Prune in January for a happy year
This year think beyond your clutter and stuff. Look at your to-do lists, your calendar and your expectations for the new year.
Think Less Is More and Start Pruning!
How do you want to feel this time next year? How do you want to feel next December? I doubt I'm alone, when I look at my calendar and see it fill up with no space - no breathing space. I feel myself tighten.
We all need space to play, to create, to rest, to just be
If you want your new year to shine, first clear the clutter in your time and schedule. Find little spaces just for you. I realize this is easier said than done. Life can take you on some wild rides. But no matter what ride you are on, we all need a little space to just be.
This space doesn't need to be grand vacations or weeks of nothing. Maybe the healthiest practices are creating space everyday... 15 minute recesses, 30 minute nap time, 5 minutes to breathe, a walk in the woods, going to bed early just because.
Here is the pay off...
Your nervous system is nourished by play and rest
When you are happy and at ease you are naturally more creative intelligent, resilient, healthier, flexible.
When you are stressed the exact opposite is true.
By giving yourself bits of time and space to just be, to play, to create and rest you will not only be giving yourself a huge gift but you will also be gifting everyone around you.
Here's to another new year!
And here's to creating a year that is well pruned with space to grow
