10/10 recommend

It’s been less than a month since I first heard your podcast. Needless to say, I’m hooked. It adds value to my “doing nothing” time. It makes me realise there’s a lot to learn and adopt. I’m taking on one bad habit at a time to make deliberate changes to my lifestyle. Its effects encourage me to look forward to a new day as a new beginning.

I love everything about it!!

Its one of the best podcasts i listen to.
Everything about it is great and the way Rayn and Joshua answer those questions its quite Inspiring and satisfactory.
They already have convinced me about embracing minimalism and why its so important to let stuff be just “stuff” and not try to fill the voids in our life with stuff, instead reaching out to people and having wonderful experiences with them enjoying and living each moment is what makes us truly happy and adding value to someone’s life. As in Joshua’s words “Living a meaningful life is what makes us happy”
Thank you guys for sharing this wonderful message to the world.
