1. Choosing quality over quantity. Weed out possessions, people, or thoughts that don’t serve you and focus on what adds value to your life.
2. Being responsible (financially and otherwise) so you have the freedom and fluidity to live to your values and remove yourself from unhealthy situations.
3. Being curious about every opportunity offered to you.
4. Discipline. It’s simple and hard at the same time, but so worth it.
5. Having nothing to lose.

Practical minimalism goes beyond aesthetics to foster self-betterment. Ultimately, seeking minimalism is a process of value clarification, editing out the unnecessary, and refining.
By identifying your core values you become more aware of what pursuits are worth your resources and can better employ them. There will be necessary tasks that don’t align with your core values, but you still have tremendous freedom to make your choices matter.
Prioritizing lets you better choose the content you consume and the opportunities you seek so you can foster your core values more effectively.
Once you start pursuing productivity, efficiency-killers like TV, social media, and mindless consumption are likely to be the first to go.

Minimalism is not about what you own. It’s about reducing the things in your life that aren’t providing value, so you can have more space for the things that truly matter.

To live a simple lifestyle, you’ll need a simple living space. Focus on keeping things that you value deeply, and toss things that you don’t need any longer.
If there is something in your life that you don’t love, change it. Cutting out the things that aren’t serving you is the first step for creating the life you want.
An exercise that really helps is to write down what an ideal day would look like for you in five years time. Then work toward that goal.
Going minimalist also means spending time with only the people you want to spend time with and focusing your social time on people who lifted you up.
