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.

Professional reviews

"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.
