FROM THE BOOK JACKET:The chorus of shoulds is loud. You should enjoy the moment, dream big, have it all, get up before the sun, track your water consumption, go on date nights, and be the best.Or maybe you should ignore what people think, live on dry shampoo, be a negligent PTA mom, have a dirty house, and claim your hot mess like a badge of honor.

Its so easy to feel overwhelmed by the mixed messages of what it means to live well.

Kendra Adachi, the creator of the Lazy Genius movement, invites you to live well by your own definition and equips you to be a genius about what matters and lazy about what doesnt. Everything from your morning routine to napping without guilt falls into place with Kendras thirteen Lazy Genius principles, including:

" Decide once
" Start small
" Ask the Magic Question
" Go in the right order
" Schedule rest

Discover a better way to approach your relationships, work, and piles of mail. Be who you are without the complication of everyone elses shoulds. Do what matters, skip the rest, and be a person again.
