My guest on today's "A Book and a Chat" is fellow Connecticut author "Millie Grenough". A Much traveled, her life changed from being a nun to a night club singer, sort of "Sister Act" in reverse.
After spending time in Latin America as a key member of an international development team, Millie got tired of not being able to converse with the Spanish speaking people that she met. On her return to Europe she created an innovative approach to learning languages for doctors and medical students. Her trademark "Sing it! Learn English Through Song “has lead to six books heeling people throughout the world learn English as a second language.
After a cycling accident she started thinking about her own life and how she could distress her life, this lead to her developing her "OASIS in the Overwhelm: 60-second strategies for balance in a busy world" program which is now out in a book to help people in their lives.
About "OASIS in the Overwhelm: 60-second strategies for balance in a busy world" (taken from Amazon)
OASIS in the Overwhelm introduces four specific strategies that are practical, easy to learn, take only sixty seconds, and designed to help busy people be more effective and happier at work and at home. Executive Coach and Clinical Instructor at the Yale School of Medicine Millie Grenough developed the strategies after her own near-death accident. OASIS tells her story, stories of her clients, and offers the latest results of scientific research that demonstrate the power to re-wire our brains towards greater health and happiness.
As one reviewer put it...
"I must confess some bias. I have taken Ms. Grenough's course in stress management and have found it incredibly helpful even two years after the fact. I purchased the book as a refresher and was extremely pleased at how doable the refreshing was. Take "must figure out how to get a grip" off your to do list. Purchase Oasis in the Overwhelm and find a new lease on life. The book is short, practical and to the point. I highly recommend it. "
After listening to Millie during the show I too would highly recommend her book.
