It is renovation season in the neighborhood. Houses sport new colors, yards display new drought-resistant flowers, roofs fly off and return stronger than before. Even I pulled weeds and trimmed up the back yard.
On an even more local level, we can do some renovations. Maybe it’s time to clean our body houses. I am not a believer in “detox” programs; we have livers for that. However, we all can do the equivalent of cleaning out the fridge, waxing the floors (does anybody do that anymore?), washing the curtains, and decluttering the closets.
Maybe it is time to turn that idea that we can’t do some particular thing into mulch. Or time to recycle our outdated body image. Or even stop reading about new fitness techniques long enough to try some.
What will make us feel new and shiny?
