I used to put everyone else's requests and needs first and if there was any time left over at the end of the day for what I needed and wanted to do, that was acceptable. That is until I began to realize that if you and I are going to be effective time managers, we have to stay away from allocating our time solely on the basis of those who demand it. Instead, if you and I are going to be effective time managers, we have to allocate our time on the basis of those who deserve it.
Perhaps you woke up one morning to realize the old joke is true: "Even if you finish the rat race in first, you're still a rat." Or maybe, the thought crept in more slowly, wedging itself into your consciousness while sitting in the five o'clock traffic jam as you commute home. However it appeared, you now realize it's time for a change to a simpler way of life.
But how do you start? These 10 steps will provide you with guidance to propel you along the path.
Brad Swift, founder of Life on Purpose, shares his favorite insights, steps, and actions that people can take to enhance the quality of their lives.
Have you made your New Year's goals? Use these 7 easy steps for reaching your New Year's Resolutions.
When you are feeling that you are way out of balance - too much stress, too full of a calendar, too little pleasure in everyday life - it may have a domino effect. You may have trouble sleeping. You may overeat. You may use your tight, high-pitched voice every time you talk to the kids. You may be so self-absorbed that you pay little attention to your spouse. You can begin to feel overwhelmed and unable to cope with anything.
Making grape juice is a very simple process. The method shown is even simpler because the juice will be frozen instead of canned. To be fair, canning is not a difficult process, but even though my mother and grandmother canned produce, I have always chosen freezing.
One of the most rewarding ways to begin simplifying your life is to begin to deepen and smooth your relationships with your family and close friends. This is especially true if you have a person in your life that is very special to you, yet you have lost some of the deep connection that you used to have.
Conscious acts of love can be very powerful in bringing you closer to the special people in your life. These are things that you do to express love to someone else. It is not part of a routine or habit, and it goes beyond just saying "I love you."
A conscious act of love is deliberate. It is usually a very small act, although it often does not feel small when you are doing it. It holds significance. When you do a conscious act of love, you call no attention to it - in fact you often do it secretly. It should be sincere and have a very powerful meaning for you.

Life happens at such a fast pace nowadays. We often have so much going on that we don't take the time to make our lives simpler.
The problem is that we often don't know where to start making our lives less complicated. The more we do, the more stressed we become, which in turn can complicate our lives even more.
It takes courage to change, but it will be worth it. Here are 7 quick and easy ways to help you live a more simple and enjoyable life.

I've always admired the people in my life that always seem to have a clean, clear, beautiful, and well organized home. Before I got well on my way to clearing my own home, my thoughts were a little envious that they "had" some inherent trait or talent that I simply lacked.
As I've begun filling boxes of things to give away, donate, or throw away, I've also begun learning. And learning. If you've followed the clutter-clearing articles on the Simple Life site and on the blog, you will notice that I've been sharing what I'm learning.
It's funny that it took me until now to realize that staying organized and keeping my home the way I want it to be is really a skill. It's not some elusive talent that some have and some don't have. It's simply a set of habits that are practiced to the point that the skills develop.
The skills are what surprise me. .... continue reading
