Q: Isn’t minimalism boring or too sparse, with nothing in your life?

A: This is a misconception about minimalism — that it’s necessarily monk-like, empty, boring, sterile. Not at all. Well, it can be, if you go in that direction, but I don’t advocate that flavor of minimalism. Instead, we are clearing away all but the most essential things — to make room for that which gives us the most joy. Clear away the distractions so we can create something incredible. Clear away all the obligations so we can spend time with loved ones. Clear away the noise so we can concentrate on inner peace, on spirituality (if we wish), on our thinking. As a result, there is more happiness, peace, and joy, because we’ve made room for these things.

Plenty of interesting articles there. Talk about less consumerism (saving more money), less eating (you won't get overweight), less driving (less air polution), etc

Of course, the author is an American, so he write them from an American point of view. And of course, the things he write are not strict rules (you can suit them to your own need).

Well, sometimes "less" is "more". I think it's a good way to embrace such life style Smile

That kinda clashes with "to make room for that which gives us the most joy", though... Razz

i just want to share one view with one example,

the more and less concept is actually a perception, imo

eg,

you got one empty room, so you got lots of space,

then you start fill in furnitures, books, that occupy those empty space,

so, the more stuffs you bring into the room, the less space you got,

we merely change what inside a room (or, whatever on this planet earth)
there is nothing more, nothing less,

it just a changing process, an experience.

Isn't reading FAQs about minimalism against minimalism?

It's our nature, to mess everything up, even through minimalism..

nowadays, we just need a laptop connected to the internet via wifi in order to survive. it is a sort of minimalism.

Err...right.
Well, we don't have to be minimalist at everything, I guess.
At least we try at one or two. Smile

i disagree:
minimalist feeding for just enough and healthy, minimalist movement, 1-2 horus sex daily, chaning partners, as much science to be done as possible.
