There are more than 60 million worn-out women in the U.S. today. If you’re among them, this book will be like a retreat for your soul.

Story Behind the Book
We have written this book because it will provide the worn out women of today’s society with practical solutions to those who want to drop out because they are stressed out. Although some of you will look for quick checklists… wanting to jump to the “just let me unclutter my life” sections… we know the value of uncluttering you heart first. For that reason, we’ve included chapters for all areas of your life—emotional, mental, social, physical and spiritual. Most other books focus on learning to say no, simplifying your lifestyle, organization, and nurturing your spirit. Our book is unique because it includes all of these but also covers solutions for the root causes of why women do too much.

In the same way, you might do well to do a quick check on your level of weariness-to take the "temperature" of your life to see just how worn out you are. In this fast-paced, hectic, squeeze-as-much-as-you-can-into-your-day world, you might be more exhausted than you think. Each of us has our limits and our breaking points. Get too close to them, and you put yourself at risk for any number of problems.
