Inhaltsangabe

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Tired of constantly chasing happiness? Does your life feel cluttered out of control? Enough is enough. It’s about time to reclaim that life that you should be living now!

We work to the point of extreme exhaustion. Everyone is just too rushed, hurried, and stressed. We alleviate our stress by shopping for more stuff, binge eating, and engaging in time-wasting activities. We fill our lives with needless activities, relationships, and clutter. This makes us lose sense of who we really are and what’s important to us. 

This is the reason why the Japanese people have developed a lifestyle that strips away the inessential things in their lives. It’s called minimalism. In this audiobook, you’ll hear proven strategies on how to practice minimalism.

Here are just some of the benefits:

  • You will clear your mind, and get rid of physical clutter, increase your happiness, and improve your life
  • Your personal space will be transformed and organized into a clean and neat place
  • You will save money and also make money from the minimalist lifestyle
  • Much, much more!

Scroll up and buy the audiobook now! Take action and experience the power of minimalism!

A good start - I think very helpful

#declutter; #minimalism;
—————-
Spoilers ahead.

I am only “reading“ audibles/ audiobooks.

Unfortunately I have only listened to one audiobook where audible used chapters with detail informations.
That was Taylor‘s We are Legion (We are Bob).
Yes a scifi novel/ audiobook.

This is no exception. It would be helpful if audible would use chapters with additional infos in the future.
Helpful in non-fiction books.

I liked the book. I am still too messy and my collectible gene is still there... This is my first book of this kind - minimalism/ decluttering/ cleaning/ Danshari/ Ikigai.
I listened to Wiking‘s “Hygge“ which is more like the opposite and I didnt like it at all.
Although the Scandinavian death cleaning (“dö städning“) seems also interesting I cant see anything helpful in hygge, lykke, sisu, lagom, fika, kalsarikännit (“pantsdrunk“). All from the northern European area and all about getting happier.

Coming to minimalism: All you need to know according to this audible:

Chapter 1-3 (= Chapter I)
steps to get you on pass
1. List the current commitments that you may have
2. Set priorities for those responsibilities from most to least essential
3. Eliminit the least essential ones in sequence
4. Start the process every month after the point you are only doing things which give the most value.
5. Say “no“ to things which move you in the direction that you would like to go.
6. Sincerely ask yourself if you honestly need something

term “Danshari“:
Danshari (断捨離), or if you like the art of decluttering, is a Japanese concept that is gaining more and more popularity (although it is about less and less). The term is difficult to translate and it’s composed of three ideograms (断捨離), meaning “refuse”, “dispose” and “separate”. In a conventional sense, it is rendered as “cleaning” or “tidying up”.

Marie Kondō “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying (=Magic Cleaning)“ is mentioned. English & German available.
Very popular book. Also an audible.
Mentionable “Spark Joy“, a new book by Kondō.

“You have succeeded in life when all you really want
is only what you really need.“
Vernon Howard

Chapter 4 (= Chapter II): ...

Chapter 5:
With what to start:
Old Magazins, expired coupons, wallet content, newsletters; creditcards; smartphone (extreme); change your commute pass; plastic bags; social media; eating less & healthier; less liquor; less nicotine; less drugs; less computer games; reduce the todo-list; desktop screen cleaning (icons); less debt; DVDs/ CDs/ books; collections of whatever; shop less & buy online; scan & shred all paperwork; use cloud services; clean your wardrobe; 4-day-work-week (!).

Messys and persons with the socalled collective gene....

A child could have a new toy after decluttering another...

Tell about your experiences & advantages. Don’t advice.

Chapter 6 (= Chapter IV): outfits; btw videos from e.g. Marie Kondō can be found on youtube; ebook reader; books; CDs; DVDs; kitchen; bathroom; car;

Chapter 7&8 (= Chapter V & VI): storage systems; pets

Chapter 9 (= Chapter VII): 50 quick tips:
make an inventory for everything; live in a smaller house; go to an event with one vehicle; rent rather than buy; don’t be too spartan; repurge; discard what you didnt use for the last 12months; eat out less; bicycle; walk; sell your clutter; taking care of business; minimal lifestyle; resist in post-buying; do go shopping hungry; use a thirty day list what to buy;
only keep multi-purpose items; use the library; frugal exercise/ workout; public transportation; try to stay healthy; frugal approaches to give gifts; reduce liquor; quit smoking; drink water; batch to save time; stop the use of the credit card; cancel email subscriptions; stay at home; do things yourself; make your own things; avoid convenience food; travel using frugal means; stop paying interests; cut your own hair; cut phone calls; avoid holiday promotions; maintain things; cut down social media use; plan ahead; est less sugar; cook in advance; wash your clothes less; save on gas; save on groceries;

Chapter 10-12 (= Chapter VIII-X): results; success stories (also in history); conclusion

Chapter 13 (= Chapter XI): interval fasting - advertising for another audiobook (!)

I havent read Marie Kondō The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying-Up (= Magic Cleaning). Btw it is also available as a manga.
“Do it once and get it over with.“

Strange was that 80% (4of5) of the recessions on audible.com were written by listeners who received a free copy for a honest review.

Most popular audibles for this topic:
Minimalism/ Decluttering
• Millburn’s Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life (2011)
• Kondō‘s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying (2011)

Nevertheless I will read these two soon although I don’t think there is something missing in this book.
