the Minimalists – Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus on their website state “Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom. Freedom from fear. Freedom from worry. Freedom from overwhelm. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from depression. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real freedom.
We think about a lot of things through the day. So many ideas and thoughts enter our minds, cross our paths, come before us and we ponder them, mull over them and make various decisions.
Some thoughts and ideas we don’t really notice. Why? Because we aren’t always mindful of them. Do you remember the drive to work? The drive home? What did you have for lunch last Saturday? Which side of the mouth do you start brushing your teeth? When was the last time you ate a steak out at restaurant?
Mindfulness is now a topic that takes up much real estate on the internet. There are websites, apps, podcasts, books, courses, classes, institutes, facilities etc all about being more mindful.
