** The Art of Simple Living by Shunmyo Masuno


The Art of Simple Living: 100 Daily Practices from a Japanese Zen Monk for a Lifetime of Calm and Joy delivers 100 short lessons on how to slow down and be more present. I particularly liked the idea that lining up discarded shoes could help bring order to your mind (good to feed our OCD side, too). Some of the lessons are repetitive, and others will bring to mind our friend Marie Kondo, but I found the whole exercise very calming, if not exactly joyful.
