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. I want to be as free from the constraints of modern, consumerist life as possible.
