Minimalism is having a bit of a moment, partly due to the success of Marie Kondo’s book ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying’.
In her book, Marie urges readers to ask themselves whether or not the objects they own “spark joy”, if they don’t – get rid.
Being a minimalist means living simply and removing the excess or unnecessary. This can range from the objects you own, to your wardrobe and even the way you eat.
So why would anyone want to consider minimalism?
A well-known saying may be the answer, ‘a tidy room = a tidy mind’. Put simply, many people find the less physical stuff they have, the less emotional ‘stuff’ they have.
