I have spent an inordinate amount of time in my office chair over the past month. Much more than I normally would, and most of it early in the morning. (For example, my alarm went off at 3am on Sunday, and it wasn’t even an accident!)
But I’ve been working on things. Exciting things that I haven’t been able to share. Until now.
I’ve been lucky enough to be working alongside some of my favourite simplicity bloggers to help create A Simple Year.
Living simply provides so many benefits, but it can be challenging to maintain a commitment to long-term change. If you look forward to living with less stuff, stress and obligation so you can have more time, money and energy to pursue what means most to you, choose to live a simple year.
A Simple Year was designed to help simplify your life.
Each month you can focus on a new area of simplicity, working with one of the writers mentioned below. Here is a quick list of the topics, but visit simpleyear.co to learn more:
- January: Clutter with Joshua Becker
- February: Busyness with Courtney Carver
- March: Travel with Colin Wright
- April: Kitchen with Jules Clancy
- May: Digital with Tammy Strobel
- June: Work with Courtney Carver
- July: Money with Joshua Becker
- August: Stay Simple with Brooke McAlary
- September: Challenge with The Minimalists
- October: Food with Jules Clancy
- November: Relationships with Tammy Strobel
- December: Holidays with The Minimalists
Every month you’ll receive articles and information about a specific topic along with a live component such as a webinar, where you can connect with the author, ask questions and meet other people on a similar path. The live components will be recorded and provided so you can view them anytime.
I know many of you are hoping to make 2014 the year you create a simpler, happier life. This course, and the people who helped create it, can support you in doing just that. So take a look and tell me what you think.
The second thing I wanted to share with you, is the launch of Romper!
Those of you who pre-ordered Issue X should have received your copy yesterday, and I’m already receiving some amazing feedback from some of you. Thank you!
This exclusive pre-launch issue is now available to purchase, and will be emailed to you immediately, as a high-quality PDF. This means you can read it on your iPad, tablet, smartphone or desktop – anywhere you feel the need for a dose of optimism, simplicity and beauty.
Romper is about finding the tiny delights in life and celebrating them, and Issue X is packed full of inspiration.
And to those of you who have already bought a copy? From the bottom of my heart – thank you. I know it sounds naive, but I truly think we can change the world one person, one story, one choice at a time – simply by slowing down and seeing the beauty in the everyday.
