The less unnecessary things you have at home and at work, the less distracted you’ll be and the less time you’ll spend taking care of them. Minimalism brings order and conciseness into your life without making things too complicated. Here are some few things that promote intentionality in a life of a minimalist.
1. Giving/donation: You can donate unnecessary clothes and other items you don’t need to charity or you can sell them in second-hand shops over the Internet. There are apps you can sell used products to those that need it.
2. Financial peace: If you are that kind of person who desire financial stability and want to be debt free, then it’s good to embrace a minimalist lifestyle. Your consumption level will decrease and your overall living expenses will become more manageable. You can achieve a debt free life, save money and begin to enjoy a debt free life.
3. Gratitude: “Better than I deserve” meaning reflecting a heart of gratitude. Appreciate the things you own; focus on what you have and stop dwelling on what you don’t have. True happiness is found in being grateful with what we have.
4. Minimize your home and work space: Check through those cluttered space with clothes, gadget, cosmetics, and even tabs in your computer browser! If it is difficult for you to part with your favorite things because of sentimental attachment to them, try to put them in boxes or bags and hide them. If for one to two weeks you constantly remember the items and regret that you got rid of them, then safely return them to your space. But if there’s a 90% probability you will forget what was put in these boxes, it’s time to get rid of them for good.
5. Declutter your mind: Withdraw from any gossip, over time; you will see toxic people disappear from your life. Emotionally, owning less helps me focus on what truly matters to me and I am able to spend my energy on my dreams. True wealth is in your emotional state.
6. Organize your thoughts: Take responsibility for your thoughts, try to think in a positive way. Surround yourself with positive minded people who have similar goals.
7. Pursue your dream: you only have one life to live, why not get that project done. Concentrate on your goals and values; do not rush to keep up with everything going on in the world.
8. Simplify your life: Be intentional about every purchase and decisions. Give yourself time to think through things before you do it. This will help you to make a good decision you won’t regret.
9. True wealth: The less you live with – material goods, thoughts, friends, EVERYTHING – the more inherently valuable everything becomes, because now values have meaning.
Save and Invest: Savings from your decluttering process should not stay idle; it must be channel into
10. Investment: Removing excess possessions will give you extra savings on the things you buy. Instead of placing value in material things you can invest such money to make more money to secure your future and to touch lives in your community through charitable works.
