The Blog

Welcome to the blog at Balance Through Simplicity! I’m so pleased you’re here and I hope I can provide information, encouragement and inspiration to help you live a simpler, more intentional life.

I know you’re busy and I want to make it easy for you to find what you’re looking for. So, to help you, I’ve split the blog into different categories. Check them out below to find what you need!


Here are my latest posts grouped together in one collection. If you’re a regular visitor to my site, you’ll know that I regularly add fresh content, usually once and sometimes twice a week. Pop here with a cup of coffee in hand to read what’s new!

Make things easier by making them simpler! Life is complicated enough so these blog posts will show you how and why to simplify many aspects of your life. Whether it’s simplifying your home, routines, time, self-care or your life in general, there’s something for everyone!

Be intentional about what you let into your life and the direction it takes. An intentional life means that you make careful, deliberate decisions about what’s important and what’s not and you become more purposeful about everything that you do. Don’t be a bystander in your life! These blog posts will help you create a life that supports YOU!

Stop winging it through life! Instead of letting life happen to you and having to tackle problems as they hit you, why not get a little more organised? You’ll save yourself a lot of time, wasted energy and cut down on the stress by planning ahead and pre-empting problems before they become a problem!

Looking after yourself isn’t selfish! Although you probably put yourself at the bottom of the priority list, YOU are important. These posts will help you prioritise yourself through self care, creating time for you or investing in yourself through personal development.

Minimalism is a lifestyle that focuses on the important by removing the unimportant. It’s not about throwing away everything that you own or living with no furniture and bare white walls. These posts will help you shift your thinking, re-focus on what makes you happy, what you really need and let go of the rest.

Studies have shown that less clutter = less stress. These posts will help you declutter your home, your mind, your time and your calendar to remove the clutter and lessen your stress. Actionable challenges, decluttering projects, expert hacks and FAQs to make decluttering easy for you!

Time is the one thing we never have enough of. If you’d like help carving more time out of your day for the things you WANT to do (rather than need to do), being more productive and managing the time you do have better, then these posts will help you do just that!
