podcast about minimalism

Have you ever found yourself struggling to follow through with the minimalist lifestyle? Have you ever found it hard to let go of attachment to things or to people even though you know they don’t add any value to your life? Or have you ever got discouraged by other people?

I make small, easy changes to myself each and every day – let go of unnecessary things and be mindful of what things I consume. Being a minimalist isn’t not…

How I Became a Minimalist

How I became a minimalist

How has your life changed since a year ago?

How has your life changed since a year ago? “One year ago, I was just a fresh graduate who asked my parents for money every now and then. One year ago, I sat there by the window, staring blankly off into space, having no clue of what I should do and where I should start.
