Is there such a thing? I think there can be but it takes work. We just don’t live in the same world we did 25 years ago.
Things are a bit crazy now.
Heads buried in phones, less human interaction and less outdoor play.
What’s really sad is that our kids aren’t even getting the same life we did. They won’t know what it’s like to get bored because why would they…everything is at their fingertips. They are even taught on iPads in school!
Our schedules are jammed packed now that it takes two incomes to support a family…for the most part. Activities galore, no time for rest and little family time to just be together.
Simplifying your life includes letting go of things that don’t add value. If you are too busy being stressed about driving your family around to a zillion activities, then let go of some. Focus on things you can do at home or as a family instead…..your kids won’t be ruined. More kids are ridden with anxiety now than ever before. Too much pressure from school and too much pressure from society! I can’t stand it.
Let’s all focus on the now. Right now. It’s all that matters anyways.
Less stuff, less junk, less shopping, more loving, more cooking, more lounging.
