Anna Halliday, LMHC, a Lotus Counseling psychotherapist, shares her thoughts on Celebrating National Simplicity Day. "Each year, July 12th is celebrated as National Simplicity Day in honor of literary figure and social commentator Henry David Thoreau. National Simplicity Day serves to remind us to take stock of what is important in our lives and to be grateful for what we have. It is the perfect time to de-clutter your space and endeavor to curb impulsive spending habits! Simplicity also reminds us to nurture relationships that are rewarding and to step back from those that are not. One of Thoreau’s preferred methods of living simply was to spend time in nature, which is a incredible coping tool for daily stress.
Simplifying your lifestyle can benefit your mental health immensely. By having or doing less, we free our minds to relax and obtain more enjoyment from what we do have. However you choose to spend National Simplicity Day, live today with the intention of experiencing life more mindfully in the moment.” Please follow the link on our bio for some additional tips on living more simply. 💆🏼♀️💆🏻♂️💚 #NationalSimplicityDay #LifeStyle #MentalWellness #MentalHealth #Mindfulness #SelfCare #Meditation #Counseling #LivingInTheMoment
