9. Only watch television programmes that really interest you. It can be useful to code in what you want to watch and otherwise keep the box switched off. This will give you time to go for a walk, do gardening or even COMMUNICATE.

10. De clutter and housework will be minimal. It will also take less time to find things you need. This can be applied to your wardrobe too so that you do not waste time on trying to decide what to wear. What is in your wardrobe should be ready to wear, be items you feel and look good in and not so abundant that you are spoiled for choice.
