    Over Minimalism? You’re Not Alone

    Are You Over Minimalism?

    While you may wholeheartedly believe in minimalism, the fact of the matter is it’s not for everyone. Whether you have adopted Project 333 or did a full-blown minimalistic purge and it’s not working for you—you’re not alone. Here’s what to do if you are over minimalism.

    Identify Why It’s Not Working

    If you initially loved your monochrome and easily mix and matchable wardrobe but now you are bored out of your mind—define what it is you miss and reinsert that back into your life. For example, do you want more patterns, colors, and items that you don’t have to wear every week? No problem. Even with as few as 10 new items, your wardrobe can feel entirely new. Or add more color and texture to your minimal interior design. You might be able to add just a bit more without totally abandoning minimalism, but you may be ready to move on and that’s ok too.

    Stop Focusing On Things

    While the goal of minimalism is in part to focus less on material possessions, for some minimalism creates an extreme focus on things. This includes daydreaming about everyday items or adopting an unreasonable attachment to the few possessions you have. This can be unhealthy, meaning it may be time to introduce more into your home to reduce your OCD.

    It Just Doesn’t Feel Right

    Your home is meant to be your haven and if your home no longer feels like a comfortable space then minimalism just isn’t for you—and that’s ok.

    If you gave it a try you are sure to have learned a lot along the way. Start reintroducing more of what brings you joy and create a new approach that is a better fit for you.
