Minimalism comes in many forms, and some practices you may already be familiar with, such as Feng Shui, tiny living, or downsizing. While minimalism has become increasingly popular over the last few years, there is much about the lifestyle that is often misunderstood and even unacknowledged. While the foundation of the lifestyle is based on simplifying your living space there is much more to minimalism than clearing out space in your closet.
Minimalism is a way of life that improves your quality of life, while also enhancing your mental state, relationships, financial state, and surrounding environment. By implementing minimalist values into your life, you can experience newfound freedom and opportunities that are often unavailable with a materialistic lifestyle. This book contains proven strategies and techniques on how to efficiently and effectively transition into the minimalist lifestyle, as well as methods for decluttering your home, reevaluating your goals, and how to use minimalism to achieve your dreams and live the life you truly desire.
A widely acknowledged truth among the minimalist community is that materialism has completely consumed the mindset of the general population so that we are in a constant state of wanting or needing more unnecessary items. Corporations have reinvented commercialism to target your insecurities and desire to feel fulfilled by selling objects that only grant instant gratification, rather than true contentment or change. This book will open your mind to a world with entirely new possibilities and open doors that are impossible to take advantage of in a life that is centered around what you own. The foundational values of minimalism are focused on improving your overall quality of life through reevaluating your spending habits, relationships, state of mind, and instinct to consume needlessly.
