All in Minimalism
Advertising infiltrates almost every aspect of our lives. The noise of consumerism seems impossible to avoid. I’ve implemented these seven strategies to minimize the effects of the material world.
My friend Andrea sent me a link to a 21-Day Mindfulness Challenge hosted by Kind Spring that starts on September 2. Since school started a few weeks ago, we've both been running around to various meetings, planning lessons, grading, and teaching. We've both commented on how sometimes we lose focus on what's most important.
I'm really glad Andrea sent me this link because this challenge seems achievable.
The basic premise is that I will receive a daily email from Kind Spring inviting me to perform one small daily action that relates to mindfulness. The website describes the process: "Every day for three weeks a unique idea is emailed out that serves as a prompt. Participants are encouraged to carry out the act and share stories of their experiences in both online and offline spaces."
