“There is nothing more beautiful than living a simple life in this complex universe!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Simplicity is not a destination. Simplicity is in reach right now, and you can live a simpler life anytime. Like anything else, simplicity is about choice.

Enjoy simplicity by choosing to …

Wake up 10 minutes early and spend the beginning of your day stretching, or being quiet instead of rushing to get out the door.

Deal with your worry instead of letting anxiety take over your day.

Eat healthy food that is nutritious for your body.

Celebrate your progress instead of beating yourself up for what you have not achieved.

Be grateful for where you are now and for how far you have come in self improvement.

Choose solitude instead of trying to navigate through the noise .

Spend time outdoors and appreciate nature.

Support good people doing great things instead of complaining about bad people doing bad things.

Dress with less, instead of following a continual replenishment mentality

Give more and take less.

Follow the words of Steve Maraboli ….’The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.’

‘Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.’
Elise Boulding
