eople ask is “What is minimalism”?
People even scoff at the thought of an email about ‘less’.
To clear things up.
Yes, that’s pretty broad. It’s silly to think that I could sit here and tell you to adopt some spartan lifestyle with just 100 items.
What I can & will suggest is that you:
1. Decide what you want
2. Remove anything that subtracts from #1
It’s more about finding what is essential to the experiences you want. No more, no less.
Yeah, its totally subjective. I get it. Fortunately there are strategies that can help.
I don’t know where you are at in your journey.
You could be:
* Improving your diet
* Focusing on your health
* Improving relationships
* Crushing it at work
Regardless of your focus you will find something useful for you here.
For me, it started with reading the book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. Follow here on Mari Kondo’s Twitter
Yes its’s an affiliate link. I’ll get a whopping 2 cents if you end up buying that book. I bought it, twice, gave one to my Grandma, moving on.
The book runs you through her approach to simplifying and creating a space you love once and for all. The big learning for me was to forget about organizing. I know right? How are you ever going to get your home how you want it without organizing?
She recommends, and I agree, that FIRST, you need to discard. Get rid of stuff.
Surprisingly, its really easy to do once you realize you don’t love it.
Great book, quick read, give it a look.
