True Change Today

Minimalism is A Clear Mind

Having a clear mind and a clear space allows you to think and act with purpose.

A Clear Mind

Today I noticed something amazing. As I walked to the store to get my groceries for a week, I noticed something unusual. My mind was exceptionally clear. Usually I think a lot, about important and mostly about nonimportant things. Consequently, I worry for no reason. 

I have been meditating for the last decade and know what benefits it brings me, but I think that one other thing helped me achieve this state of clarity today – minimalism. I would say that minimalism and meditation go hand in hand with forming a clear and healthy mind.

Just think about it: meditation is about taking your thoughts, sitting with them, and trying to understand them until they no longer trouble you. Until your mind is clear(er), and not constantly engaged in something. 

Minimalism is about removing physical possessions from your life so they don’t take space in your mind.

Most Buddhist monks renounce their possessions, so they can meditate without worrying whether they should dust off their TVs or organize their closets.

Meditation can take many different forms. If sitting cross-legged in silence isn’t your cup of tea, you can still reap the benefits. Try a yoga routine, walking around the park or local neighborhood, or simply experiment with a few minutes of silent reflection and breathing before you go to sleep.

When you begin living a simpler life, your mind automatically becomes calmer. With less worry, you’ll get more done. You’ll be able to focus more, accomplish more, and feel more fulfilled.

By minimizing our life, learning to detach ourselves from the material and see it for what truly is, we open a path for ourselves to achieve greatness and freedom.

The thing is, creating a clear, calm mind is a process. A tedious and long one. It’s a fundamental change from the mind you probably have now. It’s a change in the way you think, in your attitude, and your lifestyle habits.

Be patient with yourself.


Take your time.


Eventually, you’ll get there.

If you have a clear mind you won't have to search for direction. Direction will come to you.
