Critical-creative thinking is gateway to simple and happy life!
If you wish to lead a stress-free happy life, be a minimalist, advice great and wise men like Mahatma Gandhi, for whom, simple living and high thinking was the ultimate goal of life.

Gandhi ji had said, "There's enough on this planet for everyone's needs but not for everyone's greed" and had advised and practiced the precept "Live simply so that others may simply live."

In today's materialistic lifestyle, it is such a challenge to be simple. For being simple, Dean Koontz, proposes the following lifestyle: "Stay low, stay quiet, keep it simple, don't expect too much, enjoy what you have."

However, for simple living, high level creative-critical thinking is required. According to Victoria Moran, author of 'Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty' you can live simple life only when you're clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it's clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar.

According to motivational and inspirational speaker, "Life is truly beautiful in simplicity. When we lead a simple life we achieve an unknown happiness - a happiness that surpasses any other form of happiness." Here, the other form of happiness are the transitory  worldly  successes and gains. He also holds that the real life is lived in the moments of simplicity.

If one can vision and crystallize what is happiness, the management science says, it can be action planned and achieved or realised to be happy in life. As Mehmet Murat ildan puts it, "To realise the soothing power of simple life is to find the secret of happiness!"

So, mobilize your higher order, creative-critical thinking and vision a simple life to be planned and acted upon for its realization.
