In 2014, I became both fascinated and inspired by the concept of minimalism and the idea of decreasing the clutter, chaos, and stuff in our lives. From capsule wardrobes, to digital declutter, its about being selective of the essentials and being able to direct more of our time, energy, and focus on them. The word minimalism may sound challenging and even a bit extreme, but really, I envision it as a form of simplicity. Simple doesn’t mean ‘shallow’, rather, I think it embodies elegance and sophistication. To sum, its about quality > quantity.
I’m planning to further explore and apply the concept of minimalism in my blog posts, because I feel that it strongly connects to health + wellness. Through this, I hope that I can inspire you to see how different aspects of our life can be approached with more simplicity.
