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.
