6 Ways to Practice a Minimalist Lifestyle
Do and Do Not
What is a Minimalist Lifestyle?
The minimalist lifestyle is a re-understanding of oneself and a re-definition of freedom.
Please take a deep look at yourself, understand what is most important thing to you, and then use your limited time and energy to pursue it in a focused way to maximize your happiness.
Toss things that don’t work, perceive mental activities that cause trouble, and live to achieve maximum mental freedom.
Minimize Your Desire
- Know your genuine desire, don’t get distracted by external trends, don’t blindly follow the trend.
- Devote all your energy to your most pressing desires, such as professional advancement, caring for your family, caring for your friends, pursuing good food, etc.
- Understand, select, and focus on 1-3 spiritual activities that you want to engage in and thoroughly learn and improve.
- Don’t blindly waste your time and energy.
- Throw away, give away, sell or donate anything you haven’t used in your home for more than a year. Magazines and books you read, clothes you no longer wear, gifts or decorations you received earlier.
- Don’t buy things you don’t need after you know your wants and needs.
- When you do have what you need, buy the best and make the most of it.
- Don’t stock up on cheap, substandard goods.
- Use cloth bags instead of plastic and paper bags.
- Replace a mountain of Rollerball pens with only a good pen.

What is GTD?
Getting Things Done, also known as GTD or the GTD method, is a self-management method developed by David Allen in which you record all your personal and professional tasks on to-do lists. Since you no longer have to expend any energy on remembering these tasks, your mind is free to concentrate on the task at hand.
- Clean up your email, so it doesn’t pile up.
- Focus on one thing at a time and avoid multi-tasks as much as possible.
Live as a Minimalist
- Slow down.
- No ineffective socializing.
- Dress simply.
- Eat fewer foods that contain additives.
- Drink plain water and fruit juice instead of carbonated drinks and fruit juice with lots of chemicals.
There are many ways to practice minimalism, but the key is to take action.
