Ah, to simplify! Life throws us a curve ball every now and then. Sometimes, we take that “opportunity” to re-evaluate our lives a bit; decide what is really important, where we should best spend our precious time.
Our lives are busy and we work hard. Perhaps we should consider working just as hard at taking care of ourselves. One way would be to lower our stress by changing some habits that really don’t serve us, but eat up our precious time. I find that just turning off the TV/computer gives me more time to do things for myself to relax and clear my mind.
What chores/activities could you streamline to make your life more enjoyable? For example, do you really need to shop at 3 supermarkets for deals, buy the latest in electronics, clothes, and more stuff ? Should you spread yourself so thin being involved in so many committees/sports/activities that you’ve got nothing left over for you or your loved ones ?
Simplify where you can and make time for things more important in your life. Time is precious.
