My friend Chris sent me an interesting article from RealAge. I think they have been reading my blogs or my book because the suggestions for clearing clutter is what I chat about every day and what I wrote about and show how to do my book.
I didn’t know this: “Not completing nagging unfinished tasks can make your RealAge 8 years older”. I’m not so sure my taking care of 6 tasks yesterday I have had on my to do list for awhile has made me 48 years younger. I do know that getting rid of clutter (in that little drawer I showed last week and a couple more I will show you later) does make me feel lighter and certainly happier.
I was just saying to my neighbor I am on a roll getting clutter out of my drawers. I finished a quilt my daughter had mostly made (that was in a sack in a drawer in the armoire) and I am sewing on the binding to finish it. It is a great feeling knowing I have space in that drawer now and she has a beautiful quilt. I have been going around shouting Hurrah.
Getting rid of clutter can make us younger—or at least not older according to RealAge and I want to believe that. What do you believe?
