Living simply has a lot to do with giving yourself permission to say “no”. It means freeing ourselves from commitments and obligations that complicate life or interfere with what we really want to do. Identify one or two things or events that burden you and simply let it go…

By wanting – and sometimes, doing – less, we create more space for the things that really matter.

Follow my blog over the next 10 weeks for 10 different “recipes for simplicity” and see if you can simplify your life and be happier and more fulfilled in the process 🙂

Eighth “recipe” – Connect with a sense of spirit in your life, whether through prayer, religious services, journal writing, meditation, or spiritually related reading. Simplicity leads to spirituality and spirituality leads to simplicity. Cultivate a practice of silence and solitude, even if for just 15 to 30 minutes a day. Your spirituality will evolve naturally 🙂
