Episode 1277: The 4 Reasons You're Holding Onto Possessions That Don't Matter by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog

Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

in your daily life to me minimalism means cutting what is it necessary reducing the number of items i on this includes limiting purchases quality items that i genuinely need man thinking critically about whether something that is commonplace is actually something that i need or want and sometimes answer is yes but a lot of times it's no i decided we didn't need extravagant seized on declarations or several pairs of bedsheet step would usually sit on a shelf or not being used or a whole block of knives when two to three sizes will do earlier this year i died a car load like suv size of clothing that had saved for years the dress who are shorter than i would wear now but i had spent good money on them so i had trouble letting them go until i did i'm never thought of them again we become attached possessions for one or more reasons here if you re
