Ever feel weighed down by the hustle and bustle of every day life? I know I do. You reach a point where you begin to look desperately for a way to squeeze in some down time or even a vacation, but you can’t seem to be able to justify fitting it in anywhere. You’re worn out from driving around to run errands and chauffeur people around. You and your significant other hardly spend time together that doesn’t involve talking about finances, children, or something that requires problem solving. You want to pursue your life goals and realize that there’s not enough time in a day, or in a year for that matter.
My answer? Kiss. Yes, KISS… Keep It Simple, Silly! We can run around pursuing all sorts of dreams, committing to all sorts of causes or sports. In the end, how many of these are actually helping you attain your ultimate goal? I’ve found simplicity to be an important part of self-care. When it’s simple, it’s not very stressful.
Simplicity gives you a clear sense of direction, whereas complexity pulls you in many directions at once. The key to happiness, in my mind, is not about having more or doing more, but in being the best version of yourself. To do so, you need a clear sense of direction and purpose, which comes from simplicity.
