The minimalist live style started back in the 1950. Basically, you live with less, much less about 100 things.
Today is a big trend. The simplicity of art, media, and lifestyle has evolved into this new (yet old) culture. To be a minimalist is to free yourself of stress, clutter, things that are not so much important. To enjoy life to the fullest with family, friends, eat right, value simplicity.
Look around you, de-clutter yourself of material things that no longer have value. Ask yourself, do you really need 10 or 20 pairs of shoes? Do you need so many clothes? Is your closet full of clothes that you no longer use? Does your home have to look like a museum in order to make you feel better? Is having so many electronic devices good for you?
Would it really hurt you to have maybe 1 or 2 credit cards instead of the 10 you are carrying around? Is it really necessary to upgrade your car or phone every year?
There is an old saying, “You can’t take it with you when you die.”
For some of us, living with less has always been our struggle. There is nothing fancy or easy with having less. We just cannot afford it. Now, it’s a new way of life.
Can you live with less? Ask yourself. You might be surprised with your answer.
