Forget everything you think you know about minimalism and get ready for an education on liberating yourself from the physical and emotional clutter that’s no longer serving you. Christine Platt, author of The Afrominimalist’s Guide to Living with Less, joins me today to chat about the true meaning of minimalism, the best ways to approach letting go of what is no longer serving us, and living more intentionally than ever before.
Only holding on to the things you need, use, and love may sound like a no-brainer…until you look around at the give or take 300,000 (that’s right) objects in the average home. What’s the harm in overconsumption? Think time, energy, and the emotional labor you could be imposing on future loved ones. I know this sounds like quite the undertaking, which is why I’m so glad Christine is here with us today to prove how attainable a mindful life with less can be.
Christine Platt is a modern-day renaissance woman also known as The Afrominimalist. She holds a B.A. in Africana Studies, M.A. in African-American Studies, and J.D. in General Law. An award-winning author of over two dozen literary works, Christine’s most recent book, The Afrominimalist’s Guide to Living with Less, is a radical re-envisioning of minimalism that focuses on authenticity over aesthetics. A resource for anyone seeking to discover the truth behind their overconsumption as well as how to let go of what no longer serves them, The Afrominimalist’s Guide to Living with Less encourages us to be intentional, mindful consumers so our lives are filled with only those things we need, use, and love.
