Minimalism is getting more and more popular. It's most likely the biggest trend right now in fashion and life style. There are so many different types of minimalists at the moment.
I read lot's of articles about minimalism these days as well. It seems like the new minimalist generation is becoming more materialistic. They are collecting lot's of stuff, live in bigger houses or more.
The online definition of the minimalism states the following
1-Living life simpler
2- Owning less stuff
3- Be less materialistic
I believe that there are so many different types of minimalist simply because everyone has a different idea of life style. Minimalism is not only aesthetic, but should be more defined as a life style. Guiding a way to live.
I am not the type of minimalist who lives out of a backpack. It's also not much of a trend to me but I more so got into minimalism because of the aesthetics. I decided to live my life as simple as I can be. After almost 2 years it truthfully became my life style. Minimalism definitely makes my life easier and less distractive from stuff around me. I like owning functional or multi purpose stuff, which I can use in various settings. It can be my daily inspiration and motivate me to become a better self. These are important steps for myself. Minimalism brings lot's of freedom with it into my life: it defines who I am, what I want and how I want to live. Don’t think about what everyone says. Live your life as your own minimalist. Be less distractived.
