What is Minimalism?
Many people ask us that question, and the truth is that minimalism means something different for every individual.
Minimalism is not about extremes, it’s about identifying what’s important for you, and what’s not. And making sure that the unimportant things don’t take your time and energy away from you.
We have been using minimalism principles since 2008. We both traveled the world only carrying a backpack. Let me tell you that you learn very quickly what’s important when you have to carry it on your back :).
Minimalism is not about extremes, you don’t need to let go of everything you love, you don’t need to live in a tiny home, and you don’t have to travel either. It’s about reflecting, understanding what you want and why you want it, removing the excess and setting your intention in the important things. And you are the one defining the “important things” for you.
Minimalism is a tool that you can use to declutter your life of all the excess that is preventing you from experiencing happiness, fulfillment, and freedom. It will help you to reassess your priorities and cut through the noise of distractions and busyness to get to where you want to go.
There are many benefits for learning how to embrace minimalism into your life. You become a more focused and relaxed person to be around, people will notice positive changes in your attitude. You will develop productive habits that reinforce this new way of living, so it’s a life-long investment of your time spent learning.
