Enoughism, Essentialism, and Other Names for Minimalism

Sometimes people avoid minimalism because the word itself sounds extreme, radical, subversive; afraid of stepping outside cultural boundaries, these people avoid simplifying their lives because they don’t want the label: minimalist.

If minimalism seems too austere, you can re-label your flavor of simplification—and we suggest any of the following –isms:

Intentionalism
Enoughism
Essentialism
Selectivism
Curationism
Naturalism
Stoicism
Epicureanism
Appropriatism
Simplism
Lessism
Practicalism
Livingwithinyourmeansism

Any others? Create your own label and share it with us on Twitter using #SimpleLabel, and then see what other people are sharing.

Call it whatever you want: no matter which –ism you prefer, the only thing that matters is that it helps you live with intention. Just remember: labels help define you, but they are not you.
