With this new blog I’m jumping into the deep waters of the blogging world to write about one of my passions — living a happier and more simple life. I am so excited to launch Happy Simple Life, and if you are here, you probably share this passion for living with less and enjoying life more. I’m thrilled you are part of this community.
I want to offer you ideas, strategies, and inspiration for designing your life around what truly matters to YOU most. A simple and happy life requires us to clear out the clutter – not only from our physical space, but also from our schedules, our thoughts, our relationships, and our emotions. Easier said than done, right? But together, we’ll learn from each other and share ideas and meaningful tips on how to improve ourselves so we can experience the happiest life – as we define that for ourselves.
And some of the best strategies come from experts who have written extensively about simple living and happiness. As my way of celebrating the simple, happy life and sharing it with you, I have selected 16 of the best writers around the web who focus on this topic and offer inspiration for enjoying more of life with less stress, less stuff, and less worry. Hope you enjoy them!
