Description-

  • Are you constantly striving to keep up with life's busy expectations? It's easy to feel consumed with the desire to "succeed" and "acquire," and miss the simple opportunities waiting for you to slow down: a walk in the forest, sharing laughter with family, a personal moment of gratitude . . . Once upon a time, it became clear to Brooke McAlary that the key to happiness was discovering a simpler, more fulfilling existence. She put the brakes on her stressful path, and reorganized her life to live outside the status-quo, emphasizing depth, connection, and meaningful experiences. Alongside Brooke's affirming personal stories of breaking down and rising up, Slow provides practical advice and fascinating insights into the benefits and challenges of the slow life, such as: decluttering to de-owning; messiness to mindfulness; and asking why to asking where to now? Slow is an inspirational guide on creating a life filled with the things that really matter, and is meant for anyone seeking peace, meaning, and joy in their otherwise rapid lives.

About the Author-

  • After being diagnosed with severe post-natal depression in 2011, Brooke McAlary embarked on a one-woman mission to cut out the excess in her life and reconnect with what was really important. She writes the blog Slow Your Home and hosts and produces The Slow Home Podcast.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Australian author and popular podcaster Brooke McAlary advises listeners on how to slow down to embrace their own best lives. When she finds herself diagnosed with postpartum depression, McAlary's psychiatrist asks her whether she's ever considered "doing less-- slowing down." Narrator Larissa Gallagher's pleasantly Australian voice shares insights from McAlary's long (and ongoing) journey to do just that--create a life with less anxiety and more health, happiness, and peace. Gallagher captures the author's own imperfect efforts to understand why a slower life is a better life. Striking a sympathetic and conversational tone without any preachiness, she's easy on the ears for those contemplating their own too-fast, too-cluttered lives. Listeners will enjoy learning to embrace "wobbly balance"--the realization they can't do it all perfectly--and to harness their own best versions of mindfulness techniques.
