I first ‘met’ Bettina Deda on Twitter. We share the same life experience of downsizing. The difference is I muddled through it ‘helping’ my mum and Bettina did hers in style. In fact she is the Downsizing with Style guru.
Bettina is a super organised Australian interior designer who has recently published her book Downsize with Style, available on Amazon and iBooks.
In Downsize with Style you will find a clear road map to downsizing without losing your sanity. There are 5 great tips that will get you focussed and to stay focussed, good organisational tips…much more of what you can find on her blog. In her book, Bettina tackles the emotional part of downsizing, the fear that hits you every time you think about doing it and then the wave of sadness which hits you out of the blue, every now and again. With Bettina’s help you can start to see this stage in your life as a positive experience:
Downsizing is often associated with negative feelings and emotions. I would like to encourage you to see it differently. Live with an attitude of gratitude, gratitude for the time you spent with your family and friends in your family home. Embrace the change while downsizing and be open to opportunities that come with it. Only when you step out of your comfort zone will you experience new things.
What makes this book worth the read is that when Bettina has tackled all of those real emotional issues, she uses her love of colour, art and design to help you start understanding your own personal style …and then she sets you on the path to start a new exciting chapter of your life.
You can buy the paperback at Amazon £17.54 or download the e-book to your Kindle for £11.99
or you can download it at iBooks £14.99
