“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Simplicity makes simpler our life, containing the magnitude of our desires in the form of “possessions, outward success, luxury, greed, anger, which keep on multiplying- for all of us these have always been critical. I believe that a simple and modest manner of life is best for everyone, best for both the body and the mind.” Recognize the difference between things you need and things you want. Simplicity is a value which is in decline due to the modernization of our life. It seems our culture bombards us with accomplishments about material things that will make our lives better. But the reality is that most of these things will disorder our lives without bringing true happiness. Free yourself from the schemes of excess and learn to be content with fewer possessions and greater simplicity. Simplicity enables us in our search for ease, joy, and happiness.

A simple life has a different meaning and a different value for every person. You don’t need to make a courageousness improve your life, as there are many simple changes you can make at any time. To be happy, healthy and at harmony, you do not require a lot of money or time – just a little desire and reason.

Simplicity is the state or quality of being simple. Something which is easy to understand or explain is simple, in contrast to something complicated. Life isn’t an easy thing to figure out. It’s full of surprises, challenges, twists, and now and then we just need a little direction. There can be no step-by-step guide to simplifying your life, but everyone can gather an incomplete list of ideas that should help anyone trying to find the simple life. Not every tip will work for every one of you — choose the ones that appeal and apply to your life. However, getting to simplicity isn’t always a simple process. It’s a voyage, not a destination, and it means getting rid of many of the things you do so you can spend time with people you love and do the things you love. It means getting rid of the clutter, so you are left with only that which gives you responsibility.

Don’t always buy a thing you just want. Instead, purchase the things you need. If you are a slave to acquisitiveness and consumerism, there are ways to escape it. If you can escape acquisitiveness, you can get into the habit of buying less. And that will mean less stuff, less spending, less muddled. Learn what “sufficient” is. Our materialistic society today is about getting more and more, with no end in sight. Sure, you can get the latest device, and more wears and shoes. But when will you have sufficient? Most people don’t know, and thus they keep buying more. It’s a never ending cycle. Get off the cycle by figuring out how much is sufficient. And then stop when you get there.

Many times we live with unintentional, complicated systems in our lives because we haven’t given them much thought. Find a creative outlet for self-expression. Whether that’s writing, poetry, painting, designing websites, dance, whatever. Focus on the essential tasks and eliminate the rest. Instead of having half a dozen goals or more, simplify it to one goal. Not only will this make you less stressed, but it will also make you more successful. You’ll be able to focus on that One Goal and give it all of your energy. That gives you much better chances for success.

You can practice being in the moment at any time during the day. The key methods of being present include paying attention instead of imagining, observing what is going on around you, doing yoga and meditating. Living here and now, at the moment, keeps you aware of life, of what is going on around you and within you. It does wonders for your stability, but it is found that spending a little time with your inner self-creates a peaceful simplicity rather than a chaotic confusion. This could be time praying / reciting Mantra’s or communing with God, or time spent meditating or doing yoga or getting to know yourself, or time spent in nature. However, you do it, working on your inner self is worth the time.

When relating with nature is a desire, not a routine. Getting outside for fresh air daily is not only good for your health, but it may also help to simplify your life. It gives you the opportunity to walk, drive a bike, and move your limbs in a clean and fresh atmosphere, a natural way to keep fit. Connect with the earth by walking barefoot, resting in the grass, looking up at the sky and by allowing yourself to feel small in the infinite universe.

A life lived slowly is a life well lived. When we rush we miss relations, we miss the flowers in blossom, and we miss moments that will fly right by. Slow down! Life is not a competition. There is no competition; there is no need to whiz by. There is, however, a need to enjoy the realities, to smile at the clouds and have the ability to wait. Patience is an esteemed virtue that we can all strive for. Create time for solitude. In addition to slowing down and enjoying the tasks we do, and doing less of them, it’s also important to just have some time to yourself.

Life will never be perfect, no matter how hard you try. Even if you pour your heart and soul into it, you will never have that perfection you seek. There will always be broken hearts; there will always be periods where nothing happens entirely. But you must accept and learn that even the most imperfect things will always be made the perfect with love, laughter, and pure lives.

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”
