It doesn’t take much to make life feel abundant and rich. Basic things like cool water on a hot day, bread and soup when you are hungry, and talking with a good friend are the simple pleasures that remind you to choose authenticity over conspicuous consumption.

Meditations, quotes, and action steps help you focus on clearing clutter and making more room in your life for what makes your heart sing. This practical guide for a month of simplicity and grace reminds you of commonsense wisdom you already know. Meditations include:

• Know When Enough Is Enough
• Be a Creator, Not a Consumer
• Acquire Experiences Instead of Things
• Stick to the Basics
• Transform Your Relationship to Money
• Emphasize Style Over Fashion
• Clear Emotional Clutter
• Repair or Restore Something
• Cultivate a Grateful Heart

The beginnings of a simpler life are less about impressive acts and more about small choices. Each choice is like a seed planted in mind and heart, body and soul. Choosing silence over media distraction, emphasizing loving relationships above monetary calculations, and becoming a contributor to life instead of being merely a consumer are all ways you can create a simpler life you truly love.

Practice Spiritual Simplicity

The simplicity of paring down, cleaning out, and clearing clutter in your physical life can be a reflection of an inner simplicity that is deeply rooted in the sacredness of life itself. This inner spiritual simplicity can be described as a childlike faith in the One who created you and who is with you every single day of your life.

Resting in the greatness and grace of the Divine Presence frees you to make more elegant choices that can transform your life from one of anxiety and chaos to a life filled with an abundance of joy and peace. Focus on the essentials and all else will fall into place.

The serene silent beauty of a holy life is the most powerful influence in the world, next to the might of the Spirit of God.
Blaise Pascal
