For many, the idea of minimalism seems too difficult a transition to navigate to. However, if you can make the commitment you are sure to find a few unexpected surprises of minimal living.
You Have More Quality Time For What Matters Most
When you have less space to clean, and fewer things to organize you have more time to invest in things you find fulfilling.
You Love Everything You Own
Truth be told, you may make a few mistakes in your initial downsize that require you to make a few more investments. However, once you identify the things that make your space the most comfortable and productive—you will find that you genuinely appreciate everything you own.
No More Clutter Reduces Your Stress
Clutter is chaotic, and chaos is stressful. When you commit to minimal living, there will be no more clutter, because everything has a designated space.
Minimalists tend to invest more per purchase, focusing on performance, quality, and lifespan. While individual purchases may cost more, it is likely that your overall budget will take a major nose dive. For example, less shopping for clothing’s—or buying eBooks versus real books which are always a bit cheaper, and takes up less space.
These are just a few of the unexpected gifts of minimal living, but you are sure to identify at least a few more.
