Publisher's Summary

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 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 it is meant for anyone seeking peace, meaning, and joy in their otherwise rapid lives.

Thumbs down for narrator....

So I didn't get very far. However, there are fun graphics and photos thru out the book, so I think the hardcopy would be best.

Inspiring, approachable and impactful.

This was a lovely book to listen to early each morning and let the ideas percolate throughout the day. Really appreciated the encouragement throughout and the idea of imperfect steps instead of perfection in making changes. Being used to the author’s own voice - in her podcasts- it took a little getting used to to warm up to the narrators voice but she did a great job. Would recommend this book whole-heartedly!
