When you delve into an elegant person on the outside, you will surely discover that they have inner simplicity. In his mind, in his attitude, in his manner.

There is nothing more attractive than a direct and simple person who arrives without frills to everyone.

And that transmits to you that his mind is simple, not because of a lack of intelligence, but because he has the ability to eliminate the thoughts that interfere in every moment of his life, and to keep the ones he does need.

And one of the consequences of eliminating everything that is left over is having a minimalist lifestyle.

One of the things that cause me the most stress at home is seeing clutter and excess gossip that are not useful or necessary for our family life.

On the other hand, it also causes me stress to have my mind full of millions of ideas and thoughts that make me feel unproductive because it is impossible to carry everything at once.

Actually, although it seems superficial, comparing the mind with the house has a lot to do with it, why?

Because what makes you not want to let go of some extra gossip that you have at home, is the sentimental relationship that your mind has created with them. And the fear of thinking that if you get rid of them, there are some beautiful memories that you want to keep.

Now we will see how to change that attitude to many appliance repair and thoughts, so that they free up space in your mind and take away stress.

What is living with minimalism?

Have you realized in these months of confinement due to the pandemic that the only purchases we have made have been basic food products or basic necessities?

And that we all wish when we return to normal simply to be with the people we love?

Simplicity in our life, in all aspects.

It’s one of the lessons we’ve all learned from this bloody world situation.

An opportunity appears to eliminate from home all those gossip that we are accumulating without realizing it. They cause you much less happiness than you think when you save it.

You just have to detach your mind from each object you have at home and look at it from an objective perspective, what is it doing there? What is it for? Do I need it to make that corner more pleasant or more stressful?

That is influenced by your values, the value you give to something and why. Your mind and your home should reflect yourself, your values, what you like …

You begin to see that being happy does not have to do with the number of things you have at home or in your mind. There are things that do help you to be happy, but many others are filling and what they do is interfere with the important ones.

“Living without gossip” gives you the freedom to choose what you need to be happy, and just take care of it, leaving for another moment or eliminating completely those that do not contribute to you.
