Hi, I’m Dr. Pam Peeke. It’s Macrocosm time. Macrocosm means your environment, so if you want to be environmentally fit to live, what does it mean? Well, it doesn’t mean living in clutter. Now, remember you were supposed to be taking walks and you wrap your head around the fact that taking a walk is really healthy. Well, you can’t take a walk if you can’t find your sneakers and you live in clutter all the time. “Where are my sneakers here? Oh, here they are.” Good heavens! What happened here? This is a mess! Alright, well, there are my sneakers but oh dear, I have hours of cleaning up here to do. How many of you live in clutter? I know you do. Look in your car. Scary, isn’t it? Now, this is what you need to do in order to be environmentally fit to live. Clean it up right now. That’s right. That’s your homework assignment, and don’t try to do it overnight. Sit down and just parcel it on out. That means a closet here or a foyer there, a bedroom closet, the bedroom itself. How about the miles of piles on that desk? That’s right, bills that have not been paid. So what does it really mean? It means organizing enough to take those sneakers and put them near the front door. You can go out, take that walk. You put sneakers right near the front door. You organize. You’ve got a plan. And if you do that, then you—well, oh here it is, under the clutter. Then you’re able to reign in that belly. You’ll be able to see that change right around the most important place in your body to be able to measure for prevention of disease, right around that belly. The more organized you are, the less clutter, guess what, the less you’ll see of that waistline. De-clutter today, become environmentally fit to live.
