How to Not Always be Working by Marlee Grace

This guide book is filled with practical advice to help you curb your obsessions and build boundaries between your work, your job, and your life.

In their workshops on healing and creative process, Marlee Grace helps people acknowledge their blocks and address them by setting distinct parameters that change their behavior. Now, they bring their methods and ideas to the wider world, offering all of us concrete ways to break free from our devices and focus on what’s really important–our own aliveness.

Part workbook, part advice manual, part love letter, How to Not Always Be Workingventures into the space where phone meets life, helping readers to define their work–what they do out of sense of purpose; their job–what they do to make money; and their breaks–what they do to recharge, and to feel connected to themselves and the people who matter to them. Grace addresses complex issues such as what to do if your work and your job are connected, provides insights to help you figure out how much is too much, and offers suggestions for making the best use of your time.

Essential for everyone who feels overwhelmed and anxious about our hyper-connected world–whether you’re a corporate lawyer, a student, a sales person, or a yoga instructor–How to Not Always Be Working includes practical suggestions and thoughtful musings that prompt you to honestly examine your behavior–how you burn yourself out and why you’re doing it. A creative manifesto for living better, it shows you how to carve sacred space in your life.

From business anecdotes about fulfilling orders to more personal stories about Grace’s recovery from divorce and addiction, this book is full of radical wisdom and resilience, with plenty of discussion about ritual and routine as ways to create effective and positive creative life change.


Getting to the Center by Marlee Grace

From the beloved creator, workshop facilitator, and author of How to Not Always Be Working comes an approachable and practical guide to leaning into the unknown even when it feels as though everything around—and insideus is in flux.

Picking up where How to Not Always Be Working left off, Getting to Center is an empathetic offering to those who are looking for a roadmap for finding their way back to equilibrium. This book meditates on endings, grief and joy, ease, hope, addiction, and beginnings, pairing Marlee’s own experiences and radical wisdom with practical exercises and tools for creating balance and understanding within the natural changes of life. 

In their own constant shifting, improviser and entrepreneur Marlee Grace has found ways to pivot within their career, while still maintaining constant threads throughout. They have developed practices that have supported them through opening and closing multiple businesses, a divorce, several cross-country moves, choosing sobriety, and more.

Essential for anyone who feels overwhelmed and anxious about these unpredictable times, this gorgeous, thoughtful book is a hand to hold to feel less alone, and a guide to cultivating resources we can replenish and depend on in ourselves.
