The simple actions of noticing and reflecting on how we are living, are the fundamental tools for taking back possession of our most precious asset: time.
Many useful tips to:
- Take your life back by establishing harmonious rhythms.

There is an unbreakable link between time and happiness
The author invites readers to walk this path with her, sharing her experience to open your eyes to the insidious nature of our problem with time. It is a problem that emerged as we went from living according to the cycles of nature to being carried away by the unsustainable rhythm imposed by the technological age.
Stress and despair are only symptoms, what should frighten us is the idea of living a life in which time is spent on things that seem important, and that only when we look back, do they show themselves for what they really are: hollow. Only by looking back we can understand that we have overlooked what was really important.
