Description
In his previous bestselling books, Peter Walsh helped audiences successfully get rid of the clutter in their homes, on their bodies, and in the six key emotional and spiritual areas of their lives. Now, in Lighten Up, Walsh explores what happens when the clutter is finally gone and shows listeners how to let go of wanting more and learn to live a richer, fuller life with what they already own. For many of us, the new austerity has left us feeling afraid and deprived, but Walsh explains that this shift in priorities is a great opportunity to reassess our lives and circumstances and make changes that focus us on the things that really matter. He asks two questions: How much does the life you want cost-in money, time, and energy? And what would your ideal life be? He then offers clear practical steps to help listeners find the balance between these two answers and offers ways to scale down their wants by repurposing, reusing, and reimagining what they already own so that they can create a life of clarity, balance, and peace.

      • content: John Lee does a splendid job capturing the author's optimistic message that people are happiest when they simplify their lives. With poetic and accessible language, the charming author says that we feel lighter and freer when we reduce clutter and buy only things we use. We also simplify when we address issues like family disorganization, anger and anxiety in relationships, and the belief that we don't deserve to be happy. Crafty exercises promote the honest discussions we need to have with ourselves and family members regarding what we really want in life. With the help of John Lee's enthusiasm and consistency, Walsh's inviting wisdom creates the hope that we can rein in our excesses and recast what it means for us to be happy. T.W.

        Organizational guru Walsh (Enough Already!) coaches readers in dealing with psychological clutter tied to money and finances so they can live thrifty lives that are also liberating, pleasurable, and rewarding. In a book brimming with case studies, pop quizzes, letters from Walsh's fans testifying to the joys of living with less, and exercises probing what readers want from their financial lives, careers, and relationships, Walsh says we must discern our wants from our needs so that the overpurchasing of goods and services doesn't just consume our energy and bank accounts but also our happiness and our chances of achieving peaceful lives At the crux of this book are three audits designed to instigate life changes: a financial audit combined with assessments of the physical junk filling our homes and the emotional junk causing tension in our lives. Throughout, Walsh challenges readers to face not just the physical clutter overwhelming their homes but also the psychological underpinnings to their habits and attitudes, to confront family members, and to establish tough boundaries within the limits of their family's means. Although the advice is familiar, motivated readers will find plenty of helpful tips to jump-start their self-transformations.
