Publisher's Summary

It's not about doing more.

It's about doing what matters.

As a busy mom with three young kids and a career, number one national best-selling author Christy Wright knows what it’s like to try to do it all and be stretched too thin. After years of running on empty, she realized she had to do something different. It wasn’t just a matter of saying no to a few things. She had to figure out why she felt overwhelmed, overcommitted, and out of balance.

Here’s what she discovered: Life balance isn't something you do. It's something you feel. The great news is you can feel balanced - even in your busy life.

In Take Back Your Time, Christy redefines what balance is and reveals the clear path to actually achieve it. You'll learn how to:

  • Identify what balance looks like in your unique situation and season.
  • Find confidence in the choices that are right for you.
  • Feel peace even during chaotic times.
  • Learn how to be present for your life and actually enjoy it!

You weren’t created to live busy and burnt out, unhappy and unfulfilled. You shouldn’t be haunted by some elusive idea of balancing it all. There’s more for you right now. Today. And it starts with taking back your time the guilt-free way.

Exhausting start to book

Constant rhetorical questions take up much of the space of the first part of the book. I regret this purchase.

Life Changing!

Very thankful I stumbled across this. Christy does an excellent job explaining her concepts clearly and making them applicable to daily life.

I’ve been changed listening to this book! My life (and to do list) feels so much better and clearer now.

I first heard about Christy in an interview on a podcast and decided to try this audio book. So glad I did!

Great thought questions but

Questions made me think and I definitely relate to the overwhelm but a few too many stories about the kids and Christian beliefs that to me would exclude a lot of people. I absolutely appreciate the info and her honesty and devotion to her faith but too many kid stories for someone who doesn’t have kids made it a little less relatable for me but overall the content was excellent and adaptable and I thought the pace and delivery were great. I for sure got some insight from it and have listened more than once but just skipped through many of the stories.

Eye opening

This book was so good for my soul! It really put things in perspective to what needs to be done and thing we want done! What things we can cut out and embracing our life! It was a slap in the face for the chapter on putting down your phone! I really need to rely on airplane mode more to be present!

No access to PDF, but a reasonably good listen.

I actually really enjoy Christy's books, they're easy listening, and always prompt some thought processes that I know I have, but need some reinforcing. I was disappointed, however, that the workbook was referenced so many times, but not provided as an accompanying PDF, when I went to the website described, you need to download the book again (and pay again) to gain access to the PDF. Perhaps this can be addressed for future downloads?
