What If I Am Just Happy With A Quiet Life?

Minimalism can seem like a strange, hard to define concept, not only to those who don’t regard it with high importance, but also to those amongst us who hold it as a cornerstone to their best lives. To me, minimalism has always been, as above, an artistic movement. But what about when people begin applying the concept to their lifestyles? Is less really more? And how do we go about shaping our lives in this so-called “minimalist” way? These are the exact questions which I am hoping to answer through my own, personal experience of contracting my life to fit into the minimalism thresholds. I want to declutter not only possessions, but also my mind, my time, and my relationships. I want to strip everything back to its bare minimum.

The “Declutter 5” Project

Change The Code

Defeat Clutter Forever

Do you have some decluttering that you need to do but feel a bit overwhelmed at the thought of taking on what seems like a monumental task?

How I cured my anxiety

Reblogged from

The Nerdy Lion

Anxiety sucks, I know it, you know it, I think even deep-down anxiety knows it’s a deplorable piece of poop as well. No breath is deep enough, sleep is difficult to come by and you just feel burdened by, well, everything; society’s expectations, the ones you set on yourself, and most importantly – your cat. It literally feels like the world is weighing on your shoulders and you feel alone, like the only person in the world who has ever felt this way. Yeah, it feels insurmountable and sure, you probably feel embarrassed that you let it get this far. But don’t worry, the Lion is here to help you. Now before you go ahead and take everything I say as gospel, just remember I don’t have a doctorate in psychology or therapy. I do however think……like a lot, so you are in safe hands.

How would you feel? How would you react? I will admit to being a bit disappointed. And stressed. He has … Continue reading Accept What Is — Don’t Judge as Good or Bad
