Living a life of simplicity can be a beautiful thing. But simplifying itself can seem like an overwhelming process.
So I recommend simplicity in your simplifying.
Instead of trying to simplify your whole life, tossing out all your clutter and paring your schedule to just meditation and writing your novel, how about just simplifying one thing?
Simplifying one thing is doable. You don’t have to simplify everything today — you’ve got ages to do all of that.
Simplicity is the path.
You can pick one of the ideas below and implement it today. If it works well, continue it tomorrow. Or try one of the other ideas. And do it with a smile!
Ideas to simplify life
The next thing you choose to do, do only that. Close everything else, put your phone away, and just focus on that one task. If you’re reading this article, stay with it and do nothing else until you’re done reading. When you decide to check social media, check one at a time and do it fully and with mindfulness. When you go for a walk, have nothing to listen to or look at, other than the nature all around you. One thing at a time: wash one dish, just write, just eat. This is such a simple idea, and it’s doable right now.
