AT THE END OF THE DAY… BY EMMY B. SACRED HEART HOSPITAL 900 W CLAIREMONT AVE EAU CLAIRE, WI 54701-5105 This publication in no way seeks to serve as a substitute for professional medical care. Consult your physician before undertaking any form of medi- cal treatment or adopting any exercise program or dietary guidelines. TAKE A MOMENT FOR YOURSELF AS YOU WRAP UP A BUSY DAY AND ENJOY THESE POSITIVE THOUGHTS FROM AN HSHS SACRED HEART HOSPITAL COLLEAGUE. I'VE NEVER REALLY been much of a pack rat. About ten years ago, I moved twice in one year and then lived in an apartment without a basement for eight years, so that pretty much cured me of any hoarding tendencies I may have had! But then I bought a house in 2013, and I'm amazed how much is now stored in my basement. It's become the final resting place for anything that I no longer use—from appliances to books to knickknacks to exercise equipment. And don't even get me started on the extra closet I have for all those articles of clothing I just might need "someday." I will be the first to admit that if I get bored or feel a little down, a good shopping spree will usually fix me right up. I know that I'm not the only one who feels this way—just watch a home shopping network sometime and you'll be astounded at the number of people who feel the deep need to purchase one more pair of "diamond-like" earrings, even though they readily admit they have over 100 pieces just like it in their jewelry box. Let's face it—buying something new makes us feel good, at least for a little while. Maybe it's time that I reclaim my basement and donate my unused items to a good cause instead of just storing them away. After all, do I really need five pairs of black pants? Note to self: Keep things that you care about, and care about things that you keep. Inspirations
