We’ll also go over some resources that will help you get started on simplifying your life! So if you’re ready to start living an easier, more fulfilling life, then read on!
To get started, let’s talk about how to define a “lifestyle”. A lifestyle is the way of life that someone leads. It includes all aspects of their daily routine from what they were for breakfast. To where they spend some spare time on weekends. In today’s day and age, it might be difficult to find people. Who lead a simple lifestyle because everything seems more complicated than ever before! From using new technology like smartphones and tablets at work to going out on dates with our loved. Ones via Uber or Lyft instead of driving ourselves; we’re always trying something new. While this may seem great at first glance, too much change can make us feel overwhelmed and stressed out! This isn’t exactly how you want your life to look each day, is it?
- It’s time for us to slow down and appreciate the little things in life. But how do we start this process of simplifying our lives without feeling overwhelmed or stressed out? It’s simple! You just have to get started one step at a time. This means that you should try doing something different each day that will help simplify your life more than before until it becomes a normal routine for you. Let’s go over some tips on how you can accomplish this goal! First off, let me tell you about my favorite method: The One Page Lifestyle by James Altucher. What I love most about his philosophy is its simplicity; he manages to cover every aspect of minimalist living in only one page which makes it very easy to follow! As he puts it, “The One Page Lifestyle is about owning less stuff. It’s living with only what you need or even less than that.”
In other words, you should only own the things that are essential to your life.
So if someone asked me what I thought they needed to live a more simplified lifestyle, here’s my list of essentials.
- You can see how simple it is! As James says in his book about The One Page Lifestyle, “I’ve found over and over again with most people that once we start getting rid of stuff there’s no end to the amount we find.” This holds for me because when I started living by this philosophy it changed my life forever. Now let’s go over some tips on how you can simplify your life even further with less stuff! First off, get yourself a smartphone but make sure not to be overly attached to it. You should only bring your phone with you when it’s necessary to do so. It can be helpful for this purpose though because they give us access to the internet anytime we need it, but that doesn’t mean that you should use them all day long!
- Simplifying your life is by not owning any TV channels or cable subscriptions at all. You might think I’m crazy here and asking “But if someone wanted to watch their favorite show on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, etc., how could they possibly accomplish this?” The solution here would be simple: borrow someone else’s login information! If you know anyone who has these services then ask them nicely if you can have their username and password; most people are happy to share the login information to their favorite streaming services with you. Not only can borrowing passwords save your life, but it’s also a great way for them to return the favor when they need something from you too!
- I recommend is buying used items instead of new ones. Whether you’re looking at clothes or furniture this rule applies to pretty much everything here except food and drinks since no one else wants those after someone eats or drinks them anyways! The reason why I think everyone should do this is that if we buy things secondhand then there’s less demand in the market which means prices will go down even more than usual so we can get these products for cheaper than ever before. Plus, most people don’t care about what condition an item is in as long as it still works just fine which is why they’re willing to sell them at such a cheap price.
This brings me to my next and final tip: you should only buy things that are essential for your survival. This means no more spending money on clothes, furniture or anything else unless. It’s necessary for the quality of your life! Think about how good you’ll feel if you can stop wasting so much time shopping around all day looking for cheaper prices when there’s an even better option right now! Plus, this will also help us save up some extra cash along the way so we can afford expensive items like cars or houses without breaking the bank too soon.
Now I know what you might be thinking here – “But Jesse, what about all of the things that I could have if I just spent more money?” Well, let me ask you this question back – “What are those items going to do for you in your life?” As James often says on his blog, “As long as there’s a roof over your head and food on the table then everything else is extra.”
Conclusion: Those are my top tips for simplifying your life with less stuff! It can be difficult at first since we’ve been conditioned our whole lives to live by consumerism but it isn’t difficult once you get used to living like this. Don’t forget though; everyone has different needs so make sure not to take these tips too literally because they might work differently depending on where you’re from and what your lifestyle is like.
