Virginia Currents: Interacting with Horses; Sunny & Gabe (#2708)


>>Daphne: COPPING UP ON “VIRGINIA CURRENTS,” HORSES CAN BE THE MIRROR MIRRORS OUR SOULS AND HELP US UNDERSTAND OUR EMOTIONAL INNER STRUGGLES. WE FIND OUT AT EQ FARM. AND MEET THE DYNAMIC DUO, SUNNY AND FACEBOOK AND SEW HOW THEIR UNIQUE MUSIC IS CAPTURING FANS EVERYWHERE.>>>PLUS IS YOUR HOME A BREEDING GROUND FOR CLUTTER, FIND OUT HOW CLEARING THE CLUTTER CAN CLEAR YOUR MIND.>>>AND ALSO THE SWEET SOUNDS OF COLIN AND CAROLINE. ALL NEXT ON “VIRGINIA CURRENTS.” ♪♪>>Daphne: WELCOME TO “VIRGINIA CURRENTS.” I’M DAPHNE MAXWELL REID.>>>GRACE, ACCEPTANCE, PATIENCE AND PERCEPTION ARE THERAPEUTIC GIFTS HORSES POSSESS. EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY AND LEARNING CAN HELP INDIVIDUALS WITH DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND EATING DISORDERS AND PTSD AND HELP GROUPS GAIN CONCOMPLICATE RESOLUTION, STRESS MANAGEMENT AND TEAM-BUILDING SKILLS. A LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL OVERSEES HUMAN-HORSE INTERACTION THAT INCLUDES EYE-OPENING AND SAFE AND FREE OF BRIDAL BRIDLES AND LEAD ROPES.>>WE SEE IT IN ACTION AT EQ FARM, IN PETERSBURG, WHERE BARBARA MORGAN ROUNDS UP HER GANG INCLUDING A RESCUED MUSTANG AND MINIATURE HORSE.>>I’M A TYPE A, GOT TO BE ON THE MARK KIND OF PERSON AND SO I HAD A HORSE. NAMED SALT. WHO I APPROACHED IN THAT WAY AND FOR YEARS, THAT HORSE TRIED TO LET ME KNOW IN EVERY WAY HE KNEW HOW THAT WAS NOT OK. AND IT TOOK RAY NUMBER OF TIMES OF BEING THROWN, OF HAVING TO HIKE HOME BY MYSELF BECAUSE HE LEFT ME ON THE TRAIL, SO I LEARNED TO SLOW EVERYTHING DOWN, TO BE PATIENT AND MINDFUL AND THAT’S THE GREATEST GIFT THAT HORSE GAVE ME AND I WANTED TO SHARE THAT POWERFUL EXPERIENCE NOT ONLY WITH MY CLIENTS BUT WITH STUDENTS AT THE COLLEGE WHERE I TEACH. WE FORMED A 501(C)(3) NONPROFIT, WHOSE MISSION IS TO PROVIDE FOSTER CARE TO HORSES AND FACILITATE ACTIVITIES THAT BRING HORSES AND HUMANS TOGETHER. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS THE YOUNGEST BOARD OF DIRECTORS IN VIRGINIA.>>I’M FROM NEW YORK AND IT’S CRAZY I’M NOW INTO THIS STUFF, I RIDE HORSES WITH DR. MORGAN, WEAR COWBOY BOOTS, DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN I STAYED IN NEW YORK.>>SHE’S AN THOROUGHO BRED. CENTRAL VIRGINIA HORSE RESCUED HER WHEN SHE WAS ON THE SLAUGHTER LINE, THAT MEANS IT WOULD GET SENT TO MEXICO, CANADA OR EUROPE. BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY AS A RACE HORSE. SHE DEVELOPED A PACKAGE CALLED CRIBBING WHICH IS ENCOVER FINS LIKE HAVING A HIGH — ENDORPHINS AND STRUGGLED WITH WEIGHT GAIN. CURBING IS WHEN A HORSE LATCHES ON TO A SURFACE, A WATER TROUGH OR SHELTER AND PIT BULLS BACK AND SUCKS IN AIR AND IT’S JUST GIVES THEM A HIGH AND THEY FEEL GOOD, IT TAKES AWAY FROM THE PAIN SHE HAD FROM THE ULCER. WE’VE GIVEN HER TO HELP, AND ONCE THOSE HAVE GONE AWAY, SHE’S NOT CRIBBING AS MUCH NOW. I KNOW I DIDN’T EXPECT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HER AT ALL. IT JUST KIND OF HAPPENED WHERE SHE WAS KIND OF MY ROCK AND GAUGED IF I WAS STRESSED OUT AND JUST BE THERE FOR ME.>>Daphne: HORSES BECAUSE THEY’RE PREY ANIMALS HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, BEING ABLE TO READ CUES THAT PEOPLE MAY NOT BE AWARE THEY’RE GIVING OFF. THEY READ YOUR EXTENT AND YOUR EXTERIOR IS IRRELEVANT TO THEM.>>I HAD A STUDENT WHO WAS WHEELCHAIR BOUND AND ONE OF THE THINGS SHE SAID, HE DOESN’T SEE THE CHAIR. THEY JUST SEE YOUR ESSENCE. THE EQUINE ASSISTED GROWTH AND LEARNING ASSOCIATION, AND IT’S A INTERNATIONAL NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION AND IT’S OUR BELIEF THAT HUMANS HAVE WITHIN THEMSELVES THE CAPACITY TO SOLVE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS, THE CAPACITY TO BE CREATIVE THAN WE WANT TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES USING THESE ANIMALS WHO HAVE THESE WONDERFUL GIFTS TO FACILITATE THAT IN A EXPERIENTIAL MANNER, THERE’S A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TALK THERAPY AND ACTUALLY EXPERIENCING. YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A GROUP OF WOMEN WHO ARE HERE IN A LEARNING CAPACITY. FOR THEIR MULTIPLE ROLED WOMEN, MEANING THEY WEAR A LOT OF DIFFERENT HATS IN THEIR LIVES AND WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON MINDFULNESS. COME ON IN. WE’RE GOING TO JUST START BY DOING A MINDFULNESS EXPERIENCE WITH THE HORSES.>>I JUST LOVE THE SMELL.>>THEIR SKIN IS VERY SENSITIVE. THEY JUST TWITCH AND IT MAKES — GETS THE FLY OFF.>>Daphne: TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE. WITH THE HORSES.>>NONE OF THEM SEEM TO BE AWARE OF US EVEN BEING HERE.>>DEFINITELY FOLKSED ON –>>IN THE MOMENT.>>RIGHT. OBLIVIOUS TO DISTRACTIONS, THEY DON’T REALLY KNOW HOW TO DO WHAT THEY NEED.>>AS WOMEN WE TEND TO FOCUS ON WHAT WE THINK EVERYBODY ELSE NEEDS.>>I THINK THAT’S A LESSON FOR US, THAT WE DO WHAT WE NEED.>>WE’RE GOING TO DO A STRESS MANAGEMENT ACTIVITY, SYMBOLIC AND YOU MAY USE ANYTHING IN THE ARENA AND WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT REPRESENTS A MAJOR STRESSOR FOR WOMEN.>>I THINK DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF LIFE. WORKING TOGETHER.>>THIS IS A GARDEN. [LAUGHTER]>>LIKE FAMILY AND THEN WORK.>>HOME AND FAMILY HERE AND THEN OUR WORK LIFE IS SEPARATE.>>SEPARATE?>>YOU KNOW.>>YES.>>WHAT DID YOU CREATE?>>A THREE-RING CIRCUS.>>OK. [LAUGHTER]>>A THREE-RING CIRCUS.>>JUGGLING.>>YEAH, A BALL IN EACH ONE, BALANCING IT ALL. TRYING TO KEEP THEM ALL UP IN THE AIR.>>WE LIKE — WE’D LIKE YOU TO BRING AS MANY HORSES AS YOU CAN, OVER, THROUGH OR AROUND YOUR DRESSER. STRESSOR. COME ON. WE’RE OUT HERE, WITH THESE ANIMALS, SOME OF THEM 1,000-POUNDS, NO HALTERS. NO LEAD ROPES. NO CONTROLS. CAN YOU SUSTAIN YOURSELF IN THAT ACTIVITY WITH THAT TYPE OF SCENARIO? THAT TEACHES THAT PERSON TO LET GO A LITTLE BIT. COME ON.>>HE’S LIKE, I JUST WANT TO EAT. LEAVE ME ALONE. [LAUGHTER]>>THIS IS WHAT LIFE IS LIKE. NOT GETTING ANYTHING TO DO –>>RIGHT!>>COME ON.>>PEOPLE TEND TO PROJECT A LOT ON TO THESE HORSES. ALMOST LIKE A RORSCHACH WITH HORSES. THEY CAN SAY, THAT REMINDS ME OF APPLY FATHER, THEY CAN TALK AND PROJECT ON TO THE HORSE AND HAVE A MUCH MORE FRUITFUL DISCUSSION AS THEY’RE EXPERIENCING IT IN THE MOMENT.>>SOMETIMES I THINK WE NEED COAXING AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO COME THROUGH THE CHAOS. IN ORDER TO GET THINGS DONE.>>WELL, LET’S CHANGE THE STRATEGY AND ASK THEM TO FACE THE CHAOS. HOW WOULD YOU DO THAT.>>WE CAN BE MANIPULATIVE. HORSES DON’T DO THAT. WHAT YOU GET FROM A HORSE IN THAT MOMENT IS WHAT THAT HORSE IS EXPERIENCING IN THAT MOMENT. THERE’S NO HIDDEN AGENDA.>>AROUND THE CHAOS, BUSINESS, THEY’LL LET YOU LEARN FROM THEM. AND THEY WILL TOLERATE IT. AND ACCEPTANCE WITHOUT JUDGMENT.>>YEAH, THEY DON’T WANT ANY PART OF THE CHAOS.>>WHAT WAS FRUSTRATING THEM?>>JUST A BIG — IT’S A CONSTANT IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU THINK SOMETHING’S IMPORTANT, AND SOMEBODY ELSE — YOU KNOW, YOU CAN — IN THIS CASE, YOU CAN’T EVEN LEAD THE HORSE TO WATER. [LAUGHTER]>>SOMETIMES WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO THINK LIKE THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES.>>SOMETIMES THE HARD YOU TRY TO PUSH SOMEBODY IN THIS DIRECTION, IT’S JUST — IT DOESN’T WORK.>>YEAH.>>SO HOW IS IT TO JUST LET IT GO? OK?>>I MEAN, WE’VE GOT ONE IN THERE. [LAUGHTER]>>A LITTLE BIT IS ENOUGH. THAT’S A HARD ONE.>>WELL, IT’S THAT — YOU KNOW, PERFECTION IS THE ENEMY OF GOOD ENOUGH IN MY HEAD EVERY DAY. YOU WANT THINGS TO BE JUST SO. AND WHEN THEY’RE NOT, YOU HAVE TO — LEARN TO LET IT GO.>>THEY WOULD SAY THAT WOULD BE A PEAK RIGHT THERE WHAT YOU JUST SAID. THE HORSE, BY RONALD DUNCAN, WHERE IN THIS WIDE WORLD CAN MAN FIND NOBILITY WITHOUT PRIDE, FRIENDSHIP WITHOUT ENVY, OR BEAUTY WITHOUT VANITY. HERE, WHERE GRACE IS SERVED WITH MUSCLE AND STRENGTH BY GENTLENESS COMBINED. HE SERVES WITHOUT CERTIFICATEVILLITY. HE HAS FOUGHT — THERE’S NOTHING SO POWERFUL, NOTHING LESS VIOLENT, NOTHING SO QUICK, NOTHING MORE PATIENT. YEAH.>>Daphne: SINCE OUR VISIT TO EQ FARM, WE’RE HAPPY TO REPORT THAT CHANCE HAS GAINED HER WEIGHT BACK AND HAS BEEN ADOPTED. FOR MORE ON HORSE ADOPTION AND FOSTERING AND VOLUNTEERING AND THERAPEUTIC SERVICE, GO TO THE WEBSITE ON YOUR SCREEN.>>YOU WANT TO MEET THE HORSE ON HIS OR HER TERMS AND NOT INVADE THEIR SPACE UNLESS THEY INVITE YOU IN, THIS HORSE IS HEADED DOWN THE VERY LAST — THIS WOULD BE A HORSE — THEY CAN’T SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT RIGHT HERE. THE CAMERAMAN, GOING TO MAKE YOU A STAR!>>Daphne: I MIGHT RECOGNIZE THIS SONG “VACAY” FROM A COCA-COLA COMMERCIAL LAST SUMMER. THE ARTISTS BEHIND IT ARE SUNNY AND GABE. THEY MET IN NORFOLK DURING THE SUMMER OF 2012 AND SINCE THEN, THEY’VE BEEN MAKING GENERAL RAW BREAKING MUSIC. THEIR MUSIC APPEALS TO ALL WALKS OF LIFE, ALL AGES, WITH SPLASHES OF BEATS REPRESENTING MANY ERAS AND SOUNDS, KIND OF LIKE MUSIC TIME TRAVELERS.>>THEY EMPHASIZE IT’S NOT A BLACK THING OR WHITE THING OR FEMALE VERSUS MALE THING, INSTEAD IT’S A MUSIC THING, THROUGH WHICH YOU CAN TRANSFORM A BAD SITUATION INTO A POSITIVE ONE. SUNNY AND GABE HOPE TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO EMBRACE THEIR OWN FREEDOM AND BRING UNITY IN A TIME OF DIVISION. ♪♪>>2012, BEFORE YOU EVEN DUOSED YOURSELF, BECAUSE YOU STOLE MY SONGS. SOUND CLOUD AND PUT YOUR OWN ON IT.>>GABE MADE THE SOUND.>>I WAS LIKE, WHO IS THIS GUY? WHAT IS THIS.>>SHE HAD A SOLDIER CALLED “AT YOU.” AND SHE SAID HOW DID YOU GET THIS? [LAUGHTER]>>I SAID I CAN’T SAY I’M NOT INTERESTED, AT THE TIME, I WAS MEETING UP WITH SOMEONE DIFFERENT EVERY COUPLE DAYS, LIKE I’VE GOT TO GET OUT OF JUST DOING IT BY MYSELF.>>SHE WAS OFFENDED BUT I’M GLAD ANYWAY. TIME TRAVEL, YOU HAVE THIS BOND, A PARTNER, SO I — SHE SAID, Y’ALL –>>ME AND GABE ARE POLAR OPPOSITES IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORLD.>>NO, WE’RE NOT.>>WE HAVE IN COMMON, THE LOVE OF CILANTRA AND OTHER THINGS.>>WHAT.>>I THINK WE REALLY LIKE THE AESTHETICS OF TIMES PAST. WE SORT OF GRAVITATE TOWARD THINGS IN THE PAST. SO — A SOUND BECOMES AN IMAGE.>>THAT’S WHAT I LOVE. ♪♪>>I LOVE IT WHEN IT’S PRESENT, PAST, AND FUTURE. THE FUTURE REALLY WAS ALL OF US COMING TOGETHER AND MAKING IT. BECAUSE IT’S NEVER BEEN — IN THE SONG, THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE THIS.>>YOU KNOW YOUR BEAT HAS A NOT TALL GENETIC FEELING WHEN I — A NOSTALGIC FEELING WHEN I’M IN A BAR WATCHING AN OLD CAR DRIVE AWAY.>>BUT THEN A SOUL SONG AND THEN THE BEAT — THE 808, LIKE, IT’S LIKE NOW. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? AND IT’S LIKE ADD LITTLE THINGS AND LIKE — ADD THINGS AND MAKE IT SOUND FUTURISTIC. NOW YOU’RE COVERING ALL OF THIS GROUND AND IT CAN REALLY CONNECT WITH AN OLDER PERSON OR A YOUNG PERSON. LIKE, YOU KNOW, THE CRAZY THING ABOUT SUNNY AND GABE, WE HAVE THE CONVERSATION WITH SOMEONE, 60 YEARS OLD AND THEN LIKE A 17 YEAR OLD AND — IT’S SOMETHING IT REALLY ADDS SOMETHING. IT’S HONESTLY, IT’S JUST A FEELING THAT WE CONNECT. A FEELING THAT PEOPLE CONNECT TO. ♪♪>>WE DIDN’T MAKE A SONG FOR COCA-COLA, WE HAD A SONG THAT THEY WANTED TO USE. ME AND SUNNY WERE REALLY JUST DOING OUR THING AND THEY HEARD A SONG AND — I THINK THAT’S WHAT — CHA-CHA. AND THEN SUDDENLY, GABE — BOOM! COCA-COLA COMES UP AND THAT’S A PRETTY BIG LOOK.>>I DON’T FEEL ANY REALLY IMPORTANT SENSE OF LIKE BEING SUCCESSFUL IN ANY WAY, BECAUSE WE HAD A SONG PICKED UP FOR ADVERTISING FOR — YOU KNOW, A HUGE CORPORATION. IT’S A GREAT WAY TO IMPRESS YOUR PARENTS AND GET THEM — GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO SHOW THEIR FRIENDS AND A GREAT WAY TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF CASH TO FUND WHAT YOU’RE TRYING DO AS A ARTIST. BUT IT WASN’T THAT SIGNIFICANT IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS. MY BIGGEST GOALS, I’M NOT DRIVEN WHICH MONEY.>>OUR END GOAL RIGHT NOW, EVEN IF — LIKE THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE OF EVERYTHING GOING ON RIGHT NOW, AS FAR AS LIKE — THIS MAN, WOMAN, EVERYTHING, GOING ON IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW, I FEEL LIKE ME AND SUNNY, COULD PRESENT A UNITY.>>TIME TRAVELERS BALL, IT FELT REALLY GOOD TO PLAY ALL OF THE MUSIC WHEN WE HAD OUR LISTENING PARTY THE HERMITAGE MUSEUM. I WAS REALLY GLAD TO DO SOMETHING FOR PEOPLE AFTER SORT OF LIKE KIND OF — YOU GET PEOPLE EXCITED A LITTLE BIT. AND IT’S A COOL ATMOSPHERE, OUTSIDE AND –>>MAKE SURE THAT VIRGINIA HEARS EVERYTHING FIRST. THE POWER OF THE MUSIC CONNECTS ANYONE. THERE COULD BE TWO PEOPLE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT VIEWS AND THEY CAN RELATE TO HAVING THEIR FAVORITE SONG BEING THE SAME SONG AND IT’S LIKE — THAT’S SOMETHING THAT CANNOT EVER BE IGNORED. I LOVE THE FACT THAT MUSIC CAN HURT SO GOOD AND A SONG CAN BE SO SAD AND MAKE YOU FEEL SO GOOD. IT’S A THING THAT REALLY MAKES YOU EXPLORE HUMAN EMOTIONS. AND INSTEAD OF ACTIONS BROUGHT US TO TOGETHER, THAT’S THE ONLY WAY –>>THANK YOU, STATE OF MUSIC.>>THANK YOU, GREAT, MUSIC. THANK YOU EVERYTHING. ♪♪>>Daphne: TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SUNNY AND GABE, CHECK OUT THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES AND TO HEAR THEIR MUSIC, GO TO SOUNDCLOUD.COM/SUNNYAND GABE.>>Daphne: WELCOME TO DAPHNE’S CORNER. ARE YOU SURROUNDED BY CLUTTER AT HOME OR IN YOUR OFFICE? THIS CLUTTER CREATES MORE THAN AESTHETIC DOWNFALLS.>>IT CAN AFFECT THE WAY YOU FEEL, WORK AND CREATE. TO HELP US UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF DECLUTTERRING IS DEBBIE BOWIE, A CERTIFIED ORGANIZING COACH AND PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER. WELCOME TELL US HOW DECLUTTERRING CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE?>>YOU BENEFIT FROM THE FEELING OF RELIEF. CLUTTER IS HEAVY, IT’S IRRITATING AND ANNOYING AND YOU FEEL IT EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT CONSCIOUS OF IT. YOU’RE FEELING THE WEIGHT OF IT. WHEN YOU DECLUTTER, YOU’LL FEEL LIGHTER AND THINK MORE CLEARLY AND MAKE BETTER DECISIONS AND FIND WHAT YOU NEED AND, THEREFORE, BE MORE PRODUCTIVE AND IT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH. IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF CLUTTER AROUND YOU, YOU’RE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE DIFFERENT HEALTH RELATED ISSUES, LIKE ASTHMA, OR A LOT OF MY CLIENTS HAVE FIBROMYALGIA.>>Daphne: SO IT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH. WHAT KEEPS PEOPLE FROM ATTEMPTING TO DECLUTTER?>>UNFORTUNATELY, A LOT OF PEOPLE LET IT GO TOO LONG SO WHAT THEY HAVE TO CLEAR IS AN ENORMOUS, OH, MY GOD! HOW DO I BEGIN SITUATION AND THEY GET EASILY OVERWHELMED. FEELINGS OF BEING OVERWHELMED SHUT THEIR BRAIN OFF. SOME LOOK AT IT, IT’S TOO BORING AND SOME DON’T THINK IT’S WORTH THEIR TIME. OTHER THINGS SEEM MORE IMPORTANT.>>Daphne: WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO DECLUTTER A HOUSE? WHERE DO WOULD YOU START.>>IF A WHOLE HOUSE, YOU NEED A PLAN, AND MY RECOMMENDATION IS TAKE ONE ROOM PER MONTH AND THAT’S WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN IN MY BOOK, FROM CLUTTER TO CLEAR IN ONE YEAR. HAVE A PLAN, A STRONG COMMITMENT, LIKE A PRIORITY. YOU MAKE IT FOR THE YEAR, EVERY MONTH YOU’VE GOT THIS THING YOU’RE GOING TO DO. AND IDEALLY, YOU NEED HELP, USUALLY WITH A FAMILY MEMBER, OR A CLOSE FRIEND OR EVEN A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER, IT’S A ENORMOUS JOB TO CLEAR A WHOLE HOUSE.>>Daphne: WHAT ARE YOUR MOST SUCCESSFUL TIPS FOR DECLUTTERRING?>>THE MOST IMPORTANT IS DON’T START WITH PAPER. PEOPLE INSTINCTIVELY GO WITH WHAT IS SCREAMING AT THEM. PAPER IS LOUD AND NOISY AND THEY QUIT BECAUSE IT’S SO BORING AND TAKES FOR TO SEE PROGRESS AND IT’S HARD TO DO. SHUFFLE THE PAPER TOGETHER AND PUT IT ASIDE AND START WITH BIGGER THINGS. YOU NEED TO MAKE PROGRESS QUICKLY WHEN YOU CLEAR CLUTTER. SO START REQUEST FURNITURE. START WITH BOOKS. CLOTHING. THINGS WHERE YOU CAN GET VOLUMES OF THINGS OUT OF YOUR HOUSE. AND AS SOON AS YOU GET THE VOLUMES OUT, IT FREES YOUR THINKING AND ENTHUSES YOU AND YOU’RE MORE MOTIVATED. START WITH BIG STUFF. AND THE WAY TO MAKE DECISIONS WHAT TO KEEP AND GET RID OF, ASK YOURSELF, DO I LOVE IT? AND LOVE IT THINGS ARE AESTHETICALLY BEAUTIFUL OR BRINGS BACK A GOOD MEMORY OR USE IT AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR, IF IT YOU DON’T LOVE IT OR USE, IT LOSE IT, IS WHAT I SAY.>>Daphne: HOW ON A DAILY BASIS CAN WE AVOID GETTING TO THIS SITUATION?>>HAVING GOOD HABITS, MAINTENANCE HABIT, SOME PEOPLE DON’T DO BECAUSE IT’S BORING, THEY’RE HANGING THINGS UP. PUT THINGS AWAY FROM ON A REGULAR BASIS, IN THE RICH, UNPACK THE BAGS AND TAKE YOUR CLOTHES AND JEWELRY OFF AND PUT THINGS AWAY EVERY DAY. IT’S CLEANUP ALL DAY LONG, AS YOU’RE MOVING THROUGH THE HOUSE, DOING DIFFERENT THINGS, WHEN YOU PULL THINGS OUT, PUT THEM BACK, WHEN YOU MAKE A MEAL, CLEAN UP AFTER AND HAVING A SNACK, BRING YOUR PLATES TO THE KITCHEN. REGULAR CLEANUP. AND THEN IT’S PURGE, LOOK FOR STUFF TO GET RID OF ON A REGULAR BASIS, THE THINGS THAT ARE BROKEN AND CAN’T BE EASILY FIXED. THINGS THAT ARE STATIC. IN THE BACK OF THE CLOSET. ANYTHING WITH A NEGATIVE ASSOCIATION, A TERRIBLE TIME IN YOUR LIFE.>>Daphne: GREAT IDEA. WELL, WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU JOIN US TODAY.
