Beginning 2017, I set “Minimalism” as my Motto.
To chart out a path for myself, I researched about it more and more and ended up writing a Book “A-Z of Minimalism”
The Book helped me to discover the areas of my Life that need Minimalism.
Minimalism is not replacing the colorful things with black and white, it’s about bringing Life to things and relationships. Decluttering away the things we don’t use. Cherishing what we currently have.
This is how Minimalism has improved my Life.
There are always things in our Homes that invites the clutter- An extra chair in our bedroom, a side table, Storage Boxes, extra wardrobe.
I set aside Weekends for Decluttering such things.
Moreover, I decluttered the walls by Removing extra frames, I removed broken pieces and decluttered my wardrobe.
I kept only what is useful. One in and One out works perfectly for clothes, cosmetics, and shoes.
When you free yourself from buying and organizing stuff, you gift yourself with some free time you can utilize as per your wish.
I spent more time outdoors with my Kiddo.
I attended more Family gatherings.
I spent the spare time on my Blog.
I stopped saying “I have no time” and rather created some free time with the help of Minimalism.
NO TO OVER-COMMITMENTS:
Saying NO is an art.
When I said no to overcommitments, be it Work or my Blog or Personal, I free myself of unwanted stress and anxiety.
Putting your phone on silent mode for some time, Taking up the assignments you can complete without anxiety, Saying No to non-worthy people.
Sometimes, It really isn’t worthy to say yes when you don’t want to.
NO TO CONTROVERSIAL CONVERSATIONS:
There were many moments when I found myself pulling towards the conversations that do not prove any good to anyone.
Be it a Tweet on Women exploitation or Facebook post on Child abuse or a controversial discussion at Home, I tried to turn a deaf ear.
Not because I don’t care but because my reply would not bring any positive change as their only intent is to promote rage.
Apart from the above experiences and changes, Minimalism has gifted me with the practice of cherishing and appreciating what I already have, aka Gratitude.
I am practicing daily gratitude from last 5 months and I can feel the positive changes.
It works like a magic!
CHERISHING THE PRESENT:
When I tried to seek a Life of less, Life taught me to appreciate what I already had.
Rather than fretting over little time I get to spend with my Partner, I started cherishing the small moments with him.
We cannot watch the movie together, but at least we Dine together.
We cannot go on a vacation or a long drive, but we go to Park together.
