Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2015 -- The frenzied materialistic quest for ever more possessions which many people engage in is nothing more than a relic from an earlier episode in American history and most of us would be happier and healthier by distancing ourselves from that quest and adopting a simpler lifestyle. That is the central message of True Minimalism: Lifestyle of the Now a new e-book, which, appropriately launch's today in preparation for the United Nations' World Environment Day (WED), June 5, 2015.
The e-book's author, Carey Harris, explores the nature of minimalism and explains how adopting a minimalist lifestyle can benefit anyone affected by the stress of contemporary life as well as allowing people to make a significant contribution to the wellbeing of others both in the immediate neighborhood and in the world. Harris explains how today's preoccupation with materialism contributes to a physically and mentally unhealthy environment and demonstrates how such approaches as prioritizing quality over quantity of possessions, seeking items which can be used for multiple purposes and implementing a more minimalist lifestyle can deliver an improved quality of life and help people to be not only healthier and happier, but also more creative and productive in their everyday lives.
Carey Harris is also the author of The Guide to Financial Success Using PR (2012) and co-founder of S&H Public Relations, which is dedicated to raising the profile of talented up-and-coming independent artists whose work is often overlooked. He believes that the time is now for people to focus on what is really important in their lives, without the distraction of unnecessary clutter around them. He says: "American life is changing and old materialistic ways are no longer relevant or even healthy or wise. Living with unnecessary clutter has been shown to stress both the body and the mind; people can improve their health and the quality of their lives by freeing themselves of items that do not serve any useful purpose or have any sentimental value."
