Book Description

Minimalism: How To Declutter, De-Stress And Simplify Your Life With Simple Living



Today, a growing number of people are becoming dissatisfied with their lives and turning to simpler ways of working, living and raising their children.

This book will explore the philosophy of minimalism and how it can streamline your life, declutter your home, reduce stress, mindless consumerism, and reconnect you to what’s truly important. You’ll find ways to adopt a mindset that promotes simplicity and elegance in your every day life, and rethink your dependence on material possessions. We will explore how practical changes to our surroundings can lead to a previously unknown inner peace and calm. Whether in our wardrobes, kitchens, work lives or our deeper sense of personal and spiritual purpose, we could all do with focusing on things that align with our values and reducing the distraction of those things that pull us away from them. This book shows you how.

For those born and raised in the height of our consumer society, the idea that happiness and personal fulfillment is found in stuff is more or less a given. The capitalist machine we all live within requires only one thing of us: that we should constantly want, and the things we should want are to be found, usually, in malls. Malls that are filled with strategically placed advertising, with the sole purpose to entice and lure you, trying to convince you that you need, not want, their specific product. Our economy relies heavily on a steady stream of consumption: better clothes, cars, bigger houses and things to fill those houses with, the newest appliances, Christmas decorations, pet toys, jewelry, office furniture, pot plants, gaming consoles, specialty tires, luxury soaps… the array of stuff is simply dazzling.

But if you are reading this there’s a chance you find this overabundance just a little… exhausting. Paradoxically, there seems to be a sad sort of emptiness in filling up one’s life with more things. What is simple and truly valuable often seems to be completely hidden under mountains of what is unnecessary. Although advertising tells us the best way to solve problems is to buy solutions, tranquility and a graceful life seem to elude us, no matter what we buy or how much of it.

Minimalism is an aesthetic, a philosophy and a way of life. This book takes a look at how deeply liberating a simpler life can be, and shows you ways you can adopt a calmer, more deliberate way of living and working. Minimalism is about clearing away the clutter that is distracting from what is really important. It’s about rethinking our attitudes to ownership, to our lifestyles and to our innermost values.

About the Author

Hi there! My name is Simeon and I'm a poet and a philosopher at heart, a health and fitness enthusiast by habit, a daredevil by choice, and a adrenaline junkie for life. I have a profound interest in the areas of personal and spiritual development, a deep longing for serenity, simplicity and numberless wealth, an unyielding belief in the goodness of all human beings, and an ever-growing ambition for all of us to be able to reach the height of our true potential and fully realize the dreams and visions that we have envisioned for ourselves. Some of my academic endeavors encompass the following: cognitive neuroscience, applied positive psychology, sports and exercise science, and evidence-based psychological coaching. I currently work as a life coach and health counselor with people who want to make realistic, autonomous, and lifelong changes in various areas of their lives. Above all, what I truly desire is to be a positive influence in other people's lives. So if I have played but the smallest part of changing your life for the better, if I have made but one positive impact on you, left you with some new insight, steered you in a new direction, or helped you take that next step on your journey, I will be more than satisfied. I'd like to share a short story I heard once, a few words by Les Brown which have had a profound impact on me when it comes to living life to the fullest. It goes like this: "The wealthiest place on earth is not the goldmines of the earth. No, the wealthiest place on earth is the graveyard. Because here you'll find an endless array of hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, books that were never written, songs that were never sung, inventions that were never shared, cures that were never discovered, and all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to realize their dream. The question is - if you die today, what ideas, what abilities, what talents, what gifts, what dreams would die with you?" So, if you were to leave here with nothing else, I would want to leave you with this: don't die with your music still in you. There truly is no one else who can sing your song. You are the one. Take care! /Simeon

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good book that deserve your attention!! 1 July 2014
By Antonio
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I read ‘How to Declutter your Life with Simple Living’, I knew that this book was for me…After a brief explanation of what Minimalism is and its history, the Author goes on to explain what it really means to be a Minimalist and the distinctions between being one and being thrifty…I especially found the Chapters on questioning the need for many of the items that we clutter our life with very thought provoking…Making us question the value of what’s real and what’s important' in our lives…
A really good book that deserve your attention!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A reminder of what's really important in life. 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is all about reminding you about life being simple, and it is!

This book does not give you minute advice of what to do about the millions of clothes you need to sort through in your wardrobe, instead, gives a strategic high level focus on doing things properly.

I particularly liked the analogy about the glass of water, so, from now on I will implement that thinking with everything...a nd then aim for calmness!

3.0 out of 5 stars What was I thinking? It's ok BUT.. 31 May 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The courier delivered my thin parcel and I wondered what it was . I had been expecting a book - this is more of a leaflet - not much there, lots of space, large type face. If you have already given any thought to making your lifestyle less cluttered and less complicated, there may be nothing new here for you. At the end of the book is a preview of another book by the same author - so that takes up a few more pages. If you are really starting off on the process of change, you may pick up some ideas... maybe. What is in the book seems reasonable and can be acted upon but that is about as positive as I wish to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book 6 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book. It was full of practical ideas that I could relate to. I recommend it to anyone who wants a bit more calm in their life and could benefit from a little common sense that we all overlook when we are busy
