Minimalist living

It’s about getting rid of things you do not use or need, leaving an uncluttered, simple environment and an uncluttered, simple life.

It’s living without an obsession with material things or an obsession with doing everything and doing too much. It’s using simple tools, having a simple wardrobe, carrying little and living lightly.

The benefits of minimalism
  • It’s more sustainable.
  • It’s easier to organize.
  • It’s lower in stress.
  • It’s less expensive and less debt.
  • It’s less cleaning and maintaining.
  • There’s more room for creating, for loved ones, for peace, for doing the things that give you joy.
  • There’s more time for getting healthy.
Minimalism And Self-Betterment

Practical minimalism goes beyond aesthetics to foster self-betterment. Ultimately, seeking minimalism is a process of value clarification, editing out the unnecessary, and refining.

Identify Your Values

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.

Prioritize Your Projects

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.
