The harmful effects (and how to combat them) of technology are the focus of computer scientist Cal Newport’s new book Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World.
We live in a seemingly increasingly divisive world. We recognize that although none of the supposed dichotomies really align with THE dichotomy, it is far too easy for us to live as such.
The spaces in our homes are the places where we create meaning for ourselves and for our loved ones.
Another important question remains, though—in the realm of minimalism, why is it only a select culture of people who get to define what is and isn’t a healthy internal and external reality?
The roots of minimalism are well-founded; something must be done to stem the tide of thoughtless consumption which threatens to drown us all.
Minimalism is not about organizing or storing your stuff efficiently because simply storing or organizing does not address the root cause of why you have too much stuff in the first place.
