. I spend 4+ hours on exercise (something I enjoy) each week, read when I find the time, and try to embroider or something. Once a month or so I get together with girl friends, too. I have "me" time (although I'd take a little more time with my embroidery without stopping every 5 minutes for child-related problems, but I do have time to do it at all).
If you're overwhelmed because you have zero free time - you're running around with your kids, your job takes up so much time, housework just floods you in your spare time - this book is for you!! I think it really could help you pinpoint time when you could do something for you: exercise, spa treatments, reading, writing, crafting.
I do think the book was a little misleading with the subtitle. Going through this book is not going to make you any more creative than you already are if you don't enjoy those things.
Disclaimer: I received this book in order to write an honest review. Others may not share my opinions.
It is built on nine principles in three categories--Explore, Discover and Live Well. There are surveys and questions that help us evaluate our life and activities so that we can make better decisions to feel refreshed.
Turner helps us find time everyday to do things for ourselves so that we can live a fulfilled life. This is an excellent resource to help us discover how to take care of ourselves and how to make time to do so.
