Simplifying your life will bring balance, freedom, and
joy. When we begin to live simply and experience these

streams of distraction are bad. Learn when to power off
the phone, log off social media, or not read a text. Focus on
the important, not the urgent.
A steady flow of distractions from other people may
make us feel important, needed, or wanted, but feeling
important and accomplishing importance are completely
