Zen

This is totally my new favorite website. I have spent the past few weeks poring over page after page.

It's been helping me with simplifying, decluttering my apartment, thinking more positively, and exercise.

Now I can actually walk into my walk-in closet, and I can see and reach all my clothes. With the help of my roommate, my living room finally looks like a living room and not a storage room. I'm trying to adopt a minimalist attitude about things, which coordinates nicely with my minimal funds. I love the lack of clutter that I'm starting to see in my apartment, it makes a huge difference.

And today I start a 30 day challenge for myself to exercise every day. Just a little, even to just walk Max around the block, I'm going to do SOMETHING every single day.

I'm also spending a few minutes (like ten) every day organizing a small section of my apartment, which keeps me from being overwhelmed by a large project.

This is where to start with the website if you're interested.

It interesting how we feel when we relieve ourselves from the burdens of "stuff"

I've been working on it for a year off and on, and I know I feel much better now that I don't have to keep up with much. And it felt good throwing stuff away, giving stuff to charity, and passing stuff down.

now if only I can get the gumption to do something about the stuff on my hips and butt!

Excellent ideas, one and all. I need to take a page from your book. Clearing the clutter helps clear the mind and cleanse the soul.

I haven't heard of that website, but I need to check it out. I've also been doing some decluttering too. It is quite freeing,isn't it? We really don't need half of what we have to live full, rich lives.

I hope you do well on the exercise. I go through phases where I'm really motivated to exercise (mostly walk), and then just as quickly as it comes, the desire and motivation leaves me. Completely. Like today. When I'm on the computer most of the day (hence, sitting on my big fat butt!) :) Let us know how you're doing!
