Live a simple life day 8   - Copyright Christine Sternfels

To live a simple life… pick your battles and keep calm.  This reduces the time and energy you spend being angry and frustrated, thus giving you more time to be focused, pleasant and happy.  Have a great weekend everyone!

    What I do, is simple, but needs constraint! Whenever I’m upset towards a person who might have wronged me, I’ve learned that keeping calm and not reacting to whatever the issue is. Wait until the anger or anxiety has gone down. I then write a letter, this way, unlike when you are on the phone or face to face (confrontational) I’ve been able to pacify my emotions, thought things over and no harm has been done. Most times our tongues are sharper than a sword. Simplify life by pausing and thinking first.

    I’ve never thought of picking battles and keeping calm as simple living. But I can see the connection. Interesting.
