On Minimalism: Top Minimalist Lifehacks

People can get so busy with life, and forget to manage the clutter they have from day to day life. Becoming a minimalist can help you avoid a lot of disorganization and non-productivity. Minimalism can be graded as the level of clarity and simplicity that is in your life. These attributes give your life power and vividness, and also give your life a different sense of joy.

In life, everything can be hacked to serve your goals. For this reason, you will get another glimpse of the art of minimalism. Below, you will find the top lifehacks that can make you one step closer to becoming more minimalist.

1. Clutter out:

No one in the world has a clutter-free accommodation, even minimalists. The first step you should take in order to become a minimalist is that you have to admit that you need objects. “Perfect” minimalists usually tend to object this fact and believe they can live without objects. Objects are always needed and you cannot easily do without them.

After this step, you have to start cluttering out the duplicates. Afterward, list the things that you use on a daily basis. Prioritize them, and then remove the objects that are not really important. Make sure to update your list once a week or every two weeks. You will sense a different improvement in your life.

2. Leave some commitments:

People have different daily commitments. Some of these commitments are not really that important, or even harmful. Nearly everyone has commitment in/with work, home, kid’s activities, community events, religious endeavors, hobbies and the list goes so. However, sometimes you have to cut off some of these in order to have a sense of order in your mind. If your mind is cluttered, this gets directly reflected on your life as a whole.

Commitment, after all, is the quality or state of being dedicated to an activity or cause. You can make becoming a minimalist your cause.

3. Disallow negativity:

Negative emotions and thoughts are completely useless. It is true that you have to have a sort of balance in your emotions. However, too much of anything is harmful. Take active responsibility of your mind, and orient your emotional side to work for your daily life benefit. As mention above, if your mind is cluttered, this gets directly reflected on your life as a whole. The more cheerful and easy-going you are, the more organized and minimal your lifestyle becomes.

4. Pay your debts:

The first thing you have to start with concerning your negative emotions is to pay your debts. If you have to pay back a big amount of money, you better start today. As it goes, procrastination is like a credit card: it is a lot of fun until you get the bill. That small amount of money you could save a month ago is actually a good start.

If this means that you have to sacrifice somethings so that you can pay your debts, then be it. It is better to pay today what you are going to pay anyways and have peace of mind than procrastinating and feeling down to your knees.

5. Unplug yourself:

It feels really good to be in a constant touch with your family and friends. However, too much social media and internet is bad. If you really cannot spend a day without checking your Facebook notifications and messages, your Whatsapp, or your Instagram, then you should probably reduce your social media consumption.

There is a very good lifehack or experiment you can try. Start by setting a day in which you are not going to use anything electronic; weekends work well in this case. Notice attentively your behaviors and your communication skills. As the day goes by and comes to an end, create a sort of a sentimental reference in your brain and compare the day of this lifehack and the day after. You will notice that on the first day, you are more free, however, you feel an internal urge or need to go online. This in itself is a very good reason why you have to cut off your social media consumption.

6. Reduce multi-tasking:

It is true that multi-tasking is very beneficial, especially when you have a lot of things to get done. However, it is also scientifically proven that multi-tasking increases your level of stress and lowers your productivity. This happens because our brain focuses 100 percent on only one thing. When you have two or three tasks going on at the same time, it becomes much harder to focus and be productive.

There are many steps you can take if you want to replace multi-tasking. You can start by making clear priorities and work on each task separately, also make sure you start early in the morning. Then, limit distractions; if you have to use your laptop to get the task done, close everything that is not relevant to the task at hands. Also, put your phone on silent mode. Finally, set a proper environment that is conducive to focus.
