When I first decided to embrace a more minimal lifestyle I thought there would be some set in stone rules to follow. What I've found with more and more research is there is not. Everyone's definition of minimalism is different and everyone practices minimalism in a different way. This was really good news for me because I am not quite ready to give up my 65-piece Starbucks "You are Here" mug collection!
If a person with anxiety could stop feeling anxious trust me, we would. The feeling that something is wrong with you when there isn't visible proof is the worst feeling in the world! During my worst days, I would wish I had an injury that people could see and I could treat externally because then I'd know it was really there and I wasn't just crazy.
