10 life-changing minimalist quotes

Today I want to share with you 10 of my most loved minimalist lifestyle quotes. I genuinely love these because they’ve guided me through those confusing times of minimalism. I’m gonna keep this post short and minimal this time, let’s get into it!

“Your mind is all you truly have. So it makes sense to train it.”

“My goal is no longer to get more done, but rather to have less to do.”

Francine Jay, Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to Downsize, Declutter, and Simplify

“Answer me this, if your TV wasn’t broken in the first place then why do you need a new one? If your clothes still fit and aren’t rags falling off you, why do you need more clothes? If your phone still does what it does, why do you need the newest brand out there? I could go on with these examples, but you get the gist. If it isn’t broken then why fix it?”

Harken Headers, Health & Not Screwing It Up

“Now nearly everything I own is my favorite thing. All my clothes are my favorite clothes. All my furniture is my favorite furniture. All my possessions are my favorite possessions—all of which I enjoy every day of my life. How about you? What if you enjoyed everything you owned? How would it make you feel if you were surrounded by your favorite things every day?”

Joshua Fields Millburn, Minimalism: Essential Essays

“It’s 100% easier to increase your time and freedom by eliminating the dumb things you do every day than to try to be 100% more productive doing more dumb things.”

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

Coco Chanel

“For awhile, I was left with nothing on the physical plane. I had no relationships, no job, no home, no socially defined identity. I spent almost two years sitting on park benches in a state of the most intense joy.”

Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“If we were all minimalists instead of conspicuous consumers, there would be less demand on the world’s resources and we’d have a smaller, less berserk economy. We’d be less likely to harm the only planet we’ll ever have, and the super-rich would have fewer ways to exploit us.”

Robert Wringham, Escape Everything!: Escape from work. Escape from consumerism. Escape from despair.

“The point is that minimalism is a tool to help you achieve freedom. Freedom from fear, freedom from worry, freedom from overwhelm, freedom from guilt, freedom from depression, freedom from enslavement. Freedom. Real freedom.”

I truly belive that if you want to experience REAL FREEDOM, minimalism is the best way to achieve it.
