Downsizing Relics Past and Present - Go Forward Downsize

Downsizing Relics Past and Present - Go Forward Downsize | Organizing and Downsizing a home | Scoop.it
Keeping relics because we believe they will keep someone with us is not a good reason to hold onto things. Evaluate what memorabilia means to you and let go of anything that doesn't fit your criteria.
Moreen Torpy's insight:

Are you holding on to things from your past that hold you there? Sar Wars memorabilia? Old sports gear? A wedding dress from a marriage gone bad decades ago? School resources and you've long since retired from teaching? Move into the present and on to the future by letting all this go and enjoy a happier life.

How to Free Your Mind: 15 Decluttering Tips

How to Free Your Mind: 15 Decluttering Tips | Organizing and Downsizing a home | Scoop.it

"Men are not prisoners of fate, but prisoners of their own minds"  -Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

The world of stresses, worries, errands, projects, noise that we must all endure inflicts upon us a mind full of clutter and chaos.

A mind that sometimes cannot find the calm that we so desperately seek. If anything needs decluttering, it’s our minds, I think — but it’s also a daunting task. How do you declutter a mind? It’s not as if thoughts are just laying around, waiting for you to pick through them, finding the ones that should be kept and those that are ripe for the donation box. The mind isn’t like an inbox, that can be sorted through and acted upon.

Trying to lose a few pounds?  If your kitchen is organized it is far easier to cook a healthy meal for yourself and your family!!


Psychologist Meredith Fuller agrees: "If you have to clean up before you prepare a meal, you're far more likely to opt for takeaway."
