Book Review of A Monk's Guide to a Clean House and Mind

'A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind’ by Shoukei Matsumoto

This book’s author, Shoukei Matsumoto is a practising monk at the Komyoji Temple in Tokyo and he’s making us feel way more excited about a spring clean than we ever thought we would.

Most of you know that over here at G+C we do our best to live by the code ‘Make Life Richer’ and that’s a big sentiment that comes through in Matsumoto’s book. He advocates for small but significant changes to your routine and daily habits (in the morning, at mealtimes, before bed) that will help to bring calm and happiness to your life. If that’s not an arrow aimed at making life richer, then we don’t know what is.

Organised by topics including rooms in the house, personal items, maintenance and body & mind, this pint-sized book will get a handle on your home and push you toward a “cleaner, calmer, happier life”. Sign. Us. Up.
