I’ve decluttered my house once before, but it’s due for another round. It always seems to take so long, or like laundry, it’s never a done deal. When I think of the word simplify, decluttering comes to mind. Yet, to simplify is so much more than this. In the book, The Rewards of Simplicity, I discovered just how one can simplify their life. Simplification can include physical, spiritual, and emotional clutter (also known as distractions). Although, I don’t agree with everything written in this book, I do find a big chunk of it very helpful to my need to simplify.
Topics included in the book that I personally found beneficial include:
- Taking the Sabbath off from normal work or duties.
- Handling and reducing physical clutter.
- Fasting from t.v., internet, or those so-called time-saving devices we have that seem to consume a big part of one’s time.
- Evaluating one’s priorities, time and energy. (A checklist of thought-provoking questions is included.)
- Breaking down anxiety.
- Most importantly, getting one’s focus on God.
Here’s more information on the book.
