I’ve been listening to some random podcasts on how to develop a “minimalist” mindset. What I’ve liked about these podcasts is that it has required me to think about my buying behaviors, and the reasons why I sometimes impulsively purchase things that I simply don’t need. It’s a worthwhile venture right now for me as I would like to get away from consumerism, and make better buying choices. I’m applying some of the ideas and already seeing a difference. Also, the podcasts discuss why people hoard, and how to stop habits that hinder us in the long term. (I don’t struggle with hoarding, thankfully.) So, do you consider yourself to be a minimalist? * Not a fan of “isms” but for the sake of simplicity, we’ll use the term “minimalism” for the discussion.
