Minimalism is often seen as an all-white room containing few furniture pieces. There are no colors or patterns or decorative accents that don't serve some function. However, this is not true.
Minimalism can look very different from one person to the next. Pictures of well-organised shelves and neutral-pallet interiors can only convey so much.
Instead of trying to find ways to make more money, minimalists contemplate the opposite: They live with less.
Minimalists find that after going through simplifying their lives and their interiors, they feel more at peace and in charge of their surroundings.
Getting started on the road to minimalism can be the hardest. Once you realise how much you own, it can be overwhelming and fill you with guilt about the money wasted.
After decluttering, you may encounter another emotional factor: When you live with just the things you really love, breaking something will feel way more dramatic.
The philosophy may start at home, but being intentional can expand in other areas of your life, like your relationships, thoughts, and general attitude. You may find yourself constantly in a state of gratitude, knowing that you have everything you need.
When you make sure that everything in your life is there intentionally, you can better focus an manage your responsibilities.
