Joshua & Ryan discuss whether nostalgia is useful or dangerous, and they answer the following questions: How do you determine which sentimental items to keep, and how do you ensure that you don’t apply that sentimentality to everything else? Is it okay for an aspiring minimalist to keep a small container of sentimental items as a time capsule? How did you let go of yearbooks? Is there a healthy form of nostalgia, or is it inherently useless to hold onto the past? How does nostalgia impact historical awareness, and how will minimalism change that in the future? Does nostalgia have a place in today’s world? Detailed show notes: minimalists.com/podcast.
