11 Things For 2011

December 11th’s Prompt:

What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011?

How will you go about eliminating them?

How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life?

+++++

1. Cable TV. One phone call and we’re free! Or at least that’s how I hope it works.

How will it change my life? Saving money and not falling into the I’ll-just-turn-it-on-for-a-minute trap.

2. My subscription to Yoga Journal. Just letting it run its course.

How will it change my life? I’ll get my yoga writing from blogs like Michelle’s, Madeleine’s, Kim’s… and I’ll stop wondering why I keep subscribing to a magazine I don’t have much in common with.

3. More books and clothes – can’t wait until the next swaps.

How will it change my life? Saving a ton of money on new-to-me clothes and books and I’ve got an outlet for my stuff I no longer need. Spring SwapAsana anyone?

4. Sugar, dairy and bread { just for a month!}

How will it change my life? I’m not sure other than I’ll have to be more mindful about what I am eating. Want to join me? {then click workshops}

5. Screen time after 8:30 pm – a girl has got to read books.

How will it change my life? I’ll sleep better and get through my huge stack of library books faster.

6. Clutter10 things at a time.

How will it change my life? Getting rid of stuff I don’t need will make room for what I do. Plus knowing I don’t have to do it all at once will take the overwhelm out of the job.

7. Signing up for e-courses – I think I’ll finish 2010’s.

How will it change my life? Less guilt about spending and not using.

8. My sedentary ways. Consistent cardio here I come!

How will it change my life? It will help keep moodiness at bay and maybe even help my trousers fit better.

9. Taking it personally. {A 2010 resolution that needs repeating. –Daily.}

How will it change my life? I won’t be so shaken and stirred by other people’s opinions of me.

10. Guilt about housecleaning – we’ve asked for help.

How will it change my life? More time to focus on projects and fun.

11. Waiting.

How will it change my life? How won’t it?

+++++

What things will you let go of in the new year?

  3. @Geanette and Tams: I’ve contemplated this one, but I’m not willing to give up fast internet, which is currently a part of our cable package. What service do you use, especially considering you’re doing on Netflix on demand.

  4. Love this list!
    #1 is a biggie, I successfully accomplished that one in 2010 and couldn’t be happier. Netflix & Amazon – on demmand ROCK!… when there is time for TV ;)
    Can’t wait to hear about your #4 journey!
    Big hugs and support… you can count on me to “wait” in spirit at your side.
    XOXO
    G

  5. Love all these, but especially removing clutter 10 things at a time. Small chunks is such a great way to remove overwhelm in any project, yes yes!
