Are You Maintaining?

How do you know you need to simplify your life? It’s when you can’t maintain your current life.

If you have so much stuff or such a big house that you don’t have enough time to clean and organize it regularly, it may be time to let go of some things.

If you don’t have enough time to eat correctly, exercise and sleep, you are not taking care of your body. And that can only go so long before things quit working correctly. If this is the case, it may be time to let go of certain commitments.

If you can’t maintain your most important personal relationships, what can you let go of?

Think about what you have in your life that you need to maintain so you are taken care to keep in good condition.

  • Job
  • Health
  • Relationships
  • Spiritual Life
  • Home
  • Car
  • Technology
  • Website/Internet Identity
  • Clothes
  • Bank Account
  • Belongings

How can you simplify these things so your highest priorities are maintained?

1 car instead of 2. Working less hours. Working closer to home. Keeping technology that you know how to use longer, even when something "newer and better" comes along. Consolidating bank accounts and setting up automatic bill paying. Trade gym membership for walking close to home and free weights to your favorite TV programs. Declutter. Give yourself an online limit. Give yourself the first 15 min of every day to nurturing your spiritual life.

The less in your life, the easier it can be maintained. What can you do?
