Stop stressing and learn to chill with this mindfulness and meditation guidebook that can help workaholics and others let go of anxiety and achieve and maintain the healthy work/life balance they need.
We all know good health and happiness depends on having proper balance between our professional and private lives. But in today’s hectic work environment, in which we must do more in less time with fewer resources, that goal can feel impossible to attain. We stay late at the office rather than being home with our families. We work into the night and on weekends to perfect that presentation or just catch up, rather than relaxing with a hobby or spending time with our friends. Under constant pressure to over-perform, work easily becomes the dominant force in our lives.
Licensed psychotherapist and professor Bryan Robinson understands the demands we face. He also knows that it’s difficult to stop the cycle of over-work. But there is a solution. In #Chill, Robinson explains how ending the cycle of work addiction can be achieved by reframing priorities and cultivating mindfulness in our daily lives. He provides a month-by-month guide with meditations that help center and soothe us, allowing us to step back, close our eyes, take a long breath, and focus on the moment.
Filled with wise advice, inspiring quotes, and gentle guidance, #Chill gives us the tools we need to quiet our anxiety, break our addiction to work, and bring compassion, calm, confidence, and creativity into our daily existence—and at last, have the peaceful, balanced life we all deserve.

With the New Year, New Me spirit I'm striving for a better work/life balance. This is a wonderful mindfulness-oriented book by someone who really knows what he's talking about! I feel like I can reach my goals with #CHILL. Can't wait to share with others!
#CHILL is a wonderful tool that helped keep me level headed during a very busy time in my life. Bryan Robinson offers some really awesome techniques to make your work AND personal life much more balanced for maximum effect and relaxation. I’ll be recommending this to all of my friends and coworkers!
This book is a lifesaver. The separation into months makes it a nice daily short read to start the day feeling mellow. Bryan Robinson is the voice of reason and relaxation, not to mention the physical book itself is has an amazing cover and it's the perfect size! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to escape and chill.
A fabulous tool for helping us over achievers relax and #CHILL. We can get so much done, but we don't need to do it all, and Dr. Robinson has helped me tremendously with his books (I've read 3 now) to learn to create better work/life balance habits and mindful practices! A must read for driven workaholic types.
#CHILL was exactly what I needed to start 2019. As a recent graduate in my first full time job, this book helped me approach work with a fresh perspective and gave me helpful tips to avoid feeling anxious or overwhelmed. This is a timeless book that I will definitely continue to consult throughout the new year and years to come!
