Throughout the past few years, I’ve been moving towards a more simple life. I’m seeking less chaos, less clutter, less shopping, less spending, you get it – I want less so that I can have more of what really matters.
More freedom, more mental space, more peace, more time.
But that last one is interesting. What if simplifying leads us to do things…that take up more time?
How simple can get complicated
For starters, let’s make it clear: I don’t have any more hours in the day now than I did three years ago. None of us do.
But I have found myself allocating those hours so differently these days, and not in ways you might expect.
I clean more often (although it takes less time), I prepare food constantly (or at least it feels like I do), and I spend more time planning days than I have ever done before.
