Living with less creates space for more: more time, more peace, and more joy.
At the heart of minimalism is the realization that excess possessions often distract us from meaning and happiness. Minimalism is about freeing ourselves from the weight of unnecessary possessions and experiencing the freedom that comes from living lightly.
Every other week, I gather articles that inspire and motivate us to lead simpler lives. My hope is to equip all of us with the courage to let go and the determination to live with less.
So I encourage everyone to take a quiet moment this weekend with a hot cup of coffee or tea to enjoy these articles and reflect on their message.
