We live life in the fast lane. We race to keep up with The Joneses. We are over-worked, over-connected and over-stressed, and we compete on how busy and important and sleep-deprived we are. But we don't have to. There is an ever-growing group of people who are saying no to life lived at 110%. They are opting to slow down, simplify, say no and focus on the things that are truly important. Brooke McAlary, founder of SlowYourHome.com, is one of them, and in this podcast she chats to others who have adopted a similar approach to life: simple living, slowing down, opting out, saying no. Learn what makes people change, how life is different, and what their advice is to anyone looking to get out of the fast lane.

It’s like listening to friends

I love listening to Brooke and Ben. They are so kind and giving and let us into their lives in an open and honest way. Brooke is an expert in slow living, but not afraid to listen and learn from her guests and give them space to share their knowledge. I wish I knew Brooke and Ben in real life, but also kind of feel like I already do.
