Day 10. A thankful heart is a happy heart.

Practicing gratitude can actually make us happier. Practice being mindful of the good things in your day today. Be thankful throughout the day and see what effects it has on your day and mood. Gratitude can help us to be satisfied, give more generously to others, and live in the present. Being thankful for what we have can also combat comparison, competition, and envy. When we’re happy with who we are and what we have now, then there is no need to chase after more material things.  

Practice gratitude and you’ll find less need to add more stuff. When we’re content and thankful, we can see the truth that more stuff won’t bring happiness. Most importantly, gratitude can help us discover the simplicity that minimalism provides: less stuff and more life.

New Year’s Resolution: Declutter Your Life

Every day in January, there will be a short post with one area to minimize and declutter. There will be tips and tricks, encouraging articles to read, and some advice on how to proceed. Each image and challenge will also be on the Simple Adventure facebook page. Or you can join the facebook group: Declutter You Life for encouragement throughout January. If you want a place to ask questions, share your triumphs, or post your decluttered area, then comment and join the conversation on that day’s post!

You can also sign up for the Simple Adventure Newsletter to receive updates every few weeks. I’ll send you my favourite articles since the last newsletter.
