Life is complicated at the best of times. We live in a noisy world full of irritations and distractions. I'm sure we can all agree that life is hard. It should be our aim to make life as simple as possible; reduce the noise.
Simplifying your life will bring balance, freedom, joy, and clarity. It also doesn't need to be stressful and complicated. You don't need to become a minimalist. It's also a process that won't happen overnight.
Reduce the clutter
The first and most important step to simplifying your life is reducing the clutter that surrounds you. Learning to create a quieter, much more balanced space in your life can help immensely. When you have fewer items to worry about, you'll feel lighter.
Eliminate bad mental habits
The second and still very important step to simplify your life is to eliminate bad mental habits. Bad mental habits carry a tremendous amount of psychological weight. It's a daily burden that you could defiantly do without. Feeling sorry for yourself, dwelling on the past and giving away your power are just a few you should work to eliminate from your daily life.
Remove toxic people
The third, and again, still very important step is removing toxic people from your life. Whether you have a friend who finds a problem for every solution or a cousin who calls every day to complain about how unfair the world is, negative people can take up a lot of space in your life.
Here's some other tips for simplifying your life:
- Set monthly goals that are achievable but not easy
- Follow a healthy morning routine that works for you
- Pack an on-the-go kit to help you through your day
- Invest in an energy efficiency slow cooker
- Unsubscribe from all unnecessary emails
- Switch to the cloud for everything digital
- Plan a solid workout routine
- Slow down
Remember that everything you own, everything you do and everyone you spend time with costs you something. If you have an abundance of stuff, it'll be costing you a lot. Simplifying your life will give you more time, space and energy to focus on what's important.
