Description

In her newest book, bestselling author and founder of Simplified(R) Emily Ley brings a revolutionary exploration of how to live a life of more in a world that often overwhelms to the point of burnout. Emily empathizes with readers in the throes of exhaustion and provides tools for nourishing their spirits and achieving a life where less becomes more.

Statistics don't lie. People today are more fatigued, burned out, and overwhelmed than ever. Smartphones constantly ping and alert and demand our attention. And social media can eat up hours of our days with mindless scrolling and tapping while leaving many feeling empty and lonely. Add to that family commitments, work that is accessible around the clock, and overscheduling, and you have a life that can feel unmanageable and frantic . . . even running on empty.

Emily Ley, author of bestselling Grace, Not Perfection and A Simplified Life, is here to tell you that there's more--so much more. In this book, Emily Ley takes readers on a journey out of that empty place and shows them how to fill their wells with the nourishment that only true connection can provide. She also presents some radical concepts that push against the tethers of modern life, with the promise that more of the good stuff comes when we say yes to less of what keeps us empty:

  • Less rush, more rhythm
  • Less great, more good
  • Less fake, more real
  • Less noise, more singing
  • Less outside world, more inside family
  • Less correction, more conversation
  • Less talking at, more dreaming with
  • Less stuff, more treasures
  • Less chasing, more cherishing
  • Less activities, more traditions

Getting to more might require some outside-the-box changes, some unraveling of the patterns readers have adopted, some reworking of the day-to-day so that they can build a life based on their core values instead of slipping into a life dictated by society or what's "normal." Because we weren't made for normal. We were made for more--for a life of fullness, dreaming, and lasting joy.

Emily Ley does it again with a fantastic book! When Less Becomes More is for any woman that is feeling overwhelmed or run down- Emily’s words are heart warming and easily applied to real life to help us make space for what is important. The book itself is beautiful and the words inside even more beautiful. I highly recommend to anyone in any season of life (student, young professional, mother, etc.) as this book is a treasure!

Reading When Less Become More felt more like a conversation with Emily Ley rather than the reading of another self-help book. The layout of the text makes for an easy read and the photos are beautiful. It is so refreshing to know that I am not the only one who struggles with feeling overwhelmed. We are all made for more.

What an amazing and needed message! It is so freeing to have permission to do life differently, to realize we have choices to create the life we truly want and to be reminded that things and hustle just don't deliver at the end of the day. I appreciated the practical tips and inspired by her words. Good read!!

Less Really is More

This book along with anything Emily Ley writes is a constant reminder that less really is more. So much of our lives are filled with constantly being busy and always on the go. Even as someone without kids I found so many ways to find this book applicable in my life. I'm so encouraged to say "no," work to slow down my life, and really embrace the things that mean the most to me instead of all the things I "have to do." If you're busy and constantly feeling overwhelmed - give this book a read. I think it will bless your soul and give you permission to have less of all the things and more of only the things that truly matter.

This book is fantastically written, and such a beautiful book! But it goes more than surface-deep! You will feel encouraged & heard as you read this book, and you will find that so many others are having similar struggles & stresses that you are! Emily is so raw & real, and I love how she isn't afraid to say it like it is, call it all out on the table, so that we can MAKE A CHANGE! We don't have to live like this!!! Thank you, Emily, for this book & for the heart behind your entire company!! You are making this world a better place one woman at a time!

Single or married, mother or not, young or old, this book is for every woman. This book was really written for women in any stage of life. She talks about her life which may not match your own stage but the wisdom behind her words is there for everyone. Emily encourages you to look at your life and your circumstance and see where you can say no to the hustle in order to make room for what matters. She reminds us that we were made for more than just a busy life. This is a book I’ll read again and again. It’s a book I’ll give to some of the women in my life and it’s a book I’ll share with my daughters when they, too, need to step off the hamster wheel and make room for the good stuff.

Emily nailed it again. I love how practical and beautiful her books are. She combines personal examples, practical tips, and beautiful photos in a book that while refreshing, the book challenges you to say no to striving for the perfect life and encourages creating a life that is good and beautiful. The message that life doesn’t have to be lived at a frantic pace and there is beauty in the slow and simple, is one I’m slowly building into my own. Emily reminds you that you can make the changes that will allow you to get your life back and just because you have the opportunity to do something, doesn’t mean you HAVE to do everything.
