LIFE: Handle with CARE


The tendency of life in our society, has become more complicated: Internet, television, shopping, work, family commitments, possessions, eating, debt, .... meetings and celebrations!! These things pile on top of each other endlessly.

Our days have a limited capacity, and we can only do a little much, handling so many tasks and possessions and social commitments, together can be pretty tedious, but then we set limits for our self, two days for assignments and four days for filing and stuff... those limits means we stressed out till our breaking points.

It takes a bit of conscious effort to simplify things, but it’s one of the greatest things that anyone should master to enjoy ‘life’.

Simplify everything... That might sound hard, but with practice it’s actually fairly easy, and leads to a quiet, content, lovely life full of space for so many things you can do and live to the hilt.

So how do you simplify your life?

1.Get rid off virtual world for at least 2 hours in a day...
The Internet and cell phones are  amazing, but always being connected means you’re always pulled in a thousand directions at once. It’s hard to focus, hard to connect with others, hard to get out into nature and be active. So schedule some time every day for disconnection: maybe a block in the morning where you'll spend time with nature may be during a quick morning walk, and a block in the evening when you need a little amount of  rest after the whole day work out!! Give yourself a little time every day :)


2. Make yourself free from unnecessary commitments...
List your commitments, and eliminate some or at least postpone! It’s a simple matter of making a call or sending an email explaining that you can’t do the commitment. Trust me, they’ll find a way to live without you.

You’ll start to free up time for what’s more important to you.

3.Start to share possessions...
Find 5 things in a week or two to donate or give to friends. Or clear an entire shelf or counter-top, leaving only the things you actually use, getting rid of the rest. Slowly your possessions will be simplified to just the essentials.



4.Ban unnecessary shopping...
You can do this (trust me being a girl its not easy for me either). Don’t buy anything except the essential. If you think you really need it, put it on a list to be evaluated after a few days. Rush shopping is devil's shopping ;) :p

5.Pause before moving to the next...
When you’re done with anything, get in the habit of pausing before moving onto the next thing, For example, ... Put your clothes where they belong. Put your keys in one spot.
Clean the sink before you leave it. This simple habit will keep you organized and systematic.


6.Effective time management...
What’s most important to you??  Reading novels? Cooking, gardening, crafts, carpentry? Make time for anything you love..
.
7.Get outdoors once a day...
Too often we are stuck at a desk or on the couch. Go outside, take a walk, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine (or rain or fog depends upon the weather).. Play some sports.. These simple activities will change your life.

 :) :) Smile :) :)
(I don't want to number this activity... this you should practice all day long)
Be pleasant. If you want to enjoy the life, one has to be approachable and amiable. Give smile and they'll give you back! Enjoy the show of life!!


Life is a journey. It has to be fun filled to be fulfilled. So, make it simple to experience a wonderful journey.
