[How to quickly simplify your life]

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
-Albert Einstein


Did you know I call myself an “Opulent Essentialist”?
It is like minimalism, but more luxurious.
I used to be a maximalist, meaning I had a lot of material possessions.
The deeper I devote myself to my personal path of True Self Mastery by taking good care of myself and my loved ones while making a positive impact in the world, simplifying life has become a baseline necessity.
One of the way we can simplify our lives is to limit the amount of chooses we make in any given day.
Did you know that the average person makes an average of 35,000 choices a day?
That is a lot of choices.
One of the simplest ways you can simplify your life is taking the bandwidth you use to choose what to wear every day and use it for other more important things.
Now don’t get me wrong…I love clothes, style and design.
I was voted best dressed senior in High School.
I went to Parson’s School of Design for Fashion Design.
I am still a designer.
And, choosing what to wear can take a lot of time that I now feel can be used in better ways.
So, believe it or not, more or less, every day, I am currently wearing 3 outfits: One for exercise, one for work and one for sleeping.
I have doubles of everything so everything is always clean, neat and ready to go.
It was a process to get here, but I am here, and I love it.

Did you know Einstein did the same thing as I am doing?
Albert Einstein was known for adopting a simple and consistent approach to his wardrobe.
He typically wore the same style of clothing every day, which usually included a gray suit, a white shirt, and a tie.
This choice was driven by a desire to minimize the number of decisions he had to make each day, allowing him to focus his mental energy on more important matters, such as his scientific work.

Einstein’s decision to stick to a basic and repetitive wardrobe is often attributed to the idea of reducing decision fatigue.
The concept of decision fatigue suggests that the more choices a person has to make throughout the day, the more mental energy is expended, potentially leading to decision-making fatigue and a decrease in the quality of decisions. By adopting a consistent outfit, Einstein aimed to streamline his daily routine and conserve mental resources for his scientific endeavors.

The 3 Steps:

  • Authentic Alignment: Once you are authentically aligned with your True Self and know what your Purpose, Values, Message and Vision are, you are guided by a powerful force and do not want to divert your precious energy to figure out what to wear everyday. So choose your 3 uniforms for exercise, work/daytime and sleeping for those days when you don’t want to think about it. Always have them washed and ready to go so you can focus on bringing your magical genius to more important things.
  • Vibration Transformation: Make sure that your uniforms are represent you. When you put them on you feel like you are visually representing your True Self and feel comfortable and confident. When you wear your uniforms you feel like they instantly transform your vibration on all levels.
  • Conscious Creation: Once you put on your uniform, stop thinking about what you look like. Know you look awesome! Now flow all of your mojo to consciously creating the life you vision for yourself personally and professionally, so you can make your positive impact on yourself, your loved ones and the world.

Closing Thoughts:

Transitioning to a simpler way of dressing might seem like a small thing, but this lifestyle shift can help you to create a more purpose-driven existence. Echoing Einstein’s and my approach of a consistent wardrobe and simplifying the 35,000 choices you make every day becomes a path to focus on what truly matters.
Simplification isn’t about sacrificing style but redirecting decision-making energy into more impactful areas.
Choosing everyday uniforms that align with your greater purpose will allow you the freedom to consciously create a life that reflects your personal and professional aspirations.

I love you and I support you.
