Descripción

We live life in the fast lane. We race to keep up with the Joneses. We are over-worked, over-connected and over-stressed, and we compete over how busy and important and sleep-deprived we are. But we don't have to.

There's an ever-growing group of people opting out of a life lived at 110%. They are choosing to slow down, simplify, say no and focus on the things that are truly important. Brooke McAlary is one of them.

Brooke McAlary shows readers that no matter how busy you are, you too can feel in control of your days; minimize stress; find pockets of peace on even the busiest day; empty your mind and sleep better.

Destination Simple shows us how a few changes to the flow of daily life can create long-term, lasting change.

About Destination simple

To my family: You’ve been the making of me. I love you all to the moon and back.

To everyone who has read or listened to Slow Your Home over the past few years: thank you.

Hi, I’m Brooke! I’m a thirty-something recovering burnout living in the Blue Mountains, just outside Sydney, Australia, with my wonderful family, dog, chickens and ever-evolving garden. I’m a writer, an inappropriate laugher and an advocate for the best things in life – siestas, time spent outside, travel and the lost art of doing nothing. I’m also someone who, after a period of darkness, ill-health and upheaval, decided to simplify my life and the life of my family.

Step by step. Piece by piece. Day by day.

And largely, I’ve been successful.

I’ve decluttered our family home of thousands of unwanted items and organised it to a point that works for us. I feel physically lighter and am more content, and am prone to unexpected bursts of happiness. I also dance while sweeping, sing while driving and actually enjoy playing with my kids. I’m a changed person and my family is a changed family, all because we adopted the idea of living more simply.

I hope you’ll join me …

About Brooke McAlary

An Invitation from the Publisher

Copyright

We’re so caught up in trying to do everything, experience all the essential things, not miss out on anything important …

We can’t read all the good books, watch all the good films, go to all the best cities in the world, try all the best restaurants, meet all the great people … Life is better when we don’t try to do everything.

Learn to enjoy the slice of life you experience, and life turns out to be wonderful.
