Becoming a minimalist is new word that is catching up. The other day I met a young man who was traveling internationally expanding his business. During the conversation he pointed out that ” I am a minimalist“. The word sounded familiar but made me curious what it entails per him or for that matters for myself. What he meant was that he carries less stuff with him while traveling and it implied a great deal for me. I am traveling too through this journey of life, so less not more is what it takes for an easy journey.
Every one has to draw his own boundaries in being a minimalist. It can be being free of unnecessary holdings in your life, ranging from the clutter in the closet to the clutter in the head. It is your choice as to how much weight can you carry around. You can be free of clutter from the closet just by disowning and making more room but clutter from the head takes a great deal of effort to get rid off.
“Reduce your screen time” can be your first step in decluttering your head. Do that for one week and see the result.
