The Slow Life Project:

Turn busy into clarity of purpose and confidence of action.

Hi, I’m Lana

In my 12 years working as a psychologist, I’ve helped thousands of people reduce their stress and overwhelm, improve their confidence, and learn to do what brings them joy.

My secret to success is taking clinical knowledge and research and turning it into easy to understand, and easy to action, steps. Steps you can use to slow down, get clear on what matters to you, and live your life aligned with who you truly are.

Everything I recommend, I use myself in my own life. I know first hand what I teach works, and the rewards it brings.

What people are saying about The Slow Life Project Book

The Slow Life Project instantly appealed to me. As a chronically busy person, a slow life seems both desirable and unattainable. So, I am grateful that I received this book at a time that I had just enough of a lull to start reading it, and once I started reading it was something I wanted to make time for.

The way that the book is structured makes it easy to work though a little at a time. The exercises are not overwhelmingly complex but build on one another in a way that helped me to understand what it was that made me gravitate toward the idea of a slow life and to develop my ‘slow life map’ based on my own values and intrinsic needs.

In my work, I spend much of my time helping organisations to navigate change and firmly believe that successful change comes from each individual understanding not only what is changing, how it affects them and what they need to do, but WHY they need to change. The Slow Life Project gives more than just the tools of how to change, it helped me discover my ‘why’, and that is why along with my slow life map and Lana’s guidance on how to navigate a purposefully slower life using it give me confidence in developing my own pathway to ‘living a life with more meaning, authenticity and joy’.

The Slow Life Project should be required reading for anyone who craves a more meaningful, intentional life.

The Slow Life Project is a useful approach to living well. It provides a helpful framework that is easy to follow, plus explanations, guidance and further reading for those that want more.

The Slow Life Project would be particularly valuable for busy parents wanting to gain more clarity and focus for themselves and their family.

Recently, I’ve found myself having trouble coping emotionally with changes brought on by covid and other life events. At times, I’ve found myself rather down and even despairing.  

I don’t like to talk to anyone about myself which has meant I’ve not sought help from a healthcare professional when sometimes I would have benefited from it. 

In the privacy and safety of my own home, at my own pace, I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to read “The Slow Life Project”.  The book not only validates how I’m feeling and thinking, it also shows me that I’m not alone and also gives me tools on how to slowly work on these things myself.  This is exactly what I needed as I can’t for the foreseeable future book in to talk to anyone, so this book means I’ve received help and guidance now, instead of continuing on as I was.
