Follow Bettina Deda’s journey through the Simple Year 2017. This month, she reflects on her relationships and shares five tips to show that you care.
One morning in early January, I opened my email inbox and found an email from the Minimalists, two American guys, whose writing on minimalism and living a simpler life I followed since 2014. In this email, they promoted the online programme A Simple Year 2017, a year of guided simplicity to make space for the important things in your life. I learned that there would be a new topic each month, such as clutter, food, money, relationships, and busyness, presented by a specialist in this area. When I read through the description on the website, I had the sudden realisation that this is what I would do. I listened to my body and signed up on the same day.
