Minimalism many times is described as the acting of letting go and making it simple! For sustainability that is really good because makes you rethink your values. .
Minimalism is very closely related with another trend: zero waste. Both lifestyles complement each other. Almost every person practicing zero waste is a minimalist, even if they don't realize! Once you consume less, you also produce less waste.
But that's another topic for another week. If you want to be more minimalist and try to cause less harm to the planet, what steps should you try to follow? Here they are: *Eliminate the unnecessary.
Minimalism does not mean living with nothing. You keep the essential items and what has personal value. The rest you can throw away (Don't forget to recycle and donate what you can)!
*Organize what you have.
Assign a place for everything you own, and make sure it’s easily accessible so you can keep track of where everything is and how much you have.
*Time. See how you're spending it. With what. With whom. Doing what.
Reevaluate your daily life and relationships with things and people. Keep the essential. Set your goals based on what really matters and with whom you'd like to share those experiences.
*Consume less. Before buying, think.
Do you really need that item? How long it will last? It is important for you? Can I just borrow it?
*Learn to relax.
Do one thing at a time. Learn to disconnect (this means phone and electronics too). Prioritize.
Those ate tips that focus mainly on the sustainability part. As we said, there's more to minimalism and if you are interested, there are books, Instagrams, YouTube videos and docs about it! Look for it and you'll find it! 😊

So on my yoga psychology path, I've been slowly digesting & savoring The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. And I'd love some insight, so if you're reading this post & are familiar with this text, please do help me out, because I've been mulling this point over & could really use some perspectives ✨In the first section of the text, Patanjali talks (among many other things) about the importance of practice & renunciation/non-attachment so that we can still the fluctuations of the mind, which is yoga. In the translation I have, non-attachment/renunciation is conceptualized as indifference toward desires, even though desires will always be latent within us. Here's the thing I'm struggling to conceptualize/process: I'm a passionate person, & I love being led by my desires. Not indiscriminately or irresponsibly or mindlessly, but allowing my core desires to give me grip & momentum toward my goals & dreams. Using them for traction, per @daniellelaporte. And having left the paradigm of a restrictive religious upbringing, I've totally hardcore rejected the idea that we should be afraid of our desires or that we should deprive ourselves or suppress them or ignore them. As long as whatever's in question fits within my ethical framework & fits with my priorities, I'm inclined to delight in this embodied existence & listen to my own heart's desires, giving them weight & honoring them deeply. Perhaps I'm misconceptualizing non-attachment in the text, or perhaps there's a better translation, etc. My heart is never going to be blasé about the tug of my it's deepest desires, & I'm more than okay with that. What are your thoughts?

Wow never knew about @leilanimunter until a friend shared today but she’s kind of a badass. I need a choosing to be #childfree women’s club here in LA as they are rare to find. Love my friends who have babies but this is my own personal choice. It’s great to see women going public about it as we get ridiculed by so many. “American professional racing driver Leilani Munter is leading the pack on population control by choosing to go child-free and claiming the decision should be ‘normalized.’ "Not having a child has been the biggest way for me to reduce my impact on the planet," Munter, 44, told Reuters on Wednesday. "If you look at the numbers, the Earth is finite, and the human race cannot keep growing infinitely with only so many resources. We need to normalize choosing being child-free," she added.
The United Nations estimates that the world population is growing by 83 million a year, with the number of people on the planet expected to hit 9.8 billion in 2050 from its current total of 7.6 billion now.” @childfreebychoice @respectfullychildfree @childfree.girl #childfreebychoice#sustainableliving#birthcontrol

- men mest af alt glæder jeg mig til, at vinduespudseren kommer forbi på torsdag, for for pokker, hvor er de ruder beskidte! 😂🤦🏼♀️
ENG: I am waiting for quite a few things to arrive - including a window cleaner, who should come by on Thursday 😂

It’s Testimony Tuesday!! Today is all about Panaway! This blend has Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove and Peppermint essential oils. It comes in your Starter Kit too! It’s amazing for tired muscles, head tension, after a workout, or even after holding a baby all day errrry day. #momlife I love to add it to a roller with Ortho Ease as the carrier oil. My hubby loveeeees this blend! It also has saved the day (or the night) for my children when their little legs are growing and aching in the middle of the night. I just add a drop to coconut oil, massage their little legs and they are off to sleepy land again.
🙌🏽Here’s a few other testimonies:
💙“Panaway is the oil that made my husband an oil believer and regular user! This oil is great for those hardworking men who need some relief after a long day of physical labor!”
💙“I use this and #valor on my neck/shoulders when I get muscle knots making it difficult to move. I am able to turn my head within a few minutes and when applied every few hours, I am usually back to normal within a day and a half. Before? I would suffer for at least three to four days and would have to go to a massage therapist and chiropractor to work it all out. It was the worst. This oil is a God send!”
💙“I rub this on my temples and the back of my neck when I have really back head tension. Normally I’ll lose my vision and have to lay down but using this has made all the difference.”
These @jococups even look cool in the box! Did you know that it’s hard to recycle most to-go hot coffee cups because they’re lined in plastic? About 60 BILLION of these cups end up in landfills every year! 🤯 Bringing your own cups to the coffee shop is one way to cut down on waste and still enjoy your favorite beverages. Some places might even give you a cup credit off of your order, and if they don’t- encourage them to!
