The Joy of Minimalism

By

Minimalism and the simple life

It’s natural to love stuff! More than that, it’s natural to love your stuff. That notebook from 8th grade, your Disney VHS’, mismatched socks. They all have sentimental value…and they all take up space. Author and YouTuber, Zoey Arielle, opens up about her struggle with loving all the things in life we bring home. A hoarder in disguise, Arielle has mastered the tools needed to embrace simplicity and the minimalist philosophy.

Minimalism guide: Zoey Arielle Poulsen’s The Joy of Minimalism is the friendly guide you’ve been searching for as you embark on a life of simplicity. Life can stress anyone out. So, by embracing minimalism, you’ll be saying goodbye to stress and everything that you never needed anyway. Discover a greater focus and true freedom as you live your new life with a real sense of gratitude for everything and everyone around you.

Enjoy the simple life: In The Joy of Minimalism Poulsen shows you how to simplify the act of letting go while sharing her personal journey into this calmer sense of life. Beyond offering specific tips on transitioning, she also invites you to journal your new awakening. Minimalism is more than a movement or fad, it’s a sense of happiness and practice that will bring you closer to your true self.

The Joy of Minimalism teaches you to live better with less. You'll learn how to:

  • Rediscover the freedom of owning less
  • Embrace life and all the non-material things the world has to offer

Love Earth Now

By

Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner! 
Merge environmentalism and spirituality─attain a state of eco-mindfulness and sustainable living

What can you do for the environment? Do you find yourself wondering what on Earth you can do about the serious environmental challenges we face today? Do you worry there’s nothing any one person can do that will make a difference? Most people say they would like to do something to make the world a better place, but they just don’t believe they have the time, energy, money or power to do anything that will make a real difference. Are you willing to devote 20 minutes a week to find out? Environmental activist Cheryl Leutjen has the planet’s back and is betting you do too. Her powerful book of inspired ideas and eco-mindfulness calls upon us all to Love Earth Now.

Conservation and sustainable living. Love Earth Now invites us to explore our thoughts and feelings about the waste and negative environment impacts we see daily. Drawing from her experiences as an engineering geologist, environmental law attorney, small shop owner, and mindfulness practitioner, Cheryl also reminds us about the importance of simplicity. All our possessions and constant shopping are no better for us than they are for the planet itself. They contribute to landfills and create a tech-tethered society that is increasingly isolated. Both helpful and hopeful, Love Earth Now is brimming with creative ideas we can all try. Get closer to a sustainable lifestyle, one day at a time.

Practice Eco-mindfulness. Cheryl’s book of planetary self-help and eco-mindfulness is a deeply thoughtful and lucid look at the state of our “big blue marble,” our beautiful earth. It's also a sourcebook of direct actions─large and small─we can all take to ensure our children and their children’s children have a healthy future on this planet.

If you liked reading books such as Vitamin NThe Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, or Braiding Sweetgrass, you'll enjoy the award-winning Love Earth Now.
