If 1 represents simple,
and 10 represents complicated,
then on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your lifestyle?
Have you simplified anything in your life so far this year? If so, what?
What changes toward simplifying your life would you like to make overall?
What aspects of simplifying your life would you be willing to change this year?
Pick any of these simplification strategies you would be willing to try or start in the next few months :
Pack a lunch
Have only one credit card
Get out of debt
Downsize your home
Unsubscribe from email lists you don’t read
Work where you live
Consolidate bank accounts
Learn to say no
Declutter your home
Vacation near or at home
Simplify eating habits to whole, unprocessed foods
Buy in bulk, and shop less often
Put your phone on silent when it’s not needed
Take only one suitcase, and pack only essentials
Stop trying to please people and just be yourself
Do what you want for a living
Stop trying to change people
Get rid of possessions you don’t need or use
Buy for functionality and durability rather than for fashion
Some changes are simple. And some will be a process.
A good way to decide on things to get rid of, is to put them away for a year. If you haven’t needed them or thought of them throughout the year, then it may be time to donate them.
