Publisher's Summary

Is your life cluttered, overly-busy, and filled with time-consuming chores that don’t make you happy? Adopting a minimalist approach to your life will change the way you live it!

In today’s consumer-driven society, "things" have replaced people. We work hard to possess the very things that consume our time, and make our lives feel empty and meaningless. Another way exists, that focuses on eliminating the physical, mental, and emotional clutter in your average day.

In Minimalism, I’ll take you through a total overhaul of your current lifestyle, habits, and mindset. You will discover that by switching to minimalism, you’ll make room for the things in life you’ve been missing - love, family, free time, and reconnecting with who you are, and what you want.

In this book, you’ll discover:

  • The main reasons why people switch to a minimalist lifestyle
  • How to declutter your space like a minimalist pro
  • Where to start when decluttering your social life
  • Applying minimalism to your finances for better results
  • How minimalism impacts your mind and becomes a core habit
  • The main lessons that minimalism teaches us about a happy life

It’s been a long time since you reassessed what you do, and what you have. Minimalism will free you from the endless barrage of wanting, FOMO, and inadequacy the consumerist system inspires.

You have the power to change how you live your life. Bring it all back to what matters and throw away the rest! Return to a simpler, happier way of enjoying how you live. 

Discover the practice of minimalism with this step-by-step guide. Buy it now to learn how!

Chapter 1 Excerpt "Minimalism: Beginners Guide to Minimalism "

What Is Minimalism?

Minimalism is the processes of scaling back from having too much to having just enough. People take on minimalism because they want freedom from things in their lives. Be it material possessions, toxic relationships, or mental clutter; minimalism has become the go-to lifestyle for more millennials today. It is not a lifestyle that caters for the youth; any person despite the age can adopt the practice in their life. Even if minimalism advocates for having fewer things, that doesn’t mean that material possession is bad. The idea here is to have the things that one needs and appreciates in their life today. Keeping things that no longer serve you or buying stuff because of a scarcity mentality is highly discouraged.

The reason this lifestyle is gaining popularity is that more and more people are starting to realize the value we attach to items. The fact that most of us cannot separate our memories and emotions from material things is alarming. The amount of consumerism in the world is also at an all-time high.

Beginners Guide to Minimalism

I realized through this book that minimalism can leave a positive impact on your mind. As soon as you free yourself from the chains of emotions bound to your clutter, you can instantly feel its worthlessness. You will give more importance to the people around to and in return, you will become a happier person too!

I rate this book 5 stars!

This book guides you to live with only the most essential things in life; the things that you really can’t survive without. Minimalism isn’t that simple to follow, as letting go of certain things can be very challenging for some people, but it’s not impossible to change yourself. Start from today. I rate this book 5 stars!

My journey hasn’t been easy, but it’s going well.

I feel like minimalism has brought me closer to my family. Ever since I have listened to this book, I have cut down my wardrobe and have kept only the most essential clothing. I have also decided to get rid of the cable and enjoy Netflix with my family instead. My journey hasn’t been easy, but it’s going well.

I purchased this book after watching on netflix.

I purchased this book after watching their documentary on Netflix. The experience of learning about their philosophies came at a time in my life when I have been feeling very lost and empty, feeling that I need to make some major changes. The minimalist philosophy was exactly what I needed and I am excited about the prospect of moving forward from here to improve my life & the lives of others!!

For beginners. Bellow basic

Basic. Did not enjoy. Tell me something I don't know. This book was lower than beginners. I learned nothing new. Maybe it's good for a 19 yr old who has no clue about life. Don't waste your time there are better books for your time.

The idea of minimalism means living for yourself

If you want to start a life of simplicity, you need to get this book today. This has honestly made such a significant impact on me. I now realize the value of life which we only live to collect stuff. We don’t even make use of most of it and it just gets passed on to the next generation. The idea of minimalism means living for yourself and spending on the items that you really need. It’s such a relaxing approach to life!

If you are a Minimalist you don't need this book.

This book adds nothing new that most prople already know, save your money.

Reviews have to be at least 15 words long so as a mimimalist I cannot minimal in my review.
