Take a 30 Day Minimalism Challenge (Small Habits, Big Changes)

30 day minimalism challenge for more time and energy

Today I give you a little guide to getting started with minimalism. It's 30 things to do in 30 days, just one day a time. Nice and simple. I think you will find benefits at the end of it all, and hopefully habits you will then carry on in your life on a regular basis. Good luck!

Why Take Part In A 30-Day Minimalism Challenge?

The 30-day minimalism challenge is meant to provide an easy way for youto kickstart your journey towards a minimalist lifestyle. By practicing and taking part in some of the core principles of minimalism on a day by day basis for a month, it will allow you to hopefully see the benefits, rather than feeling overwhelmed of where to begin.

You will also see if some of it is not for you, which is okay. As I have said many times, minimalism is not a one size fits all concept. Take what you like and enjoy and that you feel will enhance your life, and if some of it you feel is not sustainable for you, then that is perfectly fine, just move on! It is about trying new habits on a small scale and hopefully bringing it into your life whenever necessary.

By taking on the 30-day minimalism challenge, you will experience a sense of liberation and empowerment. Letting go of excess possessions and commitments can be freeing and create space for new opportunities and experiences. You will also find that they have more time and energy to focus on what truly matters to you.
