How much of your life is spent on trivial things? Things that rob you of your time and energy. Maybe you need to make time and space for what really matters to you. Author and Slow Your Home founder, Brooke McAlary, did just that, changing her life from a crazy busy, stressful way of living that was making her ill, to a deeply fulfilling and happy life.
“I think there is a correlation between the idea of striving for happiness and accepting contentment… When I started to recognise that contentment is actually far more important and found that contentment can actually be where you are… that was huge.”
“You can live a balanced life, but I don’t think you can achieve it on a day to day basis…We need to look at the idea of balance over a period…You want to be able to look at a ten thousand foot view of your life and see that you’ve spent time on the things that matter.”
When Brooke McAlary realised that she didn’t have to be Superwoman, her life changed dramatically, and she’s never been happier. She shares tips from her new book, Destination Simple, which provides easy strategies for doing less and feeling more contented.
Plus, Dr. Oscar Serrallach joins us on The Journey of Wellness to explain the importance of water for our health.
