About Janet Luhrs
Wanted to simplify your life to enjoy it more, but lacked the knowledge or expertise to make it happen? Janet Luhrs is a long-time lover of simplicity, and now works to help others get a simple life, too! She started a Simple Living newsletter years ago, to share what she was learning with whoever wanted to read it. It soon caught the attention of Oprah, The New York Times, Time, World News Tonight and many others. Simple living was becoming a big thing. She was asked to write a book about it, which became The Simple Living Guide. After a break from writing about the simple life, Janet is back at it with her 8-week Simplify Your Life class and blog at www.simpleliving.com. Enjoy her posts about Seriously Simple Fitness here, with Fit After Fifty!
