Minimalism as a lifestyle


Minimalism: Isn’t that when you never buy anything, or live without a car or TV? Not necessarily, say American minimalists Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. ‘Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important,’ they write, ‘so you can find happiness, fulfillment and freedom.’

  • 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’

*A story about minimalism can be found in Issue 26. We also share an excerpt of it on our blog.
