Selim Tolga is a world-renowned minimalist philosophy coach. He insists that we should be able to get by with only the necessary things in life. This is not just domestic items and gadgets but also food, clothes, and holidays. The life of the minimalist is also environmental; their behavior doesn’t have an impact on nature or other living creatures. And this, Selim says, can bring happiness.
