Why 2018 is the Perfect Time to Start Your Minimalist Journey
Becoming a minimalist means that you have decided to live your life in the most simple way possible. You let go of materialistic things and ideas. This is great because most people that decide to become minimalists find that their lives become happier. Now is the perfect time to reevaluate your lifestyle for a variety of reasons.
Easier to be Satisfied
While it may be tough to let go of your possessions and change your way of thinking, you may find that the simple life will leave you feeling more satisfied for a number of reasons. You will not have to worry about competing with others to see who has the most, or even who has the best. You’ll soon learn that the things that you thought made you happy no longer do. Perhaps less possessions and more experiences in 2018?
Free up Debt
Minimalism generally frees up your debt. When you have a minimalist lifestyle, you will find that you are not buying near as many things as you previously were. No more shopping sprees to the mall to add to your shoe collection or wardrobe. Your credit card will become strictly for emergency use, and even then, you may not need it because you will be saving extra money, from purchasing fewer things. Freeing up debt is very freeing in general.
Having fewer possessions, means that you will have fewer things to have to worry about upkeeping. You will not have to worry about something breaking and needing to go out and replace it. Even if something important does break, you will actually have the means to fix it.
More Free Time
You will also have less to keep clean and organized. In return, this will give you more free time to do what you want. Our lives are so consumed by stuff and time spent cleaning that stuff that there is no time for what really matters. 2018 is the perfect time to start your minimalism journey because it means more free time with family and doing what matters.
Minimalism isn’t a one size fits all approach. It means doing what works for you. Having less stuff really does result in less stress and more time doing things you love. Stuff causes stress on your life, although it isn’t always easy to see. Less debt and more free time, it’s time to sign yourself up for a minimalist journey.
