Do you know who are you? Have you ever asked yourself this question and came up with an answer?
What Apple is doing right and why I consider it to be minimalist
I was always an Android fan. I even remember resisting to buy one of the Samsung Android phones that had a Home button similar to iPhone. I remember saying in one of the forums that "I'll never touch anything that resembles an iPhones". Today I'm fully inside the Apple ecosystem. Why?
Things I wish I knew when I started with Minimalism
I don't remember when or why I started with minimalism. Knowing myself I've probably read about it somewhere, then watched a video and eventually my mind was changed. But now, few years later, I wish someone told me the following things before I started my declutter journey towards minimalist life.
Internet is killing your brain
People who smoke usually know that smoking might prematurely kill them. Or if not kill, then give them cancer, stroke, heart disease, lung disease and etc. People who drink alcohol are aware that they will have liver problems and might prematurely die. Eating processed food leads to obesity which in turns might lead to cardiovascular disease. Its all known, its hard to argue with it, the data is there (look at sources in NHS, WHO, CDC). But very few people know that internet damages your brain.
Minimalism and Sustainability
When you get interested in Minimalism, one of the first question you ask your self is - "What do I do with the stuff that I don't need?". Well, the obvious answer might be - throw it away. But sometimes, the things that I don't need are things that still work or function properly. And throwing away a working item, makes me... sad.
So I came up with the following 5 step system to help me decide what to do with an item that no longer "sparks joy" (c).
