Summary of A Life in Balance
Nourishing the Four Roots of True Happiness
Meditation, exercise, love and nourishment are four essential elements of a happy life.
Author Kathleen A. Hall explains how to develop strength, mental and physical flexibility, focus and happiness by nourishing what she calls the "roots of self." She offers a well-reasoned, well-researched approach to creating a harmonious work-life balance. Drawing from a broad range of disciplines, she makes the findings of mind-body medicine easy to understand, and shows that small, incremental changes easily within your grasp may add up to significant life changes. Though her style can be a tad repetitive, getAbstract recommends this book to stressed-out, overwhelmed workers and managers as a reliable, one-volume compendium of diverse health and happiness advice.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the four roots of happiness are
- How you can nourish them
- How developing even a little awareness of your habits can help you strike a better work-life balance
