Excerpted from Stress Is a Choice by David Zerfoss
Reduce the Numbers“You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.” ~Vernon Howard

In this world of instant gratification and unlimited choices, we often find ourselves surrounded by mountains of things – furniture, knick-knacks, toys (for children and adults), tools, clothes and so on. Are all these things bringing us real joy and happiness or prohibiting us from seeing what really matters? It’s amazing what simple rules we can re-learn when we open our eyes to children at play.
Looking back on your early childhood, what intrigued and interested you?
As adults, we often find ourselves acquiring more and more things for ourselves and our children – whether it’s the next great video game, cell phone, computer, or the latest, hot new toy. As we add more and more material things into our lives, we often forget not only what’s most important, but also what it feels like to be childlike – to truly experience life in the moment and therefore be more carefree.
When we focus on what really matters, on what we and our children really “need,” life becomes a whole lot simpler – and something as simple as a dirt pile suddenly becomes a whole lot of fun again!

Some Questions to Ask Yourself:
• How much is enough?
• Where and what can you de-clutter in your life?
• Got dirt?
“Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.” ~Edwin Way Teale
