Key Ideas

Minimalists live intentionally

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.

Applying minimalism to your relationships

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.

Be intentional with your time

Every time you receive an invitation, make some time to think about whether it’s something that you are excited to be attending.

Give the majority of your time to activities you enjoy doing.

Apply minimalism to your finances

A big part of minimalism is creating financial freedom.

Try setting up an automatic transfer, so that you can save without even trying. Think about cutting out unnecessary expenses and subscriptions that you don’t use to save even more.

Subtraction for addition

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.

Minimalism as a form of mindfulness

Minimalist could be about silencing the noise of an increasingly loud world, about calming the millions of thoughts that flow through my monkey mind and giving yourself permission to slow down and take a breath.

There is no single way to lead a minimalist life
There is no single way to lead a minimalist life

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 help you save money

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.

Decluttering can be emotional

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.

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.

Reasons For A Minimalist Closet
  • Tidier closet: you won’t have to dig through items you don’t wear
  • Increased confidence: if all your clothes are your best, you feel good no matter what you put on
  • More time and money: being satisfied with your wardrobe means shopping less so you can use your time and cash on more important things
  • Positive environmental impact: by investing in long-wear clothing, instead of fast fashion, you help prevent waste.
Minimalist Vs Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule wardrobes are a subsection of minimalist wardrobes that limit how many items of clothing you buy each season. Most capsule wardrobes have 30 items or less.

Minimalist wardrobes are more flexible. There is no set number of items as long as you wear all of them – and they bring you joy.
