I know there are a lot of experts out there who are amazing to learn from. But I find myself burning out on how-to podcasts filled with tips and tricks. I love them, but it’s just too much for me sometimes, I start thinking about everything I have been doing wrong and everything I need to do better.
So I have been intentional about creating this show to inspire women and start conversations, not act as a rule book with which to measure how well you are living.
That said, I have had a lot of positive feedback about episodes where I provide concrete tools like downloadable guides and quizzes to help you make some changes if that is what you are looking to do. So in this shortie solo episode I am going to talk about about figuring out where to start simplifying your life.
You’ve heard me talk about this before, when trying to better yourself in anyway, it is so easy to get overwhelmed. There is so much information and so many opinions that it can seem impossible to find the right things to do and make all of the right changes, and then, you know, actually sustain them! Especially when trying to simplify your life, this overwhelm is so destructive and discouraging.
So I am here to tell you, first of all, that there is no ONE absolutely right way to live a simple and sustainable life. You need to figure out what this looks like FOR YOU, in your own life. And this is likely to change throughout the different seasons of your life.
And second, I am going to help you cut through all of the noise to find what area of your life you should start simplifying. We all suffer the consequences of having overly full and cluttered lifestyles. However, the clutter and baggage in some aspects of our lives might be weighing us down more than others. You might just be feeling generally, tired and overwhelmed and not really even be able pinpoint why. But don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
Here are the four starting spaces in which I have seen dramatic changes when I focused on simplifying them: My Closet, my Kitchen, my Calendar, and my Mind. So let’s dive on into each of these spaces and figure out how to identify if they need some simplifying and some ways you can get started doing just that!
Take this quiz to find out which area of your life you should start focusing on simplifying first!
