Thanks for stopping by my blog- The Simple Life Simplified! My name is Karen, and I started this blog based on my own journey of discovering how to live a more natural, simple, and balanced life.
I completely believe that having a sustainable and earth-friendly lifestyle is really important- but so is keeping our sanity. A few years ago, I became overwhelmed with the endless list of what it meant to live ‘all-naturally’.
Eat all the right stuff (more kale!), do this, don’t do that, make everything from scratch, buy organic or die! Seriously though, I’m not saying any of those are bad principles to live by, but the list just keeps going on and on until simple living isn’t simple anymore.
I’ve since recovered from going off the deep-end, and now I’m ready to help people (like you) balance the desire to live more consciously with the need for common sense and the realization that you don’t have to do it all. (Really!)
A truly simple and all-natural lifestyle should be one you enjoy, not one that keeps you overwhelmed and exhausted trying to keep up with everyone else who seems to be doing it better. I hope I can be a part of helping you to find that lifestyle!
P.S. Now that I’ve given up on trying to raise sheep, spin their wool, and make my own clothes, I actually have some spare time. I usually spend it reading, trying new herbal recipes, listening to The Piano Guys, or hanging out with my two dogs.
