I am an extreme minimalist. Life is more with less.
I own less than 300 items and live an incredible life. Here are a few common questions I receive about my lifestyle choice.
What are the benefits to having less stuff?
There are many benefits to living with less, including more free time to do the things you love, less household cleanups, and less physiological stress on your mind and body. You will soon realize that your experiences are more important than your possessions.
Could I live a happy life with many household items?
Absolutely! There are people who can manage well with more items, it really depends on your desire and motive in the first place. I come across people who are quite content with more items, and those who are completely lost in the material world, with no clear life direction. Those who are lost will find the minimalism movement to be worthwhile and potentially life-changing.
Why did you decide to pursue minimalism?
I realized that I had no hobbies, no passions, and no life experiences at the age of 25. Something had to change. Minimalism was a radical change in my lifestyle in order to reverse the downward spiral I was experiencing. Looking back, I am glad to have gone from 1000’s of pieces of clutter owned in my home to less than 300 and more life experiences.
Is minimalism a fad?
I believe our lives contain more stressful, demanding, and life-threatening situations than ever before. People are looking for an escape, a way to reclaim a life worth living. Minimalism is a new way to design your lifestyle for the better, and I see it sticking for good.
