Love People, Use Things

Love People, Use Things Because the Opposite Never Works

'The Minimalists show you how to disconnect from our conditioned material state and reconnect to our true essence: love people and use things. This is not a book about how to live with less, but about how to live more deeply and more fully.' Jay Shetty, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Like a Monk 'Joshua and Ryan have penned an urgent manifesto for the growing movement away from the material and towards the meaningful. An important book for our current moment.' Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of A World Without Email and Digital Minimalism AS SEEN ON THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARIES MINIMALISM & LESS IS NOW How might your life be better with less? Imagine a life with less: less stuff, less clutter, less stress and debt and discontent - a life with fewer distractions. Now, imagine a life with more: more time, more meaningful relationships, more growth and contribution and contentment - a life of passion, unencumbered by the trappings of the chaotic world around you. What you're imagining is an intentional life. And to get there, you'll have to let go of some clutter that's in the way. In Love People, Use Things, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus move past simple decluttering to show how minimalism makes room to reevaluate and heal the seven essential relationships in our lives: stuff, truth, self, money, values, creativity and people. They use their own experiences?and those of the people they have met along the minimalist journey?to provide a template for how to live a fuller, more meaningful life. Because once you have less, you can make room for the right kind of more.
