What are your every day, must-reads, online or off?
I’ve never read the bible from cover to cover, so I am doing that this year, a little bit every day. There is nothing else that I read every day.
You help your clients simplify their lives. What are three really easy things we can all do to make our lives more simple?
1. Stop “checking in” – Checking Email, Facebook or other digital communication without taking action is just added distraction and mental clutter. Open email when you are ready to thoughtfully respond.
2. Develop a morning routine that doesn’t include phones, computers or ithings. Start your day with intention instead of plugging in.
3. Dress with less. Identify a few core items in your wardrobe and develop a simple style instead of keeping up with trends.
How will simplicity affect one’s life?
Simplicity will affect people differently but some common benefits include: more time, more space, clarity to identify what really matters. Simplicity in my life has provided all of those things along with ability to do work I love and the ability to engage in meaningful conversations with people I love instead of feeling distracted or scattered.
If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say?
You don’t need to buy one more thing to be happy and there is nothing you can buy that will deliver long term happiness. You have enough. You are enough.
Your perfect day. What would it look like?
I enjoy lots of perfect days lately and they include spending time with people I love, getting outside to hike or onto a yoga mat, making time to write and create and working with awesome, caring, creative people.
Thanks so much for sharing, Courtney!
