Minimalism is simply distilling your life and the stuff you owe down to it’s most important parts. 🌸
By doing this we identify priorities in our lives, remove clutter both in our minds and physical items, as well as optimize everything around those things.
A few things to consider are:
𝟏. 𝐁𝐞 𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐚𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐡𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 🤔—> 😃
This is going to be a journey, it won’t be easy, and you might want to give up halfway. You need to know why you are doing this, what will be the outcome, and how it will benefit you. During the challenging times, you need to have the answer ready to remind yourself why this is important to you.
𝟐. 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐫𝐢𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐟𝐟. 👠👗🧸 📚
This is a good first step to not only clean out your closet, house, garage, and anywhere else you keep things, but also because it’s a good way to see how deeply you are attached to certain things. It will show you how you feel when you are letting things go. Letting go of physical items should be quite easy in comparison to mental or emotional attachments. So start off with the basics.
𝟑. 𝐁𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 ⏰
This can go back to setting the intentions for the day post. You need to be clear, organized, and practical on how to spend the hours of your day. What are the important things you need to accomplish? What are the things that you absolutely must do because they affect you on a daily basis and are of high importance?
One thing not to do is to add 100 items on your tasks to accomplish and think you are actually going to do it. You will be disappointed, trust me. Do this for months and what do you get? You, believing you, due to obvious reasoning that you cannot be trusted, you don’t fulfill your own promises, you never finish what you say you will, and you are lying daily to yourself. How awful is that! So, keep it realistic, clear, and attainable.
I hope this was helpful, have a good rest of your day! 🌞
