This week in my love note to my email list I’m talking about simplicity. Here with you, I am going to share what I do on a (mostly) daily basis to invite simplicity into my life, and to try to encourage it to stay.
When you’re first getting started with practicing simplicity, it can feel hard. If you’re anything like me, you can pause now, look back over your life, and realize how unnecessarily complicated you’ve made most things.
Simplicity allows you the space to focus on your desires without getting tangled up in overwhelm, fear, and anxiety. Simplicity is a breath of fresh air. It opens your eyes to what’s most important because your vision becomes less clouded.
When you can infuse your journey towards motherhood with simplicity you create more space for empowerment, ease, and enjoyment.
As with most things, simplicity is a practice, and to keep it going strong, to weave it into the fiber of who you are, it can help to have a few guiding practices. Here are some of mine.
Start small :: Make the bed. Morning pages. Lemon water.
Create space :: No technology for the first and last 2 hours of the day. Clear clutter.
Be grateful :: Remember the good. Release the not so good.
Nourish :: Whole, fresh foods. Uncomplicated and delicious.
Move your body :: Walk. Sun salutations. Dance party.
As you ease into your day, begin with the things that make you feel amazing. Be fully present in the moment. Enjoy the warm water rushing over your body. Hold that hot mug between your hands. Feel the cool breeze on your face.
Simplicity lives in the moments. That means that at any point, you can begin again. You can choose simplicity right now and know that you are giving yourself the gift of a simplicity practice.

Peace, Love, and Wellness,
Many of us struggle with realizing what’s important and seizing the moments in the day to day. It helps to be reminded 🙂
I agree, start small with making the bed. It makes such a difference.
