6 Reasons Why Minimalism Will Keep Adding Value To Your Life (while still keeping your life uncluttered)
There are many lifestyle fads and trends that promise us a better life, they seem to catch on quick and fade out fast. From fashion, to fitness to tech – it only makes sense that not everything can make a big impact. Why? Well, because these trends may change small parts of your life, but they aren’t life-changing. For example, a new diet isn’t going to impact your purchase behaviours, just as a new Apple watch won’t help you get outside and make more experiences, but rather the opposite. We are often bombarded with lifestyle trends that are “all the rage,” while some of them are totally valid (say, intermittent fasting), others are total bougas (like leggings under shorts for men – may we all please put this one behind us). When it comes to making a change in your life, it’s time you’ve seriously thought about becoming a minimalist.
Weather you’re the type of person always forgetting things,like the sunglasses on top of your head, or you have a specific chair in your bedroom you plan your outfits on for each day and have a notebook full of lists – there is no doubt that we all forget things sometimes no matter how hard we try. And we can all agree, when you really need something, such as some files for a presentation, or a bag for groceries – we have a sinking feeling in our stomch picturing it sitting out our kitchen counter, ready to go out the door with us that morning. It’s completely human forget things, especially when we’re busy, running around from task to task, thinking of 27 other things at the same time. That’s exactly why we love tips and tricks to make our life a little easier and help us in remember those little things on our busy days. And, of course, we all have keys, probably a lot of them, so here’s how to organize and add to your keyring so you never forget the important things.
So, it’s important for you for your headphones to stay in tack, because they weren’t cheap, and let’s be real, you’re in love with them.

As much as we would like to avoid first impressions making a lasting imprint, the reality is, they do. We are human, and unfortunately, we automatically paint a picture in our heads of what we think the person is like before we get to know them personally. Although, sometimes this never lasts, it is certainty there for the time being, before you meet that person again, or get to know them. Essentially, no matter how much you try not to judge, or try not to assume, first impressions are a reality, and sometimes taken really seriously. They can be the reason you do not get a job, or the reason you get scammed. They can separate friendships or begin relationships. They are seriously important. So, even if you have a winning personality and an exciting life, if your first impression says differently, the hash reality of it is, people will not treat you like they see you, and maybe it’s not necessarily how you are. Many things in our personality are hard to show through a first impression, but luckily, defining your personal style can help a lot. Here are 6 slip ups to avoid and how to fix them, so you can still own your personal style, and make a good impression while doing so.
Products that are more necessary, like a cell phone, footwear, or even your car take a decent amount of maintenance to keep them working the way they should. Typically, the more functional the product is the more you use it, which explains ware-and-tare on them. They’re your most beloved products, so you should give them a break and take good care of them. Here’s some tips on how to take care of your phone (probably your most used product).
With the hundreds of songs coming out every day, its obvious music is gaining a higher importance in peoples lives. It’s becoming more and more accessible and underground artists are popping up all over. Even your dad has downloaded new music on his iPod and plugs his headphones in from time to time. If this isn’t the case, you probably have one of those friends (or you’re one of them even) that is consistently listening to music. It’s like a life line.
Nothing says hipster like a smart pair of glasses frames….. Especially if their vintage… or vintage looking… or clear frames…. or wire frames…. Oh 🤔, I guess you just HAVE to have glasses…. OH YEAH, and if you’re a guy – you HAVE to have a beard too Anyway (I digress, I digress) The thing […]
There’s an epidemic happening right now. Millions of people are catching on to the fact that we’ve went through the past 2 decades accumulating more stuff than we need. Persuading marketing campaigns shouting to the masses to buy this product and buy that product. Remember those flashy ads promising you that you’d be like Justin Timberlake if you bought those Calvin Klein jeans? Or what about the first Apple iPod commercial? How Iconic was that? Do you have an Apple iPod, and phone, computer, and iPad, and… Do you see where I’m going with this? Nowadays we have more stuff than we need and can account for, but fortunately – we’re gaining awareness of this. We’re putting aside those useless flashy products and going back to what is necessary, and not overkill. We’re appreciating functionality and quality over quantity and fads. We’re making a switch to owning less and experiencing more, identifying the essential and eliminating the unnecessary. So, here’s 17 ways to do exactly that:
It’s more likely than not that you know someone who has decluttered their life recently. Weather it be that they sold their stuff, bought a van and travelled or just moved into their new home. Or even simply that they just adapt to the mindset that less is more – in all aspects of life. The minimalist lifestyle covers quite a few core aspects of your life, which then boils down to a deep awareness about you know, materialistic things and subtracting things that aren’t necessary. And, as Christmas rapidly approaching it can be hard to know what to get that is something that you know they would truly love, in their everyday life. Something useful and functional, or maybe not even a “thing” at all! The lifestyle has an understanding of experiences being worth more than just “things,” and at the same time, an enormous appreciation for products that last. Good quality products that limit the use of other “add on products.” So, with those two avenues to go down, it can seem a litter easier, but sometimes it’s hard to sift through good or bad quality products or to decide what type of experience you want to give them. So, we’ve done some of that searching for you and here are some of the best gift ideas to get a person who has adapted the minimalist lifestyle!
It’s quite clear your personal style is something that its completely unique to you. No one is going to have their same favourite necklace that they always wear or their favourite vintage sweater from their grandmother they pull as soon as the leaves start to change. But, sometimes it can definitely be a statement, and unfortunately, misunderstood by some. Dressing up at the wrong event can cause people to judge you as snobby, or dressing in sneakers and jeans at a formal event can definitely be taken as a sign of disrespect.
