Different types of spaces have impact on the act of living.
Traveling comes to mind. Specifically, the distracting feeling when all of my stuff is jumbled up on itself, and it is hard to spread out.
It makes me appreciate the time I've spent in my home refining spaces, so they energize rather than distract.
The Pilates mat always unrolled, under the bed at the ready.
The arm band in the same cubby as my running shoes.
The lean pantry with all the staples for fueling and satisfying meals.
My space is all about the essentials that reflect who I am and inspire how I want to live.
Which leads me to this #DailyCupcake about Clutter that follows the Pilates principle of "centering". Depending on what you need in your day you can take:
Just a nibble: “The best for the most for the least.” Charles and Rae Eames
A few bites: What in your house isn’t pulling its weight for the needs of you and your family?
Every last bite: Walk through you house with a bin and pull down items that aren’t offering maximum value. Pack the items for a month, and if you don’t need them after a month, then donate.
