Simplify Your Life With These Easy Tips!

It doesn’t have to be complicated, take hours of your time, or years of counseling to create a simple carefree life! Making small, simple daily changes and adding them into the nooks and crannies of your day can really add up big! We are all busy, but why wait to live the life you dream about, deserve, and desire? Here are some simple tips to get you on your way!


Change your expectations

Just say no to taking on extra “stuff” that doesn’t nourish your soul.

Trust your intuition!

Learn to meditate-even 5 minutes can clear & refresh your mind.

Laugh out loud, it just feels good!

Bed time ritual, create your own! Prepare to sleep well.

Early to bed, early to rise… you know the saying, & I’ve found it to be true!

Get up earlier. Start with just 15 or 30 minutes, eventually try to work up to an hour. It’s like creating free time, just for you!

Pack a cooler-ditch the drive thru. This will save you money, and your body will thank you!

Drink lots of water. Make it your beverage of choice.

Try a new hobby- how about the new adult coloring books? They are super fun and relaxing too…

Turn off the TV, grab a book, puzzle or board game instead.

Simplify your wardrobe, less is really more. Life is too short to wear clothes you don’t love!

Move to a smaller home, Need a Realtor? I know a good one!

Declutter your environment and watch your stress disappear.

Be present in the moment, it is truly all we really know for sure!

Try journal writing. I teach a whole workshop just on this alone. It is a very powerful tool!image

Kicking Fear!

Fear is something we often feel but don’t always express openly. It often manifests itself as something else like anxiety and stress, procrastination, addictions to food or alcohol or, even getting lost in hours upon hours of mindless television. What is it that you really want but are fearful of pursuing? A new job? A committed relationship? How about tackling a triathlon or running your first 5K or Marathon? Fear of failure and of “not being good enough” robs us of so many opportunities.

Here are a few strategies that I personally have found to be helpful.

When fear really has me paralyzed I try to imagine myself hanging over the cliff holding on for dear life. I hold on as long as I can, my fingers are slipping I know I have to let go… I take a deep breath, count 1, 2, 3 and release! The free fall is like nothing you can imagine but only for a while. You begin to relax as the fear turns to power. Yes, there are often several twists and turns. Some anticipated, some completely spontaneous…

Then you suddenly realize… Damn, I should have done this sooner!

The power of visualization is amazing! Anything you can imagine is real, whether it is good or bad. When fear is holding me back I imagine what it is I am trying to do. I literally do it hundreds of times in my head until it feels as though I have already achieved it! I try to feel the way I might feel once I conquer my fear and that feeling paired with visualization drives me forward!

Knowing that there is no right way to do absolutely everything takes some of the pressure off being “perfect.” I was always fearful of failing but there really is no failing, self-discovery, and lessons along the way are always benefits of trying and going after what you want! Walking away from your dreams? Now that is fear. When your life comes to an end make sure you have left nothing to make you have to say “I wish I had…”

So go ahead get out there! One thing is certain if you don’t even try you have already been defeated by your potential worst enemy, yourself! So be your own cheerleader you truly possess all you need already within yourself.

Your time to sparkle is now!
