About

Welcome to Simplified Mind! This is where I share my journey about simplifying my life through decluttering my thoughts and actions. I believe that the essence of being more productive is having mental clarity. I want to do less of the things that don’t matter and be more focused on the present. Identifying the ‘WHYs” of action brings an awareness that will allow us to have mental clarity about the things that we do.

In my journey of simplifying my life through my thought process, I apply most of the principles I am learning from Minimalism, Essentialism, Existentialism with the integration of my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

I discovered Minimalism last 2016 where life has been too challenging for me. I was working as a Math teacher when I started my journey in pursuing my master’s in counseling. Things have been very tough since a lot of things in my life had happened and I need a proper headspace to process my own healing journey as I am learning to become a wounded healer. Minimalism has allowed me to ask difficult questions in my life that lead me to a deeper understanding of myself.

“How might your life be better with less?” – The Minimalists

It has been a question that I ask myself until today. Minimalism has truly added an immense value in my life which led me to be more mindful of what I take into my life. As I have pursued minimalism, I have learned to let go of the things which don’t add value to my life as I started seeing clearly about the things that I truly value.

Relationships. Health. Creativity. Growth. Contribution.

Having mental clarity about what I truly value led me to be more mindful and focused about where my life is heading to.

I hope you would find value in my journey. If you want to stay connected with me, you can subscribe to my monthly newsletter as I give updates about my blog.
