The Joy of Minimalism

A Beginner's Guide to Happiness with Less (Compulsive Behavior, Hoarding, Decluttering, Organizing, Affirmations, Simplicity)

By Zoey Arielle Poulsen

Minimalism and the Simple Life

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. 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. 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
  • Master your own personal style for organizing and decluttering
  • Celebrate your new life with a free mind

If you have read hoarding and decluttering books such as Decluttering at the Speed of LifeWhat Your Clutter is Trying to Tell You, or The Clutter Connection, you will love The Joy of Minimalism.

The Strong Black Woman

By

A Health Crisis of Major Proportions Among Black Women Generated from Systemic Racism  

#1 New Release in Reference

Meet Black women who have learned though hard lessons the importance of self-care and how to break through the cultural and sometimes family resistance to seeking therapy and professional mental health care.

The Strong Black Woman Syndrome. For generations, in response to systemic racism, Black women and African American culture created the persona of the Strong Black Woman, a woman who, motivated by service and sacrifice, handles, manages, and overcomes any problem, any obstacle.  The syndrome calls on Black women to be the problem-solvers and chief caretakers for everyone in their lives. Never buckling, never feeling vulnerable, and never bothering with their pain.

Black women face a hidden mental health crisis of anxiety and depression. To be a Black woman in America is to know that you cannot protect your children or guarantee their safety, that your value is consistently questioned, and that even being “twice as good” is often not good enough. Consequently, Black women disproportionately experience anxiety and depression. Studies now conclusively connect racism and mental health―and physical health.

Time to take care of your emotional health. Because you deserve to be emotionally healthy for yourself and those you love. More and more young Black women are re-examining the Strong Black Woman syndrome and engaging in self-care practices that positively change their lives.

In The Strong Black Woman, hear the stories of African American women who:

  • Asked for help when they needed it
  • Built lives that offer healing every day
  • Learned to accept that healing

If you have read The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental HealthThe Racial Healing Handbook, or Black FatigueThe Strong Black Woman should be your next read.
