I think we can all agree that life can get a little complicated and chaotic even at the best of times! This modern age that we live in has the potential to load a lot of undue stress and anxiety on us, and we can often put ourselves under more strain than we need to because we don’t know how to eliminate unnecessary complications from our lives. If you want to have an easier time of things, then you need to learn how to make things simpler. Here are five easy ways to simplify your life!
1. Be Yourself
It takes so much energy to keep up the pretense of being somebody else, so completely eliminate that energy drain by committing to being yourself in all situations! If you don’t have to remember what your fake opinions and fake thoughts are on things, then you never have to be worried about putting your foot in it and getting caught out!
2. Tech Detox
Life can be so unnecessarily complicated by addiction to social media, it can give you FOMO, it can make you negatively compare yourself to others, and it can steal time that you could otherwise be spending with real-life friends and family. Put yourself through a digital detox and you might find that you have less on your mind.
3. Be Positive
It takes a lot more energy to search for negatives in situations rather than trying to focus on the positive. Be a positive person as a default and that doesn’t mean that you still can’t voice distress when it is present, it just means not being a defeatist and literally searching for things to moan about.
4. No Flippant Shopping
Don’t get into (or stop if you already do it) the habit of buying stuff you don't need. All these physical possessions are going to do is take up room in your home environment, and every time you look at them you will feel guilty about having spent money unnecessarily. Be more strict with yourself and feel less guilty!
You might have gotten used to navigating around a mess in your home, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a mess! Take a day or an afternoon to spring clean and declutter your living space. You will be amazed by how much lighter and freer it makes you feel.
