Wellness Wednesday

A big part of your overall wellness has to do with the environment you live in.  Look around, do you have too much stuff? Is your storage closet/shed full of items you don't use?  What about you closet, are there clothes that you haven't worn in over a year, or can't fit anymore?  Well, it's time to simplify and de-clutter your personal environment.  My Wellness Wednesday tip for you this week is to clear out the clutter, and donate your unused items.  If you are not getting use out of something, guaranteed there is someone out there who would put that good tv stand, or that business suit to use.  By donating your items, not only are you creating a healthy, stress-free environment, but you are also also helping the community... Which in turn warms your soul (it's a triple win).  Here's one more bonus, usually you can get a tax deduction for donations.  Check with the charity, find out their policies, and what items can they really use... Not all organizations are the same, so do your research.

Here are some ideas of places to donate your items:
  • Goodwill (clothing, household items, electronics) (pic: one of my many trips to Goodwill of Delaware)
  • Salvation Army (clothing, furniture, household items)
  • Homeless Shelters (clothing, new toiletry items, 
  • Habitat for Humanity Restore (appliances, cabinets, doors, electronics, fans, tools, etc)
  • Animal Shelters (sheets, towels, blankets)
  • Church organizations (varies per organization)

So this Wellness Wednesday, Reduce your clutter, allow someone to Reuse your unused items, and let those items truly be Recycled!  Your wellness, your environment, your stress level, and your soul will thank you.... And so will the receiving person or organization.  Stay well and clutter-free this Wednesday!
