Living The Simplified Life: Saying Yes To Less In 2022
When: Friday, Jan. 28, 11 a.m.
Where: Zoom, register here
In our over-scheduled, over-connected, over-achieving world, we’ve bought the lie they’ve sold us that “we can do it all”. They’ve convinced us that we need to do more, have more and be more. We’re so weighed down that we often miss what’s really, truly important in our lives. Do you feel held back and burdened by too much stuff but don’t know where to start? Do you have years of stuff you’re holding onto from the past, and loads of things you’re stockpiling for the future? Is the concept of leaner, freer living something you’re curious about? In this interactive program with Professional Organizer Eileen Kelly Reed, you will: (1) consider the impacts of clutter in every part of your life (there’s WAY more than you think!); (2) explore our belief systems around what’s ‘enough;’ (3) examine the benefits of a quest for less; and (4) learn proven strategies you can use to simplify your life.
