Can you remember the last time you enjoyed the sunset, lazy afternoon or a lazy coffee with a friend, without any rush or an urge to do something? When was the last time you told a child, "yes, we have enough time for one more story,”? And then you read it slowly and consciously, or talked to them until they fell asleep, then watched them sleep for a while?
Most of us live in an endless race for achievements, chasing more and more of everything. In that constant rush, we don't take time to enjoy life, which passes by. What we need is to slow down and make things simpler. We need to reexamine, organize and declutter everything in our lives - from our home to our habits to our company to work to hobbies - everything. We need to purge and declutter mind, declutter stuff, declutter your home, find out what is serving us, and toss away everything else.
We aren’t saying that you don't need to work, or that you don't have a lot of tasks to finish. We don't suggest you give up everything and move to a beach far, far away, to simply fish and swim all day every day for the rest of your life (although that's one amazing idea). In this self-development book, we are talking about simplicity in life as a way to find more fulfillment and achieve authentic happiness.
We offer you 30 principles (ways) to apply simplicity to our lives, and you will make more time and space for what really matters.

At the same time, you will release stress and many distractions. This guide to minimalism book will bring you more peace of mind, better focus, and more joy.
