How I Started Being A Minimalist


Once, I thought that all that mattered in life were the things that you possessed. Things like your car, house, watch, clothes. I chased all of that for many years, until I woke up one day, and realised: “What’s the point?“ That was the first step of me becoming a minimalist, and real joy. What is Minimalism?

12 Things To Do To Get More Time Back


It’s 2019 and I’m turning 35 years old this year. When I was a young 8-year-old kid in primary school, I had teachers who were 20-30 years old.

6 Things You Can Do While Waiting to Be Happier


We spend a lot of time waiting. For most of us, a large part of our time is taken by commuting and traveling. Or just lining up for things.
