Back in 2008, my grandparents had moved into an assisted living home. Someone needed to go through their small, rambler home and put on an estate sale. I think it was too painful for my aunt to go through her childhood home, so I offered to do it. My grandparent’s home had always been the one place that actually felt like a home to me. I moved around a lot as a kid and the one constant I had was that tiny little rambler. Just like when I was a kid I loved digging through my grandma’s drawers. It felt like a treasure hunt. That’s why I was kind of excited to be the one to go through everything. I couldn’t help but wonder what treasures had been hidden there for 50 or so years.
When it comes to adopting a healthy lifestyle, the significance of your food choices cannot be overstated. Your immune system’s strength depends largely on what goes inside your body, which is why it’s important to be as careful as possible with what you eat. And with the holy grail that is organic food, you can never go wrong!
Have you ever had a moment in life where you all of a sudden feel like you hit a wall. Like maybe you’ve just been going on a hamster wheel and all of a sudden you are very aware of it. Things feel off, you feel stuck. This is a good sign that you are out of alignment. I wanted to share with you some other ways to recognize if your life is starting to spiral out of alignment so that you can be proactive in recognizing this and then taking action.
I’m no stranger to having a perfectly curated minimalist wardrobe, but one thing we have yet to cover (and I have no clue why) is minimalist shoes! The thing is, it’s so amazing to have a few go-to shoes in your closet that you know will go with just about anything in your closet! I personally try to stick with white, tan and black. Fancy, I know. Typical minimalist, right? Don’t go thinking I’m so vanilla just yet though. Check out the shoe inspiration I have gathered for you today! These are minimalist style shoes that I swear will go with anything! (Basically…)
I think we can all agree when we say that the year 2020 really helped open our eyes in a big way. Maybe you started appreciating your quirky neighbor more and actually started missing seeing them so much. Perhaps you started questing your job and your other major life choices. Then again, maybe you just really started to realize how much you don’t like the color of the walls in your house. Personally, I painted my kitchen cabinets white. Something I wanted to do 4 years ago when we moved in.
The art of minimalism has been slowly but surely taking the interests of people.
It can be incorporated not just in how we ‘tidy up’ or design our home, but also in the way we dress. It can even be applied to intangible items such as how we spend our time, or in the relationships that we currently have.
Starting this lifestyle would require drastic changes to most of us. It could involve giving up on a lot of things (and people).
But eventually, the pros would outnumber the cons. After all, these changes would clear up not just your home but your mind as well.
Simply speaking, minimalism revolves around living with only the things you need and feel happy about.
