Spiritual Wellness and Minimalism

Spiritual wellness is not about any specific faith, but about fostering a sense of inner peace and harmony, while conducting activities that supports one's beliefs and values.

Minimalism, at its core, is about alignment with our core values, while removing distractions. Minimalism contributes significantly to spiritual wellness by directing our finite resources of time, money and energy towards the things that matter to us the most.

Minimalism and Physical Wellness

Physical wellness is about developing healthy habits and minimizing any risky behaviors, which can affect our well-being.

Minimalism encourages physical wellness by making healthier eating choices, avoiding any unnecessary eating, focusing on an active lifestyle, and removing physical clutter from our surroundings.

Moving from Art Nouveau towards Art Deco

In 1915, a Danish company for decorative arts launched a magazine to promote local craftsmanship.

It was made to compete against the Art Noveau movement. Social commentary pressed more on the arts, which paved the way for Art Deco - an industrially-driven design philosophy.

The Golden Age of Scandinavian Design

  • In the 1930s, artists, inspired by the concepts of Constructivism, Functionalism, and Surrealism, paved the way for Nordic design's iconic milestones.
  • In the 1950s, the Lunning Prize (an equivalent of Nobel Prize) hailed exemplary designers who have given valuable contributions to Nordic Design from 1951 to 1970.
  • In 1954, a traveling exhibition comprised of the region's best designs landed in the United States and Canada and influenced the American culture.
  • In Denmark, Danish design thrived during the 1940s to the 1960s and created its own flavor, abandoning grandeur ornamentation in pursuit of form and function.
  • After WWII, Danish design has become a democratic movement, where makers turn to mass-producing natural raw materials such as ceramics, wood, and leather.
  • While the popularity declined in the 1970s, it had an upturn a decade later.

There is no single way to lead a minimalist life

There is no single way to lead a minimalist life

Minimalism is often seen as an all-white room containing few furniture pieces. There are no colors or patterns or decorative accents that don't serve some function. However, this is not true.

Minimalism can help you save money

Instead of trying to find ways to make more money, minimalists contemplate the opposite: They live with less.

Minimalists find that after going through simplifying their lives and their interiors, they feel more at peace and in charge of their surroundings.

Decluttering can be emotional

Getting started on the road to minimalism can be the hardest. Once you realise how much you own, it can be overwhelming and fill you with guilt about the money wasted.

After decluttering, you may encounter another emotional factor: When you live with just the things you really love, breaking something will feel way more dramatic.
