I know a lot of us love the idea of living a simple life. I fell in love with the concept the minute I discovered it.
To me simple living meant less to do, more time to enjoy life, less to worry about.. It was about letting go of being 'busy' and enjoying a slower pace.
It was a beautiful idea and I wanted it to become my new reality immediately. No more rushing and hurrying, no more barking at my children to get ready quickly, no more competing with others on 'who was the busiest'. I couldn't wait to feel at ease, rested, relaxed and peaceful with my new lifestyle choice..
But I remember how stressful it was when I first started thinking about simplifying my life. The whole thing was too overwhelming.
I had no idea where to start. I felt like I needed to simplify everything and I needed to simplify fast! This just made me feel more busy and stressed than ever - the opposite of what I was aiming for.
I had to let go of the need to be perfect at it, and instead just simplify my approach to simplifying ;)
So started with just one small step, one way to simplify, and once I got used to that change, I moved onto the next. Then the next, and the next - never moving on until the current step had become more of a habit.
I still have a fair way to go, but life now is quieter, more peaceful. I'm slowly giving up the reward of doing 'busy' well. Even my organising tasks are focused on freeing up my time rather than being able to squeeze more into my days.
I love this change and the effect it has had on me as a mother and a person.
If you want to simplify your life and you're feeling overwhelmed at the idea, I have a list below of what I started with - you can try it if you like!

I think most of us know someone who seems naturally organised. They go about life with everything falling into place, effortlessly moving from one day to another without ever looking overwhelmed or flustered. They're always on time and they never forget anything.
I'm not one of those people.
I need to be organised because without it, I forget everything. I over commit, I feel overwhelmed, I get lazy, I get frustrated and I have a tendency to think things will take a lot less time than they actually do, which often leaves me running a few minutes late if I don't stay on track with my 'organised habits'.
So for me organising (especially as a parent) doesn't really come naturally. I thought I was naturally organised, before I had children. Now, looking back, I realise I only felt organised because I had a lot less to juggle!
Getting my life and home organised has really been a journey, one that I think will continue forever, one step at a time, and my biggest goal is to use it to simply make my life easier.
So if that's you too, don't stress about it. Just pick one thing at a time, get organised with that, and then move onto the next. Over time, these things add up and you'll find your days are a lot more organised, and easier :)
Today I'm sharing the 3 things I focused on first that really made a difference in my life and got me more organised pretty quickly. Looking around, I think a lot of 'naturally organised' people do them too.

I get a lot of emails from busy mums who are feeling frustrated and overwhelmed, always in a rush trying to get the kids dressed and ready each morning and feeling like they have to get ready for an argument every time.
I'm a big believer in encouraging independence when it comes to the kids getting dressed, and the biggest benefits are:
* It helps with their gross motor skills (balance) and fine motor skills (buttons, zips)
* It gives kids a sense of accomplishment as they get the hang of it
*It frees you up and you feel like a mum, not a slave..
So today I want to share with you my tips for encouraging your kids to dress themselves every day - without nagging.
