俗话说“多多益善”。受其影响,我们想要的总是很多很多,就像金钱或荣誉。 生活中,我们并未发觉“多多”带来了更多或更大的益处;反之,我们受缚于“多多”。“多多”不仅压沉了我们的肩膀,也带来了无尽的烦恼。 与其这样受缚,不如试着作个极简主义者,享受简单的生活。

Everyone wants to know all the benefits of being a minimalist.

人人都想知道极简主义的好处。

So I came up with my top 5 reasons.

所以,我提出我的五点理由。

There are plenty more reasons as a result of these major ones, but they all come in time, as minimalism slowly creeps into your system.

这些理由衍生出很多理由,但是,随着极简主义逐渐融入生活,他们终将一一显现。

1. Less stress gets you what you want

1.更少的压力使你得到心中所想

You have less to deal with when you start applying minimalism to all aspects of your life.

当极简主义存在于生活各个方面时,你要应对的东西会更少。

Living a simpler, less complicated life takes some work in the beginning, but the rewards are great.

过简单、 不复杂的生活,一开始需要做出努力一些努力,但回报很多。

If you keep saying yes to everything, you will never enjoy or get anything finished.

如果一直对任何事说好,你要做的事情将无穷无尽或者得不到做完事情后的那份享受。

Once you start cutting back on your commitments and your stuff, there is less to do, less to buy, less to take care of and what you do end up with, is exactly what you want.

一旦开始减少承诺、削减所有物,你会做得更少,买得更少,承担得更少。最后,你做的就是你心中所想的。

2. Less of an impact on the environment

2.对环境的影响更少

Buying less helps reduce the amount of items that are being overproduced for the environment. If we stopped purchasing new items every year that we don’t really want or need, the demand is less, and factories will produce less. In fact, they may produce just what we need, no more and no less.

就环境而言,少买有助于削减过度生产品的总数。如果我们每年停止购买新出的、非想要或非必需的物品,需求会变小,工厂生产量也将缩减。事实上,他们能生产出我们恰好需要的物品,不多也不少。

Before you purchase new items, minimalism encourages you to re-purpose and re-use what you already own.

购买新物品前,极简主义鼓励人们重用已有的物品。

Cutting down on new purchases by learning how to cross-examine yourself for whether or not you need the items is a useful skill to have.

学习如何反复询问自己“是否需要这东西”,是削减购买物品的有效技巧。

3. Less money is spent so you can save

3.少花钱多储蓄

Buying less, means spending less.

买得少了,即花的少了。

And if you spend less, you can save more for your future and financial well-being.

如果花销少了,你能有更多的钱留供以后用且积攒为财力。

If you also purchase quality items, you will cherish and enjoy them longer, plus you won’t have to buy as many replacements in the future.

如果你也购买优质物品,你将有更长的时间来珍惜和享受他们。另外,你以后也无需购买
同等数量的替代品。

And don’t we love that?!

难道有谁会不喜欢吗?!

4. Less cleaning to do

4.少做清理

The more you own, the more it owns you.

拥有的越多,受限也越多。

You have to take care of the things. Maintain them. Polish them. Upgrade them. Add more to the collection. Yell at people who go near your figurines.

你不得不对他们进行看管、维护、抛光和升级,添加新藏品,并对靠近雕像的人大声吼叫。

It gets exhausting, devoting so much time to loving things.

爱护他们是件相当耗时费力的事情。

The less stuff you have, the less you have to clean and the less you have to maintain.

你的东西越少,清理和维护工作就越少。

And you can devote your appreciation and love to the few things you own, that you truly cherish and value.

而你能更多地欣赏和喜爱那些你拥有且真正珍惜的东西。

5. Less time wasted

5.浪费的时间更少

You will be picking, choosing and prioritizing what is really important to you to get done, rather than trying to do everything all at once, and feeling unfulfilled.

你将挑拣对你很重要的事情去做,而不是试着同时做很多事且没成就感。

Everyone needs a little down time, sometimes. And if you’re constantly putting your resources towards things that don’t hold any meaning for you, you will be stuck dealing with time wasters that don’t benefit you whatsoever.

人们不时需要休息一下。如果你不断将精力投于对你毫无意义的事情,你将陷于困境,去处理那些对你无益且浪费时间的事情。

Clutter for example, is just a form of visual distraction and the more we have in a home, the more our brain has to process.

以杂乱为例,这仅是视觉混乱的一种。家里的东西越多,大脑需要进行的处理也越多。

Having a minimalist life and home also lets you find your things quicker.

简单的生活和家庭也让你找东西更迅捷。

Instead of hunting for that rogue working blue pen, you have them all in one area, ready to be used.

你要用的笔都在一起,而不用去找那不知在哪儿的蓝色钢笔。

Or how about having all your keys and items ready at the door before you leave in the morning?

或者早上出门前,你的钥匙和其它东西都已在门边?

That also cuts down on having to scream in frustration at 7.59 a.m., while frantically searching through your pockets, cursing the amount of stuff you own and have to check before you find your keys.

那将减少你在7点59分沮丧地尖叫,疯搜口袋,咒骂东西太多,并在找到钥匙前进行清点的次数。
