How I Don’t Get Caught Up In The Rat Race


I’ve been pretty minimalist my whole life. I don’t feel like it’s a sacrifice, though—I actually enjoy living with less stuff and having to work less in order to afford everything I do have. I think that if you can get into this mindset too, you’ll be happier with your life and your wallet. Let me explain how!

Minimalism is a great way to find a lot of wealth and joy in your life.

Minimalism is a great way to find a lot of wealth and joy in your life.

There are many reasons for this, but here are just a few:

  • Minimalism gives you more freedom than you’ve ever had before.
  • Minimalism gives you more happiness than you’ve ever had before.
  • Minimalism gives you more peace than you’ve ever had before.

If that sounds good to you, then there’s no reason not to give it a try!

Doing things yourself is rewarding, even if it takes more time.

When you do the work yourself, you get to see the results right away. You also learn a lot about how things work and can be more efficient with your time. It’s rewarding to see something through from start to finish.

If you don’t have the time or inclination to do it yourself, maybe there’s a reason. Sometimes it’s better not to rush through something just because everyone else is doing it fast—you might miss out on important details or make mistakes that take even more time in the long run.

Don’t spend money on things you don’t need!

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to not buy things you don’t need. That’s it—it’s that simple! I don’t mean to sound like your mom or dad, but trust me when I say this: If you’re going to spend money on something, make sure that it’s a worthy investment. If you have the means to buy yourself a brand new car, then by all means do so—if not, save up for one and put the money toward your dream car instead of buying an expensive pair of shoes or boots that will never see the light of day outside of an Instagram photo shoot.

When you’re looking for opportunities for happiness outside yourself (which is what we all do at some point), recognize that they’re only worth pursuing if they add something valuable into your life. This doesn’t mean every purchase should be full price with no discounts; there are lots of ways to save money while still getting quality products. But at the end of the day, remember: If it isn’t worth buying without any discounts whatsoever (like many expensive watches), then perhaps it isn’t worth purchasing at all!

Go without anything that’s not important.

The less you have, the more you can focus on the important things. The less you have, the less time you spend cleaning and maintaining it all. The less you have, the more money for traveling or to spend with family and friends.

Don’t give into the temptation of constant consumption!

There are many people who work themselves to the bone only to find that they don’t have enough money to pay their bills. They’re constantly stressed out and worried about how they’re going to be able to afford everything they need. This is what happens when you give in to the temptation of constant consumption! You can’t afford anything because all your money goes towards buying things that aren’t necessary for life itself.

Try not buying anything unless it’s something you really need—not just something nice or fun, but something essential for survival (like food). It may seem like a hassle at first, but once you get used to it, it’ll become second nature and save tons of money over time!

Don’t just be a person who consumes. Create something too!

You don’t have to be an entrepreneur or an artist to engage in creative pursuits. If you’re not a big reader, write a book review blog. If you’ve never played an instrument before, learn how to play one. Make art out of whatever inspires you: paint with watercolors or build sculptures out of scrap metal and old electronics. Do something that is completely yours and that only reflects your unique perspective on life!

The point here isn’t just being self-sufficient (though that’s great), but also that there are so many ways we can create things that reflect our passions and interests—so many ways we can express ourselves and share our creativity with the world around us!

You can be happy with less stuff by following these tips

One of the biggest benefits of minimalism is that it’s a great way to avoid getting caught up in the rat race. The rat race is what happens when you spend your life trying to accumulate more and more stuff, but never quite feeling like you have enough. If you can learn how not to get caught up in this cycle, then you’ll be able to live a much happier life.

Here are some ways that I don’t get caught up in the rat race:

  • Minimalism helps me stay frugal with my money and time. Frugality means being careful with both your money and time so that they last longer and allow you to do more things with them later on down the road! This means buying less stuff; spending less time cleaning up after yourself; doing things yourself instead of paying someone else (like mowing your own lawn); etc…
  • Minimalism allows me more flexibility because I don’t have too many commitments weighing down my schedule all at once (no one likes being overcommitted!).


The next time you feel like your life is too busy and all you can think about is how much stuff you’re supposed to have, just remember: simplicity is the key. You don’t need all that stuff if it’s not making you happy, and there are plenty of ways to find happiness with less. If we all follow these tips, maybe one day we’ll live in a world where people are happier because they’re able to minimize their material goods!
