Ways to Stop Complicating Life and Start Living

We’ve all been there. Those times in life that seem so complicated that we don’t know what to do next. These are the times when you should pause, take your breath, and just relax. We often complicate things. Panic makes it difficult to see the problem clearly.

This article will show you how to stop making life difficult and live a truly fulfilling life.

It sounds pretty amazing, right? Let’s get to it!

1. You are a work in progress

You are a work in process. Accept that fact. You are not the only one. Everybody on the planet is in the exact same boat. We are all sinking together if our ships sink on this issue.

You don’t have to be perfect just because you are a work-in-progress. This simply means that you are still learning and trying to improve. I’m sorry if you don’t feel like a work-in-progress at this stage. You are missing out.

My point is to not complicate things simply because you don’t feel good enough. You are certainly enough. Stop blaming yourself for being imperfect.

2. Live honestly

You don’t know how many people I see who overcomplicate their lives by living immorally. This not only makes them look bad, but it also makes them feel bad about their own self-worth.

You can complicate your life by lying, cheating, or stealing to gain an advantage or get ahead. As you should, you worry about getting caught and whether it will all catch up with you.

Stop living like this. Moral living is important. Live a moral life and be kind to others. Don’t make life difficult by being a bad person. Keep it simple and do the things you believe are best for your heart.

3. Communicate clearly

This is one of the best ways to simplify your life. Too many people create problems for themselves because they don’t know how to communicate effectively .

This can lead to problems. There is no way to know what you are thinking, and if it isn’t obvious, it will likely be misinterpreted, which can lead to problems later on.

You’ll be amazed at the positive impact that practicing clear and consistent communication can have on your life, and how it helps you avoid problems. This skill is vital and can have a profound impact on your daily life.

4. Stop Being Too Materialistic

This is a huge one. Too many people are influenced by society’s script telling them that they need more of everything.

Quantity will never be as great as it is hyped up to be. Quantity is never going to be as good as quality. Instead of hoarding everything, focus on quality and not quantity.

Don’t waste money on people you don’t care about.

Wealth can’t be obtained by material possessions. So manage your wealth wisely. Your lifestyle will be simpler if you can reduce your desire for material possessions.

5. Don’t Waste Time Changing People

You can make your life more complicated than ever by trying to control and change the people around. They will not appreciate you and eventually make you unhappy with your life.

Stop complicating your life and accept others as they are. You don’t have to try to control or change people.

You should just be happy for them as they are. If you don’t, maybe it’s time you thought about whether you should spend your time with someone else.

6. Reduce your exposure to toxic people

Your average is the sum of all the people you surround yourself with. It is important to constantly audit your social network.

Spend more time with smart, mature, driven, kind people if you have the option. The reason is that one group will propel you forward and the other group will hinder your growth.

This does not mean you should avoid them entirely. You just need to minimize your exposure.

You have a short life and you could regret it. If these people are prone to toxic tendencies, it is possible that some of your problems stem from them.

You don’t need them to make your life harder or more challenging.

7. Stop procrastinating about everything

We both know you do it. It happens to us all from time-to-time. Procrastination can be a major stressor in our lives. We do it with no guilt. Why? This added stress is not necessary.

We all know we need to do something, but we leave it until the very last minute. This can lead to unnecessary complications in our lives. Do whatever you can to get rid of procrastination.

To-Do lists and schedules are essential. Set deadlines that you can meet. To get things done quickly, do whatever you can.

This will allow you to simplify your life and get on with the job. When you have everything in order, you will feel more in control of you life. This will allow you to live more fully.

8. Learn how to say no

You can’t be everything to everyone. You’ll end up saying no to everyone and complicating your life.


It’s a lose-lose scenario. This is not something you need in your life.

It is ironic that learning to say no sometimes to people can help you in many ways.

It will allow you to be more focused on the people and activities that you really want to spend your time with. This will make you happier than your average day because you are doing what you love.

It will allow you to be more present for those opportunities and people. This will enable you to be your best self and make the most of every situation.

Do yourself a favor and stop making promises you can’t keep or don’t want. You will be miserable if you overcommit.
