Speeded up, fragmented, impersonal, and exhausting - that's life in a plugged-in, always-on-the-go world. Many people want to step back and take a break from the chaos, but training a frazzled mind to embrace calm isn't easy. For more than 40 years, Eknath Easwaran dedicated himself to teaching the skills of a gentler, more human way of living. Take Your Time offers his proven techniques for improving health, relationships, and productivity in the midst of a busy lifestyle. Drawing on his strengths as a meditation teacher, he combines timeless stories with step-by-step teachings to help readers slow down, stay calm, and get a sense of life's true purpose. He shows readers that the key to a more peaceful life isn't necessarily changing how they work or what they do, but how they think. With humor and wisdom, he invites readers to step back from the hurry around them and find new paths to joy and serenity.
