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.

    " I listened to the audiobook thanks to my local library. It was very up to date and addressed issues facing today's families. I especially enjoyed Peter's discussion of advertising--good material to retain and review. "

    " Goes beyond physical "stuff" to examine what mental and emotional baggage we are hoarding.... "

    " I'd give this book 2.5 stars. I found the suggestions here to be too similar to Walsh's It's All Too Much. Good suggestions for "lightening up" to help find happiness and make life more manageable for those who haven't read or heard Walsh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gregory | 1/29/2011

    " The chapter on doing a home inventory was of value. The author gave good insights on letting go of "stuff" including the things that have been passed down from family members which we find sentimental value in.

    Time to get rid of Auntie's bread twist collection :-) "

    " More of the same good stuff from Peter Walsh. Case studies are good. Glad he is not writing the same book over and over--this is a new but related topic. "
