When I started my minimalist journey, it was mostly because I became hyper-aware of how much I had let stuff dictate my life and how I saw my own worth as a person. Living your life for things won’t get you very far, especially when there is always some new cool thing you want. It’s a vicious cycle of spending and unhappiness. However, as I began practicing minimalism in every area of my life, I began finding that along with it, I was gaining more mental and spiritual clarity. I was less stressed and had developed a bigger vision for what I wanted from my life. It’s insane how much minimalism can affect our brains and mental health for the better. Here are a few ways you can make massive change today.

Because of this, I have found more time on my hands, I see more connection in our family and marriage, and have cultivated more creativity in my life. Since our family has seen massive benefits from less screen time, I put together a mix of 18 different strategies you can put into play in your own home that will help you watch less TV this year and just maybe start living a bigger, bolder life.
