I will admit it - I have a tendency to make things too complicated. Because life is complicated...and well, sometimes it gets overwhelming. I have a picture that hangs in my bedroom that says "Simplify" to serve as a reminder to keep things simple.
In the age we are living in, there is so much at our disposal. So much information, so many choices. We're running here and there, involved in more things than ever before. We have cell phones, home phones and access to email on the go. We are working longer hours than ever before. Our closets are fuller than ever. We have more possessions than ever. Our schedules are overflowing. Multitasking is encouraged, almost required. Whew! No wonder we are stressed!
All of that "stuff" comes at a price. I truly believe that a lot of the time we create our own stress. It's not good to have our calendars so booked up - we need our downtime. Too many choices can make us feel overwhelmed. We're too plugged in and on the go. Sometimes less is actually more. We need to SIMPLIFY.
Simplifying is not a one-day event, it's an ongoing process. Simplifying can enhance your life in more ways imaginable. It can be the catalyst for cleaner closets with less clothes to go through each day, or for keeping less paperwork in your house. Getting rid of excess can be your friend, not your enemy. Multitasking should be examined. It does have its place, but sometimes it actually increases the stress in our lives instead of helping us. We need to do it at the right times.
Thought of the Day: Is it time to Simplify? Warning: You may find it addictive...
Have a wonderful day!
