THE HARD BREAK: The Case for a 24/6 Lifestyle
THE HARD BREAK: The Case for the 24/6 Lifestyle by Aaron Edelheit, available May 29th, published by Ideapress.
Productivity has become an international obsession. We celebrate a work culture where people boast of long working hours, their extreme schedules and how little they sleep. A constant stream of emails, texts, tweets, and more keeps us connected every minute and we rarely put our phones down.
And yet, most of us feel something is wrong. All of these attempts at optimizing business and life isn’t really making us happier. Ironically, it might not be making us all that productive either. In this groundbreaking book, noted entrepreneur and money manager Aaron Edleheit breaks down the myths around productivity and offers a startlingly simple solution: the Sabbath.
Through his personal journey of discovering the joy of taking a “hard break” one day a week to reset, Edleheit profiles not only his own life transformation, but hot this same practice has been changing the lives of well known entrepreneurs, celebrities and politicians alike.
For anyone who has struggled to find a good balance between life and work, this book offers an essential roadmap to make the right choices, attain more success, put life back into perspective and gain more happiness by taking a hard break for yourself.
Edelheit explains, “Taking a hard break has changed my life in profound ways. With THE HARD BREAK, I want to offer a different perspective and concrete guidelines that can make people more productive at work, bring them greater happiness, save their marriages, and improve the overall quality of their lives. The benefits of a Sabbath can be shared by everyone, regardless of their religion, and this book is my best attempt to spread the value of unplugging and observing a time of rest each week. Your business and your family will thank you for it.”
