Keeping the house and the office in a clean,orderly manner is one of the ways one can be said to be living a simple,uncomplicated life but simplicity of lifestyle involves a lot more.
Simplicity has more to do with ways of thought and mindsets than it has to do with decisions and actions that those who so live take.
The following are some of the benefits that will be enjoyed by those of us who take up simple living.
We live in a world where everything moves fast and events seem to take place at a dizzying speed but those who live simply develop the kind of mindset and attitude that enables them to keep calm and sober and not adopt a reactive response to what happens around them.
When things get a little too busy and seem to get more complicated by the day,simplicity is the attitude that helps you keep sane so that you don’t act in a rush and end up saying or doing things that you didn’t intend to say or do. Simple living calls us to be a little more introspective and thoughtful and to take our time before we give our responses,turning potentially bad situations to ones we can easily manage.
When we decide to start living simple lives,we face all our fears,deal with whatever discomfort we have to deal with, such as letting a partner who has shown no regard for our feelings go. 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. We find time to do important things such as meditation.
You will also get to enjoy better health. 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.
When we are no longer slaves to stuff,when we stop worrying about money and debts,when we start enjoying better health and better personal relationships,we start feeling truly free and liberated.
We are not spending less and surviving on less so that we can amass wealth to intimidate others,we want to share our abundance with those who are in need and tell you what? The feeling is awesome.
Simplicity as a way of life is something you may want to give some thought to as the benefits to be derived from it are many and amazing.
