5 Ways to Simplify Life and Boost Health
By Genevieve Cunningham
A simple life is the best life. It might not seem like it on face value -- because who doesn’t love the expensive gadgets and busy schedules -- but the more simple you can make your life, the more likely you are to be happy. But how do we do this? We’re all so used to the hustle and bustle … what does a simple life even look like? If you’re ready to simplify your life, take a look at these five tips.
Throw Out Clothes and Shoes
Have you ever walked into a full closet and still been unable to find clothes? It’s because you have too much. If you want to make life simple, throw out what you don’t wear. Stop drowning yourself in belongings. Keep a modest wardrobe of things you actually wear, and life will be a lot easier.
Empty Your Inbox
If you’re staring at hundreds or thousands of emails every time you login, you have a problem. Schedule some time to go through it. Trash what’s not important and read the things that matter. Then work diligently to keep this aspect of your life minimal to reduce stress.
Make a Schedule
A schedule can do wonders for your mental well-being. It gets overwhelming trying to keep up with everything that we have to do. Stop. Write it down or use a digital calendar to set reminders and keep you on track. This clears up much needed brain space and lowers anxiety in the long run.
Close Your Tabs
Are you at your computer with five or more tabs open? Unfortunately, most people are this way. While this may not seem like a big deal, it actually causes us to be distracted and raises stress levels. Open one tab. Use it to do your work, then get off of the computer. Though this seems like a small detail, it’s the little things that keep us healthy and happy.
Are you taking time at the end of the day to wind down? If you’re not, you’re missing the opportunity for serious stress relief. Grab a book and some tea, go outside, and relax! And then do whatever routine works for you every night. This one step helps lower stress and anxiety and keeps you feeling more positive about everyday life.
Boosting your health doesn’t always have to be complicated. Sometimes it’s the small things that make the biggest difference. Use these tips to simplify life and boost health. With some very small changes, you may notice a massive improvement in the way that you feel about your life now and what’s to come.
