Hi! We’re Danny, Jaclyn, Ewan, and Salem Brown.
We’re your hosts at A Downsized Life, sharing our adventures and lessons as we look to simplify our lives and – hopefully – help you do the same.
In the winter of 2019, we moved from the busy city life that was Burlington in Southern Ontario, Canada, to the small town of Port Sydney.
A Downsized Life charts these challenges, and shares how we overcame them, or worked around them. It also shares lessons learned, ongoing challenges, and how all of that can (hopefully) help you downsize your own life, if that’s something you’re considering.
We promise to be honest and open about all of our experiences, good and bad. And, who knows, maybe we can share some laughs together along the way!
The Loneliness of Downsizing and Starting Over
One of the things that doesn't get spoken about often enough is the loneliness that can be felt when downsizing and starting over.
It’s the Little Things
After two months of making the move from a large Canadian City to a small town three hours north, we're discovering little things that we may not have expected.

A Downsized Life shares our journey as we look to live a simpler life, away from the everyday stresses of living in a big city, and all that entails.
