What does simplicity have to do with health? At first glance, maybe nothing. But as we probe deeper into trying to simplify our lives with great advice and wisdom from Joel Zaslofsky, it’s clear that simplicity can have a great impact on our health. By de-cluttering our lives, careers, and belongings we can create a clear path to what’s really important in our lives. Simplifying life can reduce stress, as well as create mental and emotional freedom.
I wish creating a simpler life was easier. Married with two kids, managing a career and household, and trying to impact our world with this podcast and blog is definitely a challenge. Creating simplicity in this context seems like an impossibility, but I’m a believer in starting small and building progress along the way.
Joel has a lot of great ideas in this podcast and I encourage you to listen, take notes, and see how you can create a simpler life for better health and better life overall.
