With the new year fast approaching, taking an inventory of your financial well-being can shape how you look at future years to come. Analyzing the progress you’ve made, whether it is building up that savings account you opened or hacking away at your student debt, are wins you should take pride in! There are also areas you may have stumbled, maybe you had to take money out of your savings account or you used your high-interest credit card a bit more than you would have liked and those balances are a little too high. These roadblocks happen, life happens, a pandemic even happens; you assess the damage to your progress and go from there.
The art of minimalism has been slowly but surely taking the interests of people.
It can be incorporated not just in how we ‘tidy up’ or design our home, but also in the way we dress. It can even be applied to intangible items such as how we spend our time, or in the relationships that we currently have.
Starting this lifestyle would require drastic changes to most of us. It could involve giving up on a lot of things (and people).
But eventually, the pros would outnumber the cons. After all, these changes would clear up not just your home but your mind as well.
Simply speaking, minimalism revolves around living with only the things you need and feel happy about.
I think it’s safe to say all of us are praying that 2021 is a less horrifying year than 2020. In fact, at this point I think the only resolution anyone will really have is to not go totally insane. Personally, I have stopped setting resolutions a while ago. At least stopped setting them in the traditional sense. However, one thing that I think we are all in control of is how we feel about ourselves. Which is what got me thinking about affirmations. So many people think they are BS (and I get why) and others try them out and they don’t really stick. That’s why I wanted to share a little information that can really help anyone speak better about themselves in 2021 and how to do it in a more effective way.
I think there is oftentimes this misconception that you don’t get to be an “outdoorsy” person while also caring about your appearance. If I may, I would like to request that this silly belief be put to an end right now. Over the years, I have definitely learned to simplify my makeup routine into a more minimalist style, and I definitely simplify it even more before hiking or backpacking. I’m not suggesting we all haul along a celebrity-sized makeup kit on our hiking adventures. What I am saying is that there are some sneaky ways to keep up appearances while spending most of your time in nature. Here is a look into some of the best products and hacks for applying minimal makeup when camping or hiking — and don’t worry, it won’t take up much room in your backpack!
Before, the best way to save money in traveling is to have a cheap plane ticket. However, as flight fares become affordable to the masses, airline companies have increased their baggage fees.
It is dreadful for travelers to pay for expensive additional baggage costs. The best way to get away with these expensive fees is to become informed about how you can pack less.
