If you love Apple’s clean-looking aesthetic, there’s a good chance you’ll like minimalism. The stripped-down look and lifestyle is about simplicity, not restriction.
Who should consider minimalism
(even a modified version of it)
- People who are always running late or misplacing things.
- People who overspend or need to be more disciplined with money.
- People who want to change hoarding habits in incremental ways (I share some tips below).
- People juggling a lot — consider being a minimalist only in your work day wardrobe.
- People who suffer from anxiety, have sleep problems or any type of mental health concern.
Famous minimalists include, Steve Jobs, Angelina Jolie and Robert Pattinson.

How to gradually transition to minimalism
Start with one category of stuff then move to other categories in a systematic way. For example:
- Start in your office. Devise strategies to have less books such as cloud storage and other digital solutions.
- In a few months when you’re successfully maintaining your bookshelves and leaner office, move to the kitchen.
- In yet a few more weeks or months, work on your bathroom to pare down your makeup and skin care products.
- Continue working your way to other areas as you move through the change process.
