Simplify – Things are easier that way

A Note From Dr. Beverly Nelson, Director

“So much to do”. “So much stuff”. “Too much clutter”. “So many things to take care of, and so few hours in the day!” Does this ring a bell?

Dr. Beverly Nelson (Photo: Michael Amici)Humans are natural accumulators. We store tokens, mementos, clothes, devices, memories, even feelings and thoughts. We need all of those, in some measure, to keep us grounded and remind us who we are, and where to call home. We need to make each place our own, and we need to feel comfortable in our own skin. However, sometimes we become oppressed by all that: it means the time has come to get rid of the clutter, so we can feel like ourselves again – light-footed, happy, and free.

While many people wait until Spring to do this (whether it’s getting rid of the clutter at home, or doing some soul-searching to see if our heart and spirit are in the right place), I think it should be a daily habit. Within a single day, we can accumulate so many things, so many emotions – do we really need to hang onto all that? The beautiful and positive, absolutely! But how about holding onto grudges, to pointless tasks, to negative thoughts, or perhaps just to that fruit bowl we have always hated, or that dish sponge that is begging for a replacement? Get on with it and throw away, eliminate, remove, replace – simplify it! Your whole life will be transformed – trust me!

How do you get rid of clutter (of any kind)? I’m always interested in hearing from you at
