Here Matt D'Avella (THE Minimalism guy who produced the award winning documentary on Netflix) talks about gaining habits for life. He mentions a method which I think is very handy, and can be used when learning anything.
With habits, especially around the new year time, it is easy to pick up too many things too fast, so he suggests just one thing, for THIRTY days.
I tried this with something simple at first (drinking the right amount of water each day), and think it has helped me immensely!
While it isn't necessarily 'minimalist' directly, the habits you have may contribute to a more minimalistic lifestyle :)
