I Want to Simplify My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 121 People

    I began a journey to simplify my life.

    Boy has it been difficult. The best advice I can give is this: Step 1: Find out what is important to you (top 5 things) Step 2: Eliminate everything else. Step 3: When anything new comes along, ask yourself, will this simplify my life or complicate it?
