Minimalism is all about living with less. This includes less financial burdens such as debt and unnecessary expenses. For many minimalists, the philosophy is about getting rid of excess stuff and living life based on experiences rather than worldly possessions. Honestly, I never been happier when I give away everything I had.

But anyone who likes things very simple could be called a minimalist. By having fewer things to distract or trigger you, your mental health will be positively impacted. Minimalism gives you the chance to tune out all the noise in your life, and change for the better. Here are five ways in which minimalism is good for your mental health.
