Clear your space, clear your mind is BACK to help you ease into fall and winter with better health, improved decision-making capacity and...nicer-looking home and work spaces! Clutter not only clogs up our homes and work spaces, it clogs up our minds. It's time to clear out, clean up and make space for new, exciting things and thoughts! We'll start small: we will get rid of one (1) thing per day. Just one is enough, but if you find yourself inspired, by all means, don't stop at one. What do we do with the stuff? Donate, recycle, give away, throw away. But you must get ONE THING out of your space per day -- setting it aside for recycling isn't enough, it needs to be put into a recycling bin or taken to a donation center, or physically handed over to the person to whom you intend to be its future owner. Share your throw-outs (recycled, donated or otherwise): expired medicine, clothes you just don't wear, books someone else will make better use of, receipts from 2003...the possibilities are endless. And they should no longer be in your house. Photos posted by some team members were especially inspirational to me last time! Focus on this: keep things that make you feel good, get rid of things that make you feel bad. Doubts? Let the rest of the group help you decide! Want some reading material to help you along? This challenge was very, if not wholly inspired by Gail Blanke's Throw Out Fifty Things, and Karen Kingston's Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui. In fact, in honor of Gail's super motivating power, the challenge will last 51 days: 1 day for every thing, plus one more for good luck (you know, like birthday candles). So let's get to it...what will you get rid of today?
Join a team or create your own! There are lots of teams on Social Workout, and each gets its own page. A team can participate in
any challenge as long as at least one team member joins the challenge, and the challenge host adds the team to the challenge.
