I wish life was simpler.
This is something I’ve said to myself many times before and I’m sure you have too.
Feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and unmotivated is often a product of our own doing. We try to do too much, too fast, and too soon.
Most of us are consumed by too many commitments and responsibilities that it can often feel difficult to breathe. The balancing act that we’re trying to master is nearly impossible. I liken it to being on a teeter-totter with nobody on the other side. You’re constantly having to run from one end of it to the other as fast as you can in order to feel balanced.
- Civic obligations
- Family & Friends
- Hobbies & Leisure time
- Significant others
- Side work or projects
These are just a few things that take up some of your time, energy, and focus. Being happy and content with everything can be a tall task to tackle (say that three times fast, what a tongue twister).
The quest to simplify my life led me to a book by Mr. Zen Habits himself, Leo Babauta. The book is called “The Power of Less” and it’s the 4th book in the LimitlessBOOK Club.
I want to share with you some of the strategies Leo covers in his book so that you can simplify your life, have more energy, and be more productive. I’ve also added a few of my own tweaks to emphasize health and fitness.
I’ve got to say that this book really changed my thinking and definitely influenced the direction I plan to take Limitless365 and live my life in general.
Ok, lets simplify!
