Insights: My Thoughts On Junk Values


Do you have a lot of things on your mind and get confused about what you need to keep and value? In this Insights episode, I’ll share my thoughts on how to give importance or when to value things in your life. These are based on what I’ve heard, read from books, and also based on my personal experience.

Topics Discussed in this episode:

  • The Idea or Concept of a Junk Value
  • What Are The Signs of a Junk Value
  • How To Get Rid of Junk Values

Key Takeaways:

  • According to Johann Hari, the idea of junk value is when we are valuing something that isn’t worthy of being valued. It isn’t deeply connected to anything that’s important.
  • One of the reasons why people are in chronic stress with their jobs is because they are getting very little reward from it, except financial. As a result, they don’t feel good about what they do.
  • Wellbeing is about connection to meaningful work, purpose, values, nature, and helping others.
  • We’ve always been in a storyline telling us that having stuff equates to feeling better about ourselves or to be clear about our status in the world. And this triggers us to work in jobs that we’re unhappy with.

Action Steps:

  • Always see the purpose over material possession
  • Get rid of the things that will take away your happiness
  • Invest on things that have real value in your life

Leanne said:

“The world is created, structured and set up entirely to reenforce for you that you need things to be happy”.

“Consume less to live more considerately, more mindfully and more sustainably”.
