The Simpler Life

The “simple life” is a common phrase but is there such a thing? When defining the words, it’s easy to understand the challenge that comes with pairing them together. Simple (easily understood and presenting no difficulty) + life (existence, being, living). Let's rephrase the quote to say, "The simpler life." Creating a simpler life is a more attainable and worthy goal.

The day ahead

For example, the morning routine of waking up and preparing for each day. It might not be easy, but preparing the night before by selecting clothes, setting up the coffee maker and having breakfast or lunch ready to go, the basics start to fall into place. Consider setting the alarm for 15 minutes earlier than usual and use that time to enjoy a cup of coffee before the day begins.

Mealtimes and more

Plan for meals. Create a shopping list based on meals that can be pulled together easily. Consider preparing meal components that can be brought together in different ways throughout the week. This approach often requires some preparation once the groceries are purchased. You may bake or saute some chicken or chop and roast vegetables in large batches. The benefit is that you won’t have to start from scratch with each meal. Set up a crockpot meal and let it cook all day or utilize an air fryer or pressure cooker to prepare a meal quickly. Cook double portions so that you have leftovers or components to in stock the freezer.

Introducing organizational habits and weekly plans takes time and dedication but developing ways to make life simpler is worth the time investment.
