For 2022, my word of the year is less.
Less is more
less words, better chosen ones
less screen time, more life time
less money spent, more saved
less junk, more order
less hoping, more intentional planning and doing
less stuff, less clutter, more simple, open spaces
less waiting, more action
less multitasking, more prioritizing and focusing on one thing at a time.
less trying to do everything for everyone and more trying to do something for me.
In 2022, I will aspire to be less. Sounds counterintuitive. I have realized that I try to overcomplicate …well, everything. By doing less complicated things, I can focus more on the simple, wonderful gifts that are found all around me.
I can not take credit for this idea of word of the year… this comes from Gretchen Rubin, who co-hosts the Happier podcast. Hear more about the word of the year at her podcast here. Gretchen is the author of The Happiness Project and Outer Order, Inner Calm, among others.
