Spring signifies freshness and being reborn. Learn how to let things go and check out these 5 ways to simplify your life this spring.
It is no secret that Spring gets us in the mood for simpler times. Simplifying during the spring season is a great way to lighten your load, freshen up your home, and make more time in your life. But where do you even start? Take a peek below at 5 ways to Simplify Your Life this spring so you can create more time and peace in your life!
5 Ways to Simplify Your Life this Spring
1. Start shredding.
Invest in an inexpensive paper shredder and start shredding away old bills and paper items you don’t have a use for anymore. You can also get rid of old newspaper and magazines taking up space. These items can go to your local recycling center or even be used as mulching material.
2. Say no. Twice.
Practice saying no two times per week. When someone asks you to do something such as help out at the school bake sale or watch their child, say you are on a time constraint and can’t do it this week. It feels quite hard at first, but you will quickly feel freer with the unloading of these extra obligations.
3. Make one pot meals.
Instead of three or four-course meals at dinner time, try a one, one-pot meal a week. This can be any soup or stew, or even a large salad with all of the fixings. Throw everything into one pot, add some bread, and call it a meal. There will be less prep, fewer dishes, and less clean up. You can find some great Crock Pot Recipes at MomsWithCrockPots.com
4. Get natural.
Find ways to be more natural in your home. This can mean using cloth products instead of paper or using vinegar and water instead of pricey cleaning supplies. You will save time, save money, and save the planet! You can find some excellent household cleaning recipes right here on A Few Short Cuts
5. Get back to nature.
Use the freebies that nature provides to entertain your family. Enjoy parks, local gardens, bird watching, and other free outdoor activities to pass the time and get some fresh air!
