Peak Moment 220: When Cecile Andrews asked herself, "What matters?" the answer popped up: "Having time to do the things you want to do." She simplified her life, quit her full-time job, and started simplicity circles to support others in savoring life. Now she has expanded into neighborhood stop-and-chats and a Gross National Happiness movement. Her latest book advocates broadening the joy in our lives ? Less is More: Embracing Simplicity for a Healthy Planet, A Caring Economy, and Lasting Happiness.
