How to Slow Down and Enjoy Life Again

Enjoy the simple things in life.

It’s not easy to walk through life at high speed and trying to keep up with work and family at the same time is a lot. But oftentimes, it’s time-consuming, exhausting, and unavoidable. Learning to navigate and manage your schedule, family, and work life will allow you to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life.  

Does this mean that all of your responsibilities will halt? Certainly not, but having the tools and understanding to oversee all areas of your life will give you the confidence to enjoy life rather than just survive it. At Meru Mentor, we can connect with you as your personal life mentor and provide you with those tools, making it easier to take control of your life and enjoy it.

Ways to Slow Down and Simplify Life 

The first step to slowing down and enjoying life is to understand your priorities. It’s easy to get caught up in the fast pace of waking up, going to work, coming home, making dinner, and starting the bedtime routine that we neglect to align priorities in the process.  

What would it look like if you found ways to simplify your life and implement defined priorities? 

Here are some questions that can help you streamline your priorities:

  • What are my long-term goals and how do my current tasks align with them?
  • What are the most important tasks that I need to complete in the next 24 hours or week?
  • What are the tasks that are urgent and require immediate attention?
  • What are the tasks that can be delegated to someone else?
  • What are the low-priority tasks that can be postponed or eliminated?
  • What are the habits or practices that are wasting my time and need to be adjusted?
  • How can I effectively manage my time and energy to maximize my productivity?

By asking yourself these questions regularly, you can stay focused on your priorities and make sure you’re making the most of your time. Simplifying your life is not meant to be burdensome, but to relieve the heavy weight of overwhelm instead.  

Another way we can slow down and simplify our lives is by determining what aspects of our lives are non-negotiable and what aspects can be moved around, rescheduled, or removed completely.  It is not necessary to attend every event, meeting, and party, but understanding which appointments are essential and which ones are not will lead to a much more relaxed life. 

Things to Do to Enjoy Life Again

What can you add to your life that will help you reduce stress and make life enjoyable again? Set aside time to plan out what your ideal day or week would look like. 

  • If you need time to reflect on the day, carve out 30 min before going to bed.  
  • If you struggle to have consistent quiet time, prioritize getting up 30 min earlier to read and pray.  
  • If you feel like your afternoons are chaotic, take time to assess how they could flow differently in the future. 

When you have the discipline you need to prioritize and evaluate where you are and where you want to be, you’ll soon realize life is a lot simpler than you were making it out to be.  

Keep your priorities straight and make yourself accountable!
