A Great Guide for Managing Your Life

As busy first-time parents with demanding careers, my wife worries about how good of a parent we are for our son. We felt like we were failing a little. I struggled to be “perfect” at everything, and it drove me crazy! What I discovered from going through the book was that I had really poor time management skills. I am so glad I found this book. Besides my time management, I found many good tips for delegating tasks to other family members, self-care and mental health. Matilda Reezes gives excellent tools and techniques for understanding and dealing with some of these issues. Overall, this book was a great buy and helped us enormously.

Logical, empowering advice!

This audiobook is a fantastic resource for any busy person! Moms especially, but I run 2 businesses and have a couple of puppers and I find the information just as relevant for me too. I have a lot of moms who are clients, and I will be using some of the things I have learned in this book with them, and recommending they get a copy for themselves as well. I am a huge champion of mindfulness, and this book does a great job teaching how to incorporate practices that will help the mind and body run more efficiently, which trickles into all areas of life. Very well written and narrated.

Well researched

This audiobook has a personal touch at the start that spoke nicely to me. I particularly admired the book's organization. The author effectively separates each segment and describes what it will address. It provides excellent advice and suggestions on how to better arrange your life. It is a must-have audiobook for any working mom who feels like she can't possibly do it all. This audiobook is jam-packed with convincing techniques for informations that actually work. The text is straightforward to follow by anyone. I would recommend it for moms as a resource.

work smarter not harder!

Im so glad to find this book as i have realized i did not manage my time well and always seemed to feel like there was never enough time in the day to do all the things i was supposed to. I usually went to bed stressed about things i couldnt get done. After listening to this book i feel confident i can simplify my life, manage my time, money and energy. Another awesome part of this book is routines and the explanation of their importance!

Life changing!

Stumbled across this book and thought It might be interesting, but I did not expect it would change my life! I’m a first time mum and simultaneously working from. I’ve found it so challenging to find a good routine, look after my family and work at the same time. After listening to this book and following the guidance I actually manage to fit in some „me“ time too!! Highly recommend, thank you to the author.

New Tips And Excellent Reminders

This book was full to the brim of great ideas for how to get more out of your days in terms of productivity and also joy. It gave me lots of new tips that I’m already putting to use and also served as a great reminder on things I already knew but wasn’t doing, like remembering to make time for myself. There are lots of well rounded points and how to make things work for lots of different lifestyles and mom stages. Great book, give it a listen.

Good book for busy mothers

It is no secret that we're getting busier today than ever before. It is definitely evident as more moms become occupied with many activities, and in several cases while working a full-time job. I find this book very useful as a good guide to keep a balance, take care of one's self, and be more productive.
