Simple Book, Simple Message: Do Less, Experience More

Minimalism may be trending right now—cue the all-white Tumblr picture with a gold triangle necklace and succulent plant—but aesthetics aside, it’s a really important aspect of overall well-being. The main misperception about minimalism is that it’s about “having less,” when really, it’s about eliminating what doesn’t matter, thereby letting yourself feel and experience what does. If that seems confusing, or scary, fear not. Alongside Queen Konda exists a book for those not quite on that one-box-living level yet: Do Less: A Minimalist Guide to a Simplified, Organized, and Happy Life lists hundreds of ways to streamline and simplify everything from your clothes to your finances to your anxious thoughts, and is a must-have for the zen-master-to-be.
