Welcome to STYLE Canada‘s Boreal Book Club: a monthly meeting narrated by Erin Catto, (reviewer at Girl Well Read), for bookworms who are looking to scour new pages. Since we aim to shine a spotlight on all things Canadian in life and style, beauty, and health and wellness, it goes without saying that every instalment of the Boreal Book Club will feature a Canadian author and their latest title.

If you think there aren’t enough hours in the day for you to be creative, or to dedicate yourself to something you are passionate about, let Karma Brown’s The 4% Fix show you how to find the time without sacrificing other commitments.
This is not a book filled with jargon and spreadsheets—Brown provides her readers with a solid, practical approach that’s infused with humour and personal experience.
How will you use this one hour—only 4% of your day—to change your life?
In the time of COVID, we are all busy and overwhelmed with responsibilities and daily tasks, and feel like we have no time or motivation. The 4% Fix is about finding an hour that is yours to harness, to exploit, or to take on a project that you want to do.
You may be wondering where you’re supposed to come up with an extra hour when you’re already feeling like you don’t have enough time to accomplish what is on your plate. Brown’s solution is to wake up an hour earlier each day. She gets up at 5 a.m. to write all of her books and has been doing so for years.
For Karma, it is the right time to carve out that hour that is just for her—it’s pretty quiet at 5 a.m. Yet for the sleep deprived, this sounds impossible and quite frankly, unappealing. But the idea is to find that hour to dedicate to yourself and make it a habit.
Pick up your own copy of The 4% Fix or keep reading to learn more about Brown in an inclusive interview with STYLE Canada.
GWR: The structure of The 4% Fix is very digestible. Did you always have it planned out this way or was it something that came about as you started writing?
GWR: I love the quotes you included. Do you have a favourite?
GWR: Did your writing process differ because this was a non-fiction book?
GWR: Tell me about the research you did for The 4% Fix since your journalism background played a part.
GRW: Which subjects do you wish more authors would write about?
GRW: What made you decide to write this book?
GRW: Would you ever write another non-fiction book?
GWR: Can you share what you’re working on now?
