This was a little ‘game’ my Mum taught us, and no, not the card game – the tidy up your mess ‘game.’ When she would say, ‘it’s time to do a 52 Pickup,’ it meant it was time for us to stop what we were doing and tidy up our messes throughout the house. I still use it everyday. I make my way, room by room, picking up and putting my things back in their proper ‘home.’

Greater quality of life. More joy. Greater peace of mind. More time to enjoy the people and activities you love. I think I hear Mum now…52 Pickup.
