One quote I like all the time is – “Less is the new more”. This is my favorite quote not because it sounds good but because I really think this quote is the key to happiness.
One thing to be content in your life is to learn the power of giving up things.
Since childhood, I had this quality that I should keep everything with me. I am honestly saying that I had these qualities!
In my childhood home, my mother had a storage room, in which she had a huge collection of junk which she never used. But she did not want to lose everything. Whenever I visit my parents, and go to the storage room. I see my broken DVD player, the speakers from my college days and much more and the same stuff, which is now completely useless just my memories Huh.
Whenever I tell my mother that you can remove all these things from there. She says that she cannot do it because she has an emotional connection with those things and she feels that she will have these things any day Can be needed
I cannot blame them because what they told is a nature of humans. It is also very common, even it is accepted by all top corporations!
Have you ever wondered why Apple opened its physical stores where anyone can go and try Apple products?
Apple is using psychology behind the ownership of marketing its products and it is doing great work for them and for many other companies. Without a doubt Apple’s products are great, but it is Apple’s stores that made them the
1- Computing brand in the world. Apple uses ownership psychology to market its brands.
Whenever we hold something in our hands, we feel that thing. Whenever you hold an Apple product or any other product in an experience store in your hand you want to buy that product / You feel connected with everything that you hold and touch. This is the main reason that all the big gadget companies have started opening their physical stores.
This is also one of the reasons that all relationship experts also suggest that we hold the hands of our loved ones because this is a powerful way to connect one to the other.
The point here is that we connect with everything around us and also with those whom we meet in life. Who also have a lot of trouble leaving us. We have a lot of rate of going out of old things in our house so that we do not need them someday We also feel sorry for leaving our old relationships because they have accepted us for some reason in the past, we fear its loss
“Let go” is a powerful phrase which is a powerful phrase that can change your life right now.
Last year when I realized the importance of the concept that “Less is the new more”, I started ridding myself of things that were no longer of any use to me. I started giving them to people around me who needed them or who they could sell.
It was not easy to leave the things that I used for years, but as soon as I started clearing the things closest to me I realized that a lot of burden has been reduced from my life. This also made a difference to my fans buying new things.
Last year I shred all my high school grade sheets, certificates which I did not need anymore. I got rid of all the documents that I once considered too valuable to keep but now I realized that there is no need for them.
It was a difficult task while I was doing it but soon I realized that everything I discarded reduced my anxiety.
It has been a year since I rescued myself from all these things and according to my experience I feel comfortable to offer you to follow the life hack given below: –
Get rid of such stuff that you no longer need and which no longer matters in your life.
Give your old things to people who will need them and or give it to a charity who will find such people automatically who will need them. It can be a collection of books. A collection of clothes that you don’t wear anymore, and anything else that was once important to you but not now. Let those things go so that you can move forward and empty your rooms for more good things to come.
The benefits that I have seen by following the concept of “Less = More”:
This is the biggest pain in the process of giving up things that I have noted so far. Now I don’t need to worry about those gadgets that used to be in my drawers for months. Whenever I travel somewhere. I don’t have to worry about things lying at my house anymore, because now I don’t have much more there! The things I really want are always with me, and the worry of carrying them is less!
This fact less worry = more happiness is a no-brainer. But we are happy even when we make someone else happy. Whenever we give something to someone-else who does not have it their happiness and enthusiasm is a precious gift for us.
If you think about it this is a great exchange: I am turning my concerns into someone else’s happiness. Everyone wins
I did not give everything to anyone. I converted some of my old things into extra cash by selling them. And this whole process affected my spending habits because now I am more conscious about-what I have to bring at home and in my life and in this way. I am more thoughtful in the slogan of how I should spend my money Have to spend
Realize everything that is of no use to you anymore.
Give your things to people who really need them and get their blessings, you may remember them always.
In truth, you will be a respected person because you will be happy when you have less, which will actually be more.
What do you think about “less is more”? Have you tried this concept in your life? If done, how has it affected your life?
