Advice for Millennials and Gen Zers

Social media influencer Grace Beverley offers advice on time management, productive mind-sets, setting goals and giving yourself a break.

In this Sunday Times #1 bestseller, social media influencer Grace Beverley (GraceFitUK) tells readers how she believed growing her career would catapult her into adulthood and give her fulfillment. But working long hours and weekends made her neither happy nor healthy. Beverley challenges conceptions of success and productivity dominant among gen Zers and millennials, and encourages readers to take a more humane and sustainable approach to their careers. She offers tips for avoiding burnout, finding balance, working smarter and designing the life of your dreams.

Cosmopolitan said Beverley offers a fresh take on how to create your own balance, be more productive and feel fulfilled in the high-pressure social media age.” Some readers, however, found Beverley’s style belabored and repetitive, and felt her text could use more editing. Others complained about Beverley preaching about work-life balance when her upbringing and education suggest the protection of considerable privilege.
