Less is more.
I slow down. I stop and take a few deep breaths when I am feeling rushed. I schedule breaks throughout the day. I use my vacation time.
I shorten my to-do list. I identify my top priorities. I devote my time and energy to the activities that are meaningful to me.
I clear away clutter. I sell or donate possessions that I rarely use. I keep my home and office tidy. I designate a place for each object and keep it there.
I work smarter. I do one thing at a time. I batch similar tasks together. I learn to delegate.
I create routines that remind me to live mindfully. I reflect and pray each morning and evening. I sit down to eat. I listen to my body. I spend time with my loved ones. I focus on the present moment.
I turn off my devices for at least an hour each day. I read before bed instead of watching TV. I put my phone away when I am driving or eating dinner with my family.
I consume less. I value quality more than quantity. I grow my own flowers and vegetables. I cook at home instead of ordering takeout. I walk or ride my bike to work. I shop less often and give myself time to think before making major purchases.
Today, I am content with what I have. I focus on the essentials. My life is simple and rewarding.
