In this video we talk about the difficulties for some who find it hard to keep their personal space uncluttered and organized and how minimalism can still work in their life. So it’s not all about getting rid of everything but rather keeping what has a purpose and a place in your life. So if you’re holding on to a certain item out of guilt or you don’t know what to do with it and can’t figure out where to put it, it’s possibly time to turn to a family or friend for help.
Pick someone who knows you well enough and can help you work through those piles of papers, stacks of books and many mementos. It’s difficult to appreciate material things when they are piled or stacked. If you truly want to enjoy what you have, make it accessible to your senses. Display it so that you can be reminded about why you chose to keep it. If you look at it over a a period of time and realize that you’re not enjoying it, toss it. Most importantly, don’t feel compelled to keep something because it’s important to someone else. Keep what’s important to YOU.
Not everyone needs to subscribe or adhere to the same practices of minimalism. You are unique and your style of minimalist living should reflect that.
