Kristen Ziegler is a professional organizer and owner of her own company, Minima. With over ten years of combined experience in the organization and design fields, she delivers spaces that are both functional and beautiful. In her talk, she explained that minimalism isn't necessarily an aesthetic (though she does subscribe to the "less is more" philosophy), but rather, a holistic approach to life. At the heart of it, Kristen taught us that minimalism is really about "living a mindful, intentional life - giving a great deal of thought to every single object, person and commitment you make space for." In that sense, we have the opportunity to maximize each and every moment that makes up our lives.
