內容簡介

哲學家畢達哥拉斯說:「時間是宇宙的主宰」。有限的24小時,如何兼顧生活、工作與閒暇?放假,是要盡情放鬆度假?還是寓工作於娛樂?作者極富實踐效果的發現與分析,提供嶄新的視角,讓生活重新找到平衡與動力。

本書作者,以自己做為職業婦女的生活經驗,大量工作與家庭生活,產生相當大的衝突,意識到自己在平庸忙碌中越陷越深,不堪負荷,當她撰寫本書到歐洲進行文化調查,發現更年輕的夫妻,反而在家務的分工、孩子的教養、工作的調度,有一番新的適應,這個發現,讓她更深入研究,並重新檢視美國社會在工作上過度投注的意義;在不堪負荷下,如何創造一個好生活,才是有意義的,而當你創造了好生活,很奇妙的,那些曾經困擾你,讓你時間不夠用的事務,全都迎刃而解了。

In her attempts to juggle work and family life, Brigid Schulte has baked cakes until 2 a.m., frantically (but surreptitiously) sent important emails during school trips and then worked long into the night after her children were in bed. Realising she had become someone who constantly burst in late, trailing shoes and schoolbooks and biscuit crumbs, she began to question, like so many of us, whether it is possible to be anything you want to be, have a family and still have time to breathe. 

So when Schulte met an eminent sociologist who studies time and he told her she enjoyed thirty hours of leisure each week, she thought her head was going to pop off.

What followed was a trip down the rabbit hole of busy-ness, a journey to discover why so many of us ?nd it near-impossible to press the 'pause' button on life and what got us here in the ?rst place.

Overwhelmed maps the individual, historical, biological and societal stresses that have ripped working mothers' and fathers' leisure to shreds, and asks how it might be possible for us to put the pieces back together. 

Seeking insights, answers and inspiration, Schulte explores everything from the wiring of the brain and why workplaces are becoming increasingly demanding, to worldwide differences in family policy, how cultural norms shape our experiences at work, our unequal division of labour at home and why it's so hard for everyone – but women especially – to feel they deserve an elusive moment of peace.
