Whether you wear sneakers to work in the yard or workout at the gym, check that they aren’t falling apart – inside or out.
If you have multiple pairs of sneakers, do they have different purposes? (A sturdy pair for walking and a cute pair for wearing to cookouts.) If sneakers are your fashion statement, do you wear, or at least enjoy, every pair of sneakers that you own?
If you are holding onto worn-out sneakers, ask yourself when you plan to wear them. If your answer is that you want to hold onto them ‘just in case,’ consider that you probably won’t wear them.
If this doesn’t apply to you – Pick a time of day when you’d normally scroll through social media and choose to do something else. Take a walk (even if you just go into another room), get a drink of water, color, read.
