According to the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), minimalism is an artistic trend that uses minimal and basic elements, such as pure colors, simple geometric shapes, natural fabrics, etc. But beyond this, there is a true philosophy of life that involves stripping ourselves of what we do not need to focus on what really makes us feel good. Start practicing it with these following tips.
A sustainable life is simpler than you think. Start by living more in the day, having spaces with natural lighting will help you not to waste electricity! Always recycle, both at home and at work. Buy food with the minimum possible packaging and start using the bike more. You'll be helping to keep the planet cleaner!
As much as we deny it, sometimes the excessive consumption of social networks leaves us saturated with information. It is time for you to connect with the essential person you are and calm your head. Practice yoga or meditation in a green area, contact with nature helps bring peace.
A good idea is to schedule everything you had planned in the week on your phone calendar. Focus on fulfilling everything on time and you will see how much time you will have to relax, go for a walk, or even go to a museum! If someone can take care of organizing your agenda, that would be great!
We know, abandoning old belongings can be very difficult. Each of the things we have has a story behind it and that's why it's hard to let them go. However, objects are only material things. Eliminate everything that no longer serves you, be practical like Marie Kondo! Even moving to a new space can be a good opportunity to start over.
Sounds simple, but it’s the truth. Give yourself the opportunity to have new habits, from reading a novel that moves you or makes you excited, to go out for a bike ride. And don't forget to share your time with your loved ones, organize a reunion to catch up or just celebrate life. You don’t need a great excuse to live together and have fun together.
