Fact: In today's world living simply takes work and a strong sense of what we truly want. It's harder nowadays to be a minimalist than a trend-setting maximalist (if that's even a thing). Having said that, those obstacles don't stop people (including myself) to resist the hype and just find joy in the simpler things. 'After all, we are more than the sum of our possessions, we are more than white-tiled walls'.
So below are 10 of my favourite books that I read and hope to read soon - all about living with less, living simply, joyfully, naturally, happily and imperfectly...
"Simple Matters" by Erin Boyle - "The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own" by Joshua Becker - "Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less" by Greg McKeown - "Spark Joy" by Marie Kondo - "Present Over Perfect" by Shauna Niequist - "The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck" by Sarah Knight
"Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World" by Emily P. Freeman - "The Joy of Less" by Francine Jay - "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" also by Marie Kondo - "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference" by Malcolm Gladwell.
