Summary, etc.:
"We live in soul-scorching times. The mad pace of life, the number of demands on our time and energy, and the overwhelming torrent of information coming at us 24-7 have left us ragged, wrung-out, and emptied. By practicing a few wonderfully simple practices--or what John Eldredge calls "graces"--you can begin to recover your soul, disentangle from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty. After reading this book you will learn how to insert the One Minute Pause into your day, begin practicing "benevolent detachment" and truly let it all go, offer kindness toward yourself in the choices you make, drink in the simple beauty available to you every day, take realistic steps to unplug from technology overload. These simple practices and others are ready for the taking. You don't need to abandon your life to get it back. Begin restoring your life here and now. Your soul will thank you for it"-- Book jacket.
