We´ve been hearing a lot this last months about essentialism. It got our attention and started reading all about it and we got so into it we even got inspired by it for our Spring 2016 Lookbook. But what is it really about? Well, we´ll give you a little something to get you into it.
Essentialism is the art of getting rid of all the external noise and focusing on your internal voice. But it´s not just a tactical movement or a planned thing to do every day, it is a way of life.
We live in a world consumed by the idea of wanting and having more to the point that we have forgotten what is really important. Work more so you can have a bigger house; say yes so you can have a better life; do more so you can get recognized; and the list goes on. We have become so focused on these material things that we forget who we really are, and we forget how to be us and be with us. We are consumed by the idea of pursuing more.
But there is a way to overcome this modern society problem: changing the way we think. Adopting a mindset of recognizing what is really important and only doing the things that are essential. So give it a try. It might be difficult at first, but if you manage to do it for a few days, you will notice a big change in your life. You will notice all the unnecessary things you wasted your time thinking and worrying about and you will have more peaceful days.
