Now, I have to say, I'm pretty good at this already. I try to do as many little things to make my everyday as simple as possible, but there are always new ways to improve - as I was reminded by Kristin over at As Luck Would Have It.
For Kristin, this project is about simplifying her wardrobe, workspace, food, beauty routine and health.
For me, it's about simplifying my downtime. To do that, my plan is to cut down on my interwebs usage. I've decided, in an effort to simplify and de-stressify my life, I'm going to do things that don't revolve around a screen and a keyboard. So instead of coming home from work, eating dinner and spending the rest of the night refreshing my Twitter feed, I'm going to come home, eat dinner and head out into my brand new garden. Or, I'm going to come home, eat dinner and read a book on my patio with a cup of tea. Or, I'm going to come home, eat dinner and then go for a hike or a walk or a bike ride.
(Motivating words to keep me on track!)
My brain needs it. My body needs it. My soul needs it. And my computer, which is currently suffering from some sort of disease brought on by me being a total technophobe, it needs it too.
So, wish me luck and be sure to check out what all of the other simplifiers are up to. And if you're in need of some simplification, join the project. The more the merrier!
**Proof that I'm trying: I'm spending my first weekend with limited computer time hitting up a bike auction (fingers crossed I find one!), going for a dip in the hot springs, fishing, seeing Fred Eaglesmith perform and, if I have time, tilling my garden. Not a bad first effort, right?
