Hi. I’m Anousheh. If you’re new, welcome to Minimalist Vision.
I am a 90s kid, a psychologist, and live in Germany. I started this blog because of my huge passion for minimalism, self-development, and personal finance. This blog is all about guiding you to a simplified and sustainable life, where you love the things you own and your possessions don’t own you.
It all started with a Ted Talk I saw 5 years ago from “The Minimalists”. I had lived on my own for 3 years and started accumulating all kinds of stuff, things I thought you needed in a grown-up household, things I didn’t even know how to use and why (I’m talking about you, slow cooker!). Basically, there was clutter everywhere and it was starting to stress me out. It didn’t help that at the time I was also struggling with anxiety and panic attacks.
So I started getting rid of stuff and realized: This isn’t as easy as I thought. Where do I even start? What do I do with the stuff I don’t want anymore? Do I really need to keep all of my IKEA receipts? During this process – and this process is still ongoing – my mindset toward things changed drastically. And on this journey, I was able to inspire many others to overthink their possessions and spending habits.
While helping friends declutter their basements, moving all of my parents‘ stuff from one house to another, and talking to so many people about a minimalist, sustainable lifestyle, I soon realized the value of a guideline for those steps towards a more simple life.
A life where you don’t have to tidy every day because there is not as much stuff to tidy up.
A life where all the things you own actually have value to you and spark joy (of course there had to be a Marie Kondo reference in here).
And a life, where you only spend your hard-earned money on things that enrich your life in a positive way.
