Midway Simplicity Tips of The Week: Sunset, Happiness, Meditation and More

I am so thrilled by the unbelievable growth of our community. Midway Simplicity is now receiving over 46,000 awesome monthly visitors!

Thank you so much for making all this possible. You’re my source of inspiration and encouragement. Your engagement, emails and comments mean a lot to me.

Now, let’s get into this week’s simplicity tips:

  1. Walk at sunset.
  2. Don’t heal your pain with food.
  3. Remember, you won’t find happiness by having the new of everything. Instead, you’ll be happy when you enjoy everything you have as if it is new.
  4. Don’t depend on your possessions to make you whole.
  5. Start meditating for 5 minutes per day.
  6. Be honest with yourself. You should consider simplifying, if you don’t have enough money to sustain your current lifestyle.
  7. Everything you own takes part from your time and energy. Own less to enjoy what matters.
  8. To start simplifying, do the smallest action that doesn’t disturb your normal lifestyle. For example, get rid of just one item everyday. It is important to start SMALL — VERY SMALL.
  9. When you’re receiving guest visitors, don’t over cater.
  10. There is no need to overstock anything.

I’m currently preparing to launch a new e-course about connecting with important people on my other blog Transformational Motivation. The e-course will be officially live on September 18th.

After the launch, I will focus on finishing the Midway Simplicity book. In this book, you’ll find all the tips and insights shared by the simple living legends featured in the Midway Simplicity Show.

Again, thanks for being part of our wonderful community.

    Walking at sunset and meditating for 5 minutes a day are my favorite. Maybe I should branch out and focus on some of the others.

      I’m fascinated by Yoga and meditation. I need to practice them more.

    Very Quality techniques are used here for meditation. I like these techniques even I tried these techniques and found lot of benefits. During my meditation experience, I felt myself in a totally different world.
    Really very effective techniques..

      That’s great. Effective meditation can fill your life with clarity and inner peace.

    Thanks for the great tips! I would say the one for me to work on would be #9.

    • Mohamed Tohami September 13, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

      Point #9 is very critical. We need to find the balance (or the midway) between our desire of being generous and welcoming to our visitors and our tendency to over cater to look good and rich.

    I would like to add another item…
    Stay screen-free for as long as you can, even if you can only do it for 24 hrs and try to find joy in the sound of silence. It will help to clear your heart, mind, and soul.

      What a great tip Ola. We need a long screen fast, to regain balance and peace in our lives.

    Love your tips of the week. I would second Ola’s comment about staying screen free. I call it a “news fast” from television news shows, newspapers and news online. I do this frequently and it is very refreshing for the body, mind and spirit. And, how about walk at sunset and/or walk in nature even if it is only in your backyard? Awakening your senses and connecting with Mother Earth so to speak!

    • Mohamed Tohami September 14, 2012 at 9:48 am #

      Yes, the word refreshing resonates with me. It is very refreshing indeed. When we connect with nature, we connect with our core of being humans.

    Just found your blog. What a great list. My addition would be to nourish your body, and find that in turn you nourish your soul.

    • Mohamed Tohami September 14, 2012 at 8:50 pm #

      I’m so glad you found your way to the blog. Welcome on board :) You’re absolutely right. When we take care of our bodies, we take care of our emotions and spirits too.

    Over 46,000 monthly visitors? I’m not surprised. You’ve developed a really good blog, Mohamed.

    Lots of great advice in these tips.

      Thank you so much Geraldton. What a great note of encouragement :) You made my day!

    We did this last year for a baby shower. It was a nuacital theme and a huge success. I will try to send you photos. Although, I have to say it was funny and sad at the same time. We bought a huge amount of gold fish a day or two before the event. Who knew that you had to condition the water before you put the fish in it because of the amount of chlorine and minerals in tap water. So we had many fatalities on our hands and had to scramble to buy more right before the event. You live and learn.

    I think its brilliant -walking at sunset – gives you time to reflect. For some its tough to quiet the mind during meditation but I find that a nice walk gives me some clarity and relaxes my mind. I tend to be a very active individual who finds it hard to just sit down, quiet my thoughts and quiet my body enough to enjoy and give gratitude to the simple things in life. A nice walk feels like a beautiful transition to the practice of meditation.
