How do you know when you have “enough”?

A question we asked the community and the answers we received

Words by Minimalism Life

Periodically, we ask a single question where we invite answers from the Minimalism Life community. And then we share some of our favourite responses. All responses remain anonymous, but it’s an interesting insight into how this nuanced tool, minimalism, can be life-changing for many people.

Recently, we asked, “How do you know when you have enough?”


“If too much is too much, then enough is enough.”


“There is no enough.”


“When you can ask that question.”


“When you even think to ask that question.”


“When you realise that you’ve had three satisfying meals.”


Want to share your own answer? Our current question is: “What does your minimal morning look like?”

Our Book, Inside Minimalism Vol.1

A collection of 50 short and relatable essays on simple living by a small team of writers from different backgrounds, but who all share a deep appreciation for minimalism as a way of life. This book covers many topics such as slow and quiet living, curation, consumerism, and family. It is not a strict guide book or a rule book. Rather, it is a book we hope will inspire, motivate, and encourage you to take a slow and simplified approach to life.
