Less things less problems, isn’t it? But why don’t we keep or buy less things when its about spending our money. America is majorly going through this problem where they spend more than they earn. India is not, because it is one of the devoloping countries and 1/5th of the population is below poverty line. And yes, on the funny side, we have the bunnia and Gujurati community, who literally saves money even when they require the most. So in other rich devoloped countries, most of the people literally just live from paycheck to paycheck, and credit line of money is just another cherry on the top on the negative side.
Though, there are people who are just trying to live debt free and living with things and sources which keeps them alive and helps them in staying functional in every aspect of their life. In a nutshell, keeping everything which matters or which will be used during the day. I really admire Matt D’avella and his videos about Minimalism lifestyle he has created.
In case if you don’t know what is minimalism? It is the very intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it. It is a life that forces intentionality. And as a result, it forces improvements in almost all aspects of our life. I personally believe that minimalism helps people to just control thier life and be more productive than they can ever become. how you keep your things in your drawers and closet is just something which counts in a life of a minimalist.
How minimalism is changing my life?
A. Keeping things which I require the most.
B. No waste in my apartment.
C. I am always aware where all of my things are kept.
D. Being more productive in my life rather than just finding my own things in my room.
E. Compartmentaliztion and segration of things I use in every particular task whether its about my personal hygiene or my workout clothes, they are all set.
F. I save a lot of money when I followed minimalism dedicately, and my weekend shopping to reward myself did came to an end. It did put a full stop on materialistic love for things such as clothes, watches, fit bits, smartphones, gaming consoles. I still love to spend on street food though.
G. I am much more focused and logical on my decisions, where i just see the thing which matters.
I personally believe that life is simple, we human beings kind of made it complex and uneasy for us, by putting obstacles to please ourselves and taking out useless conclusions to just reach somewhere.
Keep it simple & real.
