“If you want to improve your life immediately, clean out a closet. Often it’s what we hold onto that holds us back.” –Cheryl Richardson
“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” —John C. Maxwell
It’s TWOSday again which means it’s TJ and it’s time to ask ourselves some questions. Over dinner I asked Amalia to give me questions to write about so I will be answering hers this week. So let’s talk about cleaning closets and daily routines, spoiler alert, cleaning my closet is not part of my daily routine.
Q1: When is the last time you went through your closet?
Yesterday. That was easy, next question. It is important in our decluttering journey to get rid of unnecessary stuff. A big part of this is making sure we don’t hold onto clothes or items that just take up space in a closet. We have been looking into places to bring some of the items for donations and the local Keystone Mission said they are in need of clothes. That’s why we love talking about this, if we don’t need an item nor use an item, there are others out there who do need it. Giving this item away helps us by decluttering our lives and helps others who can find value from the items.
Q2: Do you think about your daily routine?
I think about my daily routine all time. Nothing bothers me more lately than a wasted day so I try to add as much value as I can into my daily routine without overwhelming myself. Forming good habits can go a long way such as writing a daily blog, eating healthy, getting to the gym, reading at night, and consistently getting enough sleep. It’s simple really and that’s the beauty of it, there is no reason to make a daily routine complex. The best way to obtain your goals is by making them achievable and by working on them everyday. Even if I don’t hit every goal, I make sure to hit one of them because it’s still something to build off of. One small step towards the right way will still lead you to where you want to be.
Item 033 of 360+
Today’s item is another pair of jeans that I found cleaning out my closet recently. This is one of the items the Keystone Mission is currently requesting so it’s a good time to part with jeans I no longer wear.
