The Simple Living Guide

When I first came across this book I couldn't help myself!! The title alone was drawing. But the more I read, the more I had to read (: It's a thoughtful and practical guide to simplifying busy lives and stresses that living simply is not about being frugal, living on a tight budget, or a modest income, but rather, being fully aware of what you're doing and why you're doing it.

Luhrs demonstrates through many real-life examples how you can redesign your life and learn to savor every moment. I'm about 1/4 of the way through and love the way she presents simplifying as a process. It's not something you do in one weekend and it doesn't happen overnight. Luhrs breaks things down into categories of life and discusses each one in detail. Topics include:
  • Time
  • Money
  • Inner Simplicity
  • Work
  • Simple Pleasures and Romance
  • Virtues
  • Families
  • Holidays
  • Cooking and Nutrition
  • Health and Exercise
  • Housing
  • Clutter
  • Gardening and Travel
If your looking for a comprehensive guide to living the simple life, give "The Simple Living Guide" a try and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear about changes you're making to bring simplicity into your life.
