Welcome to my minimalist life where I share my adventures in living simply.

20 Questions for a Minimalist Mindset

The minimalist mindset is the key to creating a life of freedom. The most significant factor in changing your life is changing your mindset.

This is something I had to learn when I began my journey. Every action is tied to a thought, be it conscious or subconscious.

If you don't change how you think about the clutter in your life, you may find yourself back at the starting line after all of your hard work to declutter.

If you have not started the minimizing process, if you are in the midst and have found yourself stuck, or if you have made significant headway and want to go further into the minimalist lifestyle, these questions are for you.

I have compiled a list of 20 questions to help you probe your thought patterns and answer questions that may arise as you declutter your life.
