One of the best parts of the Listener Chat episodes are the insights into how people apply slow living to their everyday – without a blog or a book or a podcast to share it with. It’s these insights – these hard-fought, battle-tested, real-world strategies that Brooke loves uncovering in the semi-regular Listener Chats, and this episode is no exception.
Today Brooke chats with Juanita, a mother of two from Sydney whose story is one that is sure to resonate with a lot of people.
Juanita and Brooke talk about the illness that laid her out for months last year, and her somewhat begrudging entry into slow living as a result. They also discuss the decision to skip out on the busy Christmas season last year and the restorative road trip Juanita and her family took.
As an environmentalist, Juanita was further down the conscious consumption path than others may find themselves in the beginning, but it was the work she had to do to lower her standards and personal expectations that was the most challenging.
