Need a weekend away? The Working Girl’s Guiltless Guide To Planning The Perfect Weekend Collapse Workbook by Elizabeth S. Barry will help you prepare for the weekend.
When I plan a weekend getaway or a vacation, I plan what and where I’ll go. I make sure all work is caught up and the house is spotless. Everything must be in its place. I sacrifice sleep, exercise and everything else to prepare to relax. There seems to be something wrong with this picture! I’m stressing myself out so that I can relax.
Barry offers readers a workbook on how to properly plan for a weekend collapse. Why a weekend collapse? There comes a time when we Superwomen have to recharge our battery. We need to relax, sleep, and regroup. A major part of this process is SLEEP! It must be a top priority. Get some rest. Without adequate sleep we cannot think clearly. Our reaction time is down, we age faster.
When I began reading this book I was thinking of a weekend away to relax. Barry focuses on a weekend at home. She stresses being organized. An organized person has much less stress. She provides plenty of space to take notes. If you are still tired at the end of your weekend collapse have another one the next weekend. Barry writes in an easy to read humorous manner.
I like this book. If I am home I rarely take time to relax. I spend long hours working. Barry's suggestions are fitting. Turn off the phone, do what will make you feel better. Perhaps it is organizing a drawer or washing a car or ironing. Yes ironing. I get a great sense of satisfaction from ironing. Barry helps you find the formula that works for you.
This little workbook would make a great gift for your Superwoman. I can see it now. A basket filled with lavender scents, a cooling gel mask, bath salts, a couple of favorite magazines and a copy of this workbook would make a terrific gift idea.
