Mindful : August 2014
18 mindful August 2014 OVERWHELMED Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time By Brigid Schulte • FSG Books Ever yone is supposed to have 30 hours of leisure time available each week, says sociologist Jack Robinson. Brigid Schulte, Washington Post repor ter and mother of two, offers plenty of evidence of how diffi- cult that time can be to find. Schulte delves into the reasons for society’s chronic lack of leisure time, and tells stories of people on the edge of burnout. Her engaging style and personal anecdotes shed light on the prevalence of exhaustion, and the efforts being made to curb the fallout that so often ensues when we forget how to slow down. MY AGE OF ANXIETY Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind By Scott Stossel • Alfred A. Knopf Scott Stossel, editor of The Atlantic mag- azine, has struggled with anxiety since he was a toddler. In an account that manages to be both objective and ver y personal, Stossel tells of times that should have been joyful rendered white-knuckle terrif ying— such as his wedding and the bir th of his child. He exposes the realities of a medical condition with debilitating symptoms that is often dismissed as “just ner ves,” weaving in the histor y and treatment of the disorder with his own search for relief. ● ZOOBURBIA Meditations on the Wild Animals Among Us By Tai Moses • Parallax Press As we human beings extend our habitat into the wild, the wild takes up residence in our backyards. Something inside Tai Moses burns a little brighter when animals are around, and that’s not at all a bad thing. Through her own example she encourages us to eschew grassy lawns for native plants and critter-friendly spaces, to confront our fear of hairy arachnids, and to not hesitate when an injured animal needs our help. But, mostly, she shows how when we pay more at tention to the furr y and feathered beasts around us, we’re better off.
