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.

Restorative time out
I love listening to this podcast and myself re-listening to them whenever I need to break from life. They are just nice, calm and relaxing. If only they produced more x
Its essence is brilliant. The marital banter can detract though.’
I really enjoy the essence of this podcast -
Brooke is really thoughtful and incisive, and the podcast can often make me pause very deliberately to consider my own approach to mindful, slow living. I’m afraid I enjoy most the episodes without Ben. The jokey banter he brings for me detracts from the calm, thoughtful, contemplative atmosphere that Brooke creates
Just love it so much
This podcast has really helped me make my life more manageable knowing someone has been through some of the stuff I have and come out the other side. Love the chats between Ben and Brooke and the happiness they share shines out.
