We work feverishly to make ourselves happy. So why are we so miserable? In this book, journalist Celeste Headlee illuminates a new path ahead, a global shift in our thinking so we can stop sabotaging our well-being, put work aside and start living instead of doing. We're searching for external solutions to an internal problem. We won't find what we're searching for in punishing diets, productivity apps or the latest self-improvement schemes. We just need to learn how to take time for ourselves and redefine what is truly worthwhile. Pulling together threads from history, neuroscience, social science and even paleontology, Headlee examines long-held assumptions about time use, idleness, hard work and how we achieve our ultimate goals.
