Capacity: You’ve had enough.

Talking about minimalist life is a very interesting thing for me. And it makes me want to keep improving it continuously. Previously I have written a little about the concept of minimalist, you can read about it in this minimalist life post.

When we want more of something, even though we may not really need what we want, it becomes one of those little tricky issues that involve a variety of feelings. Yeah, I think maybe we’re still not satisfied with some of the things we have right now.

Then how to deal with it?

As I studied and improved my way of life on this subject, I finally realized that there are many variables that keep us from making continuous purchases. The process of breaking this habit takes time. Because it takes a process in making us finally aware about it. And maybe these is one of the tips you can follow:

  1. Realize that you already have everything you need to have.
    When you have everything you need, such as food, clothing, shelter, loved ones, realize that everything else is just extra.
  2. Learn to stop buying things you don’t need.
    It’s sounds difficult, isn’t it? but must be implemented immediately. Again, before buying things we must repeatedly ask ourselves “Is this an absolute necessity?” or another way we can write a list of items you want to buy for a month; sort by priority needed. If after a month you still want it, you can buy it considering the questions above.
  3. Learn to be happy by doing, not having.
    Do something that makes you happy, like talking to a close friend, cooking, exercising, or doing something interesting. By shifting our focus to this, the desire for buy things will also decrease little by little.
  4. Learn the concept of enough
    The idea that we don’t always need more stuff – once we get to a certain point, that’s enough for us. Learn to recognize when sufficiency has been reached.

Having a lot of stuff, but still wanting more is an endless cycle. And we need to learn to have enough when we have enough, and to be happy with what we have.



Minimalist Life

A few weeks ago, I read several articles about create a minimalist life. I think it’s very interesting, and I still can’t take it seriously. And here I will share about minimalist life.

Minimalist life is getting rid of unnecessary things to make room for what makes you happy. Minimalist life is not always about living inadequately. It is actually the path for us to:

  1. Have more freedom
  2. Have more time
  3. Have more space for important things
  4. Not feeling worry too much
  5. Have a lot more happiness
  6. More economical
  7. More environmentally friendly
  8. Healthier

So how to be able to apply minimalist life continuously?
The first thing to do is :

  • Realize that we have had enough, no longer need a lot of things. Having enough with what you have is important!
  • Tidy things up. Don’t fall apart! If you are lazy to tidy it up every day, do it once a week. Slowly, but you have to start
  • Simplify your schedule. Remove your activities that are not necessary, so that you can breathe. Focus on what is important
  • Sorting all your activities, from activities that are important and not important. Then do it continuously

Those are some simple way to implement a minimalist life.

Of course, it’s not easy to do as you think. But just start if you want to have it 😊

In a next post i will share more about these yaa!
