Just a little video about my journey to becoming a minimilist! One of my new year resolutions was to reduce the amount of things in my life, and I thought I’d do a small update about this for this weeks’ blog. Initially, I was going to do a book review of “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo, but it was very difficult to do without giving too much information away from the book. I don’t believe it’s right for me to summarise the book in a 5 minute video, when an author has probably sat for at least a year writing a fantastic book – I personally don’t agree with that although I have seen some YouTubers doing it. The book is amazing, and all I can say is that it brings awareness and a new level of appreciation for the things you own, so you will make sure to put your stuff back and keep things tidy when you have finished this book! This book includes the “KonMari method” – which is a process of getting rid of things you no longer need. This book will definitely help you make the first step needed to living a minimalist lifestyle.
This video is more of a brief vlog about what minimalism is, and what it means for me. Everyone is different and may choose to do this for different reasons, like to save money, to become a more charitable person, or simply to just become more tidy!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks video 🙂
UPDATE: I have downsized everything, got rid of my car, my house, sold many of my valuables and I’m now travelling the world. You can see my travel videos below but I will be continuing to live a minimalist life. I have changed my diet to a vegetarian diet also.
