Here’s Why Doing Less Will Save The World

The Art of Doing Less

In the technology bubble of the 21st century, we have become hyper-stimulated.

We are constantly signaled to move faster, get quicker results, and think smarter.

And while it may seem like a good thing to get more accomplished, it may not be something that contributes to our happiness at all.

It does, however, contribute to our impulsivity, lack of monetary control, lack of emotional control, and overall sense of void.

I may sound passionate and overzealous about this, but I cannot overstate how important it is for your sanity and decision-making to seriously analyze your to-do list.

What are you doing because you feel obligated?

What really, really, truly, needs to be done? Why do you give yourself so much to do?

Embracing Minimalism

When someone asks you what you’re doing today, proudly say: “I’m doing less. I’m simplifying my thoughts, simplifying my life, so I can be there for you when you need to talk, so I can listen intently, so I can notice when I’m being mean.”

To be frank, it’s easy for anyone to be rude if they’re always busy. They never have to stop and face the person they are becoming and the actions and emotions they are spitting out by constantly being busy and not having time to be grateful, courteous, and intimate with friends and strangers.

By intimate, I mean able to connect, able to be present, be friendly, have a conversation, learn something, be vulnerable, offer something more than an attitude or an agenda.



The art of doing less is essential to the salvation of our race.

If we don’t slow down, we are doomed to consume every last resource on the planet and half of them through our digestive track.

Not only do we need less food and beverage, we need less tv, less work, less time talking, less money, less square footage, less clothing, less gossip, just less.

Minimalism is absolutely a trend but what it all comes down to is slowing down your thoughts so you can sleep, so you can take responsibility for your reactions, so you can start to have some control over your emotions and not be kicked around by them impulsively.

Less is More

Minimalism is absolutely a trend, but what it all comes down to is slowing down your thoughts so you can sleep, so you can take responsibility for your reactions, so you can start to have some control over your emotions and not be kicked around by them impulsively.

What do you think marketing plays on? People who do too much. The art of doing less is all about not being manipulated, it’s about taking control of your time, your thoughts, and your life.

The art of doing less is about fun, it’s about enjoying, soaking in the beauty around you, sitting with your emotions, thinking through your decisions, having an intention, and deciding what you want to do without being obligated to choose things from social conditioning.

What if the art of doing less was exactly what you needed to incorporate into your life?

What if relaxing, slowing down, and just being present to the moment brought you peace? What if art is more than a canvas and paintbrush, what if art became the way we live our life, mindfully, simply, with grace, intention and radical trust that we are interacting with a love that is greater than ourselves.

Do less and be more today, you may find connectedness, union, or…..yoga.
