Minimalism is a lot more nuanced than we think.
Minimalism is a concept that’s often misunderstood. People think that it simply means getting rid of all your materialistic possessions to start living like a hermit.
However, in truth, the concept is much more nuanced than that. It’s more about intentionality. The focus is on getting quality rather than quantity.
Think of it like this – Instead of mindlessly spending a major chunk of your salary on various subscription services, you can choose to instead spend that money on things that help upgrade your skills, boost your career, or simply contribute to your well-being. It’s about thinking of a better return-on-investment activity.
Once you become intentional in choosing what to allow in your life, you’ll start realizing that you don’t need much to live a happy and fulfilling life.
Minimalism, thus, teaches you to be mindful in choosing things that bring the most value to your life.
Indulge in things that you enjoy, be that clothes, gadgets, or cars. The only condition? – Get things that bring value to your life; things that you interact with frequently.
Here’s the key takeaway – Don’t get stuff just for the sake of getting stuff.
