I've been taking little steps to simplify my life. Actually, I've taken some big ones as well. I moved from California to Florida with the intention of simplifying my life. It is working. Florida is home and my head is clear here.
One recent conscious step is watching less TV. Normally, we'd always have the TV on in the background of life at home. Not any more. My husband and I are both involved in different creative endeavours and either working in silence or listening to music. I love how music can create various atmospheres in your home.
Watching less TV has simplified my life by removing unnecessary distractions. I'm no longer using TV to escape. Instead, I am utilizing the time I have in the evenings to be creative, inspired and connected to my family. It is a simple way to live and I love it.
Happy Monday. Embrace the beauty of living a simple life.
