Hi.

Welcome to the Practical Minimalists.  We host a podcast where we discuss intentional living and what it means to have freedom with less.  We are also a community, so feel free to connect with us on social media! Wishing you peace, wonder, and joy....and the freedom that comes with less.

4 things that are giving us Freedom with Less NOW

4 things that are giving us Freedom with Less NOW

We talk about freedom with less pretty much every episode.  But what does that mean?  To us it’s freedom from whatever it is that keeps us from being who we are fully or distracts us from living the lives we truly want to be living.  There are some things in our lives that support us in our quest for freedom with less and here are the things that are saving our lives right now:

 

1. Baths

 

We are both big bath lovers.  It’s a whole thing.  Not only can baths be lovely, luxurious, and beautiful smelling experience, but they can be a great way to clear your mind and be free from distraction.  You may have heard Eryn talk about bath bombs which is how she prefers to dress up her bath.  You can purchase our favorite ones HERE, but if you’re in a DIY mood you can try out Eryn's recipe. 

 

2. Books

 

Books.  We are both avid readers.  We love books because they can both provide an escape when you need it but they can also keep you curious, make you think, and challenge your beliefs.  Here are some books we are loving right now:  

 

To escape: Penny Reid Romance; to start try this one.  

 

To make you think: The Untethered Soul, Deep Work, Chasing Slow or the Universe Has Your Back

 

3. Our Diffusers

 

If you listen to the show, you know we are essential oil junkies.  A few years ago we both ditched candles for essential oil diffusers and have since discovered all sorts of benefits from diffusing oils aside from their pleasant aroma.  Having a diffuser around helps us have freedom from stress, anxiety and worry.  Having something every diffusing helps support feelings of connectedness, grounded-ness, and calm.  One of our favorite diffusers right now is this one. 

 

4. Voxer

 

Voxer is one of the most wonderful apps in the world.  Voxer brings us time and joy.  I mean, how can you go wrong.  If you don’t know what Voxer is, you can check it out here.  Basically it’s a way to talk to your friends without actually calling them in real time.  I mean, who wants to do that?  What is this 2006??
