Read a book tip w logoWELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  For the next few weeks I will be sharing (1) simple tip to help inspire you to lead a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.

Tip #3 – Read A Book

See. I just gave you permission to sit down and read a book.  Your welcome!

Simplifying life is not just about getting rid of clutter.  It’s also about taking time to slow down. 

As a kid I would spend hours reading books.  It was one of my most delightful experiences as a child.  I would stretch out on my bed, lay upside down on the couch or prop my feet up in the tree house with a good book.  Sometimes, if I was hiding from my annoying brothers, (because at that age, brothers are always annoying) I would sneak into the hay mow and find a quiet corner deep in the hay.  It was also a good place to hid from chores and weed pulling in the garden too.

So this week, the simple tip is to slow down and read a book.  Personally, I like a real book where I can feel the paper in my hand and watch the words spill from one page to the other.  But however you read, I challenge you to take at least 30 minutes to slow down and bask in the written word.

Right now I am just diving into a great new book that has yet to be released.  It’s called “Undone – A story of Making Peace with an Unexpected Life” by Michele Cushatt.  It is promising to be a powerful book already – I’ve laughed, cried and underlined – and I’m not even out of chapter one!

So, what are you reading?  What kind of book do you like to curl up with? 

Keeping It Simple,
