Publisher's Summary

Every woman has had this experience: you get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you. And if you go days, weeks, or even months in this cycle, you begin to feel like you have lost a bit of yourself.
While life is busy with a litany of must-dos - work, child-rearing, keeping house, grocery shopping, laundry and on and on - women do not have to push their own needs aside. Yet this is often what happens. There's just no time, right? Wrong.
In this practical and liberating audiobook, Jessica Turner empowers women to take back pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. Turner uses her own experiences and those of women across the country to teach listeners how to balance their many responsibilities while still taking time to invest in themselves. She also addresses barriers to this lifestyle, such as comparison and guilt, and demonstrates how eliminating these feelings and making changes to one's schedule will make the listener a better wife, mother, and friend.
Perfect for any woman who is doing everything for everyone - except herself - The Fringe Hours is ideal for both individuals and small group use.

Love this book so much I need a hard copy now!

This book was about so much more than the title eluded to (guilt, comparison, thankfulness, community) and I loved the way the author (Jessica Turner) curated so many quotes, survey responded answers and facts from studies to create this book. I also loved how she gave so many specific examples from her life and lives of many women she knows. It helps me to understand how to apply her insights all the more. I wish every woman in the world would read this book. It's phenomenal! I finally feel like I have the right to take care of myself and not feel guilty.

A wonderful book for busy moms and women

This book was wonderful, even if you already know that you should be taking time for yourself, I know so many moms ( myself included) who don't. There is a huge factor of "mommy guilt" that goes into our choices. I loved all her real, practical, and useable advice about how to fit in more time for yourself. Something's I do, like reading when I'm waiting, but other things I really hadn't thought of. I can't wait to try out some of her ideas so that my friends and I can have more time to pursue our passions and less stress in our lives.
