Arylo (Choosing ME Before WE: Every Woman’s Guide to Life and Love) aims her book at women who are trying to do it all, experiencing stress and burnout, and coming up short with the results and accolades they had hoped for. Arylo addresses the seven root causes of feeling overwhelmed, and emboldens readers to liberate their success, life force, heart, time, and power, offering tips under each category. Among her instructions for releasing a particular behavior and embracing another, the author advises staying focused on one’s own part rather than taking on more than one’s share. Sidebar self-assessments reflect on harmonizing practices and knowing oneself, offering insights into signals of burnout, and solutions for reversing course. Arylo provides mantras and self-talk phrases to help readers concentrate on self-care and put energy into high-priority goals.
VERDICT Helpful for women willing to do some soul-searching to shift course and focus on what really matters to them..
