If you want a change, start searching: for your desired life direction and for people who are on this path and can help you on the way.

Your story

You’re here, so I suppose, your life is changing for better thanks to the information you find on the internet and in books. I just hope you don’t read everything and don’t believe everything and everyone. I hope you know what you want and that you do your research in these areas.

There are blogs, articles, and books. And behind each of them, there is a person. And we love these people, who we know from their writing or videos. They are our companions on our way. Staying in touch with their thoughts or lives can help you by reminding of your goals, values, and reasons.

Below I list best books by authors who I’m following. They write mainly about actions and values from the point of view of

Simplicity and Minimalism.

You can give someone a good book as a present (I’ve gifted three titles about the minimalist lifestyle to my family this December) or start changing your own life.

Greg McKeown

– author of the idea of essentialism.

His book Essentialism is for you if you would like to focus on what’s important and needed rather than on dealing with excess. It touches areas where our energy, time, space and work get consumed, not always necessarily: in relationships, at work, in our schedules and minds. It can be the book with which you start your journey to simpler life. (You can get an idea about what essentialism is by reading this article.)

Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus (The Minimalists)

– authors of TheMinimalists blog, podcast, and the film: Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things.

Essential is a collection of their essays about simplicity and minimalism, values and decluttering. And I must tell you that their writing is on a really high level. Even their blog texts’ style is more of a writer than of a blogger.

And something more personal: Everything That Remains. A deep story about the life shift – becoming a minimalist.
