5 Ways to Simplify Your Life

“Simplicity is the essence of happiness.” – Cedric Bledsoe

Ever think there's not enough time in the day? Do you have too many things to do? Can't get everything done? Wake up tired? Sound familiar? You're not alone. You need to simplify your life.

Here are 5 ways to make it happen. (We'll keep this blog simple too)

 1. GET CONTROL OF YOUR TIME

What's your most valuable resource? Time. You can never get it back, so why waste it scrolling through social media or worrying about what may happen next?  Set aside time to do things that matter to you most. Go for a hike, play with the kids, watch a sunset. Live in the present, and you decide as much as possible what to do with your time.

2. CREATE DAILY ROUTINES

Daily routines work to help you get control of your time. Routines put your mind and body on "autopilot," which helps takes the stress out of figuring out what to do each day. High achievers tend to find routines that work for them, then they put those routines into action.

3. GET RID OF BAD MENTAL HABITS

Bad mental habits like negative thinking and feeling sorry for yourself can zap a lot of your energy. When you drift into negative thinking, remind yourself it's not at all helpful and make space for gratitude, self-compassion, and realistic optimism.

4. IDENTIFY YOUR PRIORITIES

Choose what's important to you. Juggling the demands of everyday life often gives us limited options for anything else. Identifying and simplifying your priorities helps you let go of what is not a priority now.

5. DECLUTTER YOUR HOUSE

Your environment does have an impact on how you feel both physically and psychologically. Some of us get overwhelmed every time we open a closet or stare at dirty dishes, while others waste time looking for misplaced items. When you have fewer items to worry about, you'll have more energy to focus on the items that you keep.
