Don't wait until the new year to create a new MINDSET. Use the FALL season to START FRESH.
New season. New school year. New you.
Part One. HOME.
“Outer Order, Inner Calm” by Gretchen Rubin has lots of FRESH HOME ideas...
-Abandon a project
-Toss unnecessary papers
-Do you need more than one: paper clips, rubber bands, crayons
-Beware of buying souvenirs
-Assign each day a task
-Stay current with child’s interests

Imagine your home is your favorite bed & breakfast
What does it FEEL like. Warm, fuzzy, clutter free...
Visualize that cozy space -
What can you do to create that FEELing in your own space?
Many of us have families and quite possibly kids to contend with, so it may take some family meetings and perhaps even a family boot camp to keep your HOME FEELing like your favorite bed & breakfast.
Being mindful of the way we FEEL is the first step in finding a way to create a space that FEELS peaceful!
