Simple Living Tips
For tasks that are difficult, break them down
into segments, or manageable tasks. Don't let anything "overwhelm" you.
The more items you purchase, the more things you have to take care of and
maintain. Be sure that you buy only what you need and use.
Do not fill your homes and lives with things
you do not need. They just get in the way of enjoying that which serves
you and makes you happy.
Be prepared for the emergencies that can happen to your
family and in your area, and you will sleep better at night. That includes
having an emergency fund of money in case you lose your job.
Learn to be grateful for
what you have, and don't think of what you don't make comparisons to other
When you need help, ask for it.
Turn to family and friends when needed, and be willing and ready to help them
through hard times.
Life insurance premiums are at an all time low. This
is due to several reasons, including women having their own jobs, and the high
divorce rate. Take advantage of these low rates and protect your family. Buy
Term life insurance. It is the most economical way to protect your family. Get
it while you are young. Things happen when you get older- and you may become
uninsurable. Life is more peaceful when you don't have to worry about the future
of your loved ones.
Periodically review your life,
your goals, and how you spend you time. Make sure you are on the right road, and
going in the right direction to a destination you want to reach.
Set a goal of doing at least one thing each day that you
don't like to do....but need to do. If you tackle just one of these tasks each
day, you will have a great feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. It
will make the things you do like to do more pleasant, as you don't have the
other things that need to be done nagging at you.
Don't choose to be unhappy
because of lack of material possessions. Start a gratitude journal so you
realize all the good things in your life.
