5 Simple Ideas to Live a More Minimalist Life

Have you ever thought what the real disease of the 21st century is? The answer is simple: `stress.` We stress about bills, we stress at work, we stress because everything is a competition – all these and many more, make it impossible to live a healthy life. But there is hope! Minimalism.

A few years back minimalism was a choice for some, but today we consider it more of a cure for the rest. Yes, it is a trend now, but we think it is a beneficial one. Today we plan to share with you some ideas that might help you control or even better get rid of a good amount of stress and start living again.

A reason, a season, a lifetime

Our first idea was inspired by a poem written by (unfortunately) an anonymous writer. It talks about the people we get to meet in our lifetime and their importance in our lives. Some people are quite toxic without them knowing, and a relationship with them is not that beneficial for us. What can we do? Say goodbye to them and move on.

This poem applies to other aspects of our lives as well. For example, in our homes. This means you need to start decluttering your house so that you can call it a home again. If this process is giving you stress vibes, start small. One place at a time. Take everything out and ask yourself if you need that item for a reason, a season or a lifetime. If you can give an honest answer, make sure you keep those items for that specific time.

Bonus: you will become a more mindful shopper, which will save you some money as well.

Rent

If you like owning stuff that is ok, we are not judging. But what about the number of things you buy and completely forget about? Or you used something once, and that was it? Let’s take for example books. Your bookshelves are filled with books that maybe you didn’t have the time to read or perhaps you will never read. Get rid of them, make this decision. Let the words move on. Donate the books or sell them and when you really what something to read, instead of buying, rent it from a library (borrow). This way you are inevitably going to read it and your home will be clutter free. Moreover, you can rent a lot of things like DVDs, video games, clothes, etc.

Stay organized

Another tip for living a more minimalist and stress-free life is to become more organized. Like we mentioned before, start small. You can plan your days one at a time, and when you become more experienced, you can plan a whole week. Trust us, the feeling of keeping everything together is priceless. Needless to say that this habit will help you avoid impulse shopping.

Challenge yourself

There are a lot of websites on minimalism, where to start, how to start and what to do to be productive. Here is where challenges come into the picture. There are a lot of minimalist challenges that you can try out. Like get rid of one thing you don’t need a day – this challenge may last for a week or a month. At the end of the challenge, you can analyze your results and, why not, congratulate yourself for your hard work. It will be worth it!

Think about your wardrobe

Simplify your wardrobe as well. Keep those items that still fit you perfectly and that are versatile enough for you to mix and match them to create as many new outfits as you need. Of course, we all have one or two pieces for special occasions, but don’t keep things for `just in case.`

So there you have it: 5 simple ideas to live a more minimalist life and a happier life. Don’t hang on to things that mean or do nothing for you. It is up to you to fight stress and win the battle. Leonardo da Vinci once said that ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,’ and we couldn’t agree more.
