Minimalism is in the trend, irrespective of the scenario of being a freelancer or a 9-5 employee biking on a bumpy road to work while not taking into account the consumerist mindset of the 21st century.
Minimalism is a descendant of stoicism and being that is getting all the attention that it deserves. In the modern digital world where there are distractions around all corners, with cell phones continuously beeping, one can easily lose his train of creative thoughts. Silence is a commodity that is now being sold on Playstore and AppStore in the form of meditation and calming apps.
Minimalism subjects these distractions as more and more professionals are de-cluttering their workplaces to get a grasp on their focus. Minimalism is a real lifesaver for entrepreneurs who are often following their hectic lifestyle.

Distractions happen due to our constant hunger for information. The constant distraction leads a person to do multitasking which comes with its own risks in the form of stress, disorganized behavior and decreased productivity.
