Summer is a great time to try out living a simpler life. Things are slower, schedules are looser and you have time to reflect on the lifestyle you're living. Check out some tips for how to live a simpler life after the jump.

I could have made a huge list of steps, because goodness knows there are a lot of ways to simplify your life. But for the sake of simplicity I purged it down to the top ten. In no particular order, here are my 10 steps to live a simple life:
- Purge things you do not need and use. If it has been sitting in a box for weeks, months, or even years get rid of it. If it sets gathering dust on a shelf, get rid of it. If it doesn’t fit, get rid of it.
- Put a limit on media. That means TV, computer, and even your cellphone. The fewer electronics you use, the simpler things will be.
- Create a routine. From a cleaning routine to a work routine, setting a specific schedule and sticking to it will make things far more simple than jumping around haphazardly.
