Summary

Learn how to be happier with less, declutter, and simplify your life TODAY!

A 'minimalist' guide that will give you more peace of mind and freedom.

This audiobook has lots of actionable information on how to simplify your life by embracing minimalism.

"Simplicity, clarity, singleness: These are the attributes that give our lives power and vividness and joy as they are also the marks of great art." (Richard Holloway)

When Holloway uttered these words, he may as well have been talking about minimalism. Minimalism is the art of living a more fulfilling life with only the things you need. It is about having less mental, emotional, and physical clutter, negative thoughts patterns and ‘busyness’, while having more time and space for things that really matter to you.

The underlying idea or concept seems easy. However, living a minimal life is hard especially in our modern society where having more is the ‘in’ thing.

In the world we live in, we barely have time to pay attention to what we need. As a result, we have lost touch with ourselves and in the process, lost our values. This has created a void within us; a void we try to close with more stuff, more activities, and more company.

Minimalism is a way to return to consciousness of choices and start living with intention. By adopting minimalism, you will live a more rewarding life.

If you do not know where to start, you do not need to rake your brain anymore. This audiobook is the ultimate minimalism guide and the only audiobook you need to learn what minimalism is and how to integrate it into your life!

People who practice minimalism experience clarity, peace of mind, stronger relationships, and true lasting happiness. You too can experience the amazing benefits of becoming a minimalist by taking action and getting the audiobook today!

A great audible for the minimalist's library card!

I recommend this audible for those considering minimalism in any aspect of their life, whether it's to cut out some stress or just clear their mind and realize we all heard something, even if it's minimal furniture to maximize their living space.

Great Direction

This audible helped me to focus on the process. I knew I wanted to declutter and downsize, but didn't have a system, in mind or know where to start without being overwhelmed.

Great Audible

This was the most motivational audible I have to listen. I was downsizing and de-cluttering before I finished the audible. As the audible says, your family will follow - and they have!

Beautifully written

Beautifully written. While there are good tips about how to remove the stuff, I think this audible is especially suited to getting your mindset right before even starting such an effort.

Changed my life!

People who bash minimalism don’t understand what it is. It’s not about living with as few possessions as possible, rather, it’s living with just what you need to be happy and nothing more.

Declutter

I love the fact this audible takes me from room to room and shows me what I need to do. I'm one who needs more space to hold everyone s clutter.

Looking forward to implementing this

I love the concept of minimalism, but practically speaking it is difficult to implement. Over the years I have built up so much stuff that it's hard to get a jump start on things... or even feel like I'm making progress. I'm looking forward to the room by room concept of this audible to help me actually make visible progress.

Good

Olivia encourages you to step back and discern what matters most to you and to your family, and she provides helpful strategies for navigating and simplifying common stress-inducing areas of life management, such as meal planning, finances, relationships, and tackling overwhelming amounts of stuff. I found her words to be validating and supportive; the book is a gem.

Great Book

It has made me realize how important my three core values are in all aspects of my life and integrating those into every aspect of my life as well as my family's life has been truly awesome. I have followed Olivia for quite sometime and this is truly another amazing addition to what she already does on a daily basis.

Awesome

I loved this book! I started my minimalist journey last year and have slowly learned more and more. This book really dives into ALL the ways minimalism can impact your life. I also never thought of it in terms of my values.

Five Stars

Olivia has provided great insight and inspiration on how to change your mindset and create a true lifestyle change. This is not a list of all the things you should keep and get rid of. It's about making a true change and not just following some fad.

It is presented in a simple, profound, and incredibly organized way so it’s easy to read and reflect on how to make practical changes in your life. I could not stop reading, and I loved sharing all the practical tidbits with my husband!

I LOVE this book. It is about so much more than minimizing your possessions. This is about being mindful and thoughtful in all areas of your life.

This One Is The Best

I've read dozens of books on the subject (primarily the Kondo bible) so I was surprised to see how helpful this book was to someone who thought she'd heard it all.
