Creating a sense of physical space has the instant effect of creating a feeling of space in the mind. Calm replaces panic and even time seems to stretch out once more. It’s funny, but when you realise you can only focus on one thing right now, wear one coat or use one mug, you bring the art of simplicity back into your life, and letting go doesn’t seem such a hard or bad thing after all. It releases you to get on with so much more, to really enjoy what you do have rather than continually going out to search for more.
