Four Tips to NOT be Overwhelmed with Minimalism

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the process of decluttering here are some tips that have helped me throughout my inexperience years of decluttering and minimalizing.

First, let me say that everyone is unique. I remember when I started this journey to live more and own less. I wanted to be perfect at it. I wanted to have the stark white walls and tons of money. My goals when I first started this journey was not actually what I really wanted. I just interpreted what I saw as the cure to my problems according to other people’s values.

Now, I am at a place that my reasons for choosing this way of life are to make my life simple. I enjoy challenges, and I appreciate the time I have because of the small choices I make every day, over time.

Do I still get overwhelmed? Um….yes, habits are hard to change and once you think you completed breaking a habit there comes another one popping up from under the first habit’s rug.

The point is that everything you do should be for you and your lifestyle. There is no perfect answer or advice. You just need to figure out what works for you and be flexible to change.

So, the first tip that I found to be helpful is to have more of a mindset over circumstances. When you cultivate the intention of minimizing, you can do more of what you really value and to see your truths. You really just have to be able to continually recognize and discover the things that are distractions and mindfully remove them from your life.

Establishing a consistent mindset of living minimally, your ability to distinguish what is essential to and not of value is important for the longevity of the lifestyle.

Number two, choose a system and then stick with it until you can recognize what is working in that system and what is not serving you. There are different styles for decluttering and living minimum. It doesn’t really matter which one you pick but whichever one you choose to stick with it. You can switch later after you’ve experienced the act of decluttering and have enough self-awareness to understand the direction you need to go to further your journey.

Number three, it does feel really fabulous to declutter. Your space looks more prominent and well organized. You sold some items and made some money. You even donated a chunk of your possessions to people and organizations. You are boosting your positive mind and a healthy outlook in life.

It’s all surprisingly satisfying, but it’s actually the small and continuous modifications that add up over time. The consistent results are from choosing a method, and it’s the method of creating the experience to all you to decide what you want out of your life and journey. The smaller actions make the most significant difference it just takes time to see the transformations happening in your life. This is why sticking with a plan is essential because you want to see results. You want to change your lifestyle, there really isn’t an easy fix.

Number four is about being able to keep the movement going and keep the drive running. It really is about building that experience by creating a story to make healthy decisions for you and your lifestyle. You want to know what you want and what you don’t want. It will get more comfortable if you continually make your space exhibit your life’s desire. Finally, when things get tough, and things will get tough, your space will help you remember your process and your “why” to your journey.

The things that you need to do to maintain your life on a daily basis can serve with all of those things that you change in your life. This includes that overwhelming pressure to the smile for the sun that you feel. Decluttering is a personal journey. You have to start somewhere and make it about you. What is something you need to change right now? — start there.
