Thriving On Less

thriving-on-less-1

Every now and then I read some articles on zenhabits.net. The writer, Leo, has a lot of really great, practical advice for simplifying life, being frugal, and making time (and room!) for what’s important in your life. He recently published a free eBook, Thriving On Less. It’s only about 20 pages and is full of tips that make so much sense that a person just needs to be reminded of now and then. I recommend you read it to help you focus on what’s important to you as we head into a new year. “The first step in simplifying, and living with less, is to identify the essential – that which you want to keep in your life. Then eliminate as much of the non-essential as possible.” He suggests making a short list of 4-5 things that you value most – these are your essentials. For me it was growing my relationship with God, time with family, managing our home well, photography, and being physically well. Then you can start simplifying your life based on your essentials. Start clearing away the things that are not important to you to make room and time for the things that are important. It’s such a *duh* simple thing really, but sometimes it takes hearing it to realize how important it is. Download the book here and check out what else he has to say :)

    i tried the link but it didn’t work. this is totally something that i would be interested in checking out. i didn’t even know there was a book like this that existed. it’s a thought i had for the new year, to try to simplify life. to eliminate the clutter, and useless stuff that we have lying around in our house and in life. i will definitely be looking into this! thanks for the referral.

    Hey everyone, if you’d like to read Thriving On Less and the download link doesn’t work for you just give me your email address and I can send you the pdf. Maybe when you’re writing your email address type AT with a space instead of @ to avoid spammers that might look for addresses to send to.
