Whether it’s a new year or a life change, simplifying your life can produce personal growth. You probably have some clutter in your life that you don’t even realize steals your time and energy. I did. Until I was forced into a new routine in January I had no idea. So, please consider these 3 easy ways to simplify your life.
APPS, APPS AND MORE APPS!
If you’re like me you’ve probably downloaded a ton of apps, many you never use or really don’t even need. I took the time and evaluated to keep JUST the apps I use. As you can see from the screenshot I REALLY decluttered. It actually feels great!
1 BOX IS ALL YOU NEED
You may have your office at work decorated with your personality. I’m all for that – it SHOULD reflect you and the things that make you unique. Recently, I cleaned out my work office, and I filled three boxes with picture frames, books, and successful projects from the past 20 years. When I got home I took the time to simplify those three boxes down to one. Many books and paperwork from the past 20 years now have their place at home. Maybe your work office needs a good clean-up too: desk drawers, walls, and your desktop. I imagine you’ll feel great afterwards!
Remember back to 2008 when Facebook was the new rage? Then, you may have opened accounts on Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. Throw in Twitter, Gab, Parler, YouTube, Vimeo, and whatever else and you’re literally managing your social media like a full-time job. In 2020, it came to a point where my time and energy on social media became too time consuming and unhealthy, so I deleted everything except for LinkedIn. I’ve had some FOMO, but I’ve made it a point to keep connected with many by texting.
Simplifying and decluttering can give you back important moments and memories in your day and can even lead to more peace and productivity.
