the 10 commandments for simplifying your life

Posted on May 10, 2007


sunriseFrom the Ririan Project (welcome to the blogroll), here are 10 simple commandments for having a simpler life. They really are very basic, easily implemented, and effective, and I encourage you to look for ways to work them into your life. Here I’ll list just  the commandments themselves: go to their website for the full details.

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

– Henry David Thoreau

  1. You shall find work that is fun.
  2. You shall laugh on a daily basis.
  3. You shall sell the box sitting in your living room.
  4. You shall break your addiction to the news and go on a “news fast.”
  5. You shall get in the habit of taking daily “silence breaks.”
  6. You shall clean up your act.
  7. You shall turn off your technology.
  8. You shall be spontaneous.
  9. You shall set a bedtime and stick to it.
  10. You shall learn what is “enough.”
