Digital minimalism is the newest branch of the minimalism trend. It revolves around the purposeful use of technology, rather than using it mindlessly to fill time. There are a range of benefits associated with minimalism, with the following 5 benefits resulting from digital minimalism in particular.
1. It frees up time
Digital minimalism helps to control our mindless use of technology, freeing up time to be spent on the things that we enjoy.
Rather than simply using technology for the sake of it, this approach helps us to only use it for a particular task or purpose. That way, we are more likely to stay focused, get the job done and be ready to move onto something else.
2. It helps you to be more productive
Given that digital minimalism promotes targeted use of technology, it helps us to be more productive.
We will open our phone or log onto our computer with the sole purpose of completing a specific task. During this time, we only use the program required and work through until the completion of the task. Our focus is not divided, helping us to be more productive.
3. It gives us freedom
If we learn to be a digital minimalist, we are no longer slaves to technology. Instead of relying upon it for every little action, we use it for what we need to.
Technology now serves us, rather than us succumbing to it.
4. It helps us to be mindful
We learn to be more present in the moment, rather than letting time pass us by.
Digital minimalism requires our focus to be on one task at a time. Our concentration is only on this, so we have to be living in the present moment.
5. It improves our mental health
Becoming more mindful is good for our mental health. We learn to appreciate a moment for what it is, rather than wishing our time away.
Digital minimalism also helps us to become less overwhelmed by technology and more in control. We free up time for the things we enjoy, which helps us to feel happier and more content.
All of these things contribute to improving and maintaining mental wellbeing. We cannot avoid technology, but there are real benefits associated with learning how to control and manage our usage.
In conclusion, use these techniques if you are struggling with your consumption of technology, try to engage in digital minimalism to reap these 5 benefits.
