How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World: A Modern Book of Hours to Soothe the Soul

( 1 )

Overview

     Has it just been one of those days? Or months? Or years? I was once in a yoga class (a rare yoga class, I’ll admit), where the teacher had us all exhale again and again and again, until—as she put it—we’d let go of today, the last month and, by the end, “the whole of last year.” We all collapsed in very non-yogic giggling. But we knew what she meant. Exhale. Let it all go.

Overview

     Has it just been one of those days? Or months? Or years? I was once in a yoga class (a rare yoga class, I’ll admit), where the teacher had us all exhale again and again and again, until—as she put it—we’d let go of today, the last month and, by the end, “the whole of last year.” We all collapsed in very non-yogic giggling. But we knew what she meant. Exhale. Let it all go.
     To exhale, I stop “doing Life” and start to wind down and engage in soothing rituals like lighting a candle.
     And then I take to my bed.
     Perhaps you need to do the same? . . .
     Gather up your pillows and a box of Kleenex, a novel and some tea . . . sink back against those soft pillows and dream. It’s time to rest, rejuvenate, and appreciate just how glorious life really is.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 “Who but Sophia Stuart, creator of the delightful teamgloria.com, could make ‘taking to one’s bed’ seem like a victory instead of defeat? In her lovely book of hours, she weaves together wisdom and witticisms, slowly convincing you that you have been chasing all the wrong things in this mad, mad world. Fortunately, she instantly provides the antidote: cashmere blankets, a pot of tea, and a gentle, encouraging nudge that tells you to open your eyes and see the world anew. A necessary book. And an irresistible one, too.”
—Stacy Morrison, author of Falling Apart in One Piece and former editor in chief of Redbook magazine
