Are you ready to have a simpler, cleaner and richer life? Don’t you feel overwhelmed with all the STUFF that has collected around you? Don’t you wish you had more time, energy and money, to do the things and activities you love? Then you are ready to be a Minimalist! The Minimalist Lifestyle has been the source of interest in the last decade or so because of the benefits it provides to people who follow it. It is a lifestyle that is free of encumbrances of the consumerist mentality that affects many people. It is about living a simpler lifestyle that will allow you to build stronger relationships and follow your passions. Here is a chance for you to get rid of all the things that are clogging up your life, finances and home and keeping you from living a fulfilling life.

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.

  1. I may have to check this out. I’m trying to get my stuff organized and get rid of all the baggage in my life so I won’t be so stressed out all the time.

  2. I know a lot of this is common sense but I need to be reminded to clear the clutter from my life so I can enjoy what really matters. Spending time looking for things or storing junk is not productive. I could really improve in this area and this would be a good book to help me do that.

  3. I really need this. I don’t like how busy and “cluttered” my life is. I would love to pass this on to my kids!
