A good way to reduce stress is to live simply. When you have few possessions, you tend to be more organized, because you simply have less “stuff” to manage and organize and be concerned about.
Do you find yourself sometimes searching for a pen that writes decently and doesn’t smudge ? Even in the age of computers, pens are still sometimes necessary.
I own two pens at the moment. One was a gift from my husband in 1990. I have never lost it, because I keep it in my purse, the only purse I own.
My other pen is a Japanese calligraphy pen. It is a beautiful waiting instrument, I use to write in my journal. I always keep it in the same place, beside my journal.
If we are serious about wanting to reduce stress in our lives, we might consider living more simply.
As my hero Gandhi said : ” Live simply so that others can simply live.”
