One of my dearest friends is a rock star business owner and entrepreneur, and like most of us, she works hard for the money. Long hours at the office, networking meetings, and more.

The pace of modern life is hot and rapid. Americans are breathless. Our society is woefully overworked, stressed out, and sick-and-tired of being sick-and-tired.

My friend and I have been discussing how we can have more joy and ease in our lives despite how busy we are, because let’s face it, you have to work, probably drive your kids around, find something to eat, and sleep a little. So the answer isn’t necessarily to do less, although for some of us that may be the ideal prescription.

I took this question to Spirit and received a deep insight about the nature of stress in our modern, ultra connected society, why we don’t have more balance and joy in our lives and how we can.

Join me for Day 11 of our 21 Days of Prayer, Meditation, and Wisdom. And, please leave a comment. I love to hear to from you.
