Everyday Minimalism

In today’s episode, Mike and Eric talk us through the practicality and benefits of minimalism in our everyday life.

The concept of minimalism extends far beyond physical possessions. It relates to thoughts in our head, media that we consume, activities on our social calendar, or anything else that requires our mental energy. Each of these things divides our attention while taking up our limited time and energy. With minimalism, we can learn to let go of things that no longer serve us in order to give our undivided attention to the things that do. Mike and Eric discuss how these simple minimalist principles can make an impact in your everyday life.
