Spring Renewal

Spring renewal is also known as the second Happy New Year. I know January is long gone but in my world, spring is the time for renew, refresh, and new resolutions.

I’m not pointing fingers, but if you are in the same group as me, then this is our “do over”, a second chance, and this time, we literally have more time thanks to the longer days […]

If you’re interested in minimizing stuff in your life, you will probably want to know the secrets of tidy people as well. You’ve probably heard about the magical little book called “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Condo.

Minimalism: How to Clean Your Closet

Minimalism is liberating, freeing, and it seems like everyone is on a quest to live as simply as possible in one area of their lives these days. Collecting things we desire and love can bring a lot of happiness. When we get to pass these things down to our grandkids, they become heirlooms. But, sooner or later, we have to admit when we are just hoarding things. If you have kids, you’re probably hoarding toys whether you like it or not. If you don’t have kids, what’s your vice that you know you have to stop? With the housing market […]

How To Get Rid of Things That Annoy You

March is all about renewal. What better way to renew than to get rid of things that annoy you so you can live the month with a fresh perspective and a sense of energetic peace?

When people say “nothing’s perfect”, deep down inside, they do expect it to be perfect. It’s one of those subconscious psychological statements people make when they think they are indeed, perfect. But, for a lack of a better term, “nothing’s perfect”, so eventually someone somewhere will have to say sorry. Saying sorry and really meaning it can be a difficult thing to do. It’s sometimes admitting and accepting that you’re […]

5 Ways to Master Your Emotions

We all know emotions are a powerful entity. We use it to express ourselves, convey our feelings, and even as an outlet to exude our personalities. Something about February gets us emotional, be it the inception of the whole lovey-dovey expectation of Valentines or because Target has had hearts and candy out since Jan 1st. It’s a beast that many of us feel like we’ve tamed but then we lose the leash. We equate our wellness with being able to understand and control our emotions yet we unleash our emotions in the worst way when times get trying. Blame hormones, […]

Spending Less on Things & More on Experiences Makes You Happier

Before you keep reading, let us state that there is nothing absolutely wrong with engaging a little retail therapy for when you just need that new palette, shirt, lip balm, or shoes. We aren’t trying to make you live like monks here. Cutting through the righteous bird turd and talking about how we don’t need things to be happy is asinine. We are human and need the things because of the world we live in today. Holding something tangible in our hands just makes us happy. What we want to drive home here is that engaging in buying all the […]
