The Well Life by Briana and Dr. Peter Borten (A Book Review)

Are you looking for a way to achieve a new normal in 2017 for your work and personal life? The Well Life: How to Use Structure, Sweetness, and Space to Create Balance, Happiness, and Peace by Briana and Dr. Peter Borten is where you should start.


The Well Life was recently released this month by the Bortens, who founded The Dragontree, a wellness organization with holistic spas in Portland and Boulder, online courses, natural body care products, and resources for vibrant living. Briana and Dr. Peter Borten have written a book with the strategies needed to achieve balance in your life even when times are tough.


The Bortens focus on three fundamental principles:

  • 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 applying these principles to your life, you will be able to release the stress and tension that gets in the way of being happy, authentic, and fully present—living The Well Life. I, for one, am all about space. Now I just need to work on sweetness and structure.
