Discover how Lining up your shoes after you take them off can bring order to your life. Putting down your fork after every bite can help you feel more grateful for what you have. Spending time barefoot can strengthen your body. Planting a flower and watching it grow can teach you to embrace change. Going outside to watch the sunset can make every day feel celebratory. In Zen The Art of Simple Living, you will learn to find happiness not by seeking out extraordinary experiences but by making small changes - to what you do, how you think, how you interact with others and how you appreciate the present moment.
