Be more with less book
Simple Ways to be More with less by Courtney CarverIf you have imagined a life with less, reading this book is a great way to get started. Most of us have lived our adult lives working more, to make more, to spend more, to have more. We haven’t done it maliciously, but out of habit.
Our parents wanted better for us and we want better for our children, but somewhere along the way we forgot what better was.
These 27 ideas will help you be more with less. They are simple for the most part, but sometimes the smallest change makes the biggest difference. As you go through this process, you will subtract things from your life, and add other things (which aren’t really “things”) back in.
Living with less sometimes means adding more in the way of healthy habits to your lifestyle. You don’t have to do everything in the order that they appear. You don’t have to do all of them or any of them. Pick and choose the suggestions that work for you. Implement these ideas to create your life on purpose.
Simple Ways to be More with less
Courtney shares her story in moving from a stressful, cluttered, busy life that led to a devastating diagnosis to a life with better health, more space, time, and love. Each section of the book is packed with practical suggestions too so you can create your own soulful simplicity. Below is an excerpt from the book, one that I think will make a huge impact on anyone looking to life outside the status quo and find meaning. Busyness has become more pervasive than clutter in complicating our lives. We have plenty of decluttering strategies, but what should we do about our busy lives? You might not think you have time for a revolution right now, but if you ever want time for a life that matters, this is the right time to revolt. Try the following twenty-one-day challenge and practice each of these three simple steps for seven days each.
When I am actively making positive changes in my life or trying something new, I like to read inspiring books to keep me engaged and help to either shift my mindset, or support my efforts. If I want to read them again, I get them from the library. These books have all made a difference in my life.

I read a combination of ebooks and print books. I was slow to move to Kindle reading because I love ink on paper, but now enjoy the advantages of a simple e-reader. If you have a little downtime coming up or are determined to build in pockets of solitude for reading, here are a few books you might enjoy to inspire simplicity and support your journey to live with less. In Living With Less, Joshua will guide you through biblical teachings on possessions and his own personal experience with minimalism living with only the essential. In this book Strobel combines research on well-being with numerous real-world examples to offer practical inspiration. Ready to sweep away the clutter? Ramsey debunks the many myths of money exposing the dangers of cash advance, rent-to-own, debt consolidation and attacks the illusions and downright deceptions of the American dream, which encourages nothing but overspending and massive amounts of debt.
