From the hottest Hollywood celebrities to iconic athletes like LeBron James, everyone's talking about raising awareness for calm, peace, and true happiness. It's not just the 'in thing'. Some say it is The Thing. So how does it reflect in men's fashion? We're about to find out.
Mindfulness In Day-To-day Fashion, Clothes & AccessoriesOnce upon a time mindfulness and fashion simply did not co-exist. A little clan of practitioners dressed in simple clothes wore beads and walked around in slippers. Life was simple, life was good. Now, mindfulness has entered the masses. The modern-day yogis have taken the same philosophy of 'simple' but given it a modern twist. It's attractive in minimalist form. It appeals to the masses.
Mindful Money. Slim Metal Wallets.Slim metal wallets like these spearheaded the minimalist movement in the world of men's wallets. The designers decided to take on the full scope of mindfulness and threw out all distractions from the design. No separate slots for cards, cash, or coins. No complexity in design. No bulk. Just a metal encasing securely holding cards and cash (with an attached money clip). These metal wallets were unlike anything anyone could dare to conceive of. It was a paradigm shift.
'Back to basics' was the mindfulness mantra behind this ultra-simple design. After the initial shock, the response was phenomenal. Slim metal wallets created a shift in perception. Young people started to let go of complexity and embrace rock-solid simplicity.

Happiness In Simplicity
Whether it's fashion or fun, simplicity is science-backed to boost happiness. Cutting the clutter and junk from everyday living can greatly enhance the quality of life. GenX and Boomers who used chunky leather wallets all their lives reported a 'sense of relief' after they 'let go' of the familiar bifold and moved to simplicity. Some said the change to a simple metal wallet was 'uncomfortable' in the beginning ... but soon they felt a sense of empowerment.
This is the magic of mindfulness. When we let go and trust in the simple, magic seems to happen.
