A guide to living in the here-and-now for those who have been watching life pass them by ? Here?s the problem: Most of the time, we don?t know Wednesday from Monday or what we ate for breakfast. We?re living on autopilot?working, driving, and moving through our surroundings obliviously. And yet, every now and then, we find crystal clarity?perhaps when listening to a piece of music, or holding a loved one close. For that fleeting moment, life is wonderful . . . so what can we do to wake up more often? ?In this easy-to-tote handbook, author Chris Bar?z-Brown challenges us to shake up our routines and tune in to what really counts, with 54 playful strategies. For example: ?Get lost at lunchtime: When walking in familiar places, autopilot takes over. Being lost heightens our awareness?opening the door to rich and surprising experiences.Make a plane and then free it: This one?s simple. Make a paper plane. If you?re having trouble letting go of something, write it on the plane. Then safely launch it from somewhere really high, and see how far it flies.Steal back time: If you have to, schedule a meeting that doesn?t exist. You can do anything with that time, as long as it fills your soul with joy.? Like a friend who knows you better than you know yourself, Bar?z-Brown offers advice with the satisfying ring of truth?pushing us to travel outward and inward to new places, and of course, to Wake Up! ?
