It has been about 4 to 5 years of practicing minimalism, and it’s gotten a lot easier a long the ways. However, we all know that minimalism isn’t just about the materials, it is also about the non-materials that can bunch up into our lives and our minds. The people, our type of work, hobbies, foods, etc. I’ve been trying to get back to the basics of eliminating anything that no longer serves me. And also eliminating myself from anything that no longer needs my services . I remember having this feeling back in 2010/2011 and ended up getting rid of my FaceBook, this time going on for 7 years. I’ve decided to leave my social platforms for work/creativity. I feel the further I get away from it, the better I feel. The same feeling of not getting involved in other “toxic entertainments” like the news, or other TV programs. I am ready for a deep cleanse, and want to encourage everyone as well. It is time to get back to the basics, and appreciate the simplicity of our own lives. We need to make more time for what really matters with ourselves. Now, this is a personal challenge, and not to say everyone has to do it, but to at lease try it and give yourself a break from time to time. I believe in the importance of adding value to your life, and sometimes that means stepping back, so you can go forward.
So what is there to do with your time?
Spark up your interest/creation by doing something fun.
What is going on in your life right now? Can you make changes to it? What can you do to show your appreciation?
- Do Something New
What is something you’ve always wanted to try?
- Relax and Enjoy
You don’t have to always find something to do. Sometimes doing nothing is all the enjoyment you need at that time.
Take little steps for bigger rewards. And know that it’s okay to be missing out sometimes, it is not the end of the world :).
