From Decision to Downsized: The 6 Week Plan to Your NEXTadventure™

Installment 1 in From Decision to Downsized: The 6 Week Plan to Your NEXTadventure™

Boomers and GenXers can agree on at least one thing: there’s a lot to love about the idea of downsizing. When the trappings of childcare or the pressure to maintain a big home start to feel like something you did in your glory days, well… it may be time to seek a different kind of glory. One that requires less dedication to yard work, upkeep, and major fixes. One that leaves time for creative endeavors, outdoor living, and socializing.

Many of us hover too long in indecision to make a significant downsize happen. Year after year, we wonder what life would be like if we didn’t have so much stuff and square footage. It seems like the only thing holding us back from leaping into life’s NEXTadventure™ is a fear of the downsizing endeavor. It is a huge project to take on. Add that to an already busy and hectic lifestyle and it’s no wonder people get stuck holding on to something that doesn’t fit them anymore.

No one should miss out on an opportunity to create his/her own NEXTadventure™. Imagine the joy of waking up in a new home. Get excited about all of the new technology upgrades that are available and easy on the pocketbook. Manifest the peace of mind that comes from a thoughtful home layout, loaded with storage and friendly design elements. Start dreaming about outdoor/indoor living that feels great in mind, body, and spirit.

This easy-to-follow guide serves as a roadmap to the serenity of downsizing into a fabulous new home. We help you tackle the most daunting of tasks by breaking them down into bite-sized pieces. An overview of the experience helps to set your expectations for navigating with grit and determination to the finish line. Handy checklists get you through your to-do list with speed and know-how. And a holistic approach to taking care of yourself while you negotiate one of life’s biggest changes. When you’re done, you’ll be rewarded with a stage set to live your best life.

Why bother? The thrill of your NEXTadventure™ is just on the other side of this article.
