Minimalism: Discard What You Don’t Need

  • To get something new in life, we must first identify the stuff that has fulfilled its purpose and discard it with folded hands of gratitude.
  • To calm your inner turmoil, remove the outer things that unconsciously are the reason for your stress.
  • Let go of all your unnecessary material possessions as well as the physical and mental baggage you are carrying.

Emotional Catharsis

  • To tell someone what you really feel about them is incredibly freeing.
  • Instead of holding on to unhealthy situations and relationships due to fear, obligations or ‘being in the good books’, we need to live with a light heart and should have the freedom to be at peace.
  • If we detach from people who feel toxic or a burden to us, we begin to feel truly free.

Be In The Present Moment

The past mostly regrets, and the future is anxiety and worry. The only thing that is real is the present moment, and the art of mindfulness delves into the present, instead of being in dreams or illusions.

Our breath connects us to the present moment, like an anchor. By focusing on our breath, we eventually become mindful by default and live in the Now.
