Cracking the Code – How To Maintain Rich And Modern Life With Less Stuff?

Maintain Rich and modern life with less stuff

I just naturally want to do things that make sense. In my personal life too, I don’t care what other rich people are doing. I don’t want a 405-foot boat just because someone else has a 400-foot boat.                                                                                                                          

— Warren Buffett

So you want to live a modern life with as less staff as possible?

It’s not mandatory that to live a simple life you have to become a monk or start living in a jungle or monastery detached from civilization.

If you want you can live with less along with leading a modern and rich life.

You don’t have to be Gautam Buddha or Gandhi to be simple.

You can be you, in fact, a richer you and simple.

Yes, it is true that rich people can lead a simple lifestyle

Because they can choose to live how they want, Mark Zuckerberg drives a Golf GTI but he could easily afford a Lamborghini, a Bugatti, etc. but he chose it because that was enough for him.

Warren Buffett has lived in the same house since he was 26, and his opinion about this is “why would I need a bigger house or more houses? So you can understand a mindset that leads you to the things you need, can make you able to love life with less staff despite being modern and rich.

The truth is you are not the Only Person Concerned About life with fewer things. Many are now concerned about this. So here are 14 ways to simplify your life but expand your experiences. To do less but be more.

Let It GO

You can’t live a simple life if you’re not willing to let go of what you don’t need or duplicate things. Like you have both Samsung galaxy j-5 and S-7. Let go of the duplicates.

It may seem to be difficult but is easier if you do a short time challenge. For example, let go of something for two weeks or a month and see what change it brings in your life.

Exercise Daily

Not only it can be beneficial to your health and mind but also you will be occupied and also after exercise you will be tired and need to rest instead of buying stuff or roaming around gadgets. Thus you can utilize time without stuff and simplify your life along with enriching it.


Purpose of meditation is to g experience our mindfulness to achieve serenity. It also helps us to embrace simplicity. It promotes us to live a simpler yet peaceful life.

Be A Clean Freak

Once you get habituate to clean your house and staffs you learn that the more stuff you own, the more time it takes to clean them. So for your own time’s sake, you will want to get rid of unnecessary staffs. So cleaning will make you want a simple life with less staff.


I lead a simple life. I get residuals. I have a family; we’re doing alright.

                                                            -Robert Morse

Instead of answering the comment on your Facebook status or scrolling the newsfeed of your social media, spend some time with your real friends and family members. Go for a walk with them or have dinner with your family member. Or cook the favorite dish for your mother and surprise her. Eventually, you will feel the need for a smartphone or social media less and lose interest in stuff rather than real worlds which needs less stuff. Create a bond with your family. Let go of screen time free up some time for togetherness. You can just share a conversation together.

Desktop instead of the laptop

It’s true you can’t avoid the needs of technology for your work or daily life. We can’t use a typewriter or fax machine instead of a computer. But try to use a desktop because it’s not portable and takes more time to operate than a laptop. You won’t carry it everywhere and be occupied with the computer. Thus you will use it only when you need.


For example, when I look into my closet and see a cloth that is lying there  for a long time without wearing I ask myself three questions and those are,

  1. Is it possible to make some money by selling this?
  2. Can I remember the last time I wore this cloth?
  3. What is the valid reason to keep this item still?

If I am not able to find perfectly valid answers then I have no reason to waste space for that. This is also useful while buying things. Often ask yourself “Do I really need this? Or what for? Then it will reduce your habit of increasing unnecessary stuff in your house.

Practice your hobbies

I was probably singing before I could talk. Musical theater is my passion. If I could afford it, I would just do dinner theater and live a simple life.

If you practice your hobbies or passion in your leisure time then you can be more perfect in that and also feel less need for stuff.

Write, paint, cook or take a photo. Find your passion what helps you to relax and be better and spend your time after that than wasting time after stuffs.

Disconnect The Phone From Wi-Fi

It’s   It is a facility of Wi-fi that it takes less money to use the internet but there’s always two sides of the coin. By this facility, we keep our phones connected with the internet most of the time and check it every now and then If you keep your phone disconnected for some fixed time with the internet you can break the chain with your mind and tendency to check the notifications frequently. Also, it helps you to learn to enjoy the moment and life with less virtual world and stuffs.

Relax and do nothing

Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.-

                                                           Winnie the Pooh

Take some time in the morning or evening to just relax and do nothing intensionally.l. Spend some minutes with a cup of hot coffee or tea or take a nap.

Go For A Walk

It’s quite simple and easy. Grab your snickers and go for a walk. Not for exercise just to observe your surroundings, for fresh air. It needs no equipment and thus you learn to enjoy life without staff. I often go to work on my bicycle. You can try it too.

Turn Off The Screens

It can be televisions, smartphones, tablets or computers. This is really harmful to sit in front of screens for our bodies and minds. Limit the time spend in front of screens. Set a goal to turn off the gadgets for one or two hours a day.

Be A Reader

You may or may not be a regular book worm but grow a habit of reading every day even if it’ one page for at least thirty minutes each day. It will stimulate your mind and once you get habituate to pages you’ll feel uncomfortable with gadgets and stuff automatically.

Be Grateful

The fact is not that happy people are grateful but it’s the other way around–grateful and people are mostly happy. Have gratitude and gratefulness in your mind with what you have. Don’t compare yourself with others, there’s no end of needs but just think many people don’t have as much as you. So you need to be happy with what you’ve got. Then you will realize you don’t need any more stuff more than you need to be enriched and happy.

So, what are you waiting for? Simplify. Let go and reduce your stress in your everyday life. Free spaces, increase contentment and be enriched with less. And most importantly enjoy life to its fullest. Be rich with less.

Rapunzel’s Secret: Tips for your hair

Rapunzel’s Secret Tips for your hair

I always had a question in my mind about Rapunzel’s hair. How did she have such strong and beautiful hair being captivated for years? Is there any home-delivery service at that era who provided her with hair care products? I know it’s a silly question but there must be some answers. And this dilemma led me to the stories of our hair. The secrets, the products, and the expert’s opinions. Today I will try to write down the summary of my week-long research on “Rapunzel’s Secret” – the story of our health.

Via – Pixabay/AdinaVoicu-485024Just like our skin and body, the health of our hair is a direct sign of the inside health. It works just like our cars. You use good fuel, quality product, regular servicing – you get a problem-free car. You take good food, use a quality product and routine life – you get flawless and strong hair.

The secret lies inside the root – the roots of our hair and the nourishment’s they get. The cells that help to grow healthy hair require a regular supply of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals along with a healthy lifestyle. So, there are separate segments for having a unique result.

Let’s jump inside the pool of tips of hair which I named as Rapunzel’s Secret.

Birth and Death: HOW HAIRS GROW & DIE

This part consists of the stories of the beginning – how the hairs actually grow? You may find this part a little dull. But I’ll suggest reading this as well. It will help you to know about the untold stories of hair-birth. And we’ll get an idea about the nutrition which the hair wants.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, our hair grows out of little pockets in head skin, called follicles. The process is as follows:

  1. Hair begins growing from a root in the bottom of the follicle.
    • The root is made up of cells of protein.
  2. Blood from the blood vessels in our scalp feeds the root, which creates more cells and makes the hair grow.
  3. The hair gets pushed up through the skin as it grows, passing an oil gland along the way. The oil gland adds oil to the hair and keeps it shiny and soft.
    • The oil can make it greasy, too. That’s why we need to wash our hair regularly.
  4. The hairs die by the time it is long enough to poke out through the skin.
    • Yes, hair is dead. That’s why it doesn’t hurt to get a haircut.

Simple But How-Board



It is really unfortunate that there are lots of things around us which can damage the hair and its quality. So, we have to set a routine that will protect our hair like an umbrella. Following are the common things which work as devils for our hair according to the Canadian Dermatology Association:

  • The sun – yes, sun exposure can cause enormous heat damage. And this is one of the reasons why we should wear a hat when going outside.
  • Styling Products and Chemicals (such as chlorine) in pools.

Hair gel, spray, chlorine, and styling products that promise long holding times are especially damaging. Coloring, perming and relaxing products also have harsh chemicals that weaken hair.

  • Things we use to style our hair, such as blow-drying, hot curlers, and using a curling or straightening iron will literally cook the hair. It can also damage the follicle. Don’t use them too much, especially if the hair seems to be getting drier or breaks easily.
  • Handling wet hair is also a path that leads to hair damage. Towel drying, combing and brushing our wet hair can damage it since wet hair is more elastic and can break more easily than dry hair.
  • Too much brushing can cause split ends.
  • Tying hair up in braids, ponytails or any styling that causes pulling on hair can stretch it and cause breakage. In fact, wearing hair in a tight style regularly can lead to traction alopecia, hair loss caused by pulling on the scalp.

As the oil gland of our head adds oil to the hair, we need to wash our scalp regularly. Extra oil can make our hair dirtier. We have to be sure that we maintain a regular routine of washing the scalp. How often we wash our hair depends on its type and what we do during the day/night. If you go or work outside or visit dusty and hot places frequently, then it will be wise to wash the hair more often than the people who remain inside.

A small amount of shampoo added with water can be used. Using a conditioner after the wash may make it look better, but that doesn’t make the hair healthier. Remember, hair is already dead. After rinsing off thoroughly, it is important to soak the extra water from the hair with a soft towel. A wide-tooth comb or hair-brush can be used later. But be polite and gentle, otherwise wet hair can be broken our pulled out.

I think you’ll admit that Rapunzel must not have any styling instrument with her. So, just like her we can avoid hair dryers as much as possible and let our hair air-dry recurrently. The same rule goes for hair-straightener, too. And don’t forget that split end is a type of hair damage. As our hair is already dead, we can’t repair the split ends (fraudulently claimed by many beauty products). All we can do is trim them off and move on.


The first and last rule of having a healthy hair is: fill your stomach with proper food and you will get the shiny and lustrous hair you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Roopal V. Kundu (MD, Associate Professor of Dermatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine) says,

“The basic early advice is to make sure you’re looking at your diet, make sure you’re getting enough iron, make sure you’re not anemic, make sure you have enough protein in your diet. Iron and protein are really important for hair health. There are some generic vitamins that we recommend: Vitamin D, omega, fish oils, a generic multivitamin with iron. Biotin is great in terms of hair strength and preventing breakage.”.


Eggs are rich in this B vitamin which is essential for hair growth.  Eggs are also a rich source of protein, choline, and vitamin D. So, starting the morning with a toast, egg, and cup of vegetable is the wisest idea. Iron and zinc help hair follicles to grow, says Wilma Bergfeld, MD, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. She suggests eating lean red meat, which is rich in both nutrients, twice a week. Pair nonmeat sources, such as soybeans or lentils, with a vitamin C-rich food like an orange to boost iron absorption. [Source]

So, fill up on these nutrients to have the healthiest hair ever.
