What pops into your mind when you hear the phrase: Simplifying Your Life? Do you think it means to live more frugally? Or, do you think it embraces the current trend of being a minimalist?
I’ve spent the majority of the last year and a half de-cluttering, deep-cleaning, organising and simplifying our life – this process has enabled me to think about what I actually need to be happy in life.
I discovered that having less stuff, fewer obligations, and more time made room for the most important things. I have more space in my life for people I love, things I appreciate, and opportunities I want to take. I realised that simplifying my life brought more abundance.
“Simplifying your life will give you more time, space, and energy. The more space you have, the freer you’ll be to truly enjoy everything.”
You see; everything you own, everything you do, and everyone you spend time with costs you something. And when you have an abundance of stuff, it costs you a lot.
Living an abundant life derives from traveling a journey of intentional self growth. It’s functioning through your true self to live a simple life. It’s getting good at being simple. Self simplicity becomes the clarity in which you find meaning. It’s the removal of the unnecessary. It’s the discovery of what you value most.
Here are five ways to simplify every area of your life.
- Declutter your house.
- Get rid of bad mental habits.
- Cut out toxic people.
- Take charge of your money.
- Gain control of your time.
