We all dream about the day we can turn our lives into an endless vacation. But scientists have actually proven that as much as this fantasy lives in our mind, we probably wouldn’t enjoy it too much if it became a reality.
Because having the freedom to do nothing all day doesn’t bring us joy. Purpose does—a reason to get up in the morning, a goal we’re working towards, challenging ourselves to become better than we are today. That’s what drives us
School’s Out Tips
• It is never too late to start a new tradition! Have each child pick out their favorite piece of artwork (roughly 10 pieces to start). Take their #1 art piece and have it framed and displayed in your home. Consider mailing one or two art pieces to family and friends near or far.
Store the remaining artwork in an art portfolio or a sealable container that slides under their bed. Each year, have them go through the container, edit the contents, and pick out that year’s 10 art pieces.

So, what is minimalism? It’s doing more with less! Adopting a minimalist approach can transform the world around you—helping you save money, become more productive, protect the planet, enjoy the little things, and live simpler.
While some people actually limit the number of belongings they own, you don’t have to be so rigid! To start, try tweaking simple parts of your daily routine and watch how the rest falls into place.

All those “great deals” become clutter when we bring the pieces into our homes and don’t have a place to put them away. What usually happens is the new items stay hidden in a bag, and we continue to let it pile up!
When you have too much stuff with no place to put it, it leads to clutter and chaos. This does not allow you to enjoy the stress-free, organized home you deserve.

Happy Fall! Can you believe it’s already November? Hopefully everyone is adjusting to school and their new routines. My September was a whirlwind, and without time management I would have been a stressed out mess!
I found out that I was teaching a class at the local community college two weeks before the class was scheduled to start! The school also changed the clearance processes, so in the midst of busy days working full time with clients, helping my children get adjusted to their new school routines, I had to fill out and submit my new clearances and run to the college so my fingerprints could be taken.
