I’ve been on a minimalist/resourceful/lean living journey for the past few years—you can read my past post on my journey of getting rid of half of my stuff here. It’s changed the way I live my life from what possessions I own, how I spend my time and what I eat every day. There is something beautiful to living simply—or “lean.” I’ve noticed my stress is reduced, my mind can slow down, I’m able to think things through, focus on what’s important and life is a lot easier in general. .
