What does it really mean to SIMPLIFY? Do you have to give up all of your worldly possessions and move to a bark hut in the woods? Not hardly! Simplifying is all about having enough without having too much -- cutting back on unnecessary spending, slowing down, and FOCUSING on your true priorities. For one person, this means working fewer hours, a cut in pay, and more time with the kids. Another may choose to move closer to work, buy a smaller home, and clean out some unused junk. And a third person might just start saying NO to the daily barrage of requests from other people. What will you do to simplify your life this month?
Take a look at your life -- where do you see EXCESS around you? Is your life cluttered with things you don't need or use? Is your schedule so full that you have no free time for yourself? These are a few good places to begin purging and simplifying.
Try to simplify ONE area of your life -- your job, your home, your spending -- at a time. If you do too much at once, you will just get overwhelmed. And tackle the biggest thorn in your side first. Then you can move on to the next biggest pain in the neck.
Make a list of small CHANGES that you can immediately put into place. If you want less stuff, clean a few things out of your junk closet. Then, you can consider bigger changes, like getting trimming down to one car or moving to a smaller house.
