I ve been learning about the minimalist lifestyle for nearly a decade now entering.
At time my life has changed a lot right now I work for myself. I have,
Flexibility with how I spend my time and energy. Of course, we still have a lot of responsibilities. Motherhood and self employment. Both keep you busy, but overall there's a lot of breathing room in my everyday life. I am so grateful for this space because I know it
gift? It truly is at various times in my life, I've been on the other side, marking fifty sixty and even seventy
plus hour weeks, just to make ends meet
the long commute I've juggled multiple jobs, and I know how it feels

of you, hearing this being busy and exhausted,
Ms still, your reality,
Tired- and you know you need simplicity in your life, but with everything going on, you have no timer.
energy to get started its an unfortunate cycle that keeps you stock right.
If this house, familiar than I wrote this posed for you here, are three practical ways: he can start simplifying your life,
even without a lot of time or energy, to spare no time to declare do this. Instead, almost every
blog post about simple living or minimalism, encourages you to start by declaring this isn't bad advice
Decoupling will help you simplify your life, but if you're busy, focusing anti cluttering can actually keep you stock. Why? Because, even if you break it down into small tasks at the end
day is still a big job. We already have a lot on your plate de cluttering and therefore simplify. Your life often ends up in the too hard basket
do you have something to do one day when you finally have more time. Of course, the next thing you know, weeks months or even years pass and nothing has changed. The good news is
There is one very important thing you can do right now to simplify your life and it takes no time. In fact, it actually saves you time stop shopping for things you don't need
ultimately making this change is so much more than de cluttering snotty sexy, and I know it's more exciting to think about a pinterest worthy minimalist home.
but I promise you of your more concerned with how your life feels on the inside and how it looks on the outside. Then this is a powerful place to start, as he learned to be mindful consumer used our thinking differently about your stuff,
This mindset shift is essential for minimalism and, if you take time to nurture it, you'll find cluttering. So much easier
We finally have the time to tackle it, lay the foundations for intentional living.
Here's the biggest lesson I've learned about minimalism is that has less to do
what you own and everything to do with living with intention. Part of this process
questioning how your things, everything from your physical possessions to your time commitments. I value your life. Why,
do the things you do. Why do you
The things you own cultivating the habit of asking these questions is something you to start doing right now, even if you don't have the time or capacity to follow up with action,
practice anyway, seek and learn more about yourself and wire. Life is busy and cluttered in the first place,
Why are you always working late? Why you spend so much time on your phone
Why you own so many clothes. Admittedly asking these questions takes a lot of mental energy, something that's often in short supply when you're busy by promised that is worth making the effort
Tal part of cultivating intentional mindset and the more you practice, the easier it will become with,
I'm real, develop a better understanding of the root cause of the clutter in your life.
and this is essential for clearing it- think of it. This way, if you don't know the cause of your problem than how
You truly go about solving it. Every minute matters.
Finally, I know that when we're busy it's easy to convince ourselves that there is no point in starting small, I don't have time.
Work out or reed or eat healthy, or simplify my life right now,
but later, when I have more time sound familiar
said some version of this statement more times and I could possibly count but, as James Clear wrote in his book, atomic habits quote: every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become end quote. In other words, every
We do matters. If you want to simplify your life, don't be afraid to start small.
Then, when you're busy, can you find just five minutes to work towards creating a life you want? Mouse does might look like on subscribing from one email.
Fluttering won t shirt, revenge, spinning five minutes sitting in silence,
if you're not sure where to begin keep it simple. Look around you what's one,
They must not adding value to your life. When, how can you let go if all you have is five minutes? That's ok, stars!
or with any of the ideas in this post, and I can guarantee you that if you keep showing up, it will make a difference.
The other hand waiting for the perfect time when you're, finally, less busy is an almost guaranteed way to put off living your best life alone can be hard, but I promise you miss worth it.
