11 Extreme Minimalist Habits for 2019

11 Extreme Minimalist Habits for 2019


Hello friends, this is Youheum. Today I’ll be sharing my extreme minimalist habits. I’m able to create this video through the sponsorship of Squarespace. If you want to focus on being productive with your website, e-commerce, or blog, Squarespace is the all-in-one platform to build your online creative project. I try my best to remove distracting labels on bottles and clothing tags. I also prefer clothing without branded marks. This is simply my own preference because I sometimes feel that these things can be too stimulating as an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) I accept that everyone’s approach to minimalism is very different. So feel free to do what nourishes your mind, body, and spirit. If keeping labels help you, I’m happy that you stick with what works for you. I used to let things pile up until the end of the month and now I focus on putting things back where it belongs right after I use it this way. I can increase my focus with fewer distractions in my environment because I get easily overwhelmed by clutter and distractions. I am happy to embrace the therapeutic value of minimalism. I enjoy the kind of peace and calm simple brings me. It’s very different from where I was in the past and it is good to arrive in this present moment. I commit to household duties whenever I can. I find it easier to clean regularly as much as possible instead of doing massive cleaning for hours at the end of the month or at the end of the year. So I get in the habit of tackling things bit by bit. This approach allows me to take things slow without rushing or procrastinating which I used to do. I rarely shop but when I do, I stay mindful and intentional. I take into consideration my budget, the quality of the product, ease-of-use, and sustainability. But I’m aware that I can not always be perfect with my eco-friendly practices. It’s important for me to get something that’s going to last a long time so that I don’t have to create additional waste. I also try to DIY and make things at home to keep my consumption minimal as much as possible. Also, feel free to let me know what you love making at home. And do you have any minimalist habits of your own? Feel free to share in the comments below. When I feel stuck in my journey I always reflect back on my feelings and emotions. So I meditate, pray, practice EFT, and The Healing Code for self-awareness. I value minimalism because it allows me to also go through emotional decluttering. I use it to let go of destructive and negative thoughts that come up. The easiest way to say NO to temptation like shopping in consumption is to be aware of my own feelings. I focus on healing the guilt, shame, and the resistance I have about saying NO to others. When I use time efficiently I can overcome the feeling of not having enough time and resources. And by keeping track of my time, I can be aware of what I want to do and what I am capable of doing within that day. So I manage my time in order to do things with ease and to avoid rushing through the process. I believe the pathway to success is in my willingness to surrender and learn from others with humbleness. I used to try to do everything on my own because I didn’t want to admit my imperfections. Now I find value in taking courses, reading books, seeking help from the community, and listening to what others have to say. I know that it’s difficult to commit to life changes all in one go so I focus on taking small steps, planning my goals mindfully, and managing my time with ease. I try to focus on doing my best in the present moment without forcing too much responsibility on myself. That’s why it’s important for me to manage my time wisely and to ask for help when needed. I value ease and comfort. I focus on productivity but not in a way that makes me feel burnt-out or exhausted. I can avoid exhaustion when I manage my time, energy, and money wisely through the right resources. Also, if you are a creative soul like me I know that it can feel tiring to do everything and that’s why I use tools like Squarespace for ease. Squarespace allows me to schedule posts and design my pages with easy to use tools. I truly value this because I don’t have to sacrifice my energy to keep up with my creative project.

  1. Grateful as always for your video, Helpful practices for sure. I have benefit a lot from digital decluttering (on phone and laptop). Deleting pictures I dont need, fast fashion apps etc and minimizing distractions to be more mindful, relaxed and productive. sending love and positivity from Ireland :3

  2. i searched for new informations about my city in the internet today and i just rode that there is a new zero waste shop in my city! When i weren't home i wanted to start practicing minimalism for the first time when i come home as u already know. And of course wanted to practice zero waste too but it would've been very difficult to make it without an shop for it. But now i can practice both of them! Minimalism (maybe extreme minimalism) and zero waste (+ i will go vegan)!!!!!!! i will start tomorrow and i'ts sooo exciting .thank u so much youheum for inspiring me to a better person and that i have a better life. literally thank you for everything……

  3. I can clearly say you have depression. For real. All this forced meditation, and mainly, all this dep·ri·va·tion
    is keeping you from reaching more meaningful and happy goals in life. You live like a monk, it's ok, but the moment you start to hold yourself to opportunities and facilities of life because ideals and pre-concepts you are not willing to give up, you are holding your own success and happiness.
    It's harder to declutter a pre-concept or idea, than any furniture.

  4. I have a tiny kitchen with little countertop space (under 50 square foot) so I keep the few small appliances that I have stored away except for a single serve coffee maker because it gets used everyday/several times a day.

  5. Hi Youheum, I missed your relaxing voice and I was late to watch your video.
    Recently I was stressed and I lost a lot of my time but doing breathing exercises and meditation was nice to shut my mind and clear it. For spending my time differently I did a diy crochet square box to put my stuff inside it as I want my books beside me + order my place in the same time. The only thing I couldn't manage it was launching my blog. But I said No and I find new ways to reject politely.
    About the tags I don't remove it but I try to order things by color more than category now.

  6. I'd love to know what the online tools you used were; I saw a budget app and a daily journal. Which ones do you use?

  7. I can use some help with minimalism:
    How do you deal with DVDs? I find it hard to choose which one's need to go because not all of the movies are on Netflix.
    And personal pictures and videos that are not digital? Once gone they're gone.

  8. I need to start by getting rid of all the junks that I download in my computer that drive me insane. GOAL: 1 folder on my screen with only very important information.

  9. This is basically obsessive compulsive disorder wrapped up in a nice 'ism'. Yet another distraction to keep otherwise well meaning people chasing their tails worrying about obscure details. Time is the only actual limited resource in this world of abundant natural resources.. and you are dwindling it away fretting about things that are "down-stream" from the actual problems of this world. If you want to make a difference start researching the petrol-chemical-elitist empire and the changes it made over the last 100 years. We need to side step these fuckers….The answer is not to save and recycle within the fake scarcity paradigm you are forced to live under. We need to move forward and start producing abundance with bio-compatible resources and eliminate the synthetic petrochemical empire. If you turn "bio" resources such as plants into plastics, fibers and other materials it doesn't matter how much you produce and if it goes to waste (you would only waste your "time" being inefficient), it can just be composted and reintroduced back into the cycle….bio materials = a closed loop system. DONT WASTE YOUR ONLY LIMITED RESOURCE "TIME" AND DO SOMETHING THAT WILL ACTUALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

  10. Thank you or sharing your experiences. You help me in the right moment, focusing whats important for me and my surrounding. Thank you so much:)

  11. I’m wondering if you know any minimalist moms out there? I’ve been interested in trying to go through the process and purge a lot of things I don’t need but since having my daughter six months ago, I feel that I’m slowly letting things build up again. I really like your videos for myself but am wondering how this is done with children as well. 🧡

  12. Maybe one day you will be sorry that you removed those labels–when you sicken by taking the wrong thing. How is it "minimalism" to have electronic devices. Maybe you should try to REALLY live minimally and do away with electronics! And heating and cooling. Dig a well and carry-pump your own water. Use candles and lanterns instead of electricity. We raised our children in the Rain Forest of the Amazon on dirt floors, mud walls, no heat, no electricity, no electronic devises. I constructed an outhouse. Our laundry and bathing facilities were a large river. True minimalist living involved having bats coming into the house. Snakes and tarantulas, as well. Hammocks were beds. You aren't fooling many of us who see you living well in your "minimalist" surroundings. LOL

    Am I the only one wondering where she "puts things back" since she doesnt have any piece of forniture?

    You look serene and peaceful with a soothing voice. I had gone through a tough life till now. Lost my parents, resigned to my job due to health issues, cancelled my marriage, suffering from a lot of health problems. I do try to follow minimalism by decluttering my wardrobe, utensils, old newspapers, apps and contacts from my mobile frequently.

    I follow what my dad taught me. I always give away my favorite thing/clothes/shoes/earrings/belonging to someone who is in need or whom I feel like giving. This is how we can follow sthitha prajnya (being neutral consciously as per bhagavadgeetha) and curb desires, detach ourselves from materialistic life. That's what my dad told me. Following this is my personal choice though.

    Thanks a lot for sharing your minimalist habits. Happy that I subscribed you today. Love and best wishes from India. 🇮🇳♥

  15. When I set my mind on minimal living, I stopped seeing beauty on brand name clothing and products, I stopped admire ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS bought in stores, I prefer to make my own natural products for my body etc.
    thank you for your videos, it’s very inspirational. ♻️

  16. I really appreciate that you make your own incense bundles from plants you grew yourself. Most bundles that people buy and sell are using sacred and endangered plants, which is not sustainable or respectful to indigenous cultures. Your way is sustainable, respectful, and equally effective.

  17. I am a new subscriber! I find your approach to minimalism inspiring and so do my children. Can you please tell me where you purchased that low table?

  18. I have shelves in my kitchen instead of cupboards. This increases the space and only one row of containers can fit, oppose to digging through the cupboard as everything is stacked in front. With the containers in a row, it’s much more aesthetic to the eye.

  19. I used to be a very messy person, I cleaned often but couldn't keep on top of clutter and was always looking for things which was very stressful. For the past 7 to 10 years I've been working very hard on organising my living space and always looked for ideas to maximise storage etc. But only recently I came to realisation that there is no need for a lot of storage if you don't own so many things. So I started gradually getting rid of stuff that I didn't need and most importantly I stopped buying new things. Not only I can see the difference in my bank account but I'm feeling so much happier in my home now. Thank you for your videos, I find them very inspiring.

  20. What’s an HSP? Btw I found your channel a couple of days ago, and the first video I saw, I thought it was a spoof of this lifestyle then I watched another and saw you’re legit and just felt so calm from your content/voice/lifestyle then I subscribed and now come to watch them to feel peaceful, love 🌿😊

  21. Thank you what a breath of fresh air!! I have always lived the minimalist life for the past 30 years and have been misunderstood. Thank you so much for explaining why. 🌺🙏🏾

  22. I am upset with this line, "I easily overwhelmed by clutter and distraction". So wait, you've been practicing minimalism for a decade and get easily overwhelmed by things people deal with daily? Sounds ..bad

  23. Without knowing .. even I always remove lables n cuts the brand tags .. dono y.. but now I know y.. thanks.. even I ll wear watch all the time in home also.. I always tired ma best to stay away from plastics

  24. You are so inspiring ♡ Masa Allah. Our beloved Muhammad (PBUH) also inspires us to live a simple minimalist life..your videos are helpful and i feel motivated as a muslim..I Hope you would spend a little time to study about islamic lifestyle what Prophet Mohammed (PUBH) inspires us. Probably not every muslim lives a simple minimalist life but it what we should do .. May Allah bless you …much love …♡♡♡♡♡

  25. When you take labels from bottles , how do u keep up with what is inside the bottle , expiry date, amount and how and when to use the product ?? I wont go this far i need labels

  26. Recently I decided to get rid of a lot stuff I didn’t use. My closet and living space has become a little decluttered and I try not to buy stuff I will later regret. I still have items I have to get rid of but I’m doing it as a process not an over night thing. I’m planning on moving back to my country and getting rid of materialistic habits will help me get used to what will be my new enviroment. I feel much better mentally and I have saved some money by not over spending.

  27. Where did you get your sprout tray and is it bamboo? I have one but it is plastic and I'd like to replace it with one like yours. Tfs ❤️

  28. after I had two kids, I became conscious about spending. I rarely shop clothes from the mall anymore instead I buy second hand clothes. I sold the clothes my kids outgrown already and now I only have what they wear and some of their baby clothes I like to keep.

  29. I use minamilisim in my organization system for my room. (Mostly!) And I try try try to do it for my notes for school, instead of doing my usual maximalist approach to note taking. 📖💙

    I try to be minimalist more and more but it's a process

  31. one of my favorite minimalist habits is knitting! learning just a few basic stitches allows me to make simple items at home such as a reusable cleaning rags, hats, or scarves. it’s also a great hobby for mindfulness and focus, and doesn’t take much investment or space in your home to pick up.

  32. your habits sound wonderful! I am not able to organzie and manage my time that well. but minimalism has for sure brought me more time, concentration and less stress. Thank you for your video!

  35. I love seeing how minimalist lifestyles are similar and different from person to person ♡♡♡ Thanks for sharing 😉
