Summary, etc.:
"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...Slow provides practical advice and fascinating insights into: messiness to mindfulness, decluttering to de-owning, asking why to asking where to now? Slow is an invitation to live, not just to exist."--Page 4 of cover.
When McAlary decided that the key to happiness was discovering a simpler, more fulfilling existence, she reorganized her life to emphasize depth, connection and meaningful experiences. Here she provides practical advice and fascinating insights into the benefits and challenges of the slow life. From decluttering and de-owning to discovering mindfulness, she shows you how to create a life filled with things that really matter. -- adapted from back cover
