The Busy Boycott Challenge Introduction

Minimalism | Simple Living | The Busy Boycott Challenge

I’m not sure if my hammering headache or the thudding of the rain outside my window is louder. Either way, the constant drumming rhythm is adding to my exhaustion.

Between an overbearing workload, my never-ending move, and my incomplete graduate school applications, I am feeling overworked and overwhelmed. But I am tired of letting business run me down.

This Fall, I want to make a change. This Fall, I am participating in the Busy Boycott.

The Busy Boycott Challenge 2018

While reading one of my favorite minimalism blogs, Be More With Less, I came across the Busy Boycott. Be More With Less is a wonderful blog written and run by Courtney Carver. Her blog focuses on simple living and investing time in the things in life that matter to you.

Like other minimalist advocates, Courtney provides tips for decluttering and organizing your life. However, the core purpose of her blog is to inspire people to live intentional lives. She describes what it means to be more with less:

Be more you. Give yourself all the space, time and love to remember who you are. Living with less clutter, busyness, and stress will help you make the room to do what you need to do. Simplifying my life gave me the space, time, and love to be more me, and the following practices led me back.

Like so many others, I want to have time to do the things that I am most passionate about. I don’t want to spend hours working through to-do lists and busy tasks.

I was intrigued when I saw Courtney post about the Busy Boycott Challenge. The Busy Boycott is a free, 21-day challenge that takes place from September 10th – 30th.

One great aspect to this challenge is the ability to participate no matter where you live or what your current situation is like.

Why the Busy Boycott?

No matter where you’re based or what your ultimate goal is, the Busy Boycott is meant to inspire you to break free from the business epidemic plaguing society. Throughout the course, participants will have access to a private Facebook group, live Q&A sessions with Courtney, and email resources.

Because I don’t want this post to be a thousand words, I am going to delve into Week #1’s challenge and insights in my next blog post. As recently promised, I will be delving into my major decluttering & minimalism journey.

    1. Whoops! That was an error on my part – this challenge ran through the 30th (I’ve since updated this)! It was definitely eye opening to see just how much business (particularly from work) was dominating my life / my conversations. Thanks for your comment. ☺️
