About R and R
R & R most commonly stands for Rest & Relaxation however we like to think of it as Ray & Ruby.
Entrepreneurs and business owners for most of our lives, we made the leap to change our life and business style. We decided on a Digital Lifestyle and now have a business which can be operated from anywhere with a computer and an internet connection.
The books that we create are mostly on topics that we had to master in order to have the life that we now get to experience.
"A Simpler Life" is now an everyday joy!

This quick read will help you determine what Minimalism is and what it's not!
What is minimalism? Just like most other people, it might bring up images of self-denial, purity, bare walls, frugality, or a house with no furniture. It might seem to be an exercise in depriving yourself of certain aspects of life for the sake of it. How mundane and colorless! Who would want a life like that? However, this view is light years away from what this book will tell you about minimalism.
In its purest form, minimalism is precisely the opposite. It defines freedom, joy, and peace differently. It is a space that you open up to invite more new possibilities. Good riddance to bad rubbish, as it gives clarity towards the life that we want. For a majority of us who are living in developed nations, about 98 percent of this means to minimize our possessions and not add to them. Therefore we have to learn about the practical skill of minimizing.
With that as a foundation, a definition for minimalism is the purposeful promotion of most valued things and the removal of distractions. The truth and full potential of what minimalism can give, and not what it takes away.
We want to warn you that merely reading through wouldn't do much to change that viewpoint. If you want to expand your understanding of this book, you have to not only read its content but also take action. Read the book more than just once. Re-reading parts will always help to find more meaning and energize you to change your life. Highlighting passages that make sense and taking notes are ways to understand yourself. Most importantly, taking action is what's going to change your life.
For all goals and purposes, this book comes with thoughts, strategies, experiments, and recommendations. Therefore, it is a book of advice. Irrespective of the stage of life that you are in, this book can help you improve your relationships, health, growth, passions, and contributions to others. However, first, we will define minimalism and what it means “to be” a minimalist. Then we address how a minimalist living can bring change to your life. Once we're inspired, we face the resistance that blocks our path towards a better life. Finally, we discuss deeper motivations “to be” a minimalist.
In this book, we will look at the following topics:
- Consumer Cultures
- Misconception 1: It is about giving up everything
- Misconception 2: It is about organizing
- Your choice, your purpose
- The Promises of Consumerism
- Success and Excess
- Spot the Tools of Deception
- More Out Of Less
- When the Norm is Wrong
- Making it Practical
- Thoroughly Minimalist
- And many other topics...

Have you ever thought how simple your life would be if you didn’t have so many things in it?
The fact is that less is more, and people are beginning to realize it. The consumerism dream has resulted in more people becoming stressed or being treated for stress-related illnesses and general discontent in most homes. The fact is that we trusted the consumerism dream and we bought into it, but the dream is very far from reality. In this 10 step guide, we will show you how to tackle your life and get rid of those things that are not adding value to it.
In our current life, we seldom watch television now, but when we do, we are always amazed at the number of advertisements trying to sell us some new must-have product. You see all kinds of products being introduced onto the market with names you have never heard before, claiming to be better than their predecessors.
The problem with this is that we somehow forgot about all of the crucial things in life. It wasn’t about having a happier life. It was all about gratification and instant gratification at that. Be honest. How long did that phone give you entertainment, was it worth the money you paid for it? Looking back at our childhood and the things that made us happy, we wouldn’t mind betting that kids in the old days got far more value from a set of pick up sticks than you did from that new expensive investment.
It doesn’t end there. There are other areas of your life to declutter. Why? Well, the people you know as friends are not all positive contributors to your life. Do you get used by people? Do you get trampled on by those who think they are superior to you? Well, clearing out the friendship zone is equally important. In this book, we will deal with all of the things you need to declutter in ten steps. The order in which this is suggested is purposeful. The reason for that is because if you declutter your mind first, the rest gets easier because your brain is ready to say goodbye to anything that has no value in your life.
The minimalist movement in this day and age is winning. People are living in tiny homes. Others are merely living in homes that offer them everything they ever wanted in life, but they have recognized that it isn't the material things that provide you happiness. Home should be a place where you have peace of mind, where you have space to breathe and where you can enjoy your life to the extent of sharing that love with all of those people who are important to you. Instead of being on the gravy train to misery, step into the world of decluttering, and you will soon understand it. It simplifies your life. It simplifies all of the things you have to retain in your head, and it simplifies all of your priorities.
At the end of it all, you have one life to live. Do you want to spend it in debt? Do you want to spend it with people who don’t deserve you? How about spending it trying to become better than the people you are jealous of? It’s crazy to think that things can bring you any happiness, so take the leap. Take the ten steps and follow us into a better world where you matter, and all of the people within your life add value to it.

Habits Are The Foundation of Success
We all have some habits that we are not proud of what we want to break as well as other good habits that we want to nurture. Unfortunately, most people think breaking habits is like flipping a switch, i.e., that you just decide to quit smoking and you do or decide to start waking up early, and you simply do it.
Here is the thing; habits don’t just disappear. You’re not going to wake up one day and find that you now hate cigarettes. Yes, you may let go of the habit for a while maybe because your mind is preoccupied with other things at the moment but unless you’ve made conscious efforts to break or alter a habit, it never really goes away.
So, yes, you’re stuck with that damaging habit for the rest of your life until you do something about it. Unfortunately, ‘doing something about it’ is not always as easy as it sounds. When something becomes a habit, it’s more or less like an addiction.
Moreover, learning a new habit is not easier either because the human brain doesn’t really like ‘hard work.’
You need to be deliberate and to sort of ‘hack’ your brain if you really want your mind to ‘get used’ to engaging in a specific habit. If you’ve tried breaking bad habits and building new ones unsuccessfully, you know that it is not a walk in the park. We know you also understand just how frustrating it can get.
However, the process doesn’t have to be complicated; you can learn the whole process and successfully build any new habit while breaking any bad habit. And this book will give you the necessary framework to follow to help you break any bad habit and build any good habit.
In simple terms, the book will demystify the habit learning process.
• How to break bad habits
• How to learn new habits easily
• The habits of successful, healthy and happy people that you can also learn
• And much more

Wondering what successful people do differently than others?
Why can't your life be every bit as happy as theirs?
In this book, I will show you what’s missing from your particular equation, so that you can get your life on track and instantly feel yourself inclined toward doing what it takes.
You may be surprised that you have more control over your life than you think. I have heard people who have come to me for advice moaning about why their lives are so bad, but when push comes to shove, the only person who needed shoving in the right direction was them! That’s why I wrote this book. They actually begged me to because my system works and it can be your system too. It’s all about the Law of Attraction and getting rid of all of the negativity that you allow to get in the way of your progress. Yes, it’s you who allows it. Thus, I need to teach you a new way to look at life that not only gives you the incentive to succeed and be happy, but that will lead you to doing the things you need to do without having to motivate yourself. As the title says “F*ck Motivation!” You don’t need motivational books to tell you what you already know.
What you do need is a step in the right direction followed by another step in the right direction. Once I help you to find that direction, you won't look back with regret anymore. In fact, you will have so many ideas about where your life is going that you will be tireless! Read on and find your energy within the pages of this book. Once you have, don't forget where you got that sense of happiness from. Be prepared to congratulate yourself because you are the only one who can make this kind of difference to your own life!

This Quick Read Beginner's Guide to Meditation can help you get started on the road to be more productive, happy and less stressed.
Do you feel stuck in your life? Has chronic stress become a part of your life and you do not know how to effectively deal with it? Do you feel your life has a huge void that is only growing bigger, deeper and darker with time?
If you answered these questions with a “yes” it is okay, I understand your pain. It is not abnormal to experience these feelings; all of us do feel this way at some point in our lives. What is important is that we realize that something is not right, and instead of shoving it deep down within our heart, we decide to uncover, explore, understand and accept it. It is courageous of you to accept that your life is not headed in the right direction and that you need to do something about it.
While you may look for answers to your problems outside of you and around you, the truth is that all the answers exist within yourself. Yes, everything that you need to know to improve your life and transform it for the better by infusing happiness, meaning, value and empowerment in, it is just inside you waiting for you to explore and tap into it.
We are the creators of our life and destiny, and if we only understand our true power and take action towards unleashing that power, we can be the finest versions of ourselves. Obviously, you cannot do that if you don’t get to a point of being mindful of yourself and your environment. And what better way to practice self-discovery, awareness and mindfulness than through practicing meditation?
This practice definitely holds the power to change you for the best, and when you change, you automatically improve your life. While there are many meditation based guides in the market, not many cater just to the needs of beginners who are new to the practice, or know of it, but have never practiced it.

This book has 10 powerful ideas on how to train your puppy or dog in as little as a month to keep everybody in your house happy and stress free.
Owning a pet, training it, and seeing it grow into an obedient and valuable member of the family is very fulfilling.
The idea of taking a puppy home, acclimatizing it to its new home, caring for it, potty training it, and teaching it how to obey your commands is likely to fill you and your family—especially if you have kids—with lots of excitement, which is great but...
Training your puppy is a very involved process. It requires a detailed plan, loads of patience, and a god-like level of focus and consistency. This guide takes you by the hand and using very detailed prompts, shows you how to train your puppy or dog within a month. By design, the ideas and strategies discussed in this guide are actionable and very easy to implement.
