In a world that screams for more, is it possible to live with less?
Simplicity expert and author, Courtney Carver, not only believes it’s possible, she’s proof that you can.
A wake-up call from her doctor was all it took for Courtney to realize that there’s more to life than the pursuit of more. With a new outlook on life, she learned how to let go of busyness and the obsession with material things and exchanged them for a lifestyle of simplicity, peace, and joy.
Now she wants to help you do the same.
In her new book, Soulful Simplicity, Courtney shows us how to pare down not only our closets but our mental and emotional spaces. Providing tips for living a life of practical minimalism, she outlines how to cut out the clutter, dig out of debt and make the space and time for ourselves and loved ones. Along the way, Courtney shares her personal story with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)—how the stress of working at a job that didn’t align with her heart impacted her health, and how she identified the source of her debt and rebuilt her financial future.
In this honest and thought-provoking interview, Courtney and I discuss:
- the details of the wake-up call that started her on the journey to simplicity
- the steps she took to bring simplicity to her heart, home and life
- how our emotions keep us from a lifestyle of simplicity and how to overcome them
- the importance of understanding your “why” before you get to the “how”
- the choices we make and how they affect our ability to have a simpler lifestyle
- her minimalist fashion challenge Project 333,
- her Busy Boycott
- and much more!
If you are overwhelmed, stressed out and exhausted from a life of too much, this interview (and book) is for you! [Tweet “There’s more to life than the pursuit of more. Soulful Simplicity: An interview with author Courtney Carver”]
