Are you feeling stressed, out of balance, or missing some of the joy in life you feel you deserve or want?
We are becoming a society of hoarders and collectors. We have storage facilities that are full to capacity, basements that are fire hazards due to the stuff piled in the corner or stored in boxes everywhere and our attics are overflowing with stuff we haven’t seen or touched since who knows when or our kids stuff who think we are free storage facilities.
Life can be a very complicated process. It is full of obligations, plans, goals, needs, expectations of others, self-expectations, adversity, problems, pressures, stressors, opportunities and a variety of projects, activities, and stuff in general. As I have traveled through life, I have discovered that most people add to the already complicated nature of life with a number of emotional and physical attachments that inhibit a sense of balance, harmony, inner peace, happiness and joy.
Simplifying your life can range from an arduous and painful task to a delightful and uplifting process that frees you from the mental attachments to things and people – it just depends a great deal on who you are, what you believe, what you think you want from life and to what or whom you may be attached to.
There are a number of books in print today on the merits and virtues of the simple life. Some would advocate moving to a small cabin in the woods without modern conveniences and away from the interactions of people, the media and technology, while others recommend spending the day cleaning out your closet. And, everything in between.
What are benefits of simplifying your life? This process can:
1. Reduce your stress.
2. Save you money.
3. Allow you to have more fun.
4. Give you more free time.
5. Increase your joy.
6. Permit you to enjoy the present moments of your life more.
7. Increase your harmony with others.
8. Save you time.
9. Lower your anxiety levels.
10. Reduce your frustration.
11. Improve your relationships.
12. Help you get and stay balanced.
13. Eliminating the clutter in your life.
14. Make it easier to find things.
15. Give you more time with what is really important in your life.
What can you do to simplify some areas of your life? These include, but are not limited to, your:
·home or living space.
·work area or business.
·others (now you add some items to the list).
In what areas do you feel you need to simplify your life? What is holding you back? Do you need to clean out some old emotional baggage or just clean out a few drawers and donate your unworn clothes to Goodwill?
Do something to day to begin to clean out the clutter in your life. You will be amazed at what it does for your attitudes.
