Modern life is too complex to not simplify as much as possible. This means, creating finding patterns and creating routines that allow for repetitive processes that simplify your life. For example, a friend of mine pays all his bills once a month, which means that he only opens his mail once a month. Another friend consolidated all of his bank accounts to one bank. Another person I know consolidated all of his credit cards to one card. I just dumped all but one personal email address and am about to go to one consolidated phone number. Imagine if you did all of these actions how much easier life would be for you.
