- If doesn’t fit get rid of it. Dress for the size you are now.
- If you don’t love it, use it or it doesn’t serve you on any level get rid of it.
- If there are rips, tears, missing buttons, broken zippers get rid of it.
- If it’s uncomfortable, itchy get rid of it. This goes for shoes too.
- If it was a gift and you don’t like it get rid of it! It was given to you. You get to decide what to do with the gift. It has nothing to do with the giver.
- Lastly how does it make you feel when you have it on? Do you feel special? Does it make you want to go out and have a good time? If the answer is no, get rid of it!
- One more thing don’t attach a dollar amount to the item. Just let it go.
1. Happy Jar: a dedicated to good things that happen to you throughout the year. At the end of the year you open it up and look at how good your life is. I really can’t think of better way to realize how grateful we should/could be than going through your Happy Jar at the end of the year. Sure some people are blessed with the ability to wake each morning with a smile on their face and be in that moment. I don’t happen to one of those people. Because when the alarm goes off at 4:45 am, I’m really not all that happy or grateful. It’s all I can do to get up wash my face, brush my teeth, put my gym clothes on and get out the door.
“I can’t help it! I was born to procrastinate.” That was the statement I heard when talking with a new client about a week ago.
So I asked her, “Are you happy with your procrastination? Does it serve you well?”
“No!” she exclaimed. “That is why I called you. I’m missing important deadlines and my coworkers and family are fed up with me.”
Do these statements resonate with you? If so, then keep reading. You can overcome procrastination if you learn a few simple secrets. Sometimes procrastination (putting an activity off until a later date) is necessary — like when a higher priority item comes up that you have to work on. However, if procrastination becomes a habit, trouble often follows. Start by understanding that there is nothing genetically or inherently wrong with you. So far, scientists have not found a procrastination gene! That is good news because it means it is a habit you can kick.
