Calm + Bright - Day 2

 

Embracing Simplicity

Simplicity looks different to each of us and changes throughout the various seasons of our lives. 

But whatever our lives may currently look like, it is profound the difference it can make to our days when we begin to look at situations through the lens of simplicity.

And what better time to seek simplicity than during the busy festive season?

Embracing simplicity can be as easy as asking yourself throughout your day: 

'can I simplify this?'
or
'am I overcomplicating this?'

 

Of course, there is busy-ness that is realistically unavoidable during the festive season (and every season) but we can seek to not overcomplicate these things that do need to be done. 

Tradition can be a comforting and bolstering part of our festive season but we needn't be afraid to change things up a little if those traditions cause stress and pressure.

Whether it is having conversations with family or friends about alternatives to gifts or a kris kringle style set-up if present buying is spiralling out of control, simplifying gatherings by getting everyone to pitch in or just not trying to cram in an unrealistic amount of things into our days.

How can you embrace simplicity today?
