A Minimalist Life is a beginner’s handbook to minimalism. It teaches readers that minimalism is not just a series of actions but also a total mindset shift. It recognizes that modern day abundance has not increased our level of happiness—in fact we are less happy than generations before despite having more—and it argues that embracing less will allow us to live more fully. The author gives us the tools to achieve this complete life-changing mental shift, teaching us how to search for items and thoughts that add value to our lives and how to get rid of non-essential physical and mental clutter. The holistic book marries minimalist philosophy with practical tips, activities, and action points, such as crafting a minimalist budget, reducing possessions, decluttering space, and clearing the mind of negative emotions.
