HELLO AND WELCOME!
Hello, I’m Antonia and welcome to Balance Through Simplicity! This is a website and blog created to help you declutter your home and simplify your life.
Modern life can be tough. We’re encouraged from every angle to do more, achieve more, buy more, BE more… But more of all these things doesn’t mean that we’re happier or more fulfilled. Quite the opposite sometimes.
If you’re feeling overstretched or overwhelmed, unsettled or frustrated with a busy home, life and schedule, I hope I can help.
Let’s find a way to declutter and simplify your home, schedule, heart and mind and create a better balance through simplicity!
I know how it feels to struggle through your days. A few years ago I was juggling a career with a young family. I was working hard and burning the candle at both ends, desperately trying to give 100% to everything – my job, my husband, my kids, myself.
The irony was that I was working so hard for a better life, but I didn’t have time or energy to enjoy this better life.
My life was cluttered and far from simple.
One day I reached breaking point and this was the catalyst for change. A change that led to me ditching the chaos and clutter and making my life simpler and easier. You can read more about me.
This website is where I share what I’ve learnt in the hope that it may help you too.
SIMPLE AND INTENTIONAL LIVING
To help you find your way around my site and explore what simple and intentional living could look like for you, here are some key steps you might like to take…
Step 1: Decluttering
Decluttering is the first step to simplifying life. It’s where most people can see and feel the difference by creating a home that’s less of a burden and more of a haven. Instead of hiding behind our stuff, or feeling overwhelmed and powerless against the build-up of clutter, I encourage you to take small, consistent, baby steps to declutter your home and your life and keep that clutter away. Learn more about decluttering.
Step 2: Minimalism
Decluttering your home doesn’t automatically make you a minimalist but, if you’ve experienced the benefits of a decluttered home, you might like to explore minimalism in your own life. You can declutter and simplify your schedule, your habits and routines, self-care, finances and many other aspects of life to remove clutter in all its shapes and forms. Free yourself from the things which distract and pull you off course and make time and space for what matters most to you. Less stuff but a fuller, richer life in every other way. Learn more about the minimalist lifestyle.
Step 3: Intentional living
An intentional life is one where you’re in the driving seat. Through a series of deliberate, purposeful daily decisions you can choose a path that honours your priorities and values. Instead of being pushed and pulled in different directions by busy, modern life, take courage to tread your own path. Create boundaries, choose meaningful direction and live this precious life true to yourself. Living intentionally is a powerful way to help you go from living on autopilot to living on purpose.
