I have become very very interested in minimalism.There seem to be a lot of minimalism blogs. I think it is like most things- you need to look at the bigger picture and take what is best for you.
For me that is de-cluttering like mad and thinking what makes me calm and happy.
I had a major clear out of the conservatory and ended up with a calm serene place where I sit and do nothing.
Sitting and watching the garden and the birds but doing nothing is good.
