Tanizaki confronts the same problem that we are now—that the world feels big and confusing and loud and too bright. At age 30 these best friends both walked away from their six-figure corporate careers to try and eliminate excess to focus on the important things in life, namely health, relationships, passion, growth, and social contribution. Instead it uses Millburn and Nicodemus’ anecdotal examples to provide a sample 21 day journey to “strip away the superfluous so we can focus on what’s important”.

So these artists were literally influenced by Japanese culture, and adopting its ideas as they understood it. Mostly the book focuses on the notions that underpin Minimalism: that of focusing your time, money, and energy only on the things that matter and of letting the rest go. For example, there’s advice on how to properly fold your clothes so they don’t take up too much space, and even how to fold your socks!Each tool in this book is effective and simple, taking you a step closer to creating a safer environment for you and others around you.

Despite the title, there’s not a tremendous amount of information about Minimalism as a philosophy, nor are there chapters on how to tidy your cupboards, fold your shirts, or reduce your clothing cupboard to a certain number of monotone items (though there are plenty of other guides or online information to assist with that). A great way to examine the minimalist lifestyle while also making your space one that you feel comfortable and happy in. I always find it helpful to see just how many forms Minimalism can take for different people, but similarly you can see the overwhelmingly positive impact it has for everyone despite their differing experiences. Because I don’t know that it connects; I don’t know that each person has been influenced by the previous person in the way that you might think of with liberalism, or political humanism. I like this book because it is honest, inspiring, and a must-read for anyone looking to lead a happy and content life.Niequist advocates for readers to focus on one thing at a time and teaches about genuine rest and simplicity in the process. Let’s move to your first book recommendation on minimalism: this is the 1933 essay In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki. Minimalism becomes appealing to many people at certain moments—when there’s a lot of societal upheaval or a chaotic political moment, any kind of chaos.

The author, Sterling, shows readers how to navigate consumerism and materialism while staying true to their faith. It was around the halfway point that I felt that I had already gleaned all the useful things I needed from this book.Millburn and Nicodemus used their own discontent as a springboard to identifying the things that were ‘anchoring’ them or holding them back from finding meaning in their lives. Then you should go take the 30-Day Minimalism Challenge and start decluttering a happier, wealthier, healthier you! I do like thinking about it as a philosophy, because I think ‘philosophy’ can encompass all those things. Sasaki credits his minimalist lifestyle with helping him lose weight, become extroverted and proactive, and above all, feel happy and grateful for what he has. If you are ready to clean less, worry less, and have less stress in your life, Joshua Becker is ready to help you.
