Is your life filled with valueless objects that don’t make you happy? Do you feel anxious when you buy things but you can’t control the urge? Would you like to let go of unimportant stuff with a peace of mind?

Your happiness costs less than you think. You deserve a stress-free life - where the things you own serve you and help you live a well-balanced life.

Learn how to let go of everything that is not important in your life and find methods that give you a peace of mind and happiness instead.

Keep balance at the edge of minimalism and consumerism. Try this if:

A Good Introduction to the Concepts of Minimalism
I've been going through a bit of a self-evaluation recently where I'm trying hard to declutter my life. Starting with my phone and reducing distractions and time-wasting apps there I've now moved on to how to declutter my life in general.

Well, my house and workspace anyway. This was a good introduction to some of what I assume are the cornerstones of good minimalism techniques. At just shy of two hours, the book packs in a lot of starter knowledge, I'll likely use as I explorer other areas to downsize the excess clutter in my life.

The narrator, Anna Doyle, sounded like she was rushing through it. The pace never really let up, and I feel that had she slowed just a fraction this would have made this a much more relaxing book to listen too.

This, along with the subtle background noises peppered throughout the narration resulted in a somewhat distracting result.

Is this the best book ever written on minimalism? Probably not, but it served as a useful introduction to the core concepts. Some of what was in it felt more like padding than background to explaining concepts, but overall I'm satisfied I got out of it what I wanted, plus further avenues to explore.
