Why Bother?

Discover the Desire for What’s Next

The new book from best-selling author Jennifer Louden

How do you bother after heartbreak, after creative and career defeats, after loss, after sidelining your dreams to pay off debt, raise kids, or take care of aging parents?

How do you keep going when you’ve always done the right thing, but never your thing?

How do you move forward when your to-do list is checked off, and you can’t find the energy for more?

Does anything you do matter when the world is in such dire straits?

The original self-care pioneer, Jennifer Louden, faced these questions after a number of hellish years that included grief, creative faceplants, and divorce. “Why bother?” she asked herself, as she spun into a good old-fashioned existential crisis. That question dragged her down into meaninglessness—until a scary coincidence jolted her awake.

What if she actually tried to answer the question?

“This is a truly brilliant book. Jennifer Louden is warm, down-to-earth, and thoroughly practical as she explores the profound question of what matters most to each of us. It’s quite stunning how she weaves together personal stories, deep reflections, inspiration, and immediately useful actions. A gem. ”

– Rick Hanson, Ph.D.

“Chock-full of deeply vulnerable and courageous stories, Jennifer Louden’s latest book helps you understand, first and foremost, that you’re not alone. And that knowledge might be one of the biggest gifts, as she guides you to discovering your own answer to ‘why bother?’ A riveting book.”

– Karen Walrond
