After I retired I decided to make my life as simple as possible to decrease fatigue... both mentally and physically. No where in all of those "Simplify your Life" books does it mention that simplifying your life is a lot of hard work! A LOT OF WORK. This is especially true if you have a chronic illness. To simplify your life, you must first think... Oh Oh, did someone say "think". That takes energy. Then there, is the planning, organizing, and reevaluating to simplify life's demands. I often hear comments about how "organized" I am. Organization takes a LOT of work. It was not easy and it is a daily demand for me. My smartphone is hooked to my hip. Over the past several years, I have donated practically everything in my house. I STILL GOT STUFF. Mainly books... and all the things I need to make my life simple and "easy".
