Minimalism lifestyle

I watch the minimalism documentary from Netflix, my sister recommended it. It was a turning point for me because it just ‘opened my eyes’. I have previously read about Conmari methods and some articles about it but I haven’t read the book about it. So, I liked the minimalist lifestyle and I felt like that, it could be something to try out and become familiar with more. I would want to read more about this minimalist lifestyle and method.

I follow the minimalist Facebook site.Β Here is a link to the Facebook site of the minimalists. Best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus thought they have everything that they need until they didn’t want the usual life and lifestyle anymore. They both discovered this lifestyle of minimalism and everything changed. “Joshua & Ryan have garnered an audience of more than 20 million readers, listeners, and viewers”. -> https://www.facebook.com/theminimalists/

I haven’t really done yet all the steps, what I could do. In December, I took a flea market table and sold more than 30 items as well the clothes of the home’s closet. It is one way to get rid of clothes and goods that you don’t longer need or use. At the same time, I got cleaned out of storage and closets. I just want to keep in the house just the goods that I use, or I like. In clothes, I prefer those that are comfortable and durable. I want to wear clothes that make me happy.

Here is a trailer for the documentary minimalism.

Here are some inspiration photos and text about this minimalism lifestyle.

First steps for minimalism lifestyle

I would do these challenges in spring. I would start with seven days challenge and move on to the month-long challenge. I want to take time for this thought and think peacefully what I want to keep in my life and where I want to give up. It’s a good start for this lifestyle. I think also that it’s good to think about how to spend money and goods in life in general. What I really need? Where do I want to spend money and invest in life?

Here are some links to read about minimalism lifestyle:
– The Minimalists: https://www.theminimalists.com/
– In Finnish: https://www.valtaamo.fi/elamantapana-minimalismi/

The first step could be to reduce the number of goods at home and work. Reducing the goods also has a positive effect on body and mind. Simplification reduces confusion, commodity and the order of home. Then there is room and time for everything else. Such as family, close friends, hobbies, and work. To achieve this outcome, cleaning, organizing and brainwork are required. Relaxation and being is also part of life.

Have you guys heard about this minimalist lifestyle? Or developed it in life? πŸ™‚

  3. We are spending the year traveling 50 states in 50 weeks in an rv (simplemeetsadventure.com). We had to simplify our life dont to the bare minimum, and I’ve loved it so far. I really like your challenges – they are achievable for everyone, and really help change your perspective

  4. I saw the documentary awhile ago, and you’re right, it does make the viewer think. We are a society that thrives off of commercialism, instead of relationships – which is how things used to be done. It’s made us lonely, always thinking buying something will fill a void we need by nature. I’ve been trying to not bring anything else into my home, while I slowly go through things I already have, but it’s not easy in a family setting.

    1. You speak really good point of views about minimalism. It is difficult in different lifestyles to achieve but always can be better and learn. It is already good to think about what is important in life.

  6. Wow, I really liked your post! I have to look into that documentary, it seems very interesting. It’s a beautiful mindset to be inspired by. Some aspect of it may not be completely in tune with my vibe, but the basics are what I inspire to move towards as well and while doing so, write about it as I go and think about πŸ™‚ Also the pictures are very cute ❀

  7. Great post Tiia! I love the documentary by the Minimalists. They are so inspiring. They have awesome podcasts too! There are many minimalists sharing their journey on YouTube, you can check them out – Rachel Aust, Jenny Mustard, Joshua Becker are some of my fave. Minimalism has changed my life since I embraced it a year ago. It all begins with a YouTube video about fast fashion. I’ve blogged about it:

    1. Yes πŸ™‚ I try to do better choices. Now I am doing 30-day minimalism challenge from this post. I have cleaned my home, now I try to cell something that I don’t use or need. In spring it would be good to invest more time for something else thanks material shopping. I do have bought few pieces of cheap things but only if I need those. πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading!
