How to Not Always Be Working started out as a class Marlee Grace taught as part of her workshops on healing, making, and addiction recovery, a small leaflet of inspiration she banged out on her typewriter in one sitting. It turned out, though, that she had tapped into something ubiquitous-a need on a societal level for us to figure out how to navigate the ever-murky space we occupy with social media and our constant access to the world and to each other. Part workbook, part advice manual, part love letter, How to Not Always Be Working gently ventures into the liminal space of where phone meets life, helping readers to define their work (aka what they do out of sense of purpose), their job (aka what they do to make money), and their breaks (what they do to recharge, to keep sacred, to feel connected to themselves). The book delves into the discussion of what happens when your work and your job are connected or the same, and how to figure out how much is too much, and get the best use of your time. This book is perfect for everyone from a corporate lawyer who is always on email to a yoga instructor trying to do something that's just for themselves, and includes practical suggestions such as getting a phone box and sleeping with your phone in a different room, and more philosophical prompts that invite readers to ask how they burn themselves out and what they're doing it for. A creative manifesto, this book reaches out to people of all creeds, genders, ethnicities, and sexualities-and includes contributions from all of the above- insisting that deep breathing and yoga aren't just for the 1%, and inviting everyone to create a sacred space in their life.
