Are you feeling overwhelmed in your teaching or home life? Minimalism could be the answer! Minimalism can reduce more than physical clutter, it can help with mental clutter, too. It can reduce stress, improve organization, and make your life calmer. This could be the solution to work/life balance you've been looking for.

Most experts in the minimalism field agree that author Joshua Becker explained minimalism perfectly with this definition: The intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.

A minimalist teacher utilizes the basic principles of minimalism to help “declutter” their classroom, mind, and teaching, in order to better focus on what matters most. A minimalist teacher values the act of learning and enjoys the process because they aren’t as caught up in collecting proof. That’s not to say that a minimalist teacher doesn’t comply with what is required or that they reject accountability, it just means that their perspective is changed by their renewed focus on the necessities.
