I had set a goal to do 365 Simplicity Tips in 2012…Woo hoo! I did it! Hopefully, you were able to get a few ideas that will help you simplify your life – at home, at work, in relationships, de-cluttering, having balance or any other possible area of life.
Moving forward in 2013, I’m starting with taking a little break! When writings pick back up in February, I’m thinking I will start sharing some auto-biographical, funny, sometimes political, thought-provoking essays I wrote awhile back. :-) I actually thought about putting them all in a book…which maybe I’ll still do someday…but in meantime, I’ll share a few here and there!
Take care all and have a happy January! Think warm thoughts!

So, in addition to helping you smell refreshed in the morning, showers can really help you with getting your day started! Not only are they essential for good hygiene and helpful for your health…
I know if I am starting to feel ill, oftentimes, a hot shower can make me feel better! If you’re having a hard time getting going in the morning, a shower can be that cue for you to wake up and put on your happy face for the rest of the world! It can also help you kick into productivity gear!
Tale a shower! For a multitude of reasons…it’s good for you!

Instead of noticing everything that someone is doing wrong tomorrow…
Make an effort tomorrow to compliment someone (or better yet, inform their supervisor on an awesome job) on something they are doing well!
It is much easier to see what isn’t going well, so you may need to take extra care in identifying something, but…guaranteed…it can make someone’s day to hear the positive!

Movies, music and books are great ways to lose yourself in another world! Not that I want to encourage someone to totally disengage from reality for any length of time, but periodically, it can be very refreshing and healing!
Allow yourself the freedom to not be productive for a bit…and just thoroughly enjoy a good movie, song or book!
Sometimes, taking the scenic route in life (a.k.a. “getting lost” for some) makes life much more enjoyable and interesting! Give it a shot as we are moving into the New Year!

While there are many lessons we can learn from our pets, the one I am reminded of today by my awesome toy poodle is… When people, life, work or whatever starts to get on your last nerve, remember to get up, shake it off and move forward! (In her case, it’s get up, shake it off and ask for a treat, but our situation may be a little different!)
Keep moving forward! Shake off the stress, anger, depression or whatever may be bogging you down today!
No really…try it! Stand up and shake off like you’re just trying to dry off from a shower without a towel! :-) LOL ! It may help!

As of late, I’ve been putting in lots of focus on the ending of a year and the beginning of a new chapter in our lives…today is no different! Part of the transition may include letting go of something/someone that may have been holding you back in 2012. It’s a lot easier and simpler to move into the new year if you have less baggage to carry! Time for some closure!
What is one thing – person, feeling, action, etc. – that has held you back in any way in 2012? What are you going to do to help you let go and move forward starting tomorrow?
