The minimal lifestyle and persona is not about being boring or basic. It’s about clarity and removing unnecessary aspects within your life to create a transparent way of living.
First things first, de-clutter that wardrobe. Donate that coat you always tell yourself you are going to wear but never do, bin those old used heels that once upon a time were your go-to shoes. Remove unnecessary items that no longer serve a purpose. This will give you room to add new simple items to your wardrobe, timeless pieces you will cherish.
Now that you look the part, it’s time to change your environment. This can affect your mood in a big way. If you do not have a clear, clean and organised home environment it can have a domino effect on your daily activities, creating a hectic and stressful lifestyle.
You do not need a lot of money to achieve an expensive looking, minimal home interior. By using inspirational pictures/blogs you will find simple home hacks and DIY tips.
By painting your home white and freshening up your flooring to a natural fresh shade, this can re-vamp any room. Use inspirational images or quotes in simple frames, and incorporate some plants and flowers which will showcase to your guests that you look after your home.
Using mirrors and neutral shades around your home will help keep a clear mind-set and a calm living environment.
Organise everything, ensure your important documents are correctly filed, your bathroom and cleaning resources are stocked in advanced. Have your food organised well, buy only what you need, try not to waste anything.
The overall aim of minimalism is to live more with less. Simplify your meals, your paperwork, your unhealthy habits, get rid of them. Try looking after your body, after all you only get one. Drink healthy teas, and spend time daily on skincare and pampering yourself. This will again help you to feel the best possible version of you that you can be.
“When your needs are simple, you need less.”
This may seem a lot to begin with so here are some points to help get you started.
