Why be a Minimalist – Less Clutter

Home Care in Newport Beach, CA

If we see around the world, more and more people are adopting the minimalist lifestyle. This lifestyle has been around for a long time, but it is gaining popularity day by day now. People are now more aware that less is more. All the things that we value around us are just that: material things. They are actually making our lives harder. Living a minimalist lifestyle means that you are removing all the clutter from your surroundings and living life with only the essentials. Being a minimalist has nothing to do with empty fridges and cupboards. It is about enjoying life without the material possessions. There a lot of advantages that come with being a minimalist. The following are the few main ones why you should be a minimalist:

1.     No More Clutter

By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you will be de-cluttering your house, and your life. Do you spend hours cleaning your house? Hours in which you could be doing something constructive, like spending time with your family? If you adopt a minimalist lifestyle, all that extra clutter will be thrown out if the window and you can spend your retirement with peace, and enjoy time with your family.

2.     Spending Less, Gaining More

By spending less money on material things, you are gaining more than savings. You are gaining peace.

By spending less, you will be free from the tension of paying off credit card bills. And the money you are saving can go in your travel fund.

3.     Step off the Comparison Train

Everything seems to be a comparison these days. Who has the biggest house, has the latest iPhone, went on an exotic vacation? And this competition to be on top is one of the biggest causes of depression. By getting off this train, you are actually paving a healthier and happier future for yourself.

4.     Less Stuff, Less Stress

The more stuff you have, the more you worry about it. The cleaning, the maintaining, and the repairs can take up most of our days. Not to mention the stress that comes with it. By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you are not just giving up on the luxurious things; you are also giving up the stress, which is so much better for your health and well being. The transition to being a minimalist may be hard, but the decision is easy. But the minute you make it, you will be free from the stress, tension, and pressures of life.

The phrase “money can’t buy happiness” is totally correct. Money can neither buy you happiness, nor experiences, or even peace of mind. But you can achieve that by living a minimalist lifestyle
