What happened to the pace of life? Whether you are juggling work and family life, or staying home full time, life today can feel like a race. Comfortable Chaos is the first book that accepts the pace of modern living and helps readers come to their own life balance. This book recognizes that life today will never be free of stress and that everyone has his or her own level of tolerance for chaos. The book begins with a simple self-assessment test that readers can take to learn their “coefficient for chaos.” This score, along with stories and examples, can be used to make effective and guilt-free choices in everything from work schedules to house cleaning standards. Readers then get a real-life picture of the various work schedules and stay-at-home options, allowing them to make decisions that are right for them. If they decide to make changes, there are specific tools and checklists included to help ease the transition. Balance is important, and this book can help provide that for anyone struggling with stress. With this book, you can learn how to handle everything you have going on and still allow a little chaos.
