How to Become a Minimalist? 10 Ways to Start Living a Minimalist Lifestyle

How to Become a Minimalist

Have you ever asked yourself “why do I hold onto this shit?”

Anxious downward spiral thoughts.
The sweater your old roommate got you… 2 sizes too small.
Every TIME, Women’s Health, Business Insider, and Psychology Weekly from 2009-2016.
The friend from high school that makes you feel guilty for being successful (why?).
The 5-inch cheetah heels you had to have because they were 50% off.
The catty personal trainer that manages to help you lose 10 pounds- 7 of which you are certain was confidence.

Can you think of anyone that doesn’t hold onto to anything they shouldn’t? Probably not.

If we aren’t conscious about how the way things around us make us feel, we will exist in a state of constant stress and confusion. How can we enjoy life like that? Yet, every single day, we hold onto shit that makes us miserable. I thoroughly believe we are only confined by the walls we build ourselves, and minimalism will aid you in knocking those walls down.

What is Minimalism?

Minimalism is a lifestyle choice that essentially requires the disposal of things that do not bring joy in order to create space for things that do. This revolves around getting rid of the negative and unnecessary, without guilt and remorse. You can choose to focus on physical possessions, such as maintaining a minimalistic closet or toxic relationships. I prefer to use minimalism as a guiding principal for relationships, emotions, and household items. By letting go of what you do not truly care for, someone else can come along and love those things.
