5 Ways To Simplify Your Life

Do you ever find yourself getting bogged down with routine day-to-day stuff, so much so that you don’t have the time or energy to focus on what’s really important? All too often these common obstacles get in the way of our most important goals so it’s key to keep things simple if you want to move forward personally or professionally…

Goodbye Obstacles

If it’s time to give your home or work life a bit of TLC here’s an easy 5 step plan to help you simplify your life today: –

1.  Clear Your Head

If you’re stressed or overwhelmed it’s important to empty your brain of any emotional baggage you’re carrying around or any to-do lists that are piling up inside your head.  Lighten your mental load by writing down what’s taking up precious mind-space and deal with any issues or tasks that have been lingering around for too long.

2.  Get Rid Of Bloodsuckers

Take a moment to think about the people you spend most of your time with and eliminate relationships that are sucking the energy out of you.  We become a reflection of the 5 people we spend most of our time with so work out who’s supporting you and helping lift you, and cut back on the time you spend with those that drag you down.

3.  Clean Up

Your mind is often a reflection of your physical surroundings so if your desk is a tip or there’s chaos going on at home you’ll find it much harder to have a clear and resourceful mind.  Spring clean, de-clutter and get organised.

4.  Learn To Say No

No was probably one of the first words you learnt to say as a child so why do so many of us have difficulty using it now?!  Your time is important so learn to say no more often so that you can create more time for you, and your priorities.

5.  Trash Tradition

Just because you’ve always done something a certain way doesn’t mean you have to continue on that path.  Start questioning why you do routine tasks a certain way and if it no longer makes sense, change it or stop doing it all together.  You might just find that giving up the way you ‘always do’ something actually helps you simplify your day and create more time to focus on your goals.

With 2013 just around the corner now is a great time to reassess your work and home life, and make some changes that will help you make the new year a stellar one!
