Today (July 12th, 2019) is
National Simplicity Day!
This day falls on the birthday of, and honors, the transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau.
“Our life is frittered away by detail… simplify, simplify.” – Henry David Thoreau
On this day we are encouraged to take a step back from our fast paced, busy lifestyles and look for ways to simplify our day to day lives.
This provides an opportunity to declutter and get rid of any extra things weighing us down.
Try taking a moment or two to step out into nature and relax, find peace of mind, and balance by tuning out the rest of the world and focusing on the little things, or on the vastness of the universe in comparison to us.
“The simplest things are often the truest.”- Richard Bach
Ways To Simplify:
Make a list of what’s important to you- try to include goals you’ve made, things you love, and activities you enjoy. By recognizing and acknowledging the things you value in life, you can start to simplify you’re day by choosing, and appreciating, the valued parts over the unnecessary ones.
Declutter! If you don’t have time to purge the whole house of clutter, then pick one section (like your bathroom makeup drawer or the junk drawer in your office) and take the time to be thorough when you clean it!
Put your bank account at ease by cutting off impulse buying. Unless it’s on the list for the shopping trip, don’t buy it! Make the list and trip once a week to help yourself prioritize and plan for the week ahead.
Look at your week/month/etc. and the activities you do throughout that time. What do you consider to be worth your time? Which activities make you happy or bring you joy? Do they improve your life? If not, why are you doing those activities? Consider the value of your time and how you can make the most (and the best) out of your life every day.
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things.”- Robert Brault
