HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE – 12 EASY WAYS

I wanted to share a fantastic infographic that I was sent the other day, and it’s all about how to simplify your life – the perfect theme for this blog!

12 easy ways to simplify your life

I talk a lot on this site about making life easier and how many benefits it has when you do. You are less stressed, more productive, happier and a whole variety of other great things.

Who wouldn’t want a simpler life?

I like this infographic for the fact that it focuses on 4 different aspects of life – Mind, Work life, Home and Relationships.

All are important parts of life, and there are some great tips for each area.

Take a look and see what you think…

I’m fascinated – what area of your life did the infographic say you needed to simplify most?

For me, it was my mind.

No real surprise here – my husband has even bought me a book called “Women who think too much**”.

It was bought with his tongue firmly in cheek, but says it all really!

So – for the next few weeks that’s what I’m going to focus on. Making my mind less cluttered and feeling less overwhelmed by everything going on in my head.

Sounds lovely, actually!

 

WANT MORE HELP TO SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE?

What I’d like to do as an extra bit of inspiration for you, is to go through each area from the infographic, and go through the tips given.

There are lots of articles I’ve written on Organise My House that go into these tips in more depth, so I’ll link to those wherever possible.

This will hopefully give you that little bit more reading based on what category you’re most interested in – and I hope it helps!

Here goes: –

 

SIMPLIFY YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

  • Write a list of pros and cons of negative relationships and set boundaries
  • Write a list of supportive people in your life and reach out to them
  • Schedule time in your calendar to call friends and family

    I loved this! I usually don’t read all the articles but this one shows how using common sense can improve our lives.

    My house is bursting at the seams with clutter – when I’m looking for something often I can’t find it even though it is right in front of me, because there is so much other “stuff” around it. The idea of waiting 4 days before making a purchase is what flicked on the light switch for me. Let’s see what happens when I see a “must have” item – will I be able to wait 4 days? – how wonderful if I can come home empty handed. I already have 100 times more than what I really need……..fingers crossed that this will work for me. xx

    Chrissy,

    Thanks for sharing this infographic. I love how it clearly links getting organised with enjoying a simpler life!

    Personally, I often get overwhelmed with the ‘write down everything you need to do’ advice but I will be trying the 6-list idea. This sounds much more manageable. Thanks again. Lois
