This simple life allows you more space, time and freedom to focus on what’s important and let go of the unimportant, whether that’s physical and material possessions or just mental clutter such as negative emotions, bad habits, limiting beliefs and mindsets. This simple life leads to an intentional life where you make careful, deliberate decisions about what’s important and what’s not and you become more intentional about everything that you do.
