Day six MindBody Cleanse – The way of simplicity
Writer and designer Graham Hill asks:
Can having less stuff, in less room, lead to more happiness?
He makes the case for taking up less space, and lays out three rules for editing your life. This is one of my favorite areas as my own way of simplicity keeps me on my path to self-realization and happiness. As a mother of 4, I find it challenging to keep life simple but I find that the more I keep it simple the better I feel – I feel stronger with a clear mind and a clearer mind comes from decluttering and editing my life. Decluttering is not just about physical space- the funny thing is that when we clear out physical space we let in the light of clarity and peace. Look around you- Look at all the stuff can you clearly say that each item brings you joy? At the moment I am reading the life-changing magic of tidying up. By Marie Kondo…Amazing book – you must read it. a lovely listener recommended it for me.
So as Kondo teaches us let’s pick up each item in our life and ask
’‘what joy does this bring us today”. Kondo
Let not get distracted by clutter let focus upon what really counts.
