Still gushing (and recovering) from our amazing #snapworkshop this Saturday with @annenbergspace. Got to meet and hang out with so many amazing creatives and entrepreneurs. Such an honor.
Despite the mounds of work on my plate right now, I decided to take the day (mostly) off and just rest. It's not an easy decision to genuinely care for myself in this way when there's still so much to be done, but I'm thankful for the trust and confidence to do it anyways.
I spent most of the day on the couch resting my eyes between watching the new @davechapelle show on #netflix
How do you love to unplug and rest?

Almost every Monday I have to give myself a pep-talk that goes something like this: Everything is okay. This is the life you want to live and you wouldn't have it any other way. You're only stressed over the things you love doing so take the time to enjoy the process and shift to gratitude.
Can anyone else relate to needing a Monday mantra?

Comparison is the thief of joy. We’ve all heard this before, but when it comes to minimalism, its kind of the whole point. Everyone’s brand of minimalism is going to look different because we are all different, so getting comfortable with our own selves is crucial. The trick is to mindfully evaluate and align yourself with the things that add meaning and value to your life.
For today’s challenge we want to know, what is one (or more!) area of your life that you can embrace your own personal brand of minimalism and release the judgment of yourself and the worry about what other people think.
For me (Kelsey) one of my biggest minimalist breakthroughs was realizing that I LOVE a “uniform wardrobe”. In my life that means is that almost all of my clothes are unapologetically black and I literally wear variations of 1-2, sometimes 3 clothing combos pretty much every single day. In a Pinterest and fashion blog world, this was a very mindful decision that took a long time to come around to. But once I did, I realized it was what I’ve been longing for almost my whole life: to feel great in everything I wear and never have to think about it.

Minimalism is the belief that everything in our lives should bring meaning and add value. And, if it doesn’t then it’s time to let it go. This is such a powerful concept in our ultra-consumerist society.

We can all use a little more meaning and value in our lives, so today, we want to know 2 things:
1) one thing you already have that brings great value to your life (think lifestyle choices, friends and family, hobbies that make you come alive, etc.)
2) one thing in your life currently that is weighing you down that you can let go of to create more space for meaning and value.
For me (Kelsey) my #1 is definitely yoga. My practice does so much to create space, gratitude, and inner strength that benefits the rest of my life. My #2 is judgment -I want to trade in my judgment of myself and others for curiosity and compassion.
As a reminder, today is the second day of our #RealWealthChallenge to celebrate our upcoming #SnapWorkshop in partnership with @AnnenbergSpace hang out with us all week to explore what real wealth looks and feels like + get a chance to win FREE tickets to the workshop happening 4/22.
