Working on simplifying your life can really help you reduce stress and enjoy more of the little things. According to recent research by Schick Intuition, the happiest mothers in Canada take active steps to simplify their lives.

750 moms across Canada were used to create the Schick Intuition Simplicity Curve below which shows a direct correlation between happiness and simplicity. The curve helps illustrate that happiness spikes when mothers take deliberate steps to make life more manageable, and embrace a philosophy of “voluntary simplicity.” In fact, the more moms say they embrace the “voluntary simplicity” lifestyle, the happier they are.


As a busy mom of two little boys I really like the idea of simplifying and avoiding unwanted stress. For example, I love when we spend time decluttering the house and getting rid of stuff we don’t need. Donating big bags filled with things we don’t need anymore always makes me happy.

Keeping on top of my e-mails and organizing our schedule with a calendar system that works for us also keep my routine running smoothly and as stress-free as possible. I can also plan my time wisely and get extra family time to spend with my two boys doing fun stuff.

Something else that makes my life easier is finding products or services designed to help simplify every day tasks. Saving precious time results in a happier me. For example, using the Schick Intuition three-in-one razor when I shower so I don’t need to prep, shave and moisturize helps simplify my life. I can finish my shower faster and get a couple of extra minutes to check my e-mail or drink my coffee while it is still hot.
