It’s my goal in every podcast episode to keep things simple because no matter who we are or what our situation is, simplifying can help, especially in a world that offers us plenty of complexity. This week, episode 194 of the Positively Living Podcast is about why simplifying is more important than organizing! 

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, I share why we so often resist simplicity, embracing complexity instead and I give you actionable steps to take right now to begin simplifying areas of your life. 

I cover the following topics:

  • Defining the word ‘simplify’. 
  • How something called the complexity bias keeps us from simplifying our life.
  • How decluttering and simplifying (two of my favorite words) go hand in hand. 
  • Questions to ask yourself when evaluating places in your life you can start to simplify.

Simplifying your life not only eases stress and speeds things up, it creates that space for you that you deserve.
