Summary

The American way of life is imbued with an evident culture of consumerism and overconsumption. The American Dream has been linked to worldly attitudes and the belief that riches equals happiness. Growing trends in minimalism and the pursuit of happiness, on the other hand, are gaining traction and bringing to light issues such as overconsumption, the physical and mental impacts of clutter, and what actually brings joy.

Increasing distractions in everyday life detract from our ability to pay attention and divert our attention from the events that genuinely count. Mindfulness has been shown in the past to be a helpful approach for reducing the deluge of worthless or damaging information. Individuals seeking increased wellbeing may also benefit from decluttering, according to anecdotal evidence.

Is it possible that decluttering, like mindfulness, might increase overall happiness, tranquillity, and mental clarity? Is it true that decluttering boosts confidence, productivity, and relationship happiness? Is it true that decluttering lessens the value of material belongings and feelings of being overwhelmed by "stuff"? In this book, you will find all the answers you are looking for.
