4 Super Reasons You Will Love “Easifying” Your Life

Article by Kathy Gates

Are you someone who wants a simpler life, but who associates simplifying with giving away everything you own, and going back to baking your own bread? Unfortunately, that attitude can scare you away from making the simple (pardon the pun) kind of changes that can make your life so much easier, better, and happier. Instead, let’s agree that simplifying means whatever you want it to mean in your own particular life. For me, it means eliminating the stuff around me that I find neither useful nor beautiful, and trust me, other people would not always agree with my definition of useful or beautiful. However, it also means setting up systems to make sure that I have easier ways to handle some age-old problems in the future. To me, simplifying means “ease-i-fying” (ok, so there’s no such word, but maybe there should be!). Easifying defined would be, “minimum effort for maximum pleasure:” Easifying simply looks at the problems of everyday life, then poses creative – easifying – solutions. Here are 4 super reasons that you will love easifying your life. 1. Less Stuff, Fewer Problems: With less stuff cluttering up your life the benefits are easy to see. You’ll have less stuff to clean, (yippee!), less stuff to have repaired (more cash flow!), less stuff to dispose of (environmentally good!), and less stuff to find (halleluiah!) Just pick one room in your house and look around it. How much of that stuff are you really enjoying and getting use from? How much of it is an aggravation for cleaning, repairing, losing, fixing, disposing of, etc.? I’ll bet you a paycheck (not really!) that it’s at least 75/25.2. Less Effort, More Energy You’ll have less fear and worry associated with carrying around a lot of stuff. It will simply require less effort. By simply combining things into one (aerobics and weightlifting at the same time), by setting up a system to do the work for you (a bill paying system), by eliminating a task altogether (delegate it to someone else), you’ll be calmer, not stressed with the day to day logistics of stuff. An example I love to use is the freedom that comes from not smoking. It’s not the freedom from the habit that most people notice first. It’s the no more worrying about having enough cigarettes, no more fears of not being able to find a lighter. You’ll feel more in control of your time, your space, your energy. 3. Less Baggage, Better Relationships: “Stuff” refers to not only material things, but mental and emotional clutter as well. By cleaning out the needto, haveto, and oughtos, of your own life, you’ll have better relationships because there’s not as much “stuff” in your life to fight about. Put the past in the past by returning anything you borrowed, by apologizing to whoever you need to, by getting your bills up to date, by sending the card or gift you forgot to send, by making the phone call you need to make. You get the idea. Anything that you “should” have done, but neglected to, has you Tied To The Past. 4. More FUN! Having an easified/simplified life means having more time for the things you dream of like reading, or traveling, or entertaining, or exercising, or playing with the kids, or visiting with friends. You’ll feel more in control because the clutter — physical, emotional, and mental — will no longer dictate how your space is arranged, or how your time is spent (looking for things), or how your energy is used (frustration, aggravation). Need I say more?
