‘A fantastic guide for anyone hoping to improve their well-being. A simple yet comprehensive approach to leading a healthier and calmer life. A wonderful book!’
Dr Gemma Newman, Author, GP and Podcast Host

'In this book Dr Emma manages to create a positive, affirming guide that inspires us to evaluate what might not be working for us and how to make changes to improve that, without being overwhelming and therefore offputting. How (not) to Do It All is a helpful, inspiring and practical guide to being healthier.' Saffia Farr, Editor, JUNO Magazine


‘During my PhD, I spent many hours at cancer-related conferences, and it was clear that vast amounts of research time and money are spent on the diagnosis of cancer and its treatment. This is vitally important, but significantly fewer resources are spent on health promotion and cancer prevention. I strongly feel that prevention is better than cure, and I’m very passionate about improving health and wellbeing.
I have also experienced “Superwoman Syndrome” and am aware of countless other women who are in the same boat. Although there is a wealth of advice about how to achieve a desirable work-life balance, there is a lack of information which addresses why we might take on too much in the first place. In this book we take a look at the reasons why we overcommit, and explore strategies to overcome this.’ – Emma Short
