How to Not Always Be Working by Marlee Grace

I got this lovely little book for Christmas from a colleague and read it over break. How to Not Always Be Working: a toolkit for creativity and radical self-care by marlee grace is a gentle but profound book on the connections between, work, creativity, and caring for ourselves in this wild and fast-paced world we live in. The book is full of exercises to get you thinking, poems, stories, and anecdotes that help carry the writer’s overall message. I found grace’s voice to be patient, self-aware, and conversational. As someone who has read and thought a lot about these themes, she held my interest and brought me new insights. I’m grateful for this little book and glad to have read it as we enter a new year. I recommend it to everyone interested in these themes.
