Minimalism is how I reduce distractions in my life so I can do more of what matters.
  • If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the idea of doing more of the things that matter most to you, your calendar is overscheduled, or your physical space is filled with items that don’t serve you and your family, minimalism will help you make more space in your life.
  • Space to take bigger risks, try something new or simply spend more time with the people you care about.
  • Over time, minimalism can potentially help in making a radical lifestyle change like moving to a new city, changing careers or exploring entrepreneurship.

Minimalism Defined

Minimalism is defined as a design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.

Minimalism had its origins in the arts—with the artwork featuring simple lines, only a few colors, and careful placement of those lines and colors.


Minimalism Defined II

Representative of a lifestyle that aims to remove clutter from all facets of life. 

A lifestyle practice focused on minimizing distractions that keep you from doing what matters to you.

Minimalism is all about owning only what adds value and meaning to your life (as well as the lives of the people you care about) and removing the rest.

It’s about removing the clutter and using your time and energy for the things that remain.

We only have a certain amount of energy, time, and space in our lives. In order to make the most of it, we must be intentional about how we’re living each day .

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.



Minimalism Defined III

There are many different approaches to minimalism, but it’s really just a tool to help you prioritize what’s important in your life.

Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist offers this definition: “Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things that bring you joy and the removal of those that do not.”

It might be called simple living, tiny living, intentional living, and a myriad of other things—but there is at least one common thread: the idea of curating the things we own to best reflect our priorities and vision for our lives.
