Lately I have found the pace of life getting faster and faster. Work life slowly creeps into family/personal time and before you know it - it all feels blended together. Time for what matters most seems to have diminished and our minds are so cluttered with stuff, work and to-do lists. Has it always been this way ? Is it my age catching up with me? How do you turn off the outside world and all the noise and distractions that goes with it to actually give your brain the rest it needs. I know vacations are suppose to do that, however most of my "vacations" seem to be spent either planning an event, doing for others, or completing that long list of chores/house projects that need to get done but haven't had time while working, which has left no "down time" to regenerate one's self.
I am reading a great book right now call the Joy of Less by Francine Jay. To get the full benefit it's not a book you'll want to race through, which is a good thing, as these days my mind seems to wander after a few pages and I don't know what I've read. In order to make any real changes, taking the ideas in this book one step at a time will help with lasting changes. I have read many books about simplifying but this one has alot of practical and easy steps in all areas of one's life. From decluttering your home, room by room, finding free time in your day, for a more streamlined, simpler and serene life.
My blog page has changed. It was beginning to get too busy looking and cluttered/distracting for me so have chosen a simply more serene looking page, one that is to fit my lifestyle a little better.
