Everyone wants to live an extremely comfortable life. However, it can be hard if you hate your job and trying to make it through day by day. That is why most people hang on to their credit cards. So what exactly do you think you should do to enjoy your life despite not laying on a bed full of money? Here are some guidelines you can do to live a simple life.
Change Your Perspective
Being happy and content is all about perspectives. A man who lives in a massive mansion, who owns luxury cars, who makes billions a year can be unhappy just because of how he sees his life. Most people think it is all about the money but the thing is, not everything can be brought by money. However, it is kind of sad that people would only realize this once they became rich and the people who are wishing for it to rain with money, doesn’t know that there are actually far greater things in life than money. Changing how you see things will definitely make you feel different.

If you have a job you don’t really like, with a boss you hate and you live in a small apartment and you feel awful and tired of living like that but then, you fail to realize how incredibly lucky you are, if only you see things beyond all the negativity.
If you don’t like your job and you hate your boss, then you are not alone, there is a lot of people who don’t like their job but guess what, there are also people who don’t have a job and a boss to hate because they either live on the street or living from what the government gives them.
There are people who can’t go to work because they are sick and some of them can never go back to work. And there are some people who are in jail for the rest of their life, paying for the crime they never did. If you see how lucky you are compared to these people, then you might be grateful that you wake up every day to go work and have an apartment to go home to. Life is full of struggles but it is how we face and overcome them that will surely make them into challenges we can get through. Wanting more is not bad, but you got to use it as a motivation to work harder and smarter to reach that goal.
Know The Difference Between Needs and Wants
Having a huge HDTV is not something you need, it is something that you want. Having a decent smartphone is only a need if you need it for work or other social stuff especially if you have a medieval phone.
Spending $1000 on makeup is definitely not a need, instead not knowing whether you actually know the difference between what your needs and wants are.
Don’t worry, you are not alone because there are a lot of people who still struggle with this. It may be too complicated for some, but the truth is, it is actually very simple. Needs are the things that are essential to us like food, clothing and shelter. Wants are the things we don’t necessarily need right away like gadgets, accessories etc. Pretty simple right? However, people onwards are blinded by the society we call “social media” where we buy things like expensive shoes and bags, a newly released iPhone and spending way too much money on restaurants just for you to take a photo and share it on your social media pages. It is more for boasting and bragging now and it is very sad that people are willing to go broke over this.
If you can manage to cook and eat at home, DO IT. If you have an old car but it is working really fine, DRIVE IT and if your TV is not HD or as big as your entire wall, USE IT then if you have a simple life and you’re contented and happy, LIVE IT.
Eat whatever you can afford to eat and buy the clothes you can afford to buy as long as you need them and it doesn’t make you bankrupt. Life is simple if you know how to handles every struggle. Life is simple if you know how to go with the flow. It is not about being better than the others by having more of what they have. You can become a better person and be an inspiration for them to simply live their lives for themselves.
