Glossy magazine built on the principle of the screen - see the plane, where everything is deployed in a surface shaped side. Principles of information processing is only to simplify - in pursuit of profitability, save time, energy and money.

An example of a simplified view of life: "The modern woman lives in three speeds: fast, faster, faster. And so a nervous breakdown. But the hectic pace can be reduced - without damage to himself or others.

Discard ballast. Do not worry: give up too much - does not mean to be selfish or irresponsible to leave so that you dearly. You are only exempt from things that do not contribute to your life and take time from what you really need. Initially, you will certainly be tortured by guilt. After waiting around on your previous behavior and can clearly make you understand that you have changed. Of course, not for the better - from their point of view. Do not succumb to provocation: tell yourself that this waiver will allow you free time for something really important, what you've always dreamed of.

  Work. Revise your schedule - is it always necessary to stretch the working day for 10-12 hours? Outsource routine functions of the technical staff.

  Family. Spend time with people with whom you feel comfortable and pleasant. But consciously restrict communication with grumpy cousin or uncle-grouch.

  House. Avoid daily global harvest, distribute the duties among the family. If there is financial capacity, hire au pair. It is better to pay for the cleanup, but spend a day with your family.

  Friends. It makes sense to abandon long conversations with friends on the phone - better communicate less, but live, combining the meeting with a pleasant and useful: a walk in the park or meeting in a cozy cafe.

  Children. Limit electives for children under two at most. This will simplify life for you and your child. Give him the opportunity to choose on their liking.

  Hobby. Many of us have a whole list than I would like to do. Yoga, photography, hang gliding - all very interesting, but not both. Include common sense: for example, hang gliding is costly not only time but also money, and fish can not exist without constant cleaning aquarium. It is better to choose one thing.

  Social Life. Avoid these cases, unless they do not relate to very important issue for you.

  Internet and computer. Check your mail and LJ is not more than twice a day, set a good spam filter. "
