Grab a long tape measure piece of string and a friend or family member.
Find a large room in your home — your living room or family room; maybe a clear spot in your basement or garage. Or go outside, if you must. But I suspect most of you have a big enough space in your home.
Have your friend stand in the middle of the space, holding the end of the string or tape measure. Pull your end out to 20′ and slowly walk in a circle, your friend turning with you. See the circle. Feel the circle.
- Where would you put your bed?
- How would you create a miniature kitchen?
- What furniture would you need to carve out a comfortable place to sit?
- Where would you store clothes? Your dishes? Your books?
Never mind the bathroom for now. Just the living space. Focus there.
Ask yourself: What is truly necessary to live a life of contentment?
