I’ve rounded up the best and easy ways to simplify your life this year for the future. By simplifying your life, you can take more control of your life, learn how to be happier, and enjoy life more!

So without further ado, let’s get on to it, shall we?

Set up automatic payments

Paying for your bills can get so stressful and doing it every month can be so tiring! I’d recommend you to set up automatic payments now. This way, you don’t suddenly miss on any credit card payment.

Link your credit cards, savings and utilities to your bank accounts and just watch them get deducted automatically. There are a lot of money management apps to help you with tracking your expenses and bills.

Become debt-free

I hate debts. Just thinking about them gets me stressed and moody. Every year, I strive to become debt-free and feeling that comes with it is just amazing!

This year, learn about better money management. Budget wisely, reach all your financial goals and pay off any debt you have. Trust me, you’ll get addicted to becoming debt-free!

Minimize your social media time

Spending too much time on social media is can be tiring. Instead of being productive, you’re on the couch scrolling on Facebook or Instagram. It’s counterproductive and I’m guilty of that! It’s one of the reasons why I keep my phone as far away from me as possible whenever I’m working.

Plus, you also end up comparing yourself to other people you see on social media which can negatively affect your mental health. From today on, start minimizing your time on social media.

In a few days, you’ll find yourself happier and find more time to do the things you’re most passionate about.


Get rid of things that don’t “spark joy”. Less is better. Having an organized home can give you mental peace. It simplifies your life since you save more time in finding stuff. You can even make money from it. Hold a garage sale or recycle your stuff and sell them online.

Use planners

I’m in love with Passion Planner! Its passion roadmaps, space of infinite possibility, and monthly reflections helped simplify my year. I got mine last December and it has helped me plan my week and my daily tasks. Getting a planner can help you take care of the smallest details.

Add reminders to your phone’s calendar

With everything that’s going on in your life, reminders are a huge help. This way, you don’t have to worry about forgetting any important dates.

Create a reminder for business tasks, semi-annual bills, license plate renewals, quarterly tax payments, medications, and so on.

Learn to say NO

It’s time to set boundaries and say no to things. Saying yes to everything can suck the life out of you and lead others to abuse your friendship.

Know when to say no and mean it. Doing so will help set the boundaries.
