The Itch to Pitch

Volume 2 Issue 4

Spring is here and for many it means Spring Cleaning.  For me though it is more than just the cleaning of the windows and getting things all shiny.  I get a real  “Itch to Pitch.”  After being indoors for almost 6 months I get a little shack happy.  I am tired of looking at all of the “stuff” I have dusted (or should have dusted) all winter.   How about you? 
I have researched a few cleaning and organizing tips and I have also  included a few of my own. 
Please read the feature article below to see how to make this year's "Itch to Pitch" a little easier.

We live in a beautiful world and each year Spring helps us to reawaken and embrace the beauty around us.  The early morning light of Spring always reminds me of one of my favourite songs: Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens.  I found this lovely rendition on You Tube.  May the song and pictures inspire you to take time to enjoy this beautiful season.

Feature Article - The Itch to Pitch

Many studies have shown that there are health benefits of being organized including less stress, improved energy and improvement in overall health.    The clutter of every day living means we have more and more things to organize.  Removing the clutter and having some handy tricks will help make it easier   to reduce our stress levels and get us well on our way to having time to enjoy this beautiful season. 
When we meditate we try and clear our minds of all of the clutter and thoughts so that we can quiet and calm the mind and body.  Frank Petter referred to Gassho, one of the 3 pillars of Reiki, as a way to bring ourselves to a meditative state;  “We clean the house before the company comes.”   Here are a few tips for helping you literally clean the house, de-clutter  and get things more organized.
