If your life is busy and cluttered, then I see you, and you are not alone. For years, I lived in a constant state of stress and overwhelm until making the conscious decision to pursue a simplified life.
It wasn’t always easy living in such a small space, but it was 100% worth it because I was able to save a TON of money. I became debt-free for the first time in my life, and then I saved enough to go on a seven-month honeymoon!
Now that we rent, I have so much freedom. We live in a high-rise apartment, so someone else does the yard work, cleans the pool, and worries about maintenance issues. Plus, if we want to leave, there’s no stress about selling.
I currently spend about 30 minutes a day cleaning plus about one hour a week catching up on loose ends (even with two children at home!).
Taking a break completely changed my viewing habits. I no longer watch it mindlessly; instead, I’m intentional about only turning it on when there’s something specific I want to watch.
I follow a simple eating philosophy, which means I don’t meal plan or cook elaborate meals. Instead, I keep things relaxed and simple by embracing a “food uniform”, which is similar to uniform dressing.
