Over the past few decades, our close knit, self-involved culture has added new social pressure to our lives. Social networks have been programmed in a way to make us want to buy more, do more and show more than ever. In our constant pursuit to compensate, our closets become overflowing and our spirits weighed down.
The answer to this modern day dilemma is minimalism-
At its core, ”Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it.”
It allows you to be in control of your life and shake off many of the consumerist burdens we put on ourselves. Our space, serenity and focus are improved when we consume less. Our schedules become lighter and less hectic, time with family no longer involves multi-tasking, and our homes become a cozy haven — our sacred space where we can get inspired and create.
Here are some ways by which you can use this practice to improve the quality of our life:
A digital detox:
Keep a check on your screen time as we tend to waste essential productive time mindlessly scrolling, which may also affect our mental health. You can also choose to delete unused apps, and add them to your wish-list on App stores so you can go back to them if needed.
While it may feel like they last forever, they don’t. Expired products can be toxic and irritating to the skin and need to be disposed off.
While it may be sentimental to keep your OG iPod, it might be good to discard old pieces of technology as they constantly get updated and become more efficient with newer models.
Clothes and shoes:
Favourites that are totally worn down. It’s never a good feeling to continue wearing your cherished items if they are looking shabby and make you feel unkempt.
Buy jewelry that is elegant and in line with the modern woman as it-
- Works with any outfit combination- casual or formal,
- Softly frames features and makes them look more delicate
- Can be worn everyday or multiple times a week,
- Can be stacked without worrying about being over-the-top
- Finally, easy to take on-the-go and feels super light and fresh when worn.
