Free eBook: Minimalist Health

by Tammy Strobel on March 12, 2010

Note: This ebook is no longer available in a PDF version. However you can read it on Issuu.

Since the release of Simply Car-free, I’ve received an incredible number of emails from folks asking questions like:

How can I improve my health?
What are the best ways to lose weight?
Where can I find real food?

In response to the questions I’ve received, I decided to write my first free e-book. The book is 20 pages and I hope it will help you get active.

You only get one body and mind. If you don’t take care of both, it’s hard to create amazing art or get involved in your community. I hope this manifesto will help you improve your health and inspire you to change the world.

If this e-book helps you, please help spread the word by…

  • Sharing it with your tribe on Twitter or Facebook.
  • Writing about it on your blog.
  • Printing out copies and leaving them in your local library or coffee shop.

Please let me know what you think. Feel free to connect with me on twitter.

I absolutely love your credit to your cats “I would also like to thank my
furry friends for teaching me about the health benefits of
afternoon naps.” Yay for kitties helping us to slow down, relax, and enjoy life more.

Thanks Chelsea. :) I really think animals have a lot to teach us about slowing down and unconditional love. :)

You are such an inspiration. I’ve always wanted to go down that route, but you’re the “push” I need! We don’t have that much debt like you did, but it’s quite annoying to us. It’s just sitting there, on our shoulders, day after day. My husband keeps saying we need to have just one car. We did have that moment for a while when my SUV was bashed in, unfortunately, by someone under the influence. Then I got my car, but since we work so close to each other, we may just go one-car again. And whenever I work for myself full-time, I may just buy a bike for errands!

Thanks for the push! One question though, are your books available for purchase/download through iBooks?

Thanks so much – Kerri

Tammy this is awesome! I have been living with physical back pain and just feeling stuck in a downward spiral of non-guidance, this is refreshing. There are still people who rally are “living” in our beautiful world. Thank you!!

I’m so happy I’m able to read your blog! I’m a former Operations Manager, and lost my job last year in August. Couldn’t find anything till now, but quite a long time ago I begun to ask myself if I really want a job of this kind again. Of course I have a hard time paying my bills, but since I’ve moved in a small village and a small house, three years ago, I’ve discovered how happy I am when I cultivate land, take care of my poultry and playing games with my two dogs and two cats. I hope that soon I will find a solution to make a living from my home. I have a few ideas, but it’s hard to start with no money :-). Despite of my friends and family – they were devastated when they found me up to my ankle in dirt :-) – I feel really good here with my veggies, herbs, chicken, cats and dogs. I don’t watch TV anymore (I’ve never been a fan), I’m healthier than I used to be and I can say that I’m a lot happier. I’ll keep an eye on your blog. Thank you for being here!
P.S. I’m planning to get a goat and some ducks soon. :-)

Thank you for writing this. :) The ‘clear out your stuff’ link isn’t working? Do you know if that is a temporary thing or a real issue? Thanks again!

14 Tammy August 10, 2010

@S Thanks for the head’s up! The link is supposed to go to Leo Babauta’s book “The simple guide to a minimalist life”. Cheers!

You’ve reinspired me to be in touch with my own essential self and create the world that means the most to me.

Aww it seems like you beat me to the punch with a ‘minimalist health’ manifesto. Oh well! Will share regardless :) Keep up the awesome work and that minimalist booksale was off the chain!

Wow, what a great blog! I was doing a search for “how to live ultra simple” after events of the past couple of days kind of shook me into it, LOL! Your writing and ideas are wonderful, thank you for sharing them with everyone. Downloading this book now :)
