More stuff, more gossip, more sex and less minimalism. Meditation? Just stop it. Consent before sex? Yeah, but also no. Declutter your house? Meh. According to writer Becca Rothfeld, we need to ditch the oppressive sterility and celebrate disruption, imbalance, obsession, rapture and chaos. Embrace the mess and disorder in your life and dare surrender to your desires!
