One of my favorite sayings. Simplify. Makes my life much easier to manage when I clear out the unnecessary stuff.
I try to focus on essentials. Everyone has a different set of them, but mine are important to me. What is necessary for my well-being every day? Food, exercise, rest, some human contact, some kind of work—in an office, in the garden, on my computer, shopping, cleaning.
If I start to feel overwhelmed, then I’m doing too much.
Back to basics. Simplify.
And the world will keep turning.
