Less by Rachel Aust

Less by Rachel Aust

This book is a very unique book to my minimalist book review series. Less: a visual guide to minimalism, was written by the popular minimalist youtuber Rachel Aust. In her book she gives a very unique perspective and a simple visual guide that many new minimalists will find very helpful. You will love her lists and decision charts in this no fluff guide to decluttering and living a simple happy life.

This week try to find something in your life that you can make easier. Maybe its trying to meal prep this weekend so you only have to clean up your kitchen once. Perhaps its having a family meeting and implementing a chore chart. Personally, my favorite thing that simplified my life was a gift from my in-laws for Christmas which with this one change saves me 42 hours a year that I don't have to spend on doing this boring chore.

The only way that you do get better at this art like with most art is by practicing. Minimalism is a lifestyle. Be patient with yourself and don’t expect to get everything done in one day. It took a lifetime to gather everything around you its gonna take some work to undo that.

Simple is beautiful. Simple allows us to breath, think, create, and be free. When we remove all the extra we find out what and who is actually important to us. Once we get rid of all the garbage cluttering our lives we get peace. If we want to achieve our goals this year we must get serious about removing all the extras; the extra stuff, extra (often unnecessary) time commitments, the long to do lists that never seem to end. We just need to take a look at life and put our priorities first. Check in with tomorrows blog post to see just how to do that and to give yourself the credit that you deserve for all the stuff that you continue to get done.

Life is all about balance. Have any of you seen Eat Pray Love? If so you kind of know what I am talking about. Make sure that we aren't running ourselves ragged just for the sake of doing. There is no reward in that except exhaustion and burnout. Put your power and energy behind things that you care about.

Who doesn't want more happiness? It's the journey to the happiness that I hope you are joining me on. Just believe that this minimalism journey is worth it and that the grand prize is happiness, getting your time back, and happy memories that have yet to be created. All of this was acomplished because you let go!

Sometimes we need to stop and count all our blessings. If we have our needs met for food, safety, health, and love we are in a very good place that many people would be envious of. If we are not only content but also grateful we can focus on spreading love and blessings to others.
