6 Ways to Live a Simpler Life and Make More Time for the Important Things

Life is simple quote

It’s taken me until I’m almost 40, but I’ve recently realised there are 6 key ways to live a simpler life and make more time for the important things.

  1. Less stuff is better. Remove clutter to create calm.
  2. Be organised. Use your calendar and notes on your smartphone to set yourself goals and make to-do lists.
  3. Learn to say no. You can’t do everything, prioritise what is really important.
  4. Do more of what makes you happy. Life is short, spend it doing what you enjoy.
  5. Slow down. Take your time, enjoy the moment. Practice mindfulness.
  6. Learn to move on. Change, accept, let go.

If you are self employed you can apply these fundamental strategies to your business. Reduce your workload and the amount of stuff you have to deal with by delegation, prioritising work and outsourcing some of the tiresome but essential tasks that must be taken care of to run your business.

Be more organised, there are a wealth of apps and software available on the market which could simplify your processes saving you time and hassle.

Learn to say no. Everyone has their limits. We simply can’t do everything, be assertive and recognise when someone else could pick up certain tasks.

We are here for a short time, make the most of it by doing more of the things you enjoy, remind yourself why you went into business and what you love about your job. Surround yourself with the type of people you like, work on the projects which give you most fulfillment, give yourself free time to have fun and make memories.

Sometimes we need to remember to slow down a little, take time to enjoy the little wins, congratulate ourselves. Give yourself time to unwind and relax, breath in the fresh air and appreciate the simple little pleasures in life, such as going home early, making time for family and friends, enjoying the weekends, walks in the countryside or just simply having more time to yourself.

We all have our personal struggles, it’s easier said than done, but when we can learn to move on from situations by either making certain changes to our situation, environment or reaction, accepting the past and letting go of uncertainties in a why that can best help yourself and the situation you are in then you will have more head space for the more important things in life.

When we live a simpler life, we improve our state of mind. With a clearer mind we create clarity which ultimately eliminates stress, improves well being and helps you perform better and achieve your life goals!

My mission is to help my clients achieve clarity and harmony in their work-life balance, save time and become more productive, because life shouldn’t be a struggle. We all deserve the freedom to do more of what we love, and love what we do.
