This article is an introduction to simple living and the simple living article category.
This lifestyle is not just about simplifying your life. It’s also about being more efficient and productive. By being more efficient, you decrease your stress and increase your productivity, which will reward you with more time and energy to focus on things of importance to you.
Some of the ways to create a simpler life involve utilizing technology and some of them involve eliminating or limiting their use. For example, Internet technology can be used in a myriad of ways to simplify your life whereas television technology cannot. In fact, television advertisements and program storylines can persuade you into doing things that will complicate your life. Therefore, its use should be limited.
I find it interesting to think about all the pressure that we put on ourselves to make enough money during our career so that we can retire and live the simple life. Why wait and waste all those years in between. A simple life is something that you can create right now!
