Tips and Tools for maintaining a simpler life
For the past few years, many of us have been on the 'go, go, go, get, get, get' treadmill – and 'having it all' has often simply meant 'doing it all.'
But now outside events have forced some of us to pause and ask: Is more better? Is busy is best? Is it all worth it - or is there a simpler, more satisfying way to live?
What happened to the dreams and ambitions that once inspired us, filling us with excitement and happiness? At work and at home we've been so carried away with doing, having and achieving more, that we've left ourselves no time to stop and check on where we're heading and why we're going there. We've lost touch with what it is that gives our lives meaning, nurtures our unique talents and brings us true fulfilment.
Maybe it's time to reconnect and to become reacquainted with our authentic selves.
