"Simplifying is about gaining control of your life and your possessions,
creating more time to do the things you want to do and spend with the people you love."
"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so the necessary may speak."
- Hans Hoffman
Are you trying to achieve some kind of balance in your life?
Have you told yourself lately that you need to stop working so much and spend a little more time with family and friends, stop spending money on things that you don't need, start creating some healthier habits like eating better and exercising, getting enough sleep so that you can be more productive during the day or maybe starting a daily meditation routine?
Maybe what you are looking for is a way to just simplify your life, but you don't know how.

Here are a few tips to help you create some breathing room in your life.
Like they say......Less is usually more
Here we go.........

Before you make your next purchase ask yourself.....Is this going to bring value to my life......Do I really need this?
- Forgiveness........get rid of anger, hate, revenge, jealousy. Don't drag your emotional baggage around with you everywhere. It will weigh you down. Learn to forgive and to let things go.
- Take a good look at the people that you surround yourself with. Are they being supportive of you and your dreams. Sometimes the people closest to you can also weight you down Maybe they are just being "very negative". Learn to de-clutter your frienships. Learn to spend quality time with people that you truly care about and that cares about you. When I talk about quality time I am referring to time without checking your cellphone every 10 seconds. Learn to shut down your cell phones and your electronics. Be present!
Less stress, less clutter, fewer bills. De-clutter your life and you will be able to focus your energy on the things that matter most.
