Break free from the bustle and breakthrough with a season of simple. Simplify your life.

This year has been absolutely crazy.

So, many highs. So, many lows.

Look within. Self-reflect this year. Consider a challenge for yourself to cut out the excess. Overcome the noise. Simplify your life. Wait patiently and see what happens next.

12 Quick Tips to Making It Possible

1. Stop multitasking.

Focus on one thing at a time. Excessive switching inflates the need of another dopamine hit.

“You can do two things at once, but you can’t focus effectively on two things at once.”

Gary Keller

2. Get there ten minutes early.

Avoid the confusion and hassle of arriving late. Enjoy a fresh cup of peace with the few minutes early. Smile.

Punctuality is the first step towards success.


3. Write things down.

Organize your thoughts, and keep a list of tasks you need to complete. A notepad has a better memory than your brain. A write note also reduces strain on the mind because it trusts the notepad to remember. Perfect before bed.

“You have to make your own condensed notes. You learn from MAKING them.”

Peter Rogers

4. Meditate.

Simply breathe… more… deeper.

“As gold purified in a furnace loses its impurities and achieves its own true nature, the mind gets rid of the impurities of the attributes of delusion, attachment and purity through meditation and attains Reality.”

Adi Shankara

5. Enjoy the simple pleasures.
