End of winter starkness also speaks of simplicity, and encourages us to think of how we can simplify our lives:
We can de-clutter our houses. I am not a minimalist by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s good to go through the house at this time of the year and get rid of surplus: the clothes we’ll never wear, the books we’ll never read, the excess stuff that lurks in corners.
We can fast from the TV, the internet, our I-phones. We can turn off the machines, the background music and just be for a bit.
We can simplify our diaries: cut out the things which make our lives whirlwinds? Are the things we spend our energy on really important?
