In this enlightening book, Rachael O'Meara guides you through the steps of your own pause journey: - The signs that you're in need of a meaningful break - Planning your optimal pause--whether it's as short as a day or as long as an epic journey - Reentering the world with renewed clarity and purpose. Incorporating the latest findings from psychology and neuroscience and peppered with inspiring stories of successful pauses, this book will show you that the fastest way to happiness is to slow down.

In this book "pausing" falls under the broader category of mindfulness. The author took a leave of absence from Google in order to sort out the next steps after receiving critical job reviews. Although few of us have the opportunity or money to take a 3 month sabbatical, her everyday applications are sound and practical. There is a lot of territory covered under such a simple subject. But simplicity is often the most difficult to achieve. In this case, there is self- introspection and emotional monitoring to guide our paths forward. If you believe in intuition and divine guidance then this book validates both.
