Yes, I live in a remote, rural area deep in the French countryside but look at what I have
I don't have 24 hour supermarkets, motorways, traffic jams, pollution, vandalism, shootings...I won't go on!
I was lucky that I could get off the hamster wheel and escape. I found what was important to me.
If you think that you can't change your lifestyle.....you can ...from right where you are sitting right now!
Start by thinking about what is important in your life. What are your must-haves....and they shouldn't be material things.
Health, happiness, love and time cannot be bought from any shop.
Then begin to simplify by decluttering, your home, your garage, your wardrobe....we all have far too much stuff!
Can you grow your own food? Even in a window box you can grow tomatoes and herbs.
Think about downsizing - do you really need such a big house or apartment?
Ditch the toxic friends that take and never give, they will only drain and depress you.
Living more simply you slow down and are more mindful of what you are doing and what you have.
Try making a simplified version that fits your life.
Have you simplified your life? What did you do? Did it make you happier?
