Publisher's Summary

Do you ever feel like life is weighing you down? Like the stuff in your home, the to-dos in your schedule, the worries in your heart are too much? Make "lightly" your mantra, one lovely little word to live by, and transform your life.  

There's no shortage of decluttering books on the market, but Lightly is different. It goes beyond decluttering - far beyond - to uplift your thoughts, your actions, every moment and aspect of your life. 

Learn how to lighten:   

  • Your stuff: create a serene space with your favorite things 
  • Your step: consume less and live in harmony with the Earth 
  • Your stress: be less busy and breeze through your days 
  • Your spirit: clear emotional baggage from your mind and heart 

Lightly is like a recipe book for minimalism, designed so you can dip into it anytime for advice and inspiration. Whether you want to clear out a closet, free up some time, or get rid of a nagging guilt, you can listen to the relevant section for the help you need. 

What's more, Lightly is a complete philosophy of life. When you're tempted by an impulse purchase, trying to resist a chocolate donut, or struggling to say no to another obligation, all you have to remember is one word - "lightly" - to boost your resolve and make beautiful choices. It doesn't get any easier than that.  

With this book, Francine Jay makes minimalism more doable and delightful than ever. In just minutes a day you can cast off the weight, and glide through life more lightly and gracefully.

Relaxed Approach to Simplifying Your Life

Love the light attitude of this book toward minimizing. Great book for a beginner or anyone needing a very uplifting approach to decluttering. I’ve been simplifying my life for decades and this is my favorite book on the topic, so far.

Recording is not crisp and clear

I found this book to be excellent. Unfortunately the recording is not. It’s rather muffled and difficult to understand at times. I don’t know if it’s the voice of the performer or the technique used in recording her words. I wish it had been “crisper” so I could’ve enjoyed hearing Francine Jay’s words more easily.

Did not like the narrator!

This is a good book but I found the way the narrator was reading very distracting. It was way too breathy with strange inflection changes that sounded as if the sentence was ending in the middle instead of at the end. The important points the author was trying to make got totally lost in this weird narration. Could not finish listening to the end!

narration

The content on the book was great, but unfortunately it was hard to listen to. Seem like the narrator had the microphone too close to her mouth and the sound was very nasal.

Stoicism? NO THANKS! I'll take Jesus!

Did not realize this was stoicism based. No thanks! RETURNED! Not worth my time or my money.
