We have a lot of things going on in our lives, and as a result, we feel frustrated and annoyed.
Have you had a situation when you’re feeling bad for no reason at all? There is always a reason we just can’t realize it immediately.
Sometimes we are just too overwhelmed with the situations around us that makes us feel that way but finding what exactly is causing the problem and address them is the only way you can simplify your life.
And by doing so, you’ll not only simplify your life, but it will make you feel happy and stress-free as well.
The procedure of simplifying life doesn’t have to be complicated. Most of the time, getting rid of even small things can have a huge impact on our lives.
It is going to take some time and won’t happen in a day or two. But just by following a proper routine and doing everyday tasks more mindfully, you can have a simple and happy life easily.

HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE
Okay, so without further ado, let’s get started
Declutter your wardrobe
I like to clean my closet every once in a while. I definitely recommend having a capsule wardrobe if you don’t want to waste your time thinking about what to wear every morning especially when you have tons of clothes but nothing to wear.
If you’re hearing the capsule wardrobe for the first time, a capsule wardrobe is basically a wardrobe with the certain number of clothing pieces you can wear by mixing and matching.
There are many great youtube videos you can watch to know more about a capsule wardrobe.
The laptop is the least organized device we all have. I often go through all of my folders and files and delete everything I don’t need.
If you have an app on your mobile device you don’t use anymore, this is a good time to uninstall it, too. Doing that will free up your device’s space. Ultimately, we should always aim to keep things that we actually need.
If you have subscribed to emails that you never really open or are not relevant to you anymore, consider unsubscribing them, so you’ll only have emails that are actually relevant to you.
Clean your workspace
This step is even more important for people working from home, especially in this pandemic time.
You should regularly clean your desk, desktop, keyboard, mouse, etc. I prefer cleaning my workspace on the weekends.
I don’t like messy desks and that’s why I only keep things I use, otherwise, I try to put them in a drawer or elsewhere away from the working space.
Your desk usually contains bacteria, so I’d suggest not eating at your desk.
PS – Avoid working while sitting in your bed as it will be difficult for you to concentrate and most likely you’ll feel lazy and sleepy. I used to do this, but now I’ve completely stopped it and I’m glad that I did.
You shouldn’t only avoid gossip but also the people who LOVES doing it, even if they are someone from your family and friends. Try to maintain a distance from them.
Those kinds of people always have negative things to share with others and can drain your positive energy.
Always remember if they can gossip with you about someone else, they can gossip about you with someone else as well.
Pay your debt on time
The first priority should be to avoid unnecessary purchases. Despite that, if you are in debt, pay that as soon as you can.
It’s so important to pay your credit card bill on time. It’s going to help you have a better credit score that can benefit you in so many ways in the long term and, in addition to that, you don’t have to pay a lot of interest each month, which means more savings.
Reduce screen time
Most of us work in a field where we can’t avoid sitting in front of a screen, but there are a few things we can do, such as limiting our screen time before going to bed, stop binge-watching after work, enjoying a day outside.
Spend some time with yourself
I love spending time with myself every day.
You may start doing it just by going to a cafe and enjoying your own company. I am sure you’ll love it.
If you’re thinking it’s weird, let me tell you, it’s not. I actually get most of my great ideas when I’m alone, so it’s definitely worth a try.
why do some people don’t like to spend time with themselves?
I was talking to one of my friends a few days back and she said that she doesn’t prefer to spend time alone because of the negative thoughts she gets.
I think this is something that happens to all of us.
But instead of running away from those negative thoughts, trying to find a reason, then looking for a solution should be a priority rather than escaping from something you don’t like.
Sometimes there could be a problem that needs to be addressed, but we are ignoring it, which can be the worst possible thing to do.
Or another reason could be that you’re just assuming a worst-case scenario.
For example, you want to start a business but you don’t want to invest because you aren’t sure if it’s the right thing to do. You’re just assuming everything that could go wrong instead of building a business and working on strategies.
Pin for later
