As you may know, I've been particularly motivated to intensify my minimalism practices since reading Marie Kondo's book and drastically reducing the number of things I own. (Read about how I reduced my wardrobe my more than half here).
Last month I experimented with a capsule wardrobe by completing the 30x30 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge. This month, I've decided to broaden the practice of minimalism beyond the spectrum of physical items and objects and into the digital, the psychological, and the emotional. I think this 30-day challenge designed by Into Mind will be perfect for it.
One of the things that's great about this challenge is that you can choose any task to complete on any day, so that it works for your lifestyle. For example, I could never stay off the internet on a work day, so I'll pick a Saturday or Sunday for that.
As with all minimalistic practices, the idea isn't to deprive yourself of what you need or what makes you happy (or "sparks joy" as Marie Kondo would say). Rather, a challenge like this is designed to test the boundaries of what you need and find out where they extend into what you think you need that's actually dragging you down.
If you'd like to do the challenge yourself, you can read more about it here. Make sure to let me know how it goes for you? And even if you just decide to do a few things on the list, I'd love to hear about that too. Which tasks look the most interesting to you? Are there any other tools you use to practice minimalism in your everyday life?
