About The Minimalist Father

So you want to know more about me? Well, I am the Minamilist Father. I am 40 years old and reside in London with my partner and 9-year-old child. My main expertise is  not getting ready to go out until literally 5 minutes before my partner says she will be ready, which means I will have at least 20 minutes minimum.

Here are 5 random facts about me:

- I only wear odd socks.

- I hate being clean-shaven, so I never am!

- I like most of my food slightly burned. The crispier, the better.

- I once slept on a train, meaning I missed my stop and ended up in Wales at 3 a.m. 162 miles from where I was meant to be.

- My biggest pet peeve is when someone stops and stands still to look at their phone in a crowded place.

On this blog I will be talking about subjects such as minimalism, mental health, fitness and finances.

I have practised minimalism for as long as I can remember, even when I was young. Looking back, I did it without obviously realising it at the time. I have helped others around me with regards to minimalism and am a self-proclaimed expert on budgeting and saving. (I'm probably not, but I like to tell myself that.)

I am also passionate about mental health issues, and especially certain stigmas related around it, and while people are definitely more open now to discussing mental health issues, unfortunately a lot of stigmas still remain, especially among males. I have suffered mental health issues my whole life and care deeply around the issues.

I have also been in the fitness industry for over 20 years so enjoy talking about fitness and incorporating it into a busy lifestyle as a father.

I do hope you will read this blog and learn about things you can incorporate into your life to hopefully make it better and more positive. Please help supporting the site by sharing any content you enjoy :)

I also have a sister site about frugal living if you want some money saving tips on certain things.
