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.

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.

Investing is a scary word for most people. Because of the fear it strikes into our hearts, this often means that most people don’t take advantage of it beyond 401Ks (sometimes not even then). That’s why Ksenia Yudina, former financial hotshot — I guess now an even bigger financial hotshot — started her own app that helped parents start investing for their children. No complicated process necessary. In fact, with her new investment app for kids, you can create a successful investment plan in less than 5 minutes based on the age of your children and your financial goals.
During quarantine, like a good chunk of 30-something moms, I casually hopped on the TikTok bandwagon. I started the usual way, trying to copy dance moves and memorize voice-overs that I had seen. As much as I liked viewing content, I did not like spending such a huge portion of my day dedicating time to memorization. It seemed like TikTok wasn’t for me, but then, one day on a whim I shared a new kind of video and since then my TikTok has taken off.

If you’re already a secret TikTok junkie, here’s how you can turn it into a mini side hustle.
