​Life gets crazy sometimes. Between work, family, and other responsibilities, it can feel overwhelming to get through the day. Lucky for you, National Simplify Your Life Week is coming! While there’s no one right way to clear space in your schedule, there are some common things everyone can think about trying. The first week in August is a great time to implement some of these changes.

Take Advantage of Prep Work

How much time do you spend picking out your clothes or packing lunches every morning? Give yourself a few extra minutes to sleep or relax in the morning by laying out your clothes and packing lunches beforehand. That crazy rush in the morning suddenly won’t feel quite so crazy – and your whole day will be calmer as a result.
