How much money does it take to make you happy? How much stuff?
What if you could live with a lot less stuff and a lot less money, yet be happier than you’ve ever been?
It’s not a trick. It can happen. You just need to learn how.
For years, Peter Walsh has been helping people simplify their lives. You’ve probably seen him on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and now he even has his own show on Oprah’s new network, OWN.
In his new book, “Lighten Up: Love What You Have, Have What You Need, Be Happier With Less,” he lays out an action plan to help you stop chasing more stuff and instead start finding a new way to live.
He says it will bring you greater happiness, less stress and a more fulfilling life at home.
Peter says he doesn’t want you to give all your stuff away or stop buying things. But he says the problems with stuff arise when it starts to fracture our families. He thinks the past couple years of economic downturns have led to a real groundswell in this country — we’re all reaching a point where we realize more is not better.
Whether you’re in this situation by choice or if you’ve been forced into, Peter says this is where we are now and it’s time to start making tough choices.
Peter gives practical steps to get this process started, including how to be open with your partner — no more financial secrets!
Plus, find out the questions you should ask yourself before every purchase, every extravagant meal and even the words we use with each other.
He says his teachings apply to the way we talk to each other. Are there kinder ways to speak to those we disagree with? Are we using words that make our lives, relationships and even country the best it could be?
