How do you get rid of stress and anxiety? There are many things that you can do to ease the difficulties of day-to-day life. People often get so caught up in adding to their life, that they forget that it’s equally important to remove and leave space for good things to come.

The best thing you can do to have a more comfortable and stress-free life is often the hardest to understand and can be summed up in one word: simplicity

In an era that offers us so many choices, it’s easy to get lost in diversity and experimentation. 

However, this freedom of choice can become tiresome when you need to make endless important or trivial decisions. It would be unwise to oversimplify things and make rash decisions regarding the things that are important to you.

Of course, not all energy is spent wisely. You might find yourself placing too much importance on trivial matters that don’t bring you any joy and rob you of your energy.

Simplicity (or minimalism) doesn’t mean giving up all that you have, but rather filling your life with people, activities and things that fulfill you. 

It’s about organizing yourself better and having control of your life by not being dominated by external factors and false needs. 

Let’s take a look at five ways in which you can have a simpler and more fulfilled life by avoiding exhaustion:

5 Ways to Simplify Your Life and Avoid Exhaustion

1. Throw away stuff that you no longer need

Being organized and owning fewer things means will lead to fewer distractions and decisions to be made.

Take a look around your house and get rid of anything that you don’t need. 

You will think clearer and you will feel more relaxed.

2. Stop multitasking

A widely known fact, confirmed by scientists and productivity experts alike, is that multitasking is never a good idea. 

Unlike a computer, the human mind can’t efficiently process two cognitive tasks at the same time. 

So, to avoid “frying” your neurons by juggling 10 tasks at the same time, simplify your tasks by breaking them into smaller subtasks

Take things one step at a time and you will be more productive and less exhausted at the end of a workday.

3. Avoid setting unpractical goals

Filter your objectives and keep only the ones that really matter to you

Being ambitious and fighting against your own laziness is admirable, but don’t forget that you are a human being, not a robot

Avoid overworking yourself and be practical regarding how much you can actually get done in the time period you’ve set for yourself.

4. Let go of toxic relationships

People that complain, overly criticize, talk only about their own achievements while refusing to acknowledge yours, are just a couple of examples of people that tend to drain you of your lifeforce

The list can go on, but there is one simple way to determine whether a relationship is worth investing in: if you feel lonelier around them than you do by yourself, you should consider reassessing whether that person is worth having in your life. 

Focus on positive people that bring joy in your life and help you grow as a person.

5. “Dolce far niente”

People that are conscious of their own limits know the value of taking some time off to relax.

Some people see vacation as an opportunity to explore as many new places as possible. Others that are driven to succeed might think rest and relaxation is wasted time and would rather do some work during the “relaxation” period.

While both choices are great ways to spend your free time, the time you spend relaxing shouldn’t be combined with stressful activities

Everyone needs a break, and a break shouldn’t involve anything that necessitates physical or mental effort.
