At a talk I gave the other night 1 of the women shared a quick strategy that she used to employ to clear kitchen clutter. She told our group that if someone was stopping by to visit with little notice she would put everything on her counters into the oven! Of course, my first thought was, did she remember to take it out before dinner?
Well after a good laugh we actually had a conversation about how good it feels when horizontal spaces are clear. I like to remind people that “Spacious Living” is a choice.
We can choose to downsize our stuff.
We can choose to designate a place for everything.
We can choose to return everything to its place.
We can choose to make time to create the space that makes us feel calm and focused.
