The Benefits of Minimalism

By this point, you know what a negative effect clutter can have on your life. As we’ve discovered over the last few posts, this includes both physical and mental clutter. The practice of minimalism involves reducing the stuff in our lives, both mentally and physically. In essence, minimalism is about focusing on what matters most. In a lot of cases, this means focusing on experiences and people over “stuff”. There are numerous benefits of minimalism when it comes to improving your frame of mind and leading to calm. Let's explore a few of the big ones.




Spending Less Money

When you make a focused effort to rid your life of physical possessions and keep what you own to a minimum, you'll begin to consider your purchases far more carefully to avoid filling up your home with unnecessary clutter. Since spending less money ultimately leads to accumulating less stuff, your mind and your wallet will both thank you!


Knowing What Matters

By paring down your possessions and the people in your life, you'll be forced to decide what matters most. You'll gain more value from what you allow into your space, and you'll start to really prioritize. This is guaranteed to bring you increased satisfaction and peace.


Obtaining More Freedom

When you become free of your attachment to certain things, you’ll quickly realize what you’ve been attached to that does not serve you. After realizing it, you’ll find yourself in a place to let go, which is very liberating. This liberation of letting go is invigorating and rejuvenating to your soul.


Making More Room

By purging all the things that don't matter, you'll be clearing space for what does. You’ll no longer feel smothered and overwhelmed by your surroundings or by the non-material things that stress you out. With the clearing of this space, you’ll automatically have more room for the meaningful things, people, and moments of your life.

Improving Mood

As a society, we're taught to value materialism and to collect stuff. The more practice we get with releasing what no longer serves us and deciding what matters most, the calmer and more peaceful we will feel. You will likely notice an increase in your general well-being, joy, and positive outlook on life.


Increasing Confidence

Once you begin to let go of what's no longer necessary, you'll grow more secure in your decision-making, and you'll feel motivated in your capabilities. The ability to make the decisions about what and who to let go of will lead you to a more courageous place in your life. In this place, you’ll fear less due to your decreased attachment and your new perspective on what matters most.


Yes, a life of minimalism leads to calm. It also comes with a host of other wonderful benefits you'll start to see rather quickly as you purge things and pare down.
