Destination Simple Book
Simplify your life - from the inside out
Brooke McAlary knows first-hand the power of simplifying and living with less. After being diagnosed with postnatal depression, she embraced a slower, more intentional life.

She looked for ways to adapt them to fit a life in lockdown, all the while protecting and prioritising her health, energy and passion.

Discover how a few changes to the flow of daily life can create long-term, lasting change.
About the Author
Brooke McAlary is passionate about slow living. She has experienced the transformative power of simplifying, paying attention and living a mindful, intentional life, and as the host and creator of the award-winning Slow Home Podcast (downloaded more than 2 million times) she encourages thousands of people every day to live a simpler, slower life.
But it wasn't always like that. Six years ago Brooke was completely overwhelmed. She had two young children, a husband who worked long hours, a business, a home filled to the brim with all the trappings of a 'successful life' and a severe case of post-natal depression.
Everything changed when she began decluttering. What began as an effort to remove some of the excess, slowly evolved into a complete transformation. Gone is the overwhelm, the clutter, the excess, the busy-ness, replaced by a simpler, more meaningful, more connected life.
Now she and her husband are self-employed and enjoy a life centred on the important things - which, it turns out, aren't really things at all.
