Lately I’ve been getting a lot of requests from friends about our family’s minimalism or slow living journey, and where to start. There’s a lot of my heart in this topic, so I’ll be starting a new series posting once a week, or every other week about a different “type” of minimalism, and how our family of five relates.
To begin our series I’m going to offer up some of my favorite minimal/slow living social accounts to follow, books, and beginning tips. As we continue, please remember that this process looks different for EVERYONE. Some might have a slow living mindset, but a house full of “clutter”. Or an environmental minimalist – who purchases ethically made clothing from small businesses, recycles, and tries to keep low impact footsteps on the Earth. Each journey contains chapters, so please encourage and inspire here, friends.
Here are a handful of my favorite overall minimalist blogs/social media accounts:
Becoming Minimalist | Facebook + Blog.
Hippie In Disguise | Facebook + Blog.
Global Guardian Project | Facebook + Website.
Cloistered Away | Facebook + Blog.
My Tiny Tribe | Instagram.
Veronika G Photography | Instagram.
Eco Minimalism | Instagram + Blog.
Dancey Pants Disco | Instagram + Blog.
Sugar House Workshop | Instagram + Blog.
While the above provided TONS of inspiration and starting grounds – I also read the following books:
The Life-Changing Magic of Cleaning Up | Marie Kondo
Clutterfree with Kids | Joshua S. Becker
Simplify | Bill Hybels
The Best Yes | Lysa TerKeurst
Love Does | Bob Goff
In the coming weeks I’ll be breaking down slow living + minimalism by each category our family has taken on. Once the post is made, I’ll tag back to this page so you can follow along.
My hope is you’d become even just slightly inspired to make an impact in your own journey – and the lives of others, with this series.
