Worry less

Saying "Yes" to happiness is all about learning to say "No" to the things and people that stress you out.


To truly "live more, you first have to understand that "THE THINGS THAT MATTER ARE NOT THINGS."

You need to really evaluate your things. I mean all of your things. That bread-maker you used once, those boots you love but don't actually wear, that tea set your grandmother gave you but you never use.

To some people that's scary but trust me, once you start simplifying your life you will create time and space to "live more" and worry less as you discover what and who really matters to you.

All the while bathing in the glow of a television screen. “The biggest distractions we face today are often the glowing screens in front of us.” He points out that even some new toasters have wifi.

So Millburn decide to eliminate the mental clutter that spending time staring at screen produces. He'd leave his phone in airplane mode, and only chec...

​When was the last time you switched off for 24 hours?

If you can’t remember then a digital detox might be what you need.

I recently wrote about the day I left my phone at home and I thought I enjoyed being less connected and "on call" I felt that "to fully feel the benefit of being without my phone I think I would have been better to totally "unplug" and leave my laptop at home too!" So that's what I've done, a digital detox.

On Friday night at 11:00 pm I put both of my phones and my laptop in a draw and didn't retrieve them until 8:00 am on Monday.  57 glorious hours free of distractions and significantly improved sleep....
