I read a post today that really resonated with me, and maybe it will with you too. The author had tried many different things to organize and simplify life, and feels what she has done up to now hasn’t really worked out for her. She knows there is something out there that will work for her, but hasn’t quite found it yet.
Man, do I know how she feels. I commented on her post, and I wanted to elaborate here.
I wanted to give you some insight to when it might be time for you to do one in your own life, home, business, home office, etc. You might need a Simplicity Sweep if:
- you are getting that “heavy feeling.” Ever feel overwhelmed, tired and not know why? Your body and spirit weigh down your shoulders.
- you feel overwhelmed. You look at your schedule for the day and think, man, how did it get like this.
- you feel anxious, you don’t feel good and don’t know why. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate and get back to what really matters.
- you can’t seem to “get it all done.” It feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day, and you know that if you just had a few more you could get it all done. (Reality check: Not gonna happen.)
All of these things can signal that it’s time to do something. Simplicity can be a state of mind, but it’s also an action, a verb. It’s something you do consciously. Living consciously helps you see clearly, and simplicity can be part of that bigger picture.
