To me, to live simply means to let go of all that is unnecessary and stick to the essential, to make room in your life for what truly matters to you, to spend quality.

Trying to do it all, be it all and have it all is exhausting. All too often people find themselves asking, What was it all for? The sad conclusion for so many is that the things they pushed themselves to do and have were rarely that important and never led to the happy and fulfilling life they longed for. About ten years ago, something fundamentally shifted in the way I viewed my life. I began my evolution from someone who loved to hit the shops every Saturday and needed three wardrobes to fit all her clothes to someone who still loves beautiful things, but doesnt need many of them to keep her satisfied. It all started when I ended my career in banking, where massive paycheques and endless spending are a way of life, and moved back to Australia to begin my married life and start my own business.
Organization Utilize over-the-door, task oriented storage. Stop switching purses. Except when really necessary. Focus on using things up and wearing them out before you download a replacement.
Learn to prioritize quality over quantity. Both with belongings and experiences.
Give yourself enough time on either side to get from one thing to another comfortably. Switch towel rods in your home for hooks, which are easier—especially for kids—to use. Meaning, fewer wet towels on the ground! Reader idea!
Donate one item per week. Some weeks, it may be a whole bag, other weeks just one thing.
The point is getting into the habit of weeding out your belongings. Choose one surface—one—that you can declutter right now. The kitchen counters, your dining table, a desk or dresser, your catch-all drawer.
Donate extra towels and keep only one set per bathroom. This compels you to wash and re-hang quickly, without getting backlogged by laundry. Practice the 1-minutes rule: anything you can get done in one minute, do. This is a perfect exercise for summer, because it forces you to get creative at home or to get out and enjoy this beautiful season.
Donate most everything else. Eat a salad every day for lunch.
Take some time to make three two-week meal plans with corresponding grocery lists. Re-use and rotate them at will. Utilize paper products for some meals.
Technology Automate a few bill payments. Listen to music that makes you happy. Be happy with yourself — learn to be happy with yourself - or at least accept who you are and the choices you make.
Have some daily reflection time - no matter how busy your life is, you can afford to give yourself at least ten minutes each day to sit quietly without disturbance, close your eyes, relax and remove yourself from the rush.
This will really help to calm you and make life clearer. Activities such as meditation, yoga or walking in the countryside can help this process, but choose the way that suits you best. Reduce your radius of impact on the world - in general, the simpler and more local you can make your life, the smaller your radius of impact is likely to be and therefore the less complexity you will find. For example, downloading your food locally and downloading local produce where possible will reduce the range of processes, transactions and people involved in supplying your food.
Consume less — this is one of the most effective ways of reducing your radius of impact.
Find some trusted sources of information - no source of information is completely unbiased, but it is possible to build a selection of trusted sources that can summarise and filter some of the complexity in the world for you. By finding these sources and understanding their biases, you can build a useful resource to help you deal with the complexity of the world on an ongoing basis.
These may include newspapers, websites and other information resources. Get into nature - get away from the complexity of modern life and get into the countryside. Spending some time walking or simply sitting in nature can give us a sense of calm and perspective, and therefore contributes to our well-being. Pay attention to things — start to appreciate your experiences more — including simple things like having a cup of tea or walking down the street on a crisp, clear day.
As you begin to savour the simple things in life again you may find you have less time and inclination to bother yourself with all the complexities of modern life.
You are only able to process a finite amount of information and do a finite number of things in life, so make sure you choose the things that you care about, and try not to worry about the vast number of other possibilities in the world. Registered address:
