Simple living is more than things which can be observed,it entails things and attitudes that cannot be immediately seen.
Simple living starts with making a conscious decision to adopt such a lifestyle,and while the individual will start doing things and making decisions or responding to issues a little differently than before,simplicity is something that works from inside out.
Some of the advantages of simple living are listed hereunder.
If you adopt a simple life,you will not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by circumstances in life,you will take time to think through things and will be deliberate in the way you approach everything that occurs to you in life.
One of the greatest benefits to be enjoyed from simple living is that you are able to create time so that you can see all the unpleasant events of life for exactly what they are:mere distractions that shouldn’t result in a loss of personal focus and concentration. When others confront you for whatever reason,you will engage in some reflection before you can answer them,and this gives you tremendous control over situations and even people.
We sit back and take stock of our personal lives,and make a conscious decision to get out of our lives whatever situation or individuals that are no longer supportive to our values and personal aspirations-things such as debt or a crappy job. We suddenly find that our lives no longer drive us,and that we have all the time we need to do that which truly matters to us. Anyone who starts living simply finds that there is ample time to commit to what is uplifting and supportive,no longer do they say that they can’t meditate or practice some gratitude for lack of time.
Simple living is all about kicking stress out of your life and as a result,you will get to enjoy robust health and wellness. Simple living will even help save you money-you will find that your medical bill comes down as you will be seeing your doctor less frequently.
On our death bed,we don’t want to say that we wish we had spent less time on our gadgets and electronics and more of it working to build relationships that really matter;simple living helps us remove “electronic and technological clutter” so that we can focus more on inner peace and the family.
Committing to a life of simplicity is taking a step towards personal independence and freedom for we no longer wait for the validation of others,instead we set our standards and live by them.
Simplicity naturally leads to abundance and allows us to distribute some of it with the less fortunate in life.
If you want to enjoy more abundance,more peace of mind and better health,declutter,unplug and fully simplify your life.
