How pressured do you feel in your day-to-day life? Do you often feel overwhelmed? On Thursday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m., Temple Sinai of Roslyn and their women’s group, Friend of a Friend/Chaverot, will be hosting a discussion of the book Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time, by Brigid Schulte.

An award-winning author for The Washington Post, Schulte has created a map of the stresses that have ripped our leisure time to shreds, and gives practical advice on how to put the pieces back together.

The book has already received positive advance reviews.

“Why is life so insanely busy? What happened to ‘leisure’ time? Tired of the modern hamster wheel, Brigid Schulte set out to find a better way to live. Her voice is delightful, her findings surprising and hopeful. Overwhelmed is a passionate, funny, very human book that reads like a detective story.” William Powers, author of Hamlet’s BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age.

Audrey Bernstein, LMSW, will facilitate the discussion. Bernstein is an insightful Partners In Caring social worker at the Sid Jacobson JCC. All are welcome. RSVP to foftemplesinai @gmail.com or call the Temple office at 516-621-6800.
