WELCOME TO SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHTER

A powerful methodology born out of the real-life weight-loss struggles of many.

Most of us don't want to spend our days counting calories, tracking points, or feeling guilty because we're not. There are many weight-loss approaches, but most are too restrictive, create FOMO—fear of missing outand don't take into account our humanness. 

Through principles of functional nutrition, cognitive behavior and minimalism, we work with your nature instead of against it. At School of Living Lighter, we address the clutter—in your mind, body and home—so that you can become your lightest self yet. Get ready to enjoy more of the things you love and less of the things you don't!

 Key Focus Areas:

Mind Clutter

This manifests as the negative thoughts that are weighing you down. Maybe you believe that you're too much or not enough. Or you spend a lot of time ruminating about your interactions with others. Regardless, mind clutter incessantly tells you that you deserve the extra wine and cake until you succumb.

Body Clutter

This is what you put in and on your body that doesn’t do you any favors. Maybe you’re mindlessly consuming too many empty calories, sitting at a desk all day, or using un-clean beauty products. Body clutter becomes excess pounds that get between you and the life you want to live. 

Home Clutter 

This looks like an uncomfortable amount of stuff—like a closet that’s bursting with clothes or countertops that never get cleaned. Home clutter represents all of the distractions in which you looked for happiness and didn’t find it. The clutter in your home doesn’t just make a mess; it creates sensory overload and stress in your life.

HI THERE, I'M HEATHER AARDEMA.

As a former ad executive, I spent two decades convincing people that they needed to purchase the latest thing in order to be happy. And for most of that time, I believed it.

Struggling to find deeper meaning in my job towards the end of my career, I pulled out the credit card constantly telling myself "I deserved it" ("it" was usually chocolate, alcohol and Target shopping sprees) since I "had" to do work that was no longer fulfilling. Life felt complicated and chaotic

Then, I discovered minimalism—the intentional pursuit of what matters most (and ignoring all the excess). I felt myself getting lighter by the day. I walked away from corporate to pursue my dream of helping other women tackle their clutter, un-complicate their lives, and lose weight for good. And with that, School of Living Lighter was born.

Clutter isn’t just the stuff in your closet. It’s anything that gets between you and the life that you want to be living.

Hear From Women Who Are Living Lighter:

Zanna

I was miserable in my own body. I had tried to lose weight for 6 months and ended up gaining weight instead. After 5 babies I wanted to feel limber, energetic, and sexy, and I wanted my favorite athletics back in my life. Heather helped me see that was all possible. I’m down 30 pounds and 5 inches at my belly button and 4.5 inches at my love handles.

Gini

Heather has a way of shining light on the areas that trouble you and she leads you to higher ground where being YOU is such a joy. Working with Heather my weight began to drop, opportunities came my way, I began a new field of study professionally, and the love of my life appeared. Basically, my life flipped. I've released 50 lbs now. I have also lowered my blood glucose (HbA1c), lowered my cholesterol, normalized my triglycerides, and dropped several sizes.”

Kristina

Heather sees the best in you and reflects it back out into the world so that you can eventually see yourself the way that she does. Over our time together, I started to find myself perfect too, and in doing so, my confidence and love for myself soared. While I did lose well over 10 pounds, I had a breakthrough around who I am and what I want in life.
