1. Set intentions for your dreams
2. Shed Unnecessary Content
“Here’s a great tip from the pandemic — to learn what’s necessary and what’s not. Let’s just close the business that is not essential in our lives! I used the space shuttle as another metaphor for this: when it takes off, unnecessary things will start falling out. I am an avid shopper, and I love organizing a wardrobe. I would love to be a professional wardrobe organizer. Occasionally, I like to put my hands on all that I own, and if I haven’t worn something in a while: give it away or sell it. People keep things for so long that they don’t wear them – it drives me crazy. We don’t have a lot of closet space anyway so I just want good pieces that I’ll wear over and over again. I got old Phoebe Philo Celine pieces that I’ve been searching for on the Deep Web for several years! I also care about the sustainability of used clothes, so I love The Real Real, Vestiaire Collective, and I love and cherish Categorized. I got some great Martine Roses there, and I have an unreal Celine coat—old Celine, of course—on eBay!
5. Meditate and breathe
