Are you busy with social activities all day? Do you have something that you want to do,but just don't have time to do? Time flies,is no longer busy, what do we live for? Appropriately busy is good,but on the contrary too busy is deleterious.It's time to give up unnecessary busy and return to the simple life.Learn to relax and be easy.Drop vanity,we will be happy,put down the burden,enjoy life ,you will find out the different scenery.

I am dreaming of staying in a house made of natural materials in the middle of a rice field. With the garden full of flowers and having a simple life. That is just a dream, actually, with my present job, there is no way for life to be simple. Life for me is complicated and I have to deal with it and learn to live with it.

I don't have much social life but I am busy everyday. As busy as I am, with not enough time to relax, yet I am still enjoying life and I am happy. I live simply yet I have all that I need. I have my share of burdens, I have my ups and downs, I experience pains and worries that come with being a parent, but still I love the life I live with all the trimmings that come with it. My life is far from perfect, I am far from perfect but I am contented with what God has blessed me with, and I am very thankful for all of these.:)

It is better to live in a simple life than living in a luxurious life.

Getting old is different. One needs to relax and breath fresh air. I would rather live at the country side and raise range chicken for our own consumption as well as the native breed pig whose meat is real tasty. Just don't feed them w/ the commercial feeds but vegetables and table scrap...

Time does fly and a lot of the time it feels like I'm basically just working to survive--eat, sleep, work and the cycle continues. I know this is something I can change by persuing other career opportunities so I can't really complain. I can't wait to do some traveling and raise a family, I think that will feel so rewarding.

Now I am living a simple life already I think.Except my work time,I can do everything I want to do.I feel happy.After graduation I choose to live in a small city and there is no so much pressure.And most important I can spend a lot of time with my friends and go travelling.I know I gave up something but I do know I get more happiness.

I have been very busy in the past week or so because I had a lot of things that I had to sort out with my life. Today though, I have had the chance to be able to calm down a little bit and just take things easy for a change. I am enjoying doing so, and I think that the simple life is something that too many people think is boring. I think that being able to just sit back and do some simple things that you enjoy is something that you should never take for granted, because there are too many people who don't get the chance to do this.

I agree with your poin that be simple, relax and make life easier. But in this competitive world everyone are working to hard to contribute their knowledge something for a nation. But being simple is allocate time for yourself everyday to make you remember that you also an human being not the machine to work always and thinking or brushing your mind/brain always. Live your life healthier by making you as simple and be relax for a while after you are office/working hours. Give your time to the nature, it will take care of you. Happy & Healthy living.. :)

Nice words. I agree to your point of view. We are so much use to heavy torturing life style that now simple things seem very unusual to us. We should have a habit,rather a good habit of taking some time for ourselves. Time for things which give us happiness, satisfaction. Things away from glittering gold or ocean of money. A person often is regarded successful if he is happy from within.

Since i'm working alone in different city,so i do not have too much social activities.Maybe it's good to have more time staying at home,no matter doing what to enjoy your life,remember to be happy and gratitude.Everything seems perfect.

We do feel the burden of the activities on our shoulders some day or the other realizing there is less time that we can give to ourselves.I have felt the same way and from that day i decided to set aside some time in a day where i will be with only myself.It's really relaxing.

I have returned to the simple life some time ago - but then I am much older than you and do not need all the angst of a 40 or 50 year old when it comes to relationships and problems. Because of my simplicity I am happy every day, thank God for a new day, and happy just to be alive. I do what I want at the moment, eat what I want, go where I desire, and if I want to stay in bed all day reading or writing I can do that too. I take on nothing that requires a deadline. That is my secret and I have worked hard to achieve it.
