Do you ever feel like everything is weighing you down? Make 'lightly' your new mantra, and transform your life.

There's no shortage of decluttering books on the market, but Lightly is different. It goes beyond decluttering - far beyond - to uplift your thoughts, your actions, every moment and aspect of your life. When you declutter and call it a day, it's easy to backslide. But when your entire life is aligned to a guiding principle - to live lightly - you'll find a new sense of purpose and fulfilment.

This book is a minimalist manual for everyone - whether you want to strip down your stuff to the essentials or simply free some space in your coat closet. Whether you want to overhaul your schedule or just gain an hour or two in the evening. Whether you want to change your entire outlook on life or just get rid of a nagging guilt.

You will learn to:

lighten your stuff: declutter what's weighing you down
lighten your spirit: release your worries and emotional baggage
lighten your stress: reclaim your time and strive not to get more done, but to have less to do
lighten your step: reduce your consumption and make the planet as beautiful and clutter-free as your home

A concise and coherent philosophy of life, Lightly gives you all the techniques to start small and go slowly, while working your way up to bigger challenges. Crucially, it helps you decide what to keep, rather than what to get rid of. The end result is a well-edited collection of your favourite things, carefully curated items that make your everyday easier or happier.

A powerful conduit for self-reflection, Lightly ensures that you end up with things and a frame of mind that tell the story of the life you want to live.
