Rooted in science, research, and common sense, Ease is a powerful and thoughtful book to help us all manage our frenetic lives. Best of all, it reads like you’re in the room, one-on-one, with coaching pro Eileen Chadnick. And I can tell you from personal experience, that’s a wonderful place to be.”

Terry Fallis, award-winning author of The Best Laid Plans, and co-founder of Thornley Fallis Communications

Eileen has done us busy people an enormous service with Ease. It is quite one thing to know what the neuroscience and positive psychology research says about dealing with times of “crazy busy” but quite another to apply the strategies to our own lives.  Eileen bridges both and lays out a smorgasbord of solid ideas that are easy to grasp and to customize to one’s own needs.”
