If you are having a really hard time emotionally with donating/trashing/recycling something that no longer belongs in your life, try selling it instead.

"My sense is that consumers become less exercised over the moral dimensions of what ultimately happens to discards when they dispose of them via commercial transactions.” – Adam Minter

Happy Discardia!

Where is the friction that most directly impacted your life over the past month?

Turn your attention for the next 12 days to improving things in that area.

Just one common example:

Bad or insufficient sleep? Take a break from devices in the bedroom, step away from online/TV distractions for an earlier bedtime, and make your bedroom space as calm as possible.

Give yourself twelve days of gently nudging your world in the direction of better wherever you need it most.

(And while we're on the topic, today would be a great day to put in that request to take September 20th off. You should join the strike whether they approve it or no—if your circumstances allow—but maybe you can get the schedule change without friction by asking this far in advance. theguardian.com/commentisfree/ )

Refusing to do some things sets you free to do what you really want or need to do.

What would you say to cheer, warn, and teach the person you used to be? What would the older and wiser version of you say to you now?

With a magic wand, what would you eliminate from your life and what would you add?"

Steer a small amount of your daily time toward improving your situation.

Pause and see what pressure needs to be relieved.

Is this a touchstone for the life you want to be living?

Get rid of one thing that makes you feel cruddy right now. One thing, today.

The act of deciding what we will do is how we construct our selves.

You deserve a clean and pleasant home that restores and empowers you.

Is there anything you need to give yourself permission to stop caring about?

Tweak your world incrementally in the direction of excellent.

What could you eliminate in order to create the open space you need?

Put together the pieces of the whole you want to make.
