5 Reasons why REDUCTION is better...

We are naturally conscious of ourselves, what we are thinking, how we look, and what we are doing. As David Foster Wallace put it, “There is no experience you’ve had that you were not at the absolute center of.” 
Having more of what you love makes for a better experience. This is as true for an individual as it is for an organization. Here are 5 reasons to to give away or sell what you do not need any more.

1. IT’S JUST EASIER

When it comes to getting rid of things, less is truly more. With less to organize, pack, load, haul, and unpack when you move, you will be freeing up your time, energy, and money.

            2. A NEW LEASE ON LIFE 

It can be difficult to let go of items with sentimental value, but when you give away or sell at auction, you're giving your  even heirlooms a chance at a new chapter with a new owner who will appreciate and value them at their full potential.

3. A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

Sometimes tackling even the junk drawer can be intimidating. But once you finally mark these chores off your mental to-do list, you'll feel the encouragement you need to move on to the next big project.

4. A NEW APPRECIATION FOR THE OBJECTS YOU KEEP

Once you get rid of the things you don’t use, want, or need, you’ll be surrounded only by the things you love. How’s that for a happiness-boost?

5. A CLEAR SPACE IS A CLEAR MIND

Waking up in a clean, organized, and clutter-free home grants you the clarity to think about the important things, like your family, job, and goals.

Every item we use or product we consume comes at a cost to our planet. The planet's natural resources are finite. As consumers we all have an obligation to conserve our natural resources and reduce the amount of waste we dispose.

Noise in our minds...

The sound of a bird can stop the noise in our minds. Listen to the songs… The chickadee calling to his friends with a cheerful “chick-a-dee-dee-dee”, the comforting coo of the mourning dove, the resonate hammering of a distant downy woodpecker… Their happy, carefree melodies fill the yard in the early morning light. www.esutras.comLive one day as deliberately as nature. Observe their habits… With a flurry of wings, a blue jay fills his crop and flies off to a nearby branch to finish his meal. A tufted titmouse visits the feeder and, one-by-one, takes a seed back to his favorite perch, creatively holding the seeds with his toes as he cracks them open and enjoys the tasty morsel inside. The evening grosbeak comes to the feeder, calmly perching, eating seed after seed till he’s had his fill. The world is bathed in the hues of nature. Marvel at the colors… The regal red winter plumage of the majestic Cardinal. The brilliant blue darts of color as the Eastern Bluebirds flit to and from the…
