Book Summary:

Time is the ultimate scarce resource and thus quintessentially a topic for economics, which studies scarcity. Starting with the observation that time is increasingly valuable given competing demands as we have more things we can buy and do, Spending Time provides engaging insights into how people use their time and what determines their decisions about spending their time. That our time is limited by the number of hours in a day, days in a year, and years in our lives means that we face constraints and thus choices that involve trade-offs. We sleep, eat, have fun, watch TV, and not least we work. How much we dedicate to each, and why we do so, is intriguing and no one is better placed to shed light on similarities and differences than Daniel S. Hamermesh, the leading authority on time-use. Here he explores how people use their time, including across countries, regions, cultures, class, and gender. Americans now work more than people in other rich countries, but as recently as the late 1970s they worked no more than others; and they also work longer into older age. Men and women do different things at different times of the day, which affects how well-off they feel. Both the arrival of children and retirement create major shocks to existing time uses, with differences between the sexes. Higher incomes and higher wage rates lead people to hurry more, both on and off the job, and higher wage rates lead people to cut back on activities that take time away from work. Being stressed for time is central to modern life, and Hamermesh shows who is rushed, and why. With Americans working more than people in France, Germany, the U.K., Japan and other rich countries, the book offers a simple but radical proposal for changing Americans' lives and reducing the stress about time.

Book Summary:

Do you have a desire to spend time with God, a desire to glean golden nuggets from His truth? Perhaps you long to draw closer to your maker, but you are having trouble learning how to trust God through the various circumstances that have occurred in your life. "Spending Time with God" will help you view all of life's situations as being beneficial to your spiritual growth and personal relationship with your heavenly Father. Christ showed the importance of having intimacy with God the Father, as He would oftentimes steal away to a secluded area to be alone with Him. In a world that tries to keep us busy, we too must place a priority on intimacy with our Father, for at the Lord's feet we receive power, guidance, and knowledge to seek His face. "Spending Time with God" is a Christian devotional that equips you with wisdom, encouragement, and strength to remain faithful to God and give thanks to Him in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18). As you dedicate yourself to spending time with your Father, get ready to discover how He has destined you for greatness.

Mountains have forever been steeped in poetry, symbolism and mystery, inspiring everyone from the explorers who wish to scale every peak to those who wish to walk in the valleys, ski the slopes or take in the crisp air and feel renewed once more. These rooftops of the world encourage us to see the bigger picture, appreciate the world around us and the sensations in our own bodies. The mountains offer clarity and a sense of 'getting away from it all' - they call to our wild side and are in many physical and mental ways good for us. The benefits of spending time at altitude include: Weight loss Improved heart health Reduced stress Improved the quality of sleep Improved immune function Encouraged physical fitness and activity Improved mental agility and creativity Improved mood Improved self-esteem, self-awareness and sense of wellbeing As the world's population becomes increasingly urbanised, the need for a healthy relationship with nature is more important than ever, both from a psychological wellbeing and physical health point of view. In the Mountains is an awe-inspiring book that takes us on a journey to reveal the health and wellbeing benefits of spending time at altitude and also teaches how we can be inspired by the research to bring elements of a mountain lifestyle into our everyday lives, from spending more time outdoors, walking on uneven ground whenever possible and enjoying the medicinal benefits of mountain herbs.
