Hey guys I hope you are all having a great start to your SPRING!!
I love spring time, it’s my favorite season, despite all of the allergies! It gets me more revved up and motivated then the “New Year.” Spring time really is an awakening time for me. The weather is beautiful and the outside starts calling me! Yard work, cleaning out the garage, and really clearing out the excess is my kind of fun and soothes my soul.
Joey and I rearranged the garage just a bit and as we’re moving our shelving over I kept thinking “why am I keeping all of this?” Especially after I nearly broke my nose after a lid popped off a tub and I basically slugged myself in the face! It’s so freeing to just be able to “let go “and give it someone who can find more value in it.
Now you may be thinking, “What does this have to do with health and fitness?” Of course health and fitness isn’t all about lifting weights and eating right. Although we do have our FREE 4 week Spring Clean your Nutrition coming up, but hang tight for a moment.
I share this with you because I’ve received several comments on how much my minimalism journey has inspired them to be able to “think” about letting go. It can be mentally stressful holding onto so much stuff. I watched my mom for years accumulate an unimaginable amount of fabric, notions, patterns, items for others, and collectables. She wasn’t a hoarder by any means but she did have a scarcity mindset.
“I may need this JUST IN CASE.”
When the time came to find an item for a project, it would often take a few hours to remember where she put it. It would stress her out! For me, it made me claustrophobic and a huge sense of anxiety to be in the middle of it all.
It’s literally taken me 2 years just to go through mom’s things. For a loved ones items, it really depends but you have to go at your own pace. When it comes to our belongings the process is much faster.
Where do we start? The top 3 tips that helped me:
It's important to me where this all goes. Mom used to donate to a Women's Coalition Group and have continued with that. We’ve donated to family, to her church, and even to other local charitable organizations. Donating to Savers or Goodwill doesn’t provide the same value as it does like the others. If that’s important to you as well, check out other local organizations you can donate.
Coming up: Spring clean your Nutrition!
Join me for this accountability spring cleaning for your nutrition.
This is absolutely FREE and all online for the next 4 weeks beginning Monday April 17th.
If you need to spring clean your nutrition, contact us and I’ll add you to the accountability group.
This is not a quick weight loss challenge, fat loss contest, or high stress get in shape fast program. That’s not what we’re about and if you’re looking for that, we’re not the right fit for you.
We’re simply cleaning up what we’re eating, learning and establishing some healthy habits and having the accountability to see it through. I’ll be in the trenches with you for these next 4 weeks and I’ll be looking forward to seeing you in the group!
