Manage Your Time to Reduce Your Stress:
A Handbook for the Overworked, Overscheduled, and Overwhelmed
(Walker & Co. 2008)


Your book Manage Your Time To Reduce Your Stress --- just like The Procrastinator's Handbook --- came to me during one of the roughest periods of my life when I needed it the most. And both times, your books saved me. Without your recent book, I don't think I would have been able to calm down and settle my thoughts amidst all the chaos of moving from San Francisco to Tokyo. Especially considering that I ended up with jury duty in the midst of it all! But I did have your book, and I was able to manage my time to reduce my stress, just like you said I could. Watch me Rita, I'm going to work your techniques and make you proud!
--- Raiman Au, Japan

A buoy for those drowning from too much to do, but not enough time in which to do it, Emmett (The Clutter-Busting Handbook) focuses on developing self-care and time management skills. Warning that people should don their own oxygen mask before assisting others, the author argues persuasively for taking responsibility for one’s own needs and happiness. A mantra of excellence over perfectionism drives many of the book’s lessons, and work sheets and the author’s fresh voice make this slender volume a quick and thoughtful read.

 —Publishers Weekly

“In her new book, Manage Your Time to Reduce Your Stress, author Rita Emmett names time as our biggest
tormentor and ‘busyness’ our great curse. ‘Time management doesn’t mean running around like a nut doing 20 things at once,’ she writes. ‘True time management means actually spending as much of your time as you can doing those things you want to do.’ She acknowledges that we need to make time for gainful employment but advocates giving equal priority to such things as family, good books, ice skating, and lazy Sundays.”

Manage Your Time to Reduce Your Stress by Rita Emmett, and change your life
St. Paul Books Examiner Julia Parent

This may be shocking, but people are not supposed to be stressed all the time. In this handbook, the author gives tips on how to stop feeling overworked, overscheduled, and overwhelmed. Stress is inevitable, but most of it is self-inflicted. Instead of dreading all the things we have to do in a day, we can enjoy every minute of it. One of the ways she suggests to do this, is to think about what you'd like your life to be like in ten years. Make a things "To-Do List" and a things "Not-To-Do List" to get there. Then, start taking baby steps. You may need to go out of your comfort zone by saying no, delegating work, setting boundaries, and giving yourself pats on the back. But, the commitment to yourself will be worth it. Once you start freeing up more time to do what you enjoy, you'll start feeling happier and healthier.

MANAGE YOUR TIME TO REDUCE YOUR STRESS: A Handbook For The Overworked, Overscheduled, and Overwhelmed
by Rita Emmett

This book has eight chapters of no-nonsense advice, strategies and goal setting. I like it because it is simple to read and practical to use.

Stress is in the mind of each one of us. It is not a single event or situation, but how we interpret the event or the situation. An event that is stress producing for you, may be enjoyable for me. It's all a matter of how you look at it.

Emmett includes the following three questions we should ask ourselves regularly, just to take our stress temperature:
1. Do I work long hours because I'm passionate about my work or because I am afraid not to?
2. Right now, is my work exhausting or exhilarating?
3. Do I have some source of joy in my life?

"Burnout often happens when your stress, work, or frustration is greater than the reward, success, or appreciation you receive." Emmett says.
This book is filled with ideas that work, that's why I like it. What do you think?
