“Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.”
— Edwin Way Teale

High Thinking and Simple Living

Minimalism is not about depriving yourself or making do with less than necessary. Minimalism is about identifying what is important and focusing on the essential. It is about removing what is superfluous to free up valuable time and space for what is significant.

Minimalism helps us avoid living beyond our means. It allows us to hone in on what is most important to us. It gives us freedom to be our true selves. Only by letting go of everything that does not serve us can we truly cherish everything that takes us higher.

Minimalism need not be difficult to incorporate into everyday life for any lifestyle. It just requires being mindful of things and actively making decisions that are consistent with one’s core values. Less clutter and possessions can have a profound effect.
