Like most bloggers, I follow a lot of other bloggers/women who inspire me on a daily basis. Some of them are friends I've known for years, others are near-celebrities I've never met. One of these gals I follow on instagram is Emily Ley. I'm SURE you've heard of her by now, but if not go check her out!!
This month she started something called the Simplicity Challenge - 2016! As if I needed another reason to stalk her page... now I'm checking in daily with her to see what that day's challenge is! As someone who always claims she wants life to be less stressful, etc., I don't make a lot of effort day in and day out to make this happen. Enter: The Simplicity Challenge.
Every morning I check in and see what that day holds...and try my best to make it happen, and if I can't, I write it down and give myself until the end of that week. I can successfully say its already made my life feel less stressful. It can be something as simple as cleaning out your car/home/etc., but I'm a firm believer that lack of physical clutter means lack of emotional clutter... and I'm ALL for that.
While we do have 3 weddings this month, we'll have a good break after that! I'm going to try my hardest not to let life get CRAZY like it did last year. Last year? I experienced a real anxiety attack, cried myself to sleep several times, and didn't make a ton of time to just BE. Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing year of personal and professional growth, but it was definitely challenging at times. So this year, I want to be more intentional on keeping my stress levels low. It can be easy to get overwhelmed, but I'm hoping small tasks like this will be a step in the right direction.
Happy hump day, friends!
