Minimalism can be a method to end the excesses of our world all around us. It’s in contrast to each advertisement that we hear on TV and radio. It’s a culture which prides itself on the accumulation of possessions that we consume and material possessions, as well as clutter in our homes, debt, distractions, and the noise.
What we don’t appear to be missing is any significance left in the world.
If you live a minimalist life it is possible to throw away the things you don’t require so that you can focus on what you actually require.
I have experienced firsthand what we really require to live. I was lucky enough to be able to live in a van during four months while travelling across Australia. The experience gave me invaluable lessons on the things that really matter and how little we actually need the things we accumulate.
More is less.
A minimalist lifestyle can be reducing.There are some obvious benefits to minimalism like less clean-up or stress better organised home, and more savings to be made however, there are some life-changing, profound advantages.
What we aren’t aware of it is when we cut back the amount of stuff we are reducing more than just things.
Think about a few benefits of living without things:
1. Find a way to make room for what is important
When we clear out our junk storage and closets, we make space and create peace. It’s no longer a feeling of claustrophobic and can breathe again. Let the space enrich our lives with meaningful things instead of just stuff.
2. More Freedom
The accumulation of possessions can be like an anchor, it holds us in. We’re always scared of losing our’stuff’. Take it off and you’ll experience feeling of freedom that you have never experienced before an escape from the lust for money, debt, and working too much.
3. Concentrate upon Health and Hobbies
If you are spending more time than you do at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses and you’ll have an opportunity to pursue the things you enjoy which you just don’t find time for.
Everyone always says they don’t have time But how many actually take a look at what they’re doing with their time?
You could be having a great day with your family or hitting the gym, doing yoga, or reading a favorite book, or taking a trip. Whatever you enjoy, you could be doing however, instead you’re stuck at Sears buying more things.
4. Affordances to Focus on Material Possessions
The things we keep around us is nothing more than a distraction. we’re filling a need. Money doesn’t bring satisfaction, however it does purchase the comfort. Once that initial satisfaction is achieved this is when your obsession with money must be put to rest.
We are constantly bombarded by media, which promises to bring happiness through materialistic means. We are unable to escape the pressures of every day. Refrain from those urges. It’s not a good choice that isn’t going to make you happy.
Make Every Minute Make Every Minute Count!
It’s not easy not to be trapped in the trap of consumption. I require constant reminders that it’s just a false feeling of joy. I love things however, I know that I don’t require it.
5. A Greater Peace of Mind
When we are hung up on objects of material value, we stress as we are worried about losing them. Through simplifying your life with a minimalist lifestyle, you can let go of the attachment to these items and create a tranquil peace of mind.
The less you worry about the more peace you’ll have It’s as easy as that.
6. More Joy
In the process of de-cluttering it is natural to feel happier due to your inclination towards the things that matter the most. It is clear that there are false promises hidden in the chaos, it’s a broken barrier against the real essence of life.
Additionally, you will find joy by being more productive, you will experience more focus after having focussed your goals, you’ll feel joy taking pleasure in slowing down.
7. Afraid of Failure, but not as much
If you take a examine Buddhist monks, they are awash with no fear and don’t fear anything since they don’t have anything to lose.
In whatever endeavor you choose to do, you will be successful if you’re not afraid of losing everything you own. You must follow the proper steps to secure the roofing over the head of your house, but realize that you have nothing to fear other than the fear of itself.
8. More confidence
The whole minimalist lifestyle encourages individuality and self-reliance. This will help you feel more confident in the quest for joy.
