trivial i'll like to share:
did you know that we only wear about 20% of our clothes 80% of the time?
the above little statistical snippet, i learnt from an organisational behaviour expert (didn't know such designations existed. guess you could be expert on anything) on oprah primetime. if you are wondering...i was channel-surfing.
the topic of the day: de-cluttering. sounds like an episode i shouldn't miss (c.f. entry 'randomness: mess').
i did catch part of the show (i love watching the before-&-after segments!) and some of the things discussed resonated within. worth pondering over. the clutter on the table, under the bed, on the shelf and wherever else could hypothetically reflect clutter that's much deeper within. also, physical clutter robs one of precious space, time and eventually, energy. in short, i think it can actually deprive one (or a family) of a fulfilling and enriching life, and somewhat reduces the quality of life. imagine the physical and emotional drain of having to manoeuver through piles of anything and everything every single day. okay, this may sound a bit over the board, but the show was featuring a family that was literally walking on anything and everything. the baby didn't have space to crawl!
living clutter-free is, in fact, a discipline and one i'm striving to develop well. for starters, i've started a recycling pile to which i'll channel all loose and unwanted pieces of paper. then, its off to the recyling bin.
next up, wardrobe release. i've already got the boxes to pack them clothes in. mommy's voice did ring a little when i told her what i wanted the boxes for. (:
