Powerful But Unexpected Minimalist Lifestyle Tips

Simply + Fiercely

I’ve been pursuing a minimalist lifestyle for nearly a decade now, but it hasn’t always been easy for me.

In fact, it took me years to go from “wanting to be a minimalist” to actually following through and making any noticeable changes in my life.

It took a while but fortunately, I eventually had a breakthrough—and that’s what I want to share with you today.

It’s creating a clear understanding of your values and priorities. Reflect on your life and ask yourself what’s important?

Get clear on what matters

When I make self-care a priority, I have less mental clutter and less stress, which means it is easier to take a minimalist approach to life.

Make self-care a priority

Plan trips away, nights out with friends, or unique adventures like wine tours or art classes. Start working your way through your bucket list and get reacquainted with the joy of doing things vs owning things.

Spend more on experiences

I had to learn to practice gratitude and appreciate the little things, instead of wishing my life away. I started meditating, journaling, and doing activities I love such as painting and yoga.

Experiment with mindfulness

It’s OK to take small steps. Work at your own pace and instead of getting frustrated, treat your “failures” as opportunities to learn. Be patient and, of course, kind to yourself.

Make peace with slow progress
