Our days fill up so fast, and are so rushed and filled with distractions, that they seem to be bursting.
It’s a huge source of stress for most people, and stress is perhaps the most important factor determining whether we’re healthy or sick.
So how can we simplify our days? It’s not incredibly hard, but I’ve found it’s best done in steps.
These are the steps I followed, though of course calling them “rules” means we should test them and break them as needed. No rules should be followed blindly. I’ve found these to work really well, though.
See below for my June Challenge to help you implement a simpler day.
9 Rules for a Simpler Day
These are the rules I suggest:
Sea Change Simplify Your Day Challenge
I invite you to join my June Challenge to Simplify Your Day, by signing up for my Sea Change Program.
How does the challenge work? We’ll have a “Say No” habit for you to do every day, but it will have a different focus each week (commitments, tasks, single-tasking, etc.).
You’ll also be able to use the forums and accountability teams in the Sea Change Program, and I’ll hold a live webinar and share 2-4 articles on the topic.
Track Your Challenge Habit on Lift
Finally, we’re adding a new tool to this challenge: a Sea Change group on Lift, which is a great habit app for the iPhone (and now with a web app version in beta). You’ll use Lift to log your habit each day, and we’ll all be able to see each other’s progress and encourage each other. Fun!
To join the group on Lift, please sign up for Sea Change, and I’ll be notifying the Sea Change members of how to join the Lift group and challenge.
