attempting to live frugally it is important not
to do this from a mental place of lack - 'I can't
have this' or 'can't do that' attitudes will not
help you. Having lots of 'things' was never going
to make you happy anyway - often people find that
when they start living more simply they replace
all the running about spending with happiness!
(of course you can still have things - you just
won't pay so much for them) Many writers have
written about the spiritual laws of abundance and
positive thinking - two of our favourites are at
the side >
things you can do to develop an abundance
attracting and happy state of mind:
Count your blessings - a cliche but so true - be
thankful for all the good you have in your life -
the most important blessings are not always the
big shiny ones :)
Expect the best (can be difficult to keep up!!) -
haven't you noticed how people who are always
pessimistic and moaning keep having bad
experiences and lots of bad luck? There's a
reason - whatever you focus on most is what you
attract to you - let it be good stuff! Let your
mind dwell on the things you love.
Don't let frugallity make you mean - you can be
generous without being wasteful - what goes
around comes around.
Be nice to yourself - you deserve it - give
yourself little treats whether it's a glass of
wine, a bath with candles and essential oils or
an hour in the sun with a book - it doesn't have
to be a mad shopping spree. In fact frequent
over-spending is often the result of some deep
emotional unhappiness - the spending won't cure
Practices like meditation, walks in the country
and yoga help to keep you centered and calm.
Don't beat yourself up if you fall off the wagon
- whether it's with positive thinking or being
frugal - forgive yourself and move on.
