Minimalism, what is it?
Well Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom. Freedom from clutter. Freedom from worry. Freedom from depression. Freedom from the trappings of the consumer culture we’ve built our lives around. Real and true freedom.
The more you own the more you have to take care of, to clean, to wash, to fix, to organize. ect. It takes up space in your home and in your mind.
Imagine being able to move or travel by just packing a few boxes, that would take alot of stress away from your life not to mention less money to spend on moving or storing those items.
Some people own so many things that they have to rent a storge unit to store their belongings. Imagine if you just downsized enough to not have to rent a storage unit, you would have less stress and more money.
For me personally the idea of minimalism is appealing because of the mental and visual freedom it provides me…the less cluture I have in my home the more space I have and the less cluttered my mind is. It helps you see your life in a new perspective and helps open your mind to the things that really matter in life!!
Theres an old saying that goes perfectly with minimalism and its “less is more” and it truly is.
Go ahead, start small and just get rid of a box or two of items that are just collecting dust or clothes you never wear and see how you feel after that. I bet you will feel a little lighter like a small weight has been lifted off of your shoulders.
