This is episode 14 and today I’m here with Denaye Barahona Ph.D. talking about minimalism.
Adventure of the Week
I share the magical forest theater where we hiked and saw Peter Pan with our friends.
Minimalism: We share what minimalism really is and what it looks like for us.
Parenting: I talk about how minimalism is a strong strand that is woven throughout natural parenting.
Time: We share how we embrace unbusy.
Playscape: We go over how we take a minimalist approach to playscape design.
Ownership: We cover how we navigate ownership in our family culture.
Role Modeling: You know we’re tackling how powerful role modeling is in shifting your family toward minimalism.
Boundaries: We share how having some physical boundaries helps to limit and contain clutter.
Extended Family: We offer some advice for navigating relationships with extended family or friends who don’t get minimalism.
We tackle this question from Noelle: “I find navigating minimalism joyful and freeing for myself. I find living with a non-minimalist husband and children less joyful. The living with them part is wonderful. Their stuff is harder on me! I would love to learn how to enjoy a minimalist home in a “blended” family.”
