Packing light

It is generally understood that when you go alpine-style meaning you travel fast and light in the mountains, you are not going to carry all the comforts of life. In fact, you are carrying only what you need to survive. The least amount of gear to safely give you passage. When you strip away to the bare bones, you are now free to climb faster.

This mentality does not just apply to climbing but also how we approach our very lives.

Could you simplify your budget, the food you eat, and the relationships you put energy into? Could you cut TV time or how many times do you check your email? Do you really need social media (or does social media need you)?

When you simplify your life you will be surprised to discover how fast you can move.
