Living Lightly with the One-Bag Lifestyle : zen habits / by Modern Adversary

An interesting experiment that Leo did.

I’ve been on a handful of long trips this year and in recent years, and on all those trips, I lived out of a small bag.

I loved living so lightly, but every time I came home, it felt weird: all of a sudden I had about 10x more stuff. It didn’t feel in alignment with the light, minimal lifestyle.

So after a 25-day trip to Asia last month, I came home with a mission: to live only out of the same bag I traveled with.

I often feel the same. I travel light and after weeks on the road, it does feel a little strange.
