Do Less by Rachel Jonat: A Must Read Book for the New Year

Do Less by Rachel Jonat is a book you need to read. This year is the year that many people have decided they are going to do less. Sometimes I think that society pushes us to constantly do more, push harder, and be more productive. While those can be good things, they can also be overwhelming if you don’t know how to set boundaries and slow down. I need a breather this year. I cannot continue to push harder and harder and not burn out. If you feel the same way, you may want to consider this book.

Do Less by Rachel Jonat

I’ve always been fascinated by living simply. Imagine getting rid of all the clutter and things you never use. Imagine keeping only what truly brings joy to you in your home.  I’d love to have less surfaces to dust and less things to dust around.  Taking it a step further, can you imagine how much less stressful your day would be if you managed to eliminate your commitments to only those that were truly necessary? What if you could work less hours and do more of what you loved instead?

Do Less: A minimalist guide to a simplified, organized and happy life will show you how to finally live an intentional, meaningful life. Rachel Jonat is not only an author, she is a blogger. You can visit her blog at The Minimalist Mom where she will teach you how to lead a rich life with less stuff. Do Less will explain to you what minimalism is and why you need it.  You’ll learn why a lot of the stress we have in our lives today is because of our busyness and collection of “things” we don’t need. She’ll teach you how to recognize impulse shopping to feel better or relax versus buying things that you really need. You will learn how to say no even though you are constantly bombarded by bigger and better things and she’ll teach you the steps you need to get to a simpler life.

I honestly think I am in love with this book. It’s what I have been searching for. I find that I’m more unhappy with the way my home looks as I search Pinterest for inspiration. After all, I need a new entertainment center and I know my bedroom would instantly look better if I just bought those new curtains. At last count, we had over 75 DVD’s between the four of us and they are never organized or neat looking.  Do I need a DVD holder or do I just need fewer DVDs?

Do Less by Rachel Jonat is definitely the book you need if you’re ready to pare down your possessions and free your time. I’ve already started!

  1. I’ve been interested in the minimalist lifestyle from the first time I heard about it. I’m pretty much the opposite right now. I have things around “just in case” I’d be interested to hear how about people with bigger families living that lifestyle

  2. Okay I have to admit I would probably love this book. I so need something to kick me in my butt on this. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I hear you on the DVDs. I use mine and think I could part with only a few, so I must think of a better storage solution. A controlled mess is what’s going on now, lol, but I can find anyone I want. I do like minimalist books for motivation.

  4. I was a diehard harder well maybe harder is a bit much but collector of things when I was uounger. Now I’m happy uo say I’m a minimalist. The few things I have that require dusting are kept in an enclosed cabinet which saves me dust time.

  5. I’m not going to lie, I don’t have much time to read, but I seriously need to make time to read this book. I constantly feel like I make too many commitments and have too much stuff, but don’t know where to start simplifying.
