Product description

Product Description

"Dear Mr & Mrs Jones, I am writing to inform you of my withdrawal from the race to keep up with you..."

Once upon a time, Brooke McAlary was as close to having it all as she'd ever hoped. Married to a wonderful man, mother to a lively and lovely daughter, and pregnant for a second time, she'd acquired all the things she'd once thought important: holidays, cars, a renovated home. Yet despite this, Brooke found herself utterly despondent.

While suffering from post-natal depression following the birth of her second child, Brooke realised she wanted a simpler, more fulfilling existence. Since then, she and her family have gradually created a way of living largely outside the status quo, with an emphasis on depth, connection and experiences instead of stuff, busy-ness and stressful striving.

Part memoir, part practical companion, Slow provides a fascinating insight into the benefits of slowing down and shows how the process isn't nearly as straightforward as many people might think. Brooke uses the experience of her own breakdown and gradual recovery to gently outline the value of a simpler lifestyle. From decluttering to de-owning, messiness to mindfulness, from asking why, to asking where to now?

Slow is all about the benefits of no longer caring about the Joneses - and an inspirational account of creating a life filled with the things that really matter to you. Slowly - of course.
