It seems as though not a day goes by that we don’t think
about money. We cut back on spending. We chase a bargain. We
try to save more. We strive to use less credit. We worry
about funding our retirement and our children’s education.
Yet we continue to spend money on things that don’t matter.
Peter Walsh knows that money and debt can overwhelm your
life even faster than clutter, and he has a plan to help you
deal with that emotional and financial chaos. Peter’s
previous bestselling books inspired us to successfully evict
the clutter in our homes, on our bodies, and in six key
areas of our lives. But for many people, clearing the
clutter suddenly exposes deeper issues—financial, physical,
and emotional. Sometimes our problems are not really about
the physical stuff but about the emotional fabric of our
lives—from our relationships with money to our relationships
with people and even how we define and find happiness.
In Lighten Up, Peter demonstrates that this
reassessment of priorities is a great opportunity to examine
our lives and circumstances and to make the changes
necessary to focus on the things that really matter.
Exploring the real source of happiness, Peter offers a clear
strategy for finding the delicate balance between what we
have, what we need, and what we want or feel entitled to.
With three unique audits that cover every aspect of our
well-being, he takes us step by step through sizing up not
just our possessions and financial statements but also our
thoughts, goals, use of time and energy, and even our
innermost sources of tension. He then shows us how to
embrace the changes we’ve experienced, set a new path for
the future, and come to accept that living on less can
feel—and be—so much richer.
In Lighten Up you
will learn how to:
• Change the way you and your
family measure happiness
• Face your financial
situation and set realistic priorities
• Create space
for what really matters
• Plan realistically for
financial and emotional security
• Be happier with
Peter’s plan will help you achieve a personal
balance that brings you happiness and the courage to choose
a richly rewarding life over the mindless pursuit of more
