On a Quest to Simplify - Streamline Your Virtual Life

Simplification is a never-ending journey, I know that. But there are also moments of insight, when you get carried on the wings of inspiration and open a new page in life. 

The road to simplicity is simple in itself. You are not supposed to take many turns and there aren't even bumps. You just walk, as simple as that, straight ahead to the light. 

Why do we need to simplify, you may ask. Well, because there is no other way to a healthy and creative mind. The less clutter around, the clearer you see your purpose, the easier you identify your goals.

Simple as it appears, I realize the journey may be hard for some of us. After much thought I came to the conclusion that it is a good first step to declutter your virtual life. That is why I devised a 5 step plan for simplifying your virtual life, which was published last week on green living ideas. You are welcome to read it and join the discussion!

Do you take any actions for simplifying your virtual life?


  1. I read the article and I agree- it's time - and it's been for a long time - to declutter my computer folders...why do I find that so hard to do?:((

  2. its an ongoing practice that touches so many parts of our life ..thanks always for such insight

  3. I agree--if I'm stressed out and look at a cluttered house it makes me even more crazy. Clean and simple. It's the only way I can feel relaxed.

  4. I try to simplify,but it is challenging.

    I recently discovered Google reader and that has saved me a lot of time when it comes to reading blogs.

    I also make an effort to delete old photos of items I am not planning on selling again to free up space on my computer.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  5. I've been trying to simplify my virtual life; I don't read NEARLY so many blogs as I used to, for one thing! I don't spend as much time doing meaningless browsing; I spend most of my time on the computer either replying to emails, reading/writing blog posts, or working on my novel. So yes, I'd say my virtual life is simplifying! ;)

  6. This is something I definitely need to do. Heading over to read the article now... :)

  7. I'll check it out! Awesome photo, too!
