In our stressful world, full of messages that tell us more is always better and that we can buy our way to happiness, our true needs are often ignored, buried under a pile of excess things and relentless busyness.  Minimalism can reduce the background noise of clutter in your home and schedule so you can gain clarity about what really matters to you.






Over the next several weeks, we're going to look at some basics, the A to Z of Minimalism, that can help you start living with freedom and intention.


A - pay Attention.

C - Clear the clutter.

D - Do less.

E - Embrace empty space.

F - gain Financial Freedom.

G - Give Gifts that matter.

H - new Habits keep life simple.

I - your Identity is not in your things.

J - Journal your gratitude.

K - cultivate Kindness.

L - love Limits.

M - Memories don't reside in things.

N - Non-conform.

O - One in, one (or more) out.

P - treasure Public spaces.

Q - opt for Quality over quantity.
