The “2011 Get-It-Together Handbook” (mentioned in my previous post) in the Real Simple magazine (January 2011) contains some great, easy to implement changes for a healthier and simpler life. I thought that several were very interesting and I wanted to share them with you:
- Get rid of five files from your filing cabinet.
- Do two yoga poses.
- Call your dad (or mom or brother or sister).
- Shred something, anything.
- Cancel one appointment that you really don’t want to keep.
Here a few of my suggestions to add to that list of easy changes to make:
- Clear your kitchen sink and counter top.
- Read one joke or cartoon.
- Clean out your purse or just your wallet.
- Journal for 10 minutes.
- Relocate your shredder to a place near the door or area where you bring in and/or sort your mail.
The bottom line is that it is easy to get overwhelmed and say you don’t have time to get organized, clutter-free or healthier. Yet if you make small changes that are achievable (changing those daily practices) you will create balance and add to your happiness.
So pick one thing. I am going to do two yoga poses today. What did you pick?
