Simplify Your Life So You Can Enjoy It

by Pam on September 28, 2017

Life is full of twists and turns, days filled with innumerable tasks, and moments of nothing. It all passes by in a blur, with important moments lost in the hustle of business. And the only way to slow it down and to be able to enjoy life is if we can structure and organize the busy and important (if not boring) parts of life.

Simplifying your life is a simple solution in theory, and harder in practice. But it is definitely worth the effort. By following a few directions and being strict in maintaining them, the rituals of your life become second nature and become as effortless as tying your shoelaces.

Finances

A person’s finances are one of the leading causes of stress in their lives. To organize your finances, you will need to be vigilant in planning and keeping your records up to date. Budgeting is a must – you need a detailed budget plan that is tailored to you, although you could use a template from places like Office.com to get you started.

If you have any debts, a way of simplifying them would be to consolidate them, through sites like consolidated.credit, this way you will only have to keep track of one debt payment a month. You can also simplify your other bills by arranging them to leave one account and having a second for personal use. The same can be said for having two savings account; one for emergencies like the car breaking down, and one for fun like a vacation. Multiple accounts might seem the opposite of simple, but in the process of allocating your money, much like filing records, you organize your finances better in your mind.

Health and Fitness

Being healthy when leading a busy life can be hard, as there never seems to be enough time to do anything properly. In this, you have to be strict with your time management. Set aside time to visit the gym and treat that scheduled time like you would an appointment and don’t miss it. If you haven’t the time to go to a gym, then consider creating a home gym – they don’t have to be extensive, nor do they need to be expensive.

Eating right can also be an issue in a busy day, you don’t always have time to sit and eat a meal. Again you need to manage your time better and make sure that you do. Eating right will help boost your energy and make the day less tiresome. Prepare a meal plan at the beginning of each week, and include all three meals plus three snacks a day. You can use a guide from fitness magazines, or from fitness chefs like John Wicks.

Work vs. Life Balance

The work vs. life balance can be tricky, but easily maintained when you get the hang of it. The key is to not take work home with you. When you get home, turn off your work phone, or mute any work chats. The odd occasion is fine, but as a general rule – your evenings and weekends are for you and your family.
