Keeping the house and the office in a clean,orderly manner is one of the ways one can be said to be living a simple,uncomplicated life but simplicity of lifestyle involves a lot more.
Simple living starts with making a conscious decision to adopt such a lifestyle,and while the individual will start doing things and making decisions or responding to issues a little differently than before,simplicity is something that works from inside out.
The following are some of the benefits that will be enjoyed by those of us who take up simple living.
We live in a world where everything moves fast and events seem to take place at a dizzying speed but those who live simply develop the kind of mindset and attitude that enables them to keep calm and sober and not adopt a reactive response to what happens around them.
When things get a little too busy and seem to get more complicated by the day,simplicity is the attitude that helps you keep sane so that you don’t act in a rush and end up saying or doing things that you didn’t intend to say or do. When others confront you for whatever reason,you will engage in some reflection before you can answer them,and this gives you tremendous control over situations and even people.
Simple living enables us to cut out from our lives all that which is life sucking and destructive. Simple living is a commitment to do some self evaluation so that you may begin to dedicate time and personal resources to activities that help you to grow in all desired dimensions-we realize that we have always wanted to become a writer and just start writing! We no longer say that we don’t have time to read or write or practice an edifying exercise such as gratitude.
Simple living is all about kicking stress out of your life and as a result,you will get to enjoy robust health and wellness. A person who lives simply will create a personal lifestyle that includes exercising and better nutrition and this means that they will naturally grow more healthy.
On our death bed,we don’t want to say that we wish we had spent less time on our gadgets and electronics and more of it working to build relationships that really matter;simple living helps us remove “electronic and technological clutter” so that we can focus more on inner peace and the family.
Committing to a life of simplicity is taking a step towards personal independence and freedom for we no longer wait for the validation of others,instead we set our standards and live by them.
Since we need less and less to be happy in life,we have more and more resources to share with others and this makes us feel good about ourselves.
If you desire to enjoy more personal freedom,peace of mind and to have more abundance in the long run, consider discarding your current hectic lifestyle for one that is more relaxed and happier.
