Lighten Your Load by Living Your Values
Many people declare they know what is important to them, yet consistently make choices that complicate rather than simplify their lives and work.

Fortunately, it’s easy to bring your life back into alignment to increase your overall wellbeing and expand your happiness. Through personal and group exercises, rediscover what really matters and how to reinforce those values with every choice, from “what’s for lunch?” to major life decisions.
