Clear your wardrobe

Clear your wardrobe

Take everything out of your wardrobe and pile it on the bed. 
  • Create 3 piles; things to go to charity, to sell or to the bin. 
  • Anything you haven’t worn in the past 6 months goes straight to one of the piles. 
  • Work your way through each item and see its necessity.
  • The rest goes back into the wardrobe, sectioned off into each type of clothing.

Eat Less & eat better

Eat a big breakfast, a small lunch and a tiny dinner. 

Everyone’s different but if you eat more than you burn you’ll struggle as the years go by. Too much processed and sugary foods will make you sluggish.

Sit less

Get a stand-up desk or get up from your desk every hour or so. Set a reminder, then after a week, you’ll have created a habit. Get out of the office at lunch and walkabout. 

The human body is not designed to sit for 8 hours a day. Move around, stretch and get away from your computer screen.

Change your commute

Think about your morning commute. Can you improve the way you travel? This doesn’t mean a faster route, it could mean a nicer route or a more comfortable way to travel. 

Don’t battle the time it takes to get to work, make it enjoyable and use it wisely. Take the time to read, meditate, listen to music or a podcast.

Get rid of your Smartphone

Many things you are using your smartphone for are time fillers. You can read emails at home or at work. You need to plan for banking and google maps, most things you can live without.

Minimalism

It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

Minimalism encourages us to invest in things we love, instead of accumulating things we like. When you have fewer options, you force yourself into a positive mindset.

Being Frugal Is Not Cheap

Frugal people do spend money, but want the maximum bang for the buck, without stressing themselves.

Frugality does not mean compromising quality, neglecting your social life, or being a cheap stake. It is about making smart spending choices, like buying second-hand clothing, avoiding pricey subscriptions or brands.
