Minimalism | A Guide to Living a Simpler, Happier and Meaningful Life
Minimalism is loosely defined (by me) as living a simpler life with less stuff. It’s working less and having less but enjoying more. It’s something I’ve been working on for the past few months because I’m overwhelmed by all the stuff in my life and the demands that makes on me. With any new endeavor, I find myself reading books to figure out the best way to approach it. When I found Minimalism: A Guide to Living a Simpler, Happier and Meaningful Life for free on Amazon, I decided this was a great place to find inspiration.
Minimalism: A Guide to Living a Simpler, Happier and Meaningful Life is a short ebook at only 52 pages but it’s loaded with helpful tips. I learned that minimalism is more than just clear table tops and a lack of nic nacs. It’s about learning how to live a better life that is more fulfilling because you aren’t chasing after the Joneses any longer. It’s not a dreamers guide to minimalism. It’s very realistic and discusses some of the pros and cons of changing your lifestyle.
The book doesn’t tell you the steps you need to take to become a minimalist. Instead, it presents scenarios so you can see what needs to be done in your life. We are all coming from different places and our homes and lives have different amounts of stuff. We all have different reasons for being attracted to minimalism so the path we take will be different. There is a handy home detox section that will inspire you in each room of your home.
While there are several typos in the book, If you’re working toward minimalism, it’s definitely still worth reading and I found quite inspiring.
