I have personally recently begun living a more minimalist lifestyle – as much as a person with a 4 year old and a 6 year old can, anyway! There are so many benefits. Here are some ideas as to how you can incorporate minimalism into your daily life:
Declutter Your Home to Simplify Your Life
A great way to declutter your home is to use a decluttering app. The clutter in your home can start to weigh you down mentally and physically, but a decluttering app can help you get rid of it by organizing your belongings and giving you insights on how much space they take up.
“Spaceful” is one such app which helps you measure the size of your cluttering items so that you can create a plan for getting rid of them. It also makes it easier to know where to find specific items when needed, and provides insight into the quantity and location of items in your home.
Learn the Art of Saying No to Reduce Stress & Anxiety
In a world where we are constantly told that we should be “busy” or “doing more”, the art of saying no is one of the greatest skills to have.
We need to recognize when our limits have been reached and say no before the stress and anxiety starts building up. This will help us reduce stress and anxiety in our lives.
Carry Less in Your Everyday Bag to Feel More Energized
Carrying a heavy bag can make you feel sluggish and tired.
There are a few things you can do to lighten the load and feel more energized.
1) Carry only the essentials: Cut down on your load by carrying only what’s necessary for your day-to-day life.
2) Ditch the bulky items: Think about what you’re carrying and ask yourself, can I replace it with something smaller? If yes, then do so!
Save More Money by Learning How To Be A Smart Spender
In order to survive in this world where money is tight, there are some ways that people can try their best to save money. One of these ways is by learning how to be a smart spender.
Sometimes, the simplest way to save money is by switching brands or stores. Most people know that if they see something that is on sale, it means they might not be getting the best deal for their money. This could be because of inflation or because of other factors like marketing and advertisement costs.
Make Time For Self-Care & Breaks From Technology To Reduce Stress
Regular digital detoxes are great for clearing your mind and helping ease stress. Minimalism doesn’t have to relate to things you can see – we carry around the weight of things we can’t see – all those apps and unread emails. This doesn’t mean that you should ditch technology altogether. Consider taking time away from technology, or at least reducing your screen time by using a break timer, “pomodoro” strategy or “time out” apps.
