Keep it simple but simple doesn’t always mean easy.

We can place so much pressure on ourselves to achieve that sometimes life can get busy & pull us out of balance. key points to living simply include –

Accepting things that are out of your control. The moment our emotions take over we have lost the battle. Trying to keep a positive frame of mind on all the things you can control. The more we stop focusing on what others are doing & notice what’s going on in our own mind, leads us to the next point…

Staying present & being more mindful to what’s happening in the hear & now, what your feeling, thinking & doing. Where your mind goes your energy flows…

Being kind. We really don’t know what others are going through or had to go through to get where they are.

Define your life on your terms. Yes having a big house, car. etc are all lovely things but if your not happy in your job to acquire those things there is an imbalance. We only need what we need, & the reality is it doesn’t have to be that much. Ask yourself why your doing something & do you come up with a meaningful answer…

Be productive, cutting back on watching TV, noticing how much time you spend on social media. Do you exercise & move your body. Do you find the time to do things you enjoy. Notice the people who you spend your time with, do they make you feel good about yourself, supportive & encouraging. Trying to use your time productively will help you feel you are achieving personal goals & free up space to do the things you enjoy this includes self care & looking after yourself well.

Life is as simple as we allow it to be. Lao Tzu has a great quote to remember – “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These are your greatest treasures” 💛🖤💛
