7 Easy Ways to Simplify Your Life!
Raising little people into what you hope will become outstanding adults in society someday can be a daunting task. But, it can also be an incredibly rewarding, heartwarming, humbling and exciting one. Dare I say, chaotic too. Luckily, you can always find small and easy ways to simplify your life when it gets crazy.
Who doesn’t want life to be just a little easier? Every day seems full of chaos and it’s our job as mom to reel everything back in. Simplifying life helps to bring moments of happiness and peace to our family. The biggest question is…how do we simplify our lives?
Here are 7 easy ways to simplify your life. Whether you are a parent or not, read on to discover how possible achieving simplicity actually is.
Be flexible when possible
I understand the importance of planning things out. However, life happens and things don’t always go according to plan. With that in mind, be flexible. Don’t get upset if something doesn’t go your way.
When I don’t feel like doing something, it makes life just a little harder. Therefore, I find ways to stay motivated. I get a decent night’s sleep, exercise, and find small ways to keep myself motivated.
Have everyone pitch in
As your kids get older, you will notice that they’re able to help a little more and not everything falls on your shoulders. Have the kids and your spouse pitch in, this will really simplify life. Many hands make light work. Plus, you are helping your kids learn life skills by learning to cook, do laundry and clean the house.
Be choosier about where you devote your time
This is one of my favourites. I used to be a person that said yes to everything, but not anymore. I try to be choosier about where we spend our time, which means my life is much simpler. Saying yes isn’t always a bad thing, but I only want to say yes to things I really enjoy.
Instead of keeping a to-do list, keep a list of things that you’ve already accomplished. Use a pretty journal or notebook and you’ll find that this helps in so many ways. You’ll also have record what you’ve done.
Simplify your routine
Getting ready for an hour day can be exhausting. Before you even start your day, you’re exhausted. I have found small ways to simplify my routine for getting ready. As a spokesperson and #SchickAmbassador, I use Schick Intuition for a few reasons. I get that smooth close shave the first time and that makes me happy. Plus, I never have to use shaving gel and that alone saves me a lot of time.
Best of all, it moisturizes my skin and I cut down my morning routine significantly. Over the years, I’ve found ways to simplify my morning routine, you can read the tips, here.
Life is so much simpler when you stay organized. I like to keep things simple by writing them down and keeping events marked in my calendar. Something as simple as keeping a pair of inexpensive scissors in every room can simplify your life.
Same goes towards keeping your house organized. If you take a little time to label things, organize closets, pantries and more, it makes life easier. Even something as simple as keeping a pair of inexpensive scissors in every room can simplify your life.
Communicate with your family members
I have noticed life is much simpler when you know what is going on. Communicate with your kids and spouse, so everyone knows what’s happening. Life is much simpler without the chaos and confusion that non-communication brings.
Creating a family hub or command centre can help everyone stay in communication and up-to-date with important events, projects and chores.
Make Life Simple.
Apart from the time-maximizing reasons why I use Schick Intuition razors, I also love the tantalizing scents they come in. The exotic scent makes you feel like you have been whisked away to a tropical destination and you don’t even need to leave the shower.

Personally, I don’t think shaving has ever been so easy thus life gets easier, right?
Mind = Blown.

Staying motivated is always my problem !
It can be hard! I agree. 🙂
Excellent tips. I think it’s key to stay organized. If you don’t, you spend more time trying to find what you need than you do DOING what you need.
YES. Organization is definitely key!
Awesome tips! I’ll have to check out the Schick Intuition. A: Shaving takes so much time. B: Shaving can hurt. If I can remedy both of those, I”m a happy girl!
That is awesome! It really is a great razor.
I think many of us overbook, over plan, and overlook what’s good for us. Saying yes to less is a great idea.
Yes, it really can help.
All great tips! My favorite is being choosier about where you devote your time! We can’t do everything for everyone all the time and our time is valuable – we have to spend our time where we can be most effective. We also have to take good care of ourselves.
Yes, sometimes we need to delegate and ask for help.
These are all great tips! Staying organized really helps me keep my life simple and stress free. I could still use more work in that department and will remember your tips.
Awesome, hope you can master it.
Being flexible is something I actually learned from my son and his special ed teacher. My son has autism, so he has to try to be flexible everyday to make things go smoother and I think we could all benefit from trying that.
I think it really is. Sometimes, it is the only way to get through the day.
I will duly noted on this. This is a great list. I’ll keep applying this for my everyday lives!
Sweet, I am so glad you can!
Being “choosier about how you spend your time” is the tip that I most need to heed. I have a tendency to take on too many things. Some very nice time management suggestions in this post!
Awesome, hope it helps!
These are absolutely great tips. My biggest thing is organization. I always feel like the more organized than I am the smoother everything seems to go. Thanks for the other great ideas
Yes, so very true!
Organization is key to making my life simple and easier.I like to be able to walk straight to the item I need at hand so everything must have a place in my home and it must be put back there.
I too love these beautiful Intuition razors and would love a chance to try the Island Berry scent.Thanks for the chance.
My pleasure. Yes, it makes finding things easier.
I have been working on being organized and it certainly makes my days easier.
That is awesome! So happy for you!
