philosophy, which leads to satisfaction. Our current society is built
on achievement and activity. The insight is that active people are

minimalist lifestyle and once you choose this lifestyle you will able

for a better life. But which type of life will give you peace and
satisfaction is the most important factor to consider before choosing
any option. Your life may be simple or complex depending upon your
decision. What you wish or what

money in your bank account. The truth of being economically deprived
has its own advantages. A life without the stress of spending is one
type of freedom also. Some of the benefits
of living a minimalist lifestyle are that our view is no longer
jammed with paying attention to the newest fashion, or cell phone. We

financial reasons. When you have a lot of money and huge bank balance
you will have only stress nothing else. When your house, your
haven, is jumbled from all your expenses, all those must buys, is it

LIVING IS A GREAT LIFESTYLE
living style has been around for thousands of years but its
popularity increased lately. Possibly it happened because many
people, used to living a material life, are not satisfied with their
life and started to question that why they are not satisfied, why the
things don’t make them happy. Some people are realizing the fact that
by living with less they can get more.
The Minimalism is a lifestyle that involves living with only those
things required for happiness, health and comfort.
I like to take a softer approach to being a minimalist person, being a
minimalist is not a destination, it is a journey. Some people may want
to get rid of every single needless item in their house as soon as
possible. But for me, getting rid of unnecessary stuffs is also
Take an example of roller coaster, visualize the top of the hill as a
purchase. There is a temporary thrill but then it is all downward. Next
part where get off is called ownership. The decluttering is
the end of the ride, in this stage you all smiles because it is all
over. This is when you are all smiles because it is finally over. Enjoy
the procedure with embracing the final stage.
To be a minimalist, you don’t need to give up all your property.

is bringing you down or things those are not necessary to improve your
You don’t worry about to be a minimalist, where you try to decrease
your possessions below a specific number. Possessing less than 100
items is not the objective, in my view, minimalism is different for
every individual and you will get advantage if you decrease your
possession up to your comfort level.

beneficial to us. All want to acquire new and fancy things. There may
be nothing wrong for some people but during reading this article you

TIPS ON MINIMALIST LIFESTYLE
isn't only a fashion or a trend. It is a lifestyle. It affects the mode
you live your life. There are many grounds why minimalism is
recommended-and how it workings. Mainly significant thing is it
declutters. With it, you have no room for immoderation or all that are
How do you best live with becoming a minimalist? Here are some tips:
1. Start slowly. As mentioned, it's a lifestyle. Therefore, it needs to
be a practice, and you don't form habits instantly. It takes time of
repeated actions. You should then start slowly. For example, you may
desire to stop buying furniture and fixture first until you're sure
that you have already determined the things you really need at home.
Reduce your spending every month until you reach your desired budget,
one that supports all your needs.
2. Go for the most fundamental things. Again, let's go back to one of
the principles of minimalism: removal of the excesses. Whatever you
don't require, you don't get. If you don't have it, then you let go of
it. Instead you focus more on those that you truly need in life. For
example, you don't need to live in a three-bedroom house when there
will only be two people living there. You don't require a king-size bed
when you can fit in a queen-size.
3. Be with minimalist people. You'll definitely go back to your old
ways if you still decide to hang out with those who live very
extravagant lives. If you want to be a minimalist, then hang out more
with those who are profligate. You can also use your time with them to
study more on how they live simple lives.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not telling you gully at all. However, since
you're trying to change your lifestyle, you better select to whom to
spend more of your time.
4. Learn to let go. You'll surely let go some things and even some
people when you're trying to be minimalistic, and for someone who's
been keeping them, it's going to be a very complex and sometimes long
Letting go is hard because it means saying good-bye. There's also the
possibility that you've previously attached yourself to them. To let go
then is losing a part of you too. If you're having a hard time doing
this, think about using subliminal messages or affirmations. A few days
before the pruning process, listen to them. You can download them as
mp3s or videos. These affirmations may carry messages about acceptance,
about freedom, and about simplicity.
5. Focus more on the improvement of your inner self. You'll discover
how easy it is for you to let go of the things you don't need when you
start spending more time with the nurturing of your inner self. Rather
than shop, immerse yourself in nature. Love people more than material
possessions. Give more time than things to those who are in need.
YOURSELF FROM MATERIALISM
intention to say that the lifestyle of the people at this recent time
is not really that good, but, that’s the reality. We can see how the
people have become so individualistic nowadays. People start to think
more about their own selves and they do not really care about the
others. Sometimes, this kind of condition has become so extreme. The
people have some kind of tendency to make sure they can get what they
want and feel satisfied even though the methods to achieve such
condition make the other suffer. However, at this point, we are not
going to talk about it. Instead, we are going to talk about something
much simpler but it can be said to become the part of the individualism
which can lead to many other pathetic conditions. What we are going to
talk about here is about materialism.
If you are not really aware about what materialism actually is, you can
take the example of how the people see the material more than its
content or main function. To make it simpler for you to comprehend
about this, you can take the example of how the people totally want to
choose the branded clothes instead of the regular clothes. We all know
that both of those clothes have the same function: to be worn and to
protect our bodies. However, whenever we are wearing branded clothes,
there is some additional matter that we will get and it is about
prestige. Indeed, compared to the main function of the clothes,
prestige is something that needs to be put aside or we can say that it
is just a mere additional feature. Nonetheless, the people at this
recent time seem to be more concerned about the brand and prestige
more. No matter how uncomfortable they need to feel whenever they are
wearing the clothes or the money they need to spend to get such
clothes, they do not care as long as they can get such prestige. They
feel so great just to make the other people feel impressed with the way
they wear their clothes and also how expensive the clothes are. It’s
totally ridiculous and this is what materialism means. The people see
the surface more than the real thing. They have been entrapped and this
is surely not a good thing. The people start living complicated life
which can make them suffer even though they do not really feel it.
What can be more annoying about this is how the people tend to do
anything as long as they can get what they want. Yes, they have become
the victims of materialism. Sometimes, there is some kind of
competition among the people about what they wear. They compete each
other to prove that they are able to get the expensive branded clothes.
This is totally not a good thing and needs to be stopped immediately.
If you do not realize it, you have become the slave of materialism. Why
don’t you free yourself from materialism? Remember that as long as you
can fulfill your basic needs, everything is going to be just fine.
There is no need to pay attention more to the prestige and what the
other people think about yourself. As long as you do not do anything
bad and make the other suffer, you should feel okay. Live simpler life
and you can find that greater happiness will be yours indeed.
