“The things you, own end up owning you…” – Tyler Durden (Fight Club). Often times the things we work so hard for end up taking more than the give, the bleed us more than they feed us. It might be the new car, the drawer full of electronics, your pets or even an oversized home; in many cases, our possessions become burdens and we need to take a step back and reevaluate our priorities. On this week’s, Yoga Talk Show, we’ll dive deep into minimalism, the art of doing more with less, clearing the clutter, and living a life on purpose.
Listen & Learn:
- Why you might want to pack your stuff up as if moving, and then only unpack the stuff you actually need
- Why our consumer-driven culture can lead to a life full of discontent
- How less stuff can mean more time, more money, and more ability to contribute
- How to digitally clean up your life as well
