In The Age of Overwhelm, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky tells the truth about how today’s culture of overdrive, distraction, rapid response, and scarcity affects our lives, connections with one another, and our physical and emotional well-being. Lipsky also provides tools, skills, and ideas to shift our intentions and actions. This book shows us how to not just cope and survive, but how we can thrive by creating the conditions for more contented lives.
