Karin Kiser, founder of Radical Simplicity, is proud to announce the release of her new book Lighten Your Load: 35 Surprisingly Simple Ways to Free Yourself from Stress, Toxins and Clutter.

A former corporate executive and Pilates studio owner, Kiser is on a mission to help people live lives of joy, radiant health and sustainability, for themselves and for the planet.

Kiser states, “The American Psychological Association recently revealed that more than 75 percent of Americans experience at least one symptom of stress per month. The American Institute of Stress also reports that nearly half of Americans feel more stressed than they did five years ago. With these numbers only set to grow a solution is needed, now more than ever. The daily stress and toxins the average person is exposed to are overloading their bodies, minds and the environment.”

Kiser’s book offers readers immediate action steps to decrease the negative impacts of stress on their body, emotions and environment. Each of the 35 strategies is a simple shift that leads to more time, greater health, increased energy and ease. “The cause of stress is not personal relationships, jobs, finances or any other external factor. Instead, the root cause is what people feed their bodies and their minds in the form of food, thoughts—even cleaning products and cosmetics,” she says. “Stress is caused by environmental, psychological, emotional and physical factors that build up over time. Everything from the beauty products in the medicine cabinet, to the processed foods in the pantry—even the movies people watch all have a massive impact on health, wellness and happiness.”

The good news, according to Kiser, is that with some simple changes anyone can lighten their load of stress, anxiety and overwhelm, leaving them feeling lighter, happier and at peace with the world.
