Live Simply and Become Happier and More Satisfied
When we think of living simply,thoughts of clean desks,homes devoid of clutter and kitchen counters that are clean come to mind,but simplicity is much more than this.
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.
These are some of the reasons you may want to consider adopting simple living as a new approach to life.
If you adopt a simple life,you will not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by circumstances in life,you will take time to think through things and will be deliberate in the way you approach everything that occurs to you in life.
To decide to start living simply is to decide that you want to be more in charge of your life. Simple living turns us into people who are more proactive than reactive,people who respond to the external environment from a calm and thoughtful place deep inside of us.
We sit back and take stock of our personal lives,and make a conscious decision to get out of our lives whatever situation or individuals that are no longer supportive to our values and personal aspirations-things such as debt or a crappy job. We suddenly find that our lives no longer drive us,and that we have all the time we need to do that which truly matters to us. Anyone who starts living simply finds that there is ample time to commit to what is uplifting and supportive,no longer do they say that they can’t meditate or practice some gratitude for lack of time.
You will also get to enjoy better health. 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.
When we wrestle our lives away from the power of gadgets such as computers and black berries,we will find that we have become more attentive to that person with whom we share our life.
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.
Simplicity naturally leads to abundance and allows us to distribute some of it with the less fortunate in life.
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.
