Enablement and change
We will not draw any readers into a Marie Kondo, convert to minimalism tirade. However, I will call on the idea of simplicity. Minimalism is not for everyone. If you’ve ever been a collector of any kind, you will agree there are probably many versions of minimalists.
Simplicity, however, is a concept that may be adopted seasonally whether it’s a spring clean or eating a clean meal. Simplicity might be something people embrace in their clothing choices to reduce decision fatigue… turtlenecks or hoodies, anyone?
