It’s time to simplify your life! The first week in August is National Simplify Your Life Week. This holiday encourages individuals to refocus their lives and declutter. That doesn’t just mean escaping physical objects and material items, it can be as simple as clearing your head to gain peace of mind. Life can become overwhelming quite easily, but Capitol Federal® is here to help. Here are five helpful tips to simplify your life:

Don’t Overcommit- We live in a culture focused on avoiding disappointment. Whether it’s our bosses, colleagues, families or friends, we often find ourselves saying “yes”, when we should be saying “no.” Try to eliminate four minor commitments you have in the next week. Practicing this exercise will not only simplify your life, but allows you to think about what you do and don’t like to do.

Unplug from Technology- No texting, no TV, no social media. Promise yourself 60 minutes a day this week to unplug from the wired world. Utilize this free hour to catch up on something you’ve been putting off, like starting a new book.

Tackle Things You’ve Been Postponing. How many projects have you been meaning to finish, but still haven’t even started? Get out there and tackle them. Crossing them off your to-do list will feel like a breath of fresh, simplified air.

Prepare for the Morning. Do you constantly feel rushed? Try packing your lunches the night before, or laying your clothes out on your dresser before going to bed. Eliminate the things you need to do when you wake up, so your mind isn’t filled with a hundred things to do before even getting out of bed.

Chaos is Often a Source of Stress. Cluttered desk? Clean it off. Confusing finances? Sit down and figure them out with a friend or an advisor. Part of simplifying life is regaining control over the things that feel like they’re out of whack. Clean your space and you’ll clear your mind.
