This week, my word of the week is “simplify” This is motivation for so much more than just de-cluttering a physical space.
Over time we all collect so many types of clutter – mental clutter, spiritual clutter, personality clutter (those prickly personality quirks that accumulate over the years) and wellness clutter to name a few.
The more things pile up, the more likely we are to be overwhelmed and stuck.
I’ve found that peeling away at each layer of things that are keeping me stuck helps when I’m focusing on taking action to achieve simplicity and clarity.
If the big things are too much to deal with, it helps to start with the smallest, simplest thing.
This could be as simple as asking someone a question if you don’t have enough information about something or going for a 10 minute walk if exercising has fallen off your priority list.
As we simplify and peel away layers of different types of clutter, we can move toward being our better and happier selves.
Have you been simplifying more over time?
