When I started my minimalist journey, it was mostly because I became hyper-aware of how much I had let stuff dictate my life and how I saw my own worth as a person. Living your life for things won’t get you very far, especially when there is always some new cool thing you want. It’s a vicious cycle of spending and unhappiness. However, as I began practicing minimalism in every area of my life, I began finding that along with it, I was gaining more mental and spiritual clarity. I was less stressed and had developed a bigger vision for what I wanted from my life. It’s insane how much minimalism can affect our brains and mental health for the better. Here are a few ways you can make massive change today.

When I was a teenager I thought facing my fears was something like jumping out of an airplane. But that’s too easy. It’s easy because most people would feel a surge of fear jumping out of an airplane. Not everyone would climb under the covers in fear after sharing a story about how their family downsized houses. Yeah, that happened to me. After I shared our story I was so afraid that I literally hide under my covers for hours. From who? No clue. But the fear was very real. So what kind of fears are you being held back by and what could you accomplish if you were no longer held back? Here’s some inspiration from my Year of Fear.
Never did I ever think I would be someone who thrived in a routine type setting. Although I suppose it seems natural since my brain tends to be all over the place. Having a schedule seems like a necessary thing that prevents my life from being total chaos. While I do not live on a super strict schedule (in my opinion), doing a sort-of time-blocking system has really proven effective for homeschooling while running my own online business from home.
There is a ton of information about self-help on the shelves these days. Right? So much so that your mind just might explode from the massive amount of information consumption. What this over-load of info can lead to is people repeatedly trying different tactics and techniques that leave them living in a total state of chaos.

While I do love this concept and see where the benefits lie, I also found goal setting to be a bottomless pit of despair. That might sound dramatic, but that’s pretty much what it felt like. As I quietly snuck out of the goal-setting culture I began to find that there were others like me and that this whole goal-setting thing can actually lead to so major setbacks. If you’ve been struggling with setting and sticking to your goals, here are some reasons why it might not be working for you.
