3. PUT THE PHONE AWAY WHEN SOMEONE’S TALKING

We understand that people use their phones for just about everything nowadays, business purposes included. But did you know that accumulating research shows an overdependence on technology can change your behavior? There are technology addiction therapists, for crying out loud!

Anyways, be courteous and stash the phone occasionally.

4. ADOPT A SIMPLICITY MINDSET

 

Practicing simplicity is much more than just consuming less – it is a state of mind. We, as Madonna famously sang, “live in a material world.” Consumerism is at the heart of most economies, but we needn’t participate in it.

To be “financially minimalistic” is to keep your values in mind (e.g. social welfare, ethics, spiritual); to spend your money with intent, and to not be guided by impulse.
