5 Ways to Make Life Simple Again


Live below your means

When you live before your means, you start to lose a bit of the materialistic nature that tends to come with spending more. By reducing your spending, you are not only removing the clutter from your budget but giving your wallet a little room to breathe. This effort can mean that you might not have to work as hard, or save more and still make ends meet.

Get up 30 minutes earlier

You will be shocked how much time you can have for yourself when you take just thirty minutes to wake up earlier. Take your day a little slower and start your mornings off at a slower pace. This can be by just doing things slower instead of rushing to get everything ready for the day, or giving yourself some peace before the chaos sets in.

Declutter things you haven’t used in a year

Simplify your life and make things simple by getting rid of things you don’t use. If you have items in your home that you haven’t used in the last year, it’s safe to let them go. Give yourself permission to rid yourself of the things that no longer serve you or your family anymore. Set up a box to put items you declutter in, and when it is full, donate it!

Check everything just once a day

This goes for email, social media, and anything else that eats up your time. Make a set time each day when you will check in to each of these areas. This not only gives you more peace of mind, but keeps you from wasting a ton of time on your phone scrolling or always staying plugged in. Unplugging can be a nice thing. This goes for other apps as well. Whatever you find yourself spending too much time on, set a limit to check or use it once per day.

Limit daily tasks

Don’t overload your to-do list every single day. Set 1-3 of your top things to get done each day. Make these the things that are most important to you, and then use the rest of your day to do the things that are important to you. Make time for yourself even if that time is spent doing absolutely nothing. Doing this not only frees you time on your calendar but makes your days less crammed and overwhelming as well.
