Beginning this week, a group of us at Miomarmo are going to work through Zen Habits' awesome Edit Your Life series together. (The parts about going through and cleaning up rooms, closets, and my wardrobe are where I will personally need the most work, as I have three preschoolers and they generate a lot of stuff. Okay, truthfully, I can't blame the kids entirely for this; I've always been the Oscar Madison of the house.) We're hoping that by doing this together, we can encourage each other, and hopefully by the end of the summer have cleaner, simpler lives. In that spirit of togetherness, we're inviting anyone who wants to, to join in and make a commitment with us to a simpler life.
The sections are:
- Edit Your Life, Part 1: Commitments
- Edit Your Life, Part 2: Your Rooms
- Edit Your Life, Part 3: Closets and Drawers
- Edit Your Life, Part 4: Your Work Space
- Edit Your Life, Part 5: Your Wardrobe
- Edit Your Life, Part 6: A Media Fast
We'll be taking a week to do each part, beginning today with the first week, Commitments. So please, join in! We'll be doing a recap each week marking our progress, and if you're doing it with us, feel free to write us and let us know how you're doing as well. (Feel free also to grab the above graphic to use for yourself.)
As Thoreau said, "Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify." Here's to less frittering. More living.
