We have a halltree that houses coats,mail,etc. and can get overloaded regularly.However,when I bring FRESH cut flowers in a vase,I enjoy displaying them on the halltree [it has a ledge,too!] and so , I clear EVERYTHING OFF in record speed!!! Bringing in THOSE FLOWERS gives me enough MOTIVATION to clean/clear everything out and then I have an ORGANIZED,LOVELY picture of real flowers to look at ~and THAT is SO RELAXING! And seeing THAT ORGANIZED, will inspire me to do OTHER ROOMS!
When I feel really down about myself or am really stressed I buy myself flowers. Specifically something I can cut and arrange myself - smelling the fresh cut flowers and arranging them into something beautiful soothes me, makes me stop and use all my senses to enjoy the moment and makes me reflect on beautiful things, about myself and my life that I appreciate - always puts me in a better mood, and makes me smile every time I look at them for days to come 214
