Recipe for Simplicity

Ten suggestions to simplify your life:
  1. Don't let any material thing come into your home unless you absolutely love it and want to keep it until it is beyond repair.
  2. Live in a home with only those rooms that you or someone in your family use every day.
  3. Limit your work (outside of the home) to 30 hours a week, 20 if you are a parent.
  4. Select a home and place of employment no more than 30 minutes away from each other.
  5. Limit your children's extracurricular activities to one to three a week, depending on age.
  6. Take three to four months off every few years and go live in a foreign country.
  7. Spend at least an hour a week in a natural setting, away from crowds of people, traffic, and buildings.
  8. Do whatever you need to do to connect with a sense of spirit in your life.
  9. Seek the support of others who want to simplify their lives.
  10. Practice saying no.
