I came across another video that I thought was an interesting take on minimalism. This one talked also about applying minimalism to the mind.

Hey Dave, great topic, and loved the videos!  Have long been a fan of Japanese minimalism, and always admired their dedication to order, simplicity and nature.  While I can’t say I have achieved the simplicity of owning just 150 things, I have progressed toward owning only what I need and use on a regular basis.
