Let me ask you, what do you think of when you hear the word ‘minimalism’?
Someone that owns 50 things, who doesn’t own or watch TV, that hasn’t bought anything new since 2012 and lives in the middle of nowhere? It is the common stereotype people think of. I once did, and often cited the seeming ‘restrictions’ above, that I could never be a minimalist.When I first heard of minimalism, I associated it entirely to mean the reduction in what we own, to minimalise. But then as I got more into sustainability and learnt how to live in a more holistic way, I feel as though I unintentionally shifted towards a more minimalist lifestyle.
