I don't know if I've mentioned this, but one of the things I'm trying to implement in my life is more minimalism.
At first glance minimalism causes people to think of getting rid of almost everything and living out of a backpack, I assure you it's not as drastic as that.
If you follow the link I added, you'll land on a page that sums it up like this:
To my mind, minimalism is a hugely important part of living a sustainable lifestyle because it asks us to rethink our relationship to the stuff of consumerism.
Which is why, when I heard this podcast, I loved so many of the points it made about our relationship with money, status, debt, and identity. I think there are some important ideas there about why we spend the way we do, what money means to us, and things we need to understand in order to better get ahold of our relationship with things and the role consumerism plays in our society.
I think it's worth a listen if these things are up your alley. And probably even more so if they're not. Just saying...
