Quality Over Quantity

Always. Aim to live with an edited amount of high-quality possessions and goods that are either used often or add value to your life in some say.

STOP. BUYING. SHIT.

BE KIND

Aside from being a nice human, make sure you treat yourself with the love and respect that you deserve. Move more. Eat well. Rest up (yes; I will be banging on a lot about sleep).

DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

That’s the end goal here. Through tweaking the organizational aspects of your life, work and home, space will appear for you to spend more time doing whatever the hell it is that makes you the happiest.

ASK YOURSELF THIS FIRST.
