Organizing Challenges Mini Challenges: Nurturing Relationships So often, people only think of organizing in relation to clutter, procrastination, or calendars, but organizing actually has to do with many aspects of our lives…including our relationships with others. Here are 5 mini challenges to help you organize and nurture relationships with your loved ones. 1. Write a note to someone...by hand. Everyone loves to receive a heartfelt, handwritten note. Make it a point this week to make someone’s day by writing a letter in your own handwriting and mailing it to them. 2. Say “Thank You.” It is very easy to take someone for granted...perhaps your spouse who has been taking the trash out for 20 years, or your mom who cares enough to call you every single day, or a friend who always babysits your kids without asking for anything in return. Take the time to tell them how much you appreciate them. 3. Go on a date. When was the last time you went to the theater or some other special event with your spouse? Talk with your better half about a fun outing...and then go on it together. Leave the kids with a relative or a friend. 4. Talk it out. Is something in your relationship causing tension? This week is the perfect time to have a heart-to- heart and talk it out with your spouse, child, mother, etc. 5. Read a book together. When was the last time you read to someone, or someone read to you? Choose a book that you and your spouse (or child, or grandchild) would enjoy and then read it to each other...you read one chapter, your partner reads the next, and then keep going back and forth. My husband and I once read Don Quixote this way...it was a blast and opened up a ton of great conversation at the end of each chapter.
