A practical and spiritual guide for working moms to learn how to have more by doing less.
This is a book for working women and mothers who are ready to release the culturally inherited belief that their worth is equal to their productivity, and instead create a personal and professional life that’s based on presence, meaning, and joy. As opposed to focusing on “fitting it all in,” time management, and leaning in, as so many books geared at ambitious women do, this book embraces the notion that through doing less women can have–and be–more.
The addiction to busyness and the obsession with always trying to do more leads women, especially working mothers, to feel like they’re always failing their families, their careers, their spouses, and themselves. This book will give women the permission and tools to change the way they approach their lives and allow them to embrace living in tune with the cyclical nature of the feminine, cutting out the extraneous busyness from their lives so they have more satisfaction and joy, and letting themselves be more often instead of doing all the time.
Do Less offers the reader a series of 14 experiments to try to see what would happen if she did less in one specific way. So, rather than approaching doing less as an entire life overhaul (which is overwhelming in and of itself), this book gives the reader bite-sized steps to try incorporating over 2 weeks!

From the Publisher
In our culture, the way we work isn’t working. Our addiction to busyness and obsession with always trying to do more leads up to feel like we’re always failing our families, our careers, our spouses, and ourselves.
We need to revolutionize the way we work. It’s not acceptable to work ourselves to the bring of exhaustion, to constantly be “on-call” and checking our work e-mail around the clock.
How do we fix the system? The answer isn’t some corporate policy. And it isn’t “leaning in.” It’s a system within ourselves, in our daily work lives, and in our homes.
Instead of “leaning in,” and “doing it all,” entrepreneur and best-selling author Kate Northrup invites you to experiment with doing less. By doing less, paradoxically, you can have – and be – more.
In this book, you’ll get the permission and tools to change the way you approach your life, and embrace living in tune with the cyclical nature of the feminine. By cutting out the extraneous busyness, you’ll have more satisfaction and joy, and you’ll let yourself be more often instead of doing all the time.
