Take a look at your life, your home, your belongings. Strip them down gradually to the essentials: food, water, shelter, fresh air, love, movement, time with loved ones.
Rethink everything that prevents movement: furniture, clutter, tight clothes, accessories and shoes, car, chairs, smartphones, computers. We accumulate so much stuff over the years. They can really weigh you down and keep you stuck. I have been removing them bit by bit at my own pace in a way that makes sense to me.
You will find below some of the steps I have taken to simplify my life. See if they resonate with yo. and if you fancy doing something similar.
sitting on the floor, not the couch
choosing to walk everywhere possible
walking as a daily family activity
Before you know it, the children will ask when the next walk is or even go on their own or with their friends!
getting away from social media
I used to have a Twitter account - deleted. I used to have an Instagram account, which I deleted, then started another, from which I've taken a long break. My Facebook account is my next move. That's it - I have just deleted Facebook.
I met many lovely people on Facebook and was able to keep in touch too. However, something doesn't work for me. Perhaps it's a little too addictive, taking too much space and eating up too much time.
I have had several Facebook breaks over the last couple of years. This time, it's permanent.
My focus will be on providing a massage and movement therapy service and supporting my clients. A radical move to create more space, time, energy and opportunity for movement.
