"A field guide with 100 exercises for calmness and clarity you can do in less than two minutes all day long. Kate’s message is important: we can choose calm any time we want. But for bedtime, sleep, and particularly if we have children, wind-down time … comes in before pajama, toothbrush, and tuck-in time."
