Minimal Year Outline

So far this is what my year is going to look like:

  1. January - No spending
  2. February- Minimal travel
  3. March- Zero waste 
  4. April- Minimal internet
  5. May- No subways/driving
  6. June- Minimalist cooking  
  7. July- Minimal indoor time 

These are not finalized other than the first 3 months, so feel free to suggest any ideas for the remaining months (or edits). If you have an idea for a Minimal Month challenge, let me know! It's highly likely I'll make it happen :)

My goal in doing this is to be intentional about each day. To be mindful and connected to nature and my surroundings as much as possible. When I was a little girl I used to love playing outside with worms after it rained. I felt at home in nature. Now I live in New York City, and I have grown to love it here. But I often feel disconnected from nature. Through each of these challenges, I am not only decreasing my environmental impact tremendously, but I am feeling more connected to natural parts of the world. Less plastic, less toxins, less screen time. More time, more nature, more love, more freedom.

P.S. If you would like to join me in any of these month long challenges, I would love to have a buddy! Just shoot me an email at
