In his previous best-selling 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.

I love this book! It covers where me and so many are at this time! I am not saying that John Lee didn't do a great job narrating, but I do miss Peter's voice and his personality that comes though!
I love this book! I learned so much about myself and the impact clutter has on my life. I listen to this book every week as I tackle the clutter in my house and find it inspirational every time.
I don't know why they picked John Lee to narrate this book when he has a similar accent to Peter Walsh yet minus the passion for the subject. I thought he read too fast but the content is still 5 stars.
Peter looks at things some people don't want to see. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it . He keeps us on our toes. I will listen to it often so as not to forget the precious life guidelines.
