Surprise! Minimalist Monday is now going to be a weekly post because of how much y’all love it! Thank you so much for all of the support.
When becoming a minimalist, the last step is always decluttering mental baggage. We too often worry about what we can see, instead of focusing on the issues that keep us up at night. By clearing out the things that hold me back, I’ve slept better, breathed easier, and thought clearer. Having fewer things already helped a lot, but by removing everything I didn’t need to remember, didn’t need to use, I felt a weight lifted off of my shoulders. Now that I’ve talked about how this is helped me, I’m going to explain how I did it.
Thoughts aren’t always the easiest thing to get rid of, especially when we’ve been through bad times. The way I did it might not be the easiest or most desirable solution, but I personally don’t know how else I could have done it. The key to mental stability for me, was going far away from home, turning off social media and everything that was bothering me, and telling someone everything. It seemed so hard at the time but looking back at it now, it was so easy. Everything that had happened, everything that had been bothering me, left as soon as I said it.
You might be thinking that it’s not important enough to do or might seem too hard, but it is so worth it. You can’t fully be a minimalist if you still have baggage holding you down and keeping you from who you can become. Minimalism has been life-changing, and I hope maybe it can change your life too for the better.
