The Fresh Perspective...

Freshair Boutique

March is upon us and Marie Kondo Netflix special is fired up and ready to play. The best way to start out a new month - especially when exiting the winter blues - is to PURGE! Take some time this weekend to go through your clothes, knick-knacks & all things that are collecting dust or do not serve you any purpose. If you don’t have time to watch the hottest show right now, let me summarize some tips to get you on the fast track to ultimate organization & peacefulness. (You’re welcome). Disclaimer: I may or may not abide by these rules…

Step 1: Make sure everything has a place

Ok, this I can get behind. Nothing is more frustrating that not being able to find something you just put away the day before. Make sure everything has a place and if you can’t find one, maybe you don’t really need it.

Step 2: Get rid of papers

Makes sense. Papers, like old bills, pile up very quickly, many of which you really don’t need at the end of the day. Pull out the shredder!

Step 3: Don’t pile things - store vertically instead

This will make everything easier to find! Extra ambitious? Colour code as well!

Step 4: Only keep items of clothing that bring you joy

Sure? I mean, I guess most of my crew neck t-shirts don’t really bring me too much joy but I still wear them all the time. I’m not too sure about this rule or how to follow this rule… Just get rid of clothes you don’t wear after 6 months to a year (season permitting of course).

Step 5: Keep small change in your wallet

UMM, I disagree! I recommend throwing your small change into a piggy bank because there will come a time when you have some free time and you get to have the joy of organizing & counting all of your coins and small bills. Then, what to do with that money? Treat yourself! I feel so passionate about this one point because I just had a nice little surprise pay day this past weekend when I decided to count mine ;) Thermea here I come.

Let’s just be NICE.

A New Year can be looked at as a way to start fresh or gain a new outlook. Sometimes, all the things that are happening in this world can really start to weigh you down. They can make you feel like there's few good, genuinely nice people left. BUT, let me stop you there! Take a minute to think about how many amazing people that are in your life, or people you've spent time with throughout your life. Or even how many times a stranger has done something so small, but made you smile.

Let's make a point of being nice, friendly people. If something happens to you where you feel angry, take a minute to think about it and realize it's not worth wasting your energy over. For example, how many times when driving do you feel anger creep up on you when someone cuts you off or is driving 20 kms under the speed limit? (Or, is that just me...). It's not worth wasting energy on things you cannot control. Maybe that driver is having a bad day. You just never know what's going on in someone else's life. Being nice to that stranger, friend, family member, may just make the biggest difference in their day.

A new thing I am looking forward to trying out is random acts of kindness. I want to buy the coffees for the car behind me in a drive thru, send flowers to my mom just to say thank you, I want to donate to a shelter and help those in need.

Let’s make the world a better place, one random act of kindness at a time!
