5 WAYS TO RADICALLY SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE IN KEY WEST!Every few years, we come to some spiritual “checkpoints” in our lives, and it’s time to take stock of what is working and what isn’t. These crossroads can be instigated by a life change, like a breakup, or a move, or a new job, or even a landmark birthday. And sometimes, they come from something as simple as waking up in the morning and saying “It’s time for a little life housecleaning!”
When we hit a spiritual checkpoint, we can ignore it and carry on as usual…or we can take inventory of our lives and so some soul-cleansing and simplifying.
Doing this is best done when you can step back from the daily grind, and not just catch your breath, but enjoy taking some long, slow, relaxing breaths! Getting away from it all to clear your mind is so healthy, so why not come to the most beautiful island in the U.S., Key West? And why not have an AMAZING, time of your life doing it? Here’s how:

And when you feel that happen, you may not ever want to go back home!
3. Pack light
We are tellin’ the truth when we say you really don’t need much here. A pair of flip flops, a bathing suit, shorts, a couple tees, and your underwear (which, even in some bars here, is optional!). Seriously, do yourself a favor and bring as little as possible. Casual is a way of life here, and you will not need formal clothes. Even the nightlife is enjoyed in flip-flops by most.
