Minimalism: Less is More

Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom. Freedom from fear. Freedom from worry. Freedom from overwhelm. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from depression. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real freedom.

Hi Peachers, today we are tackling the clutter in our lives both mentally and physically. In today's world we are wired to be consumers always wanting more. More in our homes, more in our closets, and more and more stuff to fill that void or buy fleeting happiness. By the time you know it, you're are buried in CRAP. The real question is, what adds value to our lives? This is where minimalism can answer that.

What IS Minimalism and How Can It Help?

Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom. - The Minimalists

How awesome is that? I always find massive relief in de-cluttering my life, whether that be errands, stuff, and other non-valuable things or thoughts that take away from me being my best self. That isn't always easy though, as I'm only human and do like things! The trick really is to see through needs vs. wants and what truly adds purpose to our existence.

For example, minimalism can:

  • Eliminate our discontent

  • Reclaim our time

  • Live in the moment

  • Pursue our passions

  • Discover our missions

  • Experience real freedom

  • Create more, consume less

  • Focus on our health

  • Grow as individuals

  • Contribute beyond ourselves

  • Rid ourselves of excess stuff

  • Discover purpose in our lives

We all want to be happy so why not give it a try! The plus side is, you're not contributing to our capitalistic society, being a less wasteful and consumptive creature. Yay sustainability! (You know we had to throw that in there :)).
