Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington review

Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington

Have you ever felt like a fraud or failure as you struggle to find balance in life? Do you find yourself juggling everything in mediocrity and feeling like you’re succeeding at very little? In her no-nonsense way, Alli Worthington tackles the big questions about finding happiness and one’s God-given purpose.

Breaking Busy marries popular secular research with solid biblical principles, instilling confidence that you, too, can move from crazy busy to confident calm. With refreshing candor, uproarious true stories, and a Christian worldview, Alli delivers truths that dismantle common happiness myths. Then she empowers you to get unstuck, to let go of the good to make way for the great, to know yourself and your Creator, and ultimately to find peace and purpose in this world of crazy.

You will:

  • Learn how to stop chasing what leaves you empty and start doing what you were created to do.
  • Identify the common lies you believe and how to strip their power from your life.
  • Recognize how what you say no to determines what you can say yes to.

With relatable anecdotes, Alli models real-life guidance on boundaries, relationships, and self-care, humbly examining her own mistakes and walking through how she learned from her missteps and found peace in a world of busyness.

If you long to find real connection with both your loved ones and your Creator, Alli _225_350_Book.1835.coverWorthington deftly balances intelligent humility and heartwarming humor to help you rediscover your path.

My Review:

This is a book that is needed today more than ever. Alli shares truths about the importance of Breaking the cycle of busy in our lives. Many people today feel they must be constantly on the go to be productive or to get things done but it leaves them overwhelmed and stressed out.

Alli makes you look at what you are doing and deciding whether or not it has purpose and helps you to figure out if what you are so busy doing is something you are actually called to do. For several years the Lord has placed on me an importance for not overwhelming myself. I used to be a “yes” person. You ask for my help and I would gladly have done whatever it is you asked for. But it wore me down and stressed me out. I was finding that I was filling my time up with things that didn’t matter or was not something I was called to do.  I learned quickly that it was okay to say “no”.

This book is a great tool to help you Break Busy. I recommend that everyone, man or woman, should pick this book up and read it through. Maybe even more than once. Don’t just read it. Allow God to speak through this book and into your life. You really will not be disappointed.
