10 Simple Ways To Have A Less Chaotic, Happier Life
The simplest and the most effective way to minimise distraction – is to declutter.
The fewer material things you have, the less clutter you’ll have mentally too.
2. Wake Up Early
Avoid those rushed morning schedules that get your day off to a bad start.
- Wake up earlier.
- Enjoy first light.
- Focus on priorities.
You’ll feel calmer and relaxed as you start your day.
3. Let Go
Let go of things that don’t spark joy.
Throw away or donate these items that you no longer wear, need, use or want.
Start with an easy, quick win, that will motivate you to keep going. Start with your:
- living room
- spare room
- garage or
4. Eat Healthily
This is a very common goal at this time of year.
Think about how to feed your body well. Research foods that help with any illnesses or ailments you have. Eliminate junk food from your diet.
5. Shop Less
If you’re a bit of a shopaholic, think about WHY you shop so much. Boredom? The fear of missing out? perhaps it’s your social escape?
Shopping can’t solve your problems, and often adds to them if you are buying items that you really don’t need or want. Save your money and your time by focusing on some more positive habits.
6. Make Time For Important Things
Forget the I should, I wish, I really want to …. statements and start doing.
- Read to your children more.
- Spend quality time with your grandchildren.
- Phone your friend.
- Visit your relative and go for a walk.
- Exercise to lose weight.
- Start taking action.
7. Don’t Overcommit
Overcommitting kills simplicity. You can try to:
- Block out quiet time for yourself
- Say no
- Plan your day more efficiently.
8. Allow Yourself To Rest
Some might think that doing nothing is a bad thing but setting aside a little R&R can do wonders for your well-being.
It’s important to:
- recharge your batteries
- relax and enjoy the moment
- take some time to reset after a stressful day.
9. Travel Light
Ladies, what’s in your handbag? Clean it out and only carry necessities.
What does the inside of your car look like? If it’s littered with take-away food items and general rubbish then it’s time to clear it out.
What do you take to work each day? Do you need to be lugging everything to and fro? Is there a better alternative?
If you try to carry less things with you on a daily basis you will feel less burdened.
10. Pay Attention
Attention is a valuable possession.
Give your attention to who and what deserves it.
Avoid giving too much of it to time-wasters (toxic relationships) or time-wasting activities (social media, school mom chit-chat in the playground).
Enjoy making changes and living a less chaotic, happier life.
