Blogoversary Giveaway #24



Thanks to Tyndale House Publishers, I have a good handful of books to offer to giveaway straight from my mailbox to yours. Giveaway #24 is Your Life in Rhythm by Bruce Miller. I have not read this one, but it sounds like a good one to apply to life. On the day I have time to read non-fiction, I would add this one to my queue.

Your Life in Rhythm

Your Life in Rhythm offers a realistic solution to our crazy, overly-busy, stressed lives. Miller exposes the myth of living a “balanced” life, and offers “rhythmic living” as a new paradigm for relieving guilt and stress, while accomplishing more of what matters most in life. Rhythmic living details six practical strategies for living a more fulfilling life.

Instead of managing time, Miller suggests that we flow with life, living in tune with the natural rhythms of nature. By applying the rhythm strategies, we can reduce stress, frustration, and guilt while increasing fulfillment and inner peace. The point is not to balance all of our responsibilities at one time, but to focus attention on what matters most at different times. Although this sounds easy enough, the six strategies he outlines are crucial to helping the reader to achieve this goal.

Miller helps us to understand the stages and seasons of life we all experience over a lifetime. This new understanding, when applied, will solve time-management problems and help readers to let go of misplaced priorities and relieve their overbooked lifestyle. The rhythm solution, in short, brings freedom.

In a nutshell:
  • Helps readers think through their overbooked lifestyle.
  • Presents a new way of thinking about life management.
  • Helps readers to let go of misplaced priorities.
  • Helps readers understand the seasons of life and adjust their expectations.
  • Presents rhythm “solution process” for common time management issues.

Making a list of things that need done and then crossing them off as I go I see progress and want to keep going. Good management if you ask me.

I like to use a good old-fashioned to do list. I feel like if I'm more aware of everything I need to do, I am less likely to waste time and can plan out my day better.

I've had to learn to pace myself so I don't overdo. I try to plan diff things each day so I don't get stressed out. Yes, things do come up, but then I try to eliminate something that isn't totally necessary for that day.

My best time saving strategy is to make a to do list that involves no backtracking.

I've tried to make the switch to electronic calendars, and I keep coming back to my paper calendar. It's small enough that I can carry without it getting bulky.

My best strategy is to make lists of what is most important and then less important and then least important. That helps me stay sane! alicedemskehansen at gmail.com
