New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge provides a practical, deceptively simple blueprint for utterly retaking control of your life.
We live in soul-scorching times. The 24-7 onslaught of contemporary life--with its never-ending feed of global tragedies and shrieking demands for our attention, to say nothing of the ordinary pressures of work, family, friends, and community--has left us ragged, wrung-out, and emptied. But if we already have no margin in our lives, how do we find room to change things?
In his life-changing new book, John Eldredge distills a lifetime's wisdom about healing into a series of practical, ready-to-implement practices for putting yourself back together. These simple steps will enable you to begin recovery, help you focus on what matters most, disengage from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty. The practices include
- the one-minute pause,
- benevolent detachment,
- practicing kindness,
- getting outside, and
- stepping back from technology.
The practices explained here are ready for the taking. You don't need abandon your life to get it back. You can restore it here and now. And you will never be the same.
