Be More with Less

Hey sunflowers! I know my last post was almost 2 months ago & I apologize for the wait on a new one… so here it goes!

I have been practicing a minimalist lifestyle for a while now. I decided to practice because I was tired of having too many choices to wear of clothing & accessories and just the overwhelming amount of material things made my space feel cluttered. I’m not an extremist with minimalism, to the point that I don’t own a television but I do consider my strong believer that minimalism is the way to go. Plus nowadays we give material things too much meaning. Since I’ve started I find myself constantly getting rid of stuff I don’t wear or use. If I buy something new I make sure I’m replacing it & not adding. Also I only possess one of each thing.

What is Minimalism? :  a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom. (via theminimalist.com) 

Benefits of Minimalism :

  • Eliminate our discontent
  • Reclaim our time
  • Live in the moment
  • Pursue our passions
  • Discover our missions
  • Experience real freedom
  • Create more, consume less
  • Focus on our health
  • Grow as individuals
  • Contribute beyond ourselves
  • Rid ourselves of excess stuff
  • Discover purpose in our lives

Outside of material things, minimalism can be an asset to our relationships as well. Quality over Quantity! I’ve learned in life that I rather have a few loyal friends over so many acquaintances disguising themselves as real friends that really aren’t.

I encourage you all to give minimalist living a try. Start out with one part of your life & watch it spread into every part. Let me know if you do!
