before i shifted to the minimalist lifestyle, i did a ton of research to make sure i was getting the idea behind it and to ensure i did it right. here are the tops tips i have for those of you who want to adopt the minimalist lifestyle –
decluttering is not just cleansing for your home, but also cleansing for your soul. getting rid of duplicates and keeping items based on utility is the main concept that minimalists follow. for me, i followed a konmari challenge (let me know if you want a post about this), which aided immensely in the removal of clutter from my home.
the minimalist lifestyle promotes healthy and smart life habits. its a lifestyle, and therefore, encompasses every single area in your life. from smart work habits to healthy eating habits to empowering dressing habits – minimalism has it all. do a bit of research to find what routines suit you and start implementing them since minimalist living focuses on you as an individual and your growth as well.
the main tip i have for those of you who are starting out is to be more productive. minimalism provides you with ample time for hobbies and work. it’s far too easy to slack off when you have such a great amount of time, however, if you do so, you won’t be able to follow the lifestyle. instead, make use of the time given wisely.
smart productivity, not simply ‘working for the sake of working’ productivity is the key.
4. avoid comparison
when you are a minimalist, you are not ruled by material possession. in a consumption ridden world, it’s easy to look at others and wonder why you don’t have certain things, while it’s difficult to look at others and still be satisfied with what you possess. avoid comparison and remember that minimalism is all about living with less items and objects so that you and your growth is the center of your life.
i’m finally finished with my transition to the minimalism lifestyle! i have been slacking recently thanks to some incidents in my university, but all’s well that ends well i suppose? going to be posting more frequently now that i’m getting myself back on track!
