Cather­ine Blyth’s timely book, On Time: Find­ing Your Pace in a World Ad­dicted to Fast

The Simple Things - - FRESH -

We have more time on our hands than ever – we live longer, can use more hours in the day than our an­ces­tors, and have any amount of time-sav­ing dig­i­tal de­vices. So, in the­ory, we have plenty of time to get done all the things that need do­ing, be­fore kick­ing back and watch­ing the sun­set. In prac­tice, we’re stressed-out clock-watch­ers, strug­gling to keep up with the pace of mod­ern life, scur­ry­ing to get any­thing done at all. Cather­ine Blyth’s timely, wise and witty book de­scribes how we have be­come trapped by time; she shows how tech­nol­ogy, bright colours and fast food af­fect our moods, and ex­plains how to slow down, switch off, work out which hours are best to do what in, and make time happy again.
