Embrace Yourself: How to Have A Simple Life

Life is usually never simple. While we could definitely say that computers and phones have made life a lot easier, however, it's never been simple. Sometimes computers and phones can make our life more complicated. Yes, phones are great when you're traveling and need directions, it's awesome for me when I'm away from home and I can text my parents easily. Aside from phones, there are some ways that we can have a simple life.  

This seems laughable if you have children (especially) to think you're going to reach serenity. But really, all it takes is 5 minutes. You can choose to meditate for a couple of minutes, or just listen to some of your favorite sounds like nature, rain, thunder, fire crackling. There are plenty of apps you can download to have all of those sounds. Just listen and in under 5 minutes you'll be instantly more relaxed. 

Exercise is very good for you, but I'm sure I don't need to tell you that. Aside from being physically healthy for you, it is good for you mentally as well. If you work in an office or at a desk all day, taking just a few minutes a day to get in some stretches can really help you. 

Getting Rid of Clutter
Less is more when you're talking about simplicity. When you have a bunch of stuff laying around it's hard to live simply. Get rid of any kind of clutter. Whether it's physical clutter lying around your house, emotional clutter or mental clutter in your mind. There are plenty of shirts you don't wear in your closet. I tend to hoard coupons well after they expire. But they have got to go! For a start, pick 5 things in your house you don't need or want. Get rid of them. Often times, that's all the motivation you need. You will probably end up getting rid of a few more! 

How do you live simply?
