How did I get so busy? By Valerie Burton

Gift Challenge: "My co-worker is a superstar. She has two kids under the age for 5, works full-time, makes home-cooked meals every night, does yoga 3 times a week, throws parties on the weekends, takes the kids to gymnastics and art classes, operates a pet charity part-time and basically runs non-stop. Lately she's been getting sick a lot and seems a little overwhelmed. What can I get her to help her out?"
 
Just because someone "has it all" doesn't always mean they are happy and content. Your co-worker will appreciate this book, a quick resource to help her slow down her schedule and focus on the absolute priorities without compromising her health. The 28 day plan has tips on: work-life balance, taming the to-do list and adding a sachet of fun to life every week. Available at Amazon.com.
 
Gift Set Tip!
Include a journal, a bag of skittles and a personal note to let her know that you are there for her if she needs anything.
