"Be simpler!": 10 easy and effective ways to simplify your lifePictolic
Everything brilliant is simple. We tell you about ten working and effective ways to simplify your life…
As the character of the famous film said, "To live is good, and to live well is even better!". But for some reason, most people tend to complicate everything, come up with problems out of the blue, worry about trifles, do things they don't like for years…
But life is a cool thing, anyway! It is only important to be able to simplify it, get rid of excess and free up resources for what is really important. Here are ten working methods that will help you with this.
There is such a thing as a "toxic environment". These are people who create unnecessary drama, constantly talk about how difficult it is for them to live, and in general "what an unfair life", they are always discussing others, criticizing and insulting. So, you and these people are not on the way. Communication with them will not lead to anything good. Naturally, you yourself should also get rid of the habit of dramatizing and complaining.
Don't try to be good for everyone. There will always be a person who doesn't like you anyway. And this is not a reason to get upset. So, this is not your person. There is no need to be friends with everyone, because the main thing is not quantity, but quality. It is better to have one or two sincere, reliable people around than to constantly try to "earn" the friendship of those who do not appreciate you.
Perfectionism can only be good in pictures. In real life, this is still evil! Very often perfectionists turn even a minor obstacle into a disaster. After all, they try to do everything perfectly, and when it doesn't work out, they try again and again. The pursuit of perfection takes a lot of strength and energy, although it is often unnecessary. Let things not be perfect, but just good.
The organization of space and life in general make it really easier. When you have everything clearly scheduled, you do not need to think about what to do, when and how. You don't get distracted by thinking about it, but just follow the plan. And you can plan everything - from work to rest. At first it may seem that planning is boring, but believe me, you will soon appreciate the result!
By the way, about the result. The result of your activity is much more important than the activity itself. In other words, what matters is not how long you worked, but how much you managed to do during that time. When you start work or household chores, try to be as productive as possible, do not get distracted and do not disperse attention. Soon you will notice that in this way much less time is spent on work (or other occupation), while the result is much better.
This rule applies both to work and to everyday life. Try to focus less on trifles and spend internal resources only on what is really important. The Buddha also said: "If you have a problem, try to solve it. If you can't solve it, then don't make a problem out of it."
With the spread of social networks, more and more people suffer from low self-esteem. The reason for this is comparing yourself with others - more successful, beautiful, slim, rich ... Naturally, this is followed by self-reflection, stress and dissatisfaction with life. But don't forget that every person is unique, everyone has their own way, their own strengths and weaknesses. And we usually compare our worst qualities with someone else's best.
Besides, you never know what's behind a beautiful picture on Instagram. More recently, we published candid confessions of girls who edit their selfies beyond recognition. It got to the point that when men met them, they were so disappointed in "reality" that they simply turned around and left.
Work, cooking, household chores… We get tired of this routine enough as it is. And then there's the house cleaning, which is always annoying and exhausting. However, if the tasks are organized correctly and time is allocated, cleaning can take place without stress. When you don't have to worry about dirty dishes, scattered things, dust on surfaces, you have the strength and desire to do other, more important things. There is no doubt that cleanliness in the house makes our thoughts "clean" as well.
Cleaning allows you to pay attention to how many extra things we keep at home. Clothes that have been hanging around in closets for years, dishes with chips, old shoes, broken children's toys… This is only a small part of the things that can be disposed of, since they do not play any role. Determine the minimum required for a comfortable and happy life, and try to stick to it. Remember that it is not quantity that matters, but quality.
The past is necessary in order to learn from your mistakes. But in no case do not "drag" them with you throughout your life. This period of time has been and has passed, it makes no sense to yearn for it, regret it or dream of changing something. Now you are at a new stage, and your future life depends on how well you will live it. The present and the future are what really matters. The past must be left in the past.
