Cait Flanders is a former binge consumer turned mindful consumer of everything.
Through personal stories, she writes about what happens when money, minimalism, and mindfulness cross paths. Cait's story has been shared in The New York Times, The Guardian, Vogue, Forbes, and more. Her first book, The Year of Less, is a self-help memoir that was released in January 2018 and quickly became a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
In this episode, Cait talks about mindful consumption and what that looks like for her in her real life. She shares stories about the past year, talking honestly about publishing her first book, what the impact of that was on her mental health, why she's decided to retire from personal blogging after eight years, and more.
Cait is such a thoughtful person, and it was such a joy to talk openly with her about fear, quitting things, changing your life, and stepping into the unknown.
If you're interested in slowing down, and in being a more mindful consumer and creator, I bet you'll get a lot from what Cait shares in this conversation. I know I did!
