Hello Hive,
It's @millycf1976 here, introducing you to a new place for you to share content.

The MINIMALIST Community

PSX_20211214_152838.jpg


Minimalism is a principle/preference that's innate to some persons, or it's an appreciation/practice that's developed for others.

Minimalism helps to free the mind and facilitates a sense of peacefulness and calm; zen energy.
Living a minimalistic lifestyle involves buying only the necessary things, and only keeping possessions that are in use. It also involves having an appreciation for quality over quantity, and keeping things pure and simple; A spartan approach to luxury, and also things that are subdued and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.


My Inspiration for this Community

A Minimalistic lifestyle adopts different principles and many elements to it have proven to be beneficial to my well-being.

If you follow my account, you might be aware of my simplistic off-grid lifestyle; and I have been studying and practicing Yoga and Qi Gong, two alternative remedies that go far beyond physical benefits, and deep into elevating my spiritual awareness. Both practices teach principles that encourage minimalism towards life; inclusive of thoughts, personal needs, respect for the body, letting go of material goods, expectations and attachment to people, conservation of physical energy, and natural resources of the environment.
In essence, minimalism creates space, which allows me to live a simple, fulfilling, and purposeful life with intention.

With that in mind,The Minimalist community was created as a designated place for persons to share all aspects of minimalism.

This is a new independent community that's designed to host and produce quality and informative content on the blockchain. I hope authors will contribute quality posts (great images, content, and short titles), that will catch the eyes of curators across Hive.
Thus there should be community growth and proof that it is worthy of support and value to everyone.


To kick things off, here's my first post to the community.
I invite you all to get involved and share your stories about minimalism, and perhaps you would like to invite someone?


There are some preferred tags below to be used as a guideline and inspiration for content.

Keep it Simple & Smart!

Have fun and see you around.
Thank you!

Hi @millycf1976, awesome, I'm excited to share minimalist topics and stories. I have always been a minimalist since I was a child but only found the possibility to express it when I gained my independence and had my personal space. Cheers to the new community 🍷

Hi @discoveringarni, thank you very much 😊
I'm looking forward to great topics and content from you.
I'm happy you got the way to live and apply minimalism to your life. Otherwise, you would have felt dead on the inside!

"I'm happy you got the way to live and apply minimalism to your life. Otherwise, you would have felt dead on the inside!"

It was the best decision we made to leave the yellow house and even reduce. It feels a lot better. I still have some more stuff to let go but I'm just procrastinating. Maybe 2022 will kick my b*tt to finally do it lol

Yeah, it was a nice house, but probably a waste of space and money when you think about it.
I think your new environment is better especially for Anaïs.
Maybe 2022 will do the trick...no stress though :)

Hello @millycf1976, great idea! I'd consider myself a minimalist, at least I try to be, so I'm looking forward to some good content in this community. I hope I'll be able to contribute when I can.

Hello @caseygrimley, the fact that you consider yourself a minimalistic is good enough. As they say, it's the thought that counts. No one is perfect, but you seem to have the right mindset:)
I'm looking forward to seeing you around :)

Thank you very much:)
That's great news, and I look forward to seeing you around!
I think a minimalist approach is so important not only to the current climate, but to life in general.
We humans have done a tremendous job at complicating our lives, and it's time for us to strip things back, I believe.

Hello @mrprofessor, thanks for your kind feedback.😊
I was surprised too that there wasn't a minimalist community, and I have wanted to launch it for sometime. I had the idea at the same time I launched Cinnamon Cup Coffee, but I needed to get one up and fully running first.
It's been a year now, and I think Minimalism is so crucial in these times.
I'm looking forward to learning your stance on the subject; I think it's something we all can learn more from each other.
Woud be nice if you write something on one of these topics, or feel free to go ahead and stop by the community at anytime.
Have a great day:)

Yey, I'll be around for sure. Let's see if I come up with something for the contest. It'll be a challenge since it's a subject I don't usually think about; it's more of a natural thing in my life, to reject consumerism, hoarding stuff etc

😊 That's even more awesome that you are a natural anti-consumerist 👍
