The Well Life

How to Use Structure, Sweetness, and Space to Create Balance, Happiness, and Peace

About The Book

Three simple principles for creating a balanced and satisfying life!

The secret to living an exceptional life—with fulfilling work and leisure, meaningful relationships, and time for oneself—is finding balance. Briana and Dr. Peter Borten have the strategies you need to achieve this all-important balance in your life—even in the face of chaos.

The Bortens focus on three fundamental principles of a satisfying life:

-Sweetness: Learn the importance of feeding your life, body, and soul
-Structure: Find out how intelligent structure can give you more spontaneity and freedom, and liberate you from an excessively busy existence
-Space: Carve out purposeful space, which allows for perspective—an understanding of the big picture and your place in it

By adding and maintaining sweetness, structure, and space to your life, you will be able to let go of the stress and tension that gets in the way of being happy, authentic, and fully present—living The Well Life.

"The Well Life is a beautiful guide to living the good life, mind, body, and soul from two people who walk the walk. Peter and Briana Borten integrate knowledge of ancient healing traditions, the realities of our modern lives, and their own practical experience to unlock what it truly means to be well. This book is a healing journey." —Kate Northrup, Bestselling Author of Money: A Love Story

"The Well Life is a powerful primer on living as we were intended to live--under grace, all systems go, and in love. A great platform for living deliberately and creating consciously." —Mike Dooley, New York Times Bestselling Author of Infinite Possibilities

"If you're looking to break out of the excuses and experience more vitality than ever before, read this book! With their background in Eastern medicine and love of Western strategy, Briana and Peter lay out a beautiful prescription for more ease, joy, balance, and fulfillment in The Well Life.

“Sometimes, it can feel like the best thing to do is to speed up and tune out … but this is precisely what Briana and Dr. Peter Borten embrace and teach in their new book, The Well Life. The duo comprehensively presents the foundations of their beliefs about how to live a less encumbered and inhibited life.”

– Portland Monthly

“The authors ground their prescription for a life well-lived in such standard pillars of health as proper nutrition and sleep habits and the crucial assets of energy, confidence and community before moving onto life’s bigger questions … .Such questions aren’t easy to answer. But the point of The Well Life … is that your ability to find happiness and meaning in life depend on how you respond to them."
