8 Ways to Simplify Your Life Immediately

Posted on June 06, 2015 by Lucy Marie | 2 Comments

1.) Declutter 

Get rid of what's unnecessary. Physical clutter causes mental clutter. It's amazing how much clearer life can get when you take a few hours to get rid of the material things you don't need that are physically clogging up your space! 

2.) Donate 

Getting rid of unnecessary material possessions is liberating on its own. Take decluttering to the next level by donating items to those in need instead of just throwing everything away. 

3.) Complain Less

Give life a break. It's never perfect and it never will be. Complaining won't change anything about the situation, it will just give you a bad attitude and will also rub off on others. Complaining encourages discomfort and discomfort can make life complicated. 

4.) Say "No"

Over booking yourself and constantly extending your energy way beyond your limits makes day to day life extraordinarily complicated, not to mention exhausting. By over-accommodating  others now, you're burning yourself out and limiting what you can do for those around you in the future. 

5.) Make up your mind 

Lose phrases like "I don't know", or "ask me later". Save some time and energy by challenging yourself to be decisive in the moment. 

6.) Do it now 

Research shows that 95 percent of people report having procrastination problems. So, start making a conscious effort to, as worded by Benjamin Franklin, "Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today." 

7.) Think big first 

One of the best ways to stop procrastinating and get tasks off your plate is to put the hardest, most energy consuming task at the top of your to-do list. Not only will you be less stressed for the rest of the day by getting the big stuff out of the way, but you'll also be left with a sense of accomplishment to keep you motivated! 

8.) Ask for help 

There's no need for you to do everything on your own. No one gets an award for being able to do it all. Delegate your tasks at work and trust they'll get done and reach out to the friends and family around you to help manage your plate. You'll be surprise how many people are ready and willing to give you a hand. Plus, asking for help strengthens your relationship with the people around you.
