Overload is not having time to finish the book you're reading on stress. Margin is having time to read it twice. Overload is fatigue. Margin is energy. Overload is red ink. Margin is black ink. Overload is hurry. Margin is calm. Overload is anxiety. Margin is security. Overload is the disease of our time. Margin is the cure.

Margin is the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits. It is something held in reserve for contingencies or unanticipated situations.

In Margin Dr. Richard Swenson provides a prescription against the danger of overloaded lives. Focusing on margin in four key areas - emotional energy, physical energy, time, and finances - he offers an overall picture of health that employs contentment, simplicity, balance and rest.

If you yearn for relief from the pain and pressure of overload, take a lifelong dose of Margin. The benefits of good health, financial stability, fulfilling relationships, and availability for God's purposes will follow you all your days.

Comments from people who have used this material:

"I recently realized that every time I see someone on television sleeping in a hammock, I'm envious. It just looks so appealing! Well, I think I know why. It's because people who have time to nap in a hammock, have margin. Today I finished Dr. Richard Swenson's book of that title, which rates as one of the most important books on life-management that I've read. Swenson is convinced (and I think he's right) that we live in an unprecedented age where the pace and complexity of life conspire to produce exponential levels of stress and overload. Margin is the space in various areas of our lives - physical, emotional, time, financial - that can protect us from overload. When margin decreases, stress increases and burn-out is the end result.
As a whole, this is a commendable book and one that is needed by most of the people I know. Almost everyone is too busy, stressed, tired, and overloaded. I certainly have been. And I intend to make some changes. One of those just may be purchasing a hammock for my back yard, so that I can enjoy some afternoon naps every now and then while my son plays in his sandbox nearby." Brian H., Michigan

"What Swenson writes makes so much sense. This book is changing the way I approach work and life in general. I am even giving a talk to young adult ministry leaders this weekend incorporating many of the principles from the book. This is a much read to ask you to take a close look at your life and what you are living for." - William B, N. Carolina

"That Dick Swenson has continued to educate readers on the guiding principles of his life and Christian ministry is both needed and exciting. This book remains a great inspiration and practical help to all who read it."
Jay Kesler

"Dr Swenson is the most insightful diagnostician I know on the world wide epidemic of overload. More importantly, he knows the cure! His prescriptions in Margin will rebalance your life, restore your relationships, and renew your joy. I recommend this resource for everyone over age four living in America today."
David L. Stevens, M.D.
