Simplicity and balance.
Simplicity is often about finding a balance in life. And minimalism is about being intentional about what stuff, relationships, and activities we let into our lives. For instance, we can simplify life when we find the balance between embracing both selflessness and self-care
Connection between selflessness and self-care.
Consider how in order to become really generous, we need to learn how to take care of our own hearts. When you learn to take care of yourself, then you can actually give more fully to others. For example, you need to feed your body, get enough sleep, stay healthy, have friends, and develop one of your interests or passions. Making these things a priority isn’t being selfish.
Simplify your life by making space in your day or week to go for a walk, read a book, or have coffee with a friend; make space for something that will energize you and help you feel rested and happy. The people around you will be happier as a result.
When you take care of yourself, then you can give more generously to the people in your life.
