Simplify Your Life Week
It's easy to fall into a lifestyle of too fast, too much, too busy. The first week of August is Simplify Your Life Week and it's a great time to make a commitment to simplify, organize, and prioritize. Here are six ideas to get you started in your journey to peaceful simplicity:
1. Simplify Your Meals
Make one crockpot meal this week. Simple foods, simple recipes, cooked simply - toss some ingredients into the crockpot in the morning and your dinner is ready when you get home from work.
2. Simplify Your Facebook Friends
Clean up your Facebook friends list and free up some time. Do you really need to read 816 daily updates?
3. Simplify Your Banking
Use cash for purchases instead of the debit card. Keep some cash out when you deposit your paycheck, or make just one trip to the ATM. You'll have fewer receipts and spend less time trying to balance your checkbook.
4. Simplify Your TV Viewing
Eliminate one show from your viewing schedule. Spend that time with loved ones or going for a walk. Even better - spend that time going for a walk with loved ones!
5. Simplify Your To-Do List
Do a task on your To-Do List that you've been putting off doing. It will finally be finished, and you can check it off your list.
6. Simplify Your Home
Grab a bag and go through your home gathering things you don't need, use, wear or want and you can get rid of excess clutter a little at the time. If you end up with a bag of nice things, drop them off at a local thrift shop.
