To Do List: SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE

simplify your life

Simplifying your life should be, well…simple.  But it’s not. It will probably take some time and effort, but if you take the following steps, you will be on your way to a more peaceful life. (Click on the links for inspiration!)

  • CLARIFY

What is important to you?  Prioritizing is a first step in determining what you want out of life. Determining True Life Values

  • CLEAN UP

Clutter is not your friend. A tidy, organized space makes life easier.  If you’ve ever spent twenty minutes searching for your keys, that is time you will never get back. Taking the time to declutter your life will pay off in big ways! How to Declutter Your Home

  • CUT BACK

Having too many material possessions can complicate life more than you can imagine.  They drain your bank account, your energy and your time.  They can keep you from truly experiencing life as it happens because you’re always in search of the next “thing”. Time invested in removing extraneous possessions from your life will be well worth it. Don’t Just Declutter, De-own!

  • SAY NO

Learn the power of saying no.  Say yes to invites and activities that matter to you…that inspire you.  Say yes to spending time with people you care about.  But learn to say no when the event or activity does not serve you in some way.  A polite “no thank you” will save your time and energy for what is meaningful to you. Learning to say No

  • DISCONNECT

We spend more and more time plugged in.  When you are obsessively checking your email and social media accounts, life is passing you by.  Technology is wonderful, but it shouldn’t replace real life experiences. So, take time to disconnect from technology and connect with your surroundings and the people you care about. Disconnect!

 

These are just a few ideas for ways to simplify your life.  If you are buying or selling a home, you can count on Greg Taylor to make the process as simple as possible for you!
