Summary

Summary

A guide to opting out of expectations and living a more intentional life from the national bestselling author of The Year of Less.

Nights out drinking. Living with debt. Working in the corporate world. Television and various social media platforms. Shopping. A home filled with clutter. Having a home at all. These are just a few of the things Cait Flanders has opted out of in the past 10 years. With each decision, she has learned there is an incredible parallel between taking a different path in life, and the psychological work it takes to summit a mountain -- especially when you decide to go solo.

In Adventures in Opting Out, Flanders offers a trail map to letting go of stories that are no longer serving you, and creating an intentional life that emphasizes the beauty of the natural world, the importance of gaining new perspectives, the joys of real human connection, and the peace that comes from living in harmony with your own values.

Choosing to opt out is a brave decision, and an infinitely rewarding one. But that doesn't mean it's easy. There will be challenges along the way -- beliefs uncovered, demons confronted, relationships changed and lost -- but with Flanders's guidance and advice, drawn from her own journey and examples of others who have picked the road less traveled, you'll have all the encouragement and insight you'll need to build a life of exploration, discovery, and purpose. Just step up to the trailhead and expect it to be an adventure.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Opting out isn’t about taking huge risks or being perfect in how you navigate new trails in your life. Cait Flanders’s book isn’t a simple how-to, full of hacks and tips; it’s more like having a helpful fellow traveler on your journey, one who gently shows you how to critically examine which new paths may be worth exploring.” Paul Jarvis, author of Company of One
