It’s easy and enticing for most folks to get into a routine. In fact, finding a good routine can be the key to success for many of us. Get up, get ready, go to work, hit the gym, cook dinner, go to bed, rinse and repeat.
But what happens when you get so used to your routine that you start to feel like you’re just going through the motions? There are so many things we feel like we have to do on any given day that it can often begin to feel like everything is a chore.
Even the things we once loved can be reduced to items on a to-do list, and your whole life becomes about checking boxes.
That’s no way to live! While we aim to declutter our lives this month, I challenge you to declutter your mind as well. Take a few moments to remember the things you love about the items on your to-do list: The serenity of a completely focused mind during a WOD… The comforting feeling of financial security that your job provides… The joy of being a part of a community…
Take a moment to become “fully engaged” in your life so it doesn’t pass you by.
How’s this month’s challenge treating you? GO ON. Get rid of something every day. So far this month I cleaned out two email inboxes, my t-shirt shelf AND my car. It felt great. Not convinced? Check out these reasons for reducing clutter in your life.
