You probably already heard about minimalism and maybe you are considering to approach it. So, here we are with few good reasons to finally start being minimalist and explaining how it can improve your life.
Minimalism is a philosophy
Many people do not know that minimalism is, above all, a philosophy. It is about simplifying your life and thinking about what it is important for you. Then, leave everything else behind.
They said “clear space for a clear mind” and there is a lot of truth in here. This lifestyle helps you to become more aware of your space, your things and ultimately of your being.
Minimalism opens a new level of freedom and awareness
You give to your possessions a whole new value. All the things you have to make you feel good – otherwise, there would not be there.
You will be amazed by the time you save while tidying, avoiding a huge source of stress for many of us. Every activity of your life will be quicker as well, finding your items immediately in a space that is not overloaded.
Another huge benefit of minimalism is that is a truly eco-friendly way of living, as it minimizes your personal waste production and does not encourage capitalism in producing more and more unnecessary stuff while using natural and finite resources.
At the end of the day, another thing minimalism does for you is helping you saving money, even more than what you think. It is crazy the amount of money we spend on accumulating items that we ultimately we do not need.
When buying something, this state of mind leads you to ask yourself if that purchase would enrich your life (spoiler alert: most of the time, they do not, not even a bit).
Do not get me wrong, I do not mean to not buy anything at all or only useful items (while it is indeed the goal) but avoiding as much as possible things you already have, single-use or disposable products and to use shopping as a hobby.
You become a conscious customer who cares about their purchases, so you’re also looking for something that lasts in time.
You start also to give objects relative importance and to give more value to people and experiences.
