A 10% Happier meets How to Meditate in this groundbreaking book for anyone who can't slow down but wants the secret to being happier and more effective from spiritual entrepreneur, former magazine editor, and founder and CEO of the popular LA-based meditation studio Suze Yalof Schwartz. Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or busy stay-at-home mom, the secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, or unplug. As Anne Lamott said, "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." Contrary to what every Type A person thinks, studies show that you can actually be more effective by doing less, by unplugging from the chaos of your life for just minutes a day. This can be done effortlessly--even while waiting in line at Starbucks--through meditation. But Unplug is not the book for anyone who loves Buddhas and woo-woo talk. The first book that shows the overwhelmed and overworked Type A person how and why to unplug in order to recharge. Experts ranging from Dr. Oz to Harvard scientists to Vogue claim meditation can make us happier, healthier, more effective, and even smarter. And, Unplug is the only book that offers a no-nonsense approach that will appeal to anyone, even if--no, especially if--you believe you think too much, have no time, can't sit still, or that it's just not for you. In it, Suze debunks a lot of the misperceptions about meditation, including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods for it to work. She also shares the incredible benefits you'll experience, the proof and science to back up how meditation works, as well as tools and techniques to easily incorporate quick-hit meditations into daily life.
