The last days of a year are great for reflecting on the past and thinking about the future. During this time, I like to ask myself a series of queries to help me draft resolutions and to help me remember the good things from the last 12 months. I noticed yesterday that a few of these questions are related to organizing, and thought you might be interested in them as well.
- What areas or chores in my home constantly weighed on me or caused me stress? What did I do to alleviate these frustrations? If I did nothing, why not, and what can I do to prevent these distractions in the future?
- Is my home filled with only things that make my life easier/happier/better/safer? Are these objects in their best places? Can I get rid of any objects that cause frustration, disappointment, or are unsafe?
- Was my home a place to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate? Was my home welcoming to friends and family? Was there anything I did or didn’t do that caused my home to be stressful or uninviting? What can I do to ensure that my place is relaxing, comfortable, and the best place for me to rejuvenate my body and mind?
I hope you all had wonderful 2010s and that 2011 will be your best year yet. Happy New Year!
