How would you like to change your entire life? By doing absolutely nothing? This book is the ultimate self-help guide for lazy-busy people. Those who regularly follow the do-nothing relaxation exercises found in the book will experience a surge of energy, power, clarity, and speed! They will also be the beneficiaries of the most sought-after exercise result: wait loss! Wait loss in getting the career you want! Wait loss in getting the love you want! Wait loss in getting whatever the heck you want! HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE instructs readers to do nothing in a mindful way. For instance, they can do nothing while drinking their coffee (don't talk or think about problems) or do nothing when they should be doing their laundry (concentrate on the clean smell of the clothes). Readers of this book will discover a cheery, paradoxical life principle: sometimes the shortest distance between two points can be travelled by doing nothing at all.
