Blogger In San Diego To Talk About Minimalism, Simplifying
Courtney Carver, blogger, Be More with Less
Courtney Carver started simplifying her life to reduce stress.
She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006. In researching the disease, she found that managing it involved reducing stress.
Carver started with simplifying her diet and then moved on to reducing debt and clutter. She eventually moved from a large house to an apartment and quit her job.
Along the way, Carver began blogging about her journey.
Carver credits her lifestyle changes, in part, to not having had a multiple sclerosis relapse for nine years. She said her neurologist would agree.
Carver doesn't tend to use the term "minimalist" because she thinks it scares some people — but admits she could be called a minimalist.
"It is thinking about what you want and need in your life and choosing to live with those things and nothing in excess," Carver said.
Carver is in San Diego to speak about her journey and her minimalist fashion challenge, Project 333, which encourages people to dress with 33 items or less for three months.
Carver is speaking at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hera Hub Sorrento Valley. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Carver joins Midday Edition Thursday to talk about simplifying her life and why she promotes it as a lifestyle for others.
