60 Day Minimalist Challenge: Starting Out

Back in January, I came across a vlog about minimalism during a late night YouTube session; which for once hadn’t lead me to a dark and strange corner of the internet.

 

 

It might be something to do with turning 40 (well, 41), but I feel the need to free myself of distractions and focus on what is  important to me.

My previous attempts to make time for my writing had been constantly stalled by distractions; household chores, unfinished and much-postponed tidying, sorting and DIY.

I am unlikely to ever be a minimalist, but this challenge seems like a good way to declutter the house, and simplify my life so I can prioritise my writing. Plus, I’ve always been a fan of multitasking; blogging about each task will mean I am getting some writing done too.

A saying I’ve come across (in my interest in all things Scandinavian) which fits well with the concept of minimalism is …just enough

It’s so easy to get caught up on what we don’t have, always wanting more, that we forget to be grateful for what we do have.

Okay, I went off track a bit there; not very minimalist of me. Having a quick glance through the next 60 days’ tasks, I doubt I will be able to complete everything in full in the allotted time.  I have decades accumulated belongings hoarded throughout the house (not all of them my own), but this will at least give me a starting point.

Here goes…
