Pause: Putting the Brakes on a Runaway Life puts the hurried life on notice.

Pause challenges the chaos that churns in our society with gentle suggestions to inject moments of fun, adventure, and self-care. Pause will convince you that life dramatically improves when we replace meaningless activities, back-to-back commitments, and unfulfilling obligations with activities that give life zest.

Through sparkling anecdotes and solid research, Katherine Gibson calms our physical, emotional, and spiritual angst with practical and inspirational down-home wisdom. You will find:

* Tips and tales to shape up your soul
* Essential pauses to balance life
* Playful pauses to keep life sweet
* Quick pauses that will change your life
* Small indulgences that reap huge rewards
* Keys to create the perfect place to pause
* ... and much, much more.

Praise for Pause:

"Pause tenderly shows how absolutely essential it is to savor life. Stay in your pajamas, brew a pot of tea, snuggle up in a comfy chair, and spend a day reading this book. Its gentle wisdom will change your life." — Virginia Brucker, author of Gifts from the Heart

"Gibson's writing is lyrical, grounded, luscious, real, and accessible. We know why we should downshift into more graceful, balanced lives. Pause tells us how in simple steps to create lasting change one day at a time." — Linda Kavelin Popov, author of A Pace of Grace
