What is Minimalism?

According to “the Minimalists” (Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus), minimalism is “a lifestyle that helps people question what things add value to their lives”. These two well-known minimalism enthusiasts point out that having fewer objects enables people to focus on those parts of their lives that matter the most. For example, on relationships and health. Is there anything more valuable in 2021? Or ever, for that matter.

Leading a minimalist lifestyle has numerous other advantages. It can teach you to live in the moment, it can help you pursue your true passions, it can enable you to grow as an individual.  And the list goes on and on.
