Six Simple Habits that Have Transformed My Life

As I’m sure you already know, recently I opened my recycled and upcycled online shop. This is something I was working toward for a period of six months. It is very satisfying to be able to reach a goal. This satisfaction occurs regardless of whether the goal is a perceived success or not. The joy comes from knowing that a goal can be worked towards and completed. It’s a test of hard work and resilience. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I have been reaching a lot of goals lately, and I’ve been thinking about how I have done that. The reality is that my life has really been transformed over the last couple years, and today I would like to share a video on six simple habits that have really changed my life.

In the video below I discuss minimalism, morning routines, negative self talk and other aspects of life which have contributed to an overall change in my attitude.

Over the last week I have also posted part two of my South West vlog. If you’ve ever wondered what I do on all those road trips, you’re welcome to come on the adventure with me!

Part 1

Part 2

I will also be making another Q&A video in May. If you haven’t yet given me a question, I encourage you to do so! It can be related to the topics I have mentioned here today, or anything else at all.

Check out my YouTube channel for new videos about minimalism every week. Follow me on Instagram, where I record my minimalist outfits. Check me out on Facebook for resources and updates. I also have a Patreon account, where I post additional content weekly.

  1. A minimalist myself. a very recognizable video. Definitely would stress your first item. And for the last one I would also say: do not listing to your own negativity, but also not to those of friends or family. Even if well intended, they want you to stay who you are – but you have to grow. Only listen to outsiders who have no personal relationship with you.

  2. “This satisfaction occurs regardless of whether the goal is a perceived success or not. The joy comes from knowing that a goal can be worked towards and completed. It’s a test of hard work and resilience. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” I REALLY like this attitude, and I find it really helpful as I think about my own goals. (1. Restarting my jazz band, 2. Opening my own online and/or physical space for buying and selling quality second hand goods and upcycling in general.) Thanks for checking out my blog by the way. I love yours! I’m really inspired, and thinking about maybe trying a 50 item wardrobe as my next project, after doing a year of no clothes buying. Thanks for the ideas and the inspiration and good example you’re setting in terms of reducing/reusing/recycling and minimising. Love your work 🙂
