Life is weighing us down. Each day we add more possessions, more commitments, more worries, more stress to our lives. Striving for fulfillment, our closets become overstuffed, our calendars overscheduled, and our spirits overwhelmed. Instead of feeling happy, we just feel heavy.Lightly
offers help. Whether you want to strip down your life to a backpack or free up some space in your closet, overhaul your schedule or gain back an hour in the evening, Lightly
helps you identify what you treasure, while letting what’s unnecessary fall away. You will learn to lighten:
- Your Stuff: advice on how to declutter what’s weighing you down
- Your Spirit: release the worries and emotional baggage that can be just as burdensome as possessions
- Your Stress: reclaim your time and strive not to get more done, but to have less to do
- Your Step: reduce your consumption and make the planet as beautiful and clutter-free as your home
Without a strict regimen, Lightly
puts the power back in your hands to take control of your life.
