ABOUT THE BOOK
A gentle guide for helping readers discover their best life by finding the right-sized home in the best location.
Moving is no fun. Neither is getting rid of stuff. And both jobs get harder as we get older. So, when those over a certain age — say, in the last third of life — are looking to downsize and move all at the same time, many will conclude, “I’ll just stay put, thank you very much.” It’s not just the acquired possessions holding them back, but also the intangibles. Their memories, their family history, their identities are all in jeopardy, they think. And yet, that reluctance to lighten up, let go, and move on is commonly all that stands between them and a better life.
Rightsize Today to Create Your Best Life Tomorrow will help this group of root-bound home dwellers cross the bridge between being stuck in the past and a lighter, better future. It will encourage them to embrace the fact that now, when they’re no longer tethered to a school system or to a job they need to be near, is their chance to live where they want to live. Every section contains checklists: some soul-searching (should you or shouldn’t you move?), some practical (what every kitchen must have), and some logistical (where’s your happy place?), to help readers on their journey.
Included are profiles of those who proactively changed their housing in the last third of their life. Whether they moved to a smaller place, remodeled their existing home, or even moved to a larger home, which one third do; whether they moved to a new city, to a senior community, or to a new home in the same neighborhood, they all reimagined their lives, re-evaluated their belongings and made a move toward a better and possibly their best life yet.
This book will help those who are stuck explore what’s holding them back, and provide with the insights, experiences, and courage to move forward.
