Courtney Carver shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives.
We are often on a quest for more—we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent.
In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less—more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what’s most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.
What I Say:
It was really interesting to see how Courtney has simplified her life to live with MS. What I loved about the book was that it was so applicable to anyone which is the beauty of teaching healing to others who may not know what MS is, it’s not even on their radar but the call to simplify life is. In the process, she’s doing amazing proactive healthcare work in the world and I love that!
I’m inspired to try her 333 wardrobe challenge and declutter a little bit more. We’ve been doing so since we “moved” back into our house after a renovation in 2017. We had boxed up so many things and when we started unpacking we made hard decisions on consolidating our possessions between the two of us and got rid of so many things. But we can always declutter more and I’m excited to do that during this “Spring Cleaning” time fo the year.
