I just came across an article introducing the idea of minimalism. It says minimalism had its origins in the arts, but more recently, it has become representative of a lifestyle that aims to remove clutter from all facets of life. Minimalism is all about owning only what adds value and meaning to your life (as well as the lives of the people you care about) and removing the rest. It’s about removing the clutter and using your time and energy for the things that remain. We only have a certain amount of energy, time, and space in our lives. In order to make the most of it, we must be intentional about how we’re living each day.
This article also points out that you don’t need to get rid of your favorite collection—whether it’s books, shoes, or music. Minimalism doesn’t have to look like white-walled, modern and sparse homes you’ve probably seen in magazines and videos, which is a common minimalism mistake.
