Take Back Your Time: The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It's not about doing more.
It's about doing what matters.
As a busy mom with three young kids and a career, number one national best-selling author Christy Wright knows what it’s like to try to do it all and be stretched too thin. After years of running on empty, she realized she had to do something different. It wasn’t just a matter of saying no to a few things. She had to figure out why she felt overwhelmed, overcommitted, and out of balance.
Here’s what she discovered: Life balance isn't something you do. It's something you feel. The great news is you can feel balanced - even in your busy life.
In Take Back Your Time, Christy redefines what balance is and reveals the clear path to actually achieve it. You'll learn how to:
- Identify what balance looks like in your unique situation and season.
- Find confidence in the choices that are right for you.
- Feel peace even during chaotic times.
- Learn how to be present for your life and actually enjoy it!
You weren’t created to live busy and burnt out, unhappy and unfulfilled. You shouldn’t be haunted by some elusive idea of balancing it all. There’s more for you right now. Today. And it starts with taking back your time the guilt-free way.

"Finding balance can be tricky because it isn't just a schedule problem; it's also a heart problem."
"If we aren't careful, we'll keep running around like crazy, doing things that create a life we don't want to lead and that make us into people we don't want to be."
"If you don't begin with the end in mind, you will end up crossing someone else's finish line. And worse, you'll work really hard for a life you don't actually want."
Grab your girlfriends together for a fall book study and set your priorities straight. Don’t let anyone else set them for you. Take back your time.
Thank you Christy! This is life changing!!

1- My calendar isn’t really filled with things I don’t want to do or don’t enjoy (this was a nice surprise).
2- I definitely need to work on figuring out my priorities and focusing more on the priority that Read more about review stating Loved it!!I do choose to do so that I can complete it before moving on to something new. This has been a challenge for me for quite some time. I always thought it was a lack of motivation or feeling just overwhelmed with all that needed to be done but I now realize it’s a lack of focus that is working against me. My new goal is to focus on my priorities and finally get things completed.
3- Being present in my current season. This is something that I really want to work on. My oldest is a freshman in high school this year and my youngest in 6th grade. My time with them is limited and I want to make the most of the time we have.
Thanks for an awesome read!! Christy really hits all the major points. There were so many AH HA!! moments and even some moments when I actually learned I was on the right path. The book is well written, easy to read and understand & the activities are helpful. I have already begun recommending it to my friends!! ❤️
Who it may interest: Anyone who feels overwhelmed with their schedule and needs clarity on what matters most.
Helpfulness: I was a bit hesitant to spend my time reading this book since I have read other books on managing time and setting boundaries, but I definitely found nuggets inside that helped me take a few more small steps forward in being more confident with my priorities. She doesn’t merely tell you how to organize your schedule she dives into heart things too. It’s a mix of both the practical and the intangible. She helps us look at who we want to be and challenges us with: are the things we are doing feeding into the person we want to be or not. There is also a free printable workbook that goes along with it that helps implement what she teaches. I loved the questions she suggests to ask yourself when making decisions, I will for sure reference that again!
Ease of reading: Easy, she is a great writer.
Main takeaway: It’s not about doing everything you want or think you should do, it’s about doing the right things at the right time. As seasons change life changes. I don’t like change, I tend to collect everything, never shedding anything. I need to let go of things that don’t fit into the season I’m in instead of trying to do it all.
Extra thoughts: If you are looking for a book on managing your time I would definitely recommend this book, I resonated with it way more than the book essentialism so many people recommend.
This book was a good read and I gleaned good things from it, I’d give it 5/5.
