Simplify Your Life

Modern life is ridiculously busy and complex.  In order to restore a sense of balance and contentment to our lives, we can do less, own less, worry less, and push ourselves less.

If your life is too complex, try these:

  • Throw out a third of your clothes, books, and possessions you do not absolutely need.

  • Reduce your daily work hours by 10 percent.

  • Schedule three nights a week when you do nothing social.

  • See less of the friends or family who exhaust you.

Spend twenty minutes a day sitting on a sofa doing nothing.

Follow these steps, and you'll find that within mere weeks you're more organized, less tired, and considerably happier.
