Often times, marketers make promises they can't possibly keep. Here were eight I noticed during this year's Super Bowl.

By removing the unimportant, you will free yourself up for important. —+Steve Kamb 
If you’ve decided this is the year you’re going to improve your life, here’s the areas that had the biggest impact on my journey. Pick one or two to focus on and really start to dig in.

I want my home to be welcoming. I want it to be a place where my family feels comfortable, a place where it’s easy for us to enjoy time together, and a place that helps us each do our own work. What do you want your home to be?
What do you want your home to be? Make plans now to start the new year in a space that feels more peaceful and more purposeful.

Minimalism provides myriad benefits. Less stress. More time. A greater appreciation for the people and events that truly matter in your life. These same benefits can be experienced when harnessing a minimalist approach to health and fitness.
Follow these bare essentials to improve your health while saving precious time, and even money.

Only in America do we wait in line and trample each other for sale items one day after giving thanks for what we already have.
Using the hashtag #ReclaimThanksgiving, share with us how you intend to overcome consumerism and reclaim Thanksgiving this Thursday. Tell us about your holiday traditions or plans. Or simply express your gratitude by sharing with the world what you are thankful for this year.

I started a charity. And I think it's really important.
The Hope Effect is addressing the problem of inadequate orphan care around the world. Our model for orphan care provides solutions that better mimic the family.

The very perk we believe is designed to benefit us is actually designed to benefit the store that now has our money.

When most people read about billionaires giving away money, their first reaction is typically, “Well that’s easy for them to say… if I had that kind of money, I would be generous too.” And unfortunately, the stories we most need to hear are often the hardest to find.
Everywhere I go, I meet people living passionately generous lives. Their stories need to be told. For in them, we find greater inspiration and motivation.

I already have everything I need. But many of the estimated 150 million orphans around the world do have needs. Not only do they need food and shelter and clothing, they need attention and affection and love. They need support from a family. They need to feel cared for and safe and wanted. The Hope Effect is providing that.
I have everything I need. Since becoming minimalist years ago, my definition of need has changed dramatically. As a result, I have decided to donate my birthday this year to The Hope Effect.

Our living spaces have become filled with possessions of every kind: our countertops are crowded, our closets are stuffed, our bedrooms are filled, and our drawers are overflowing. And yet, this Black Friday weekend, we will accumulate more. It doesn't make any sense.
Instead of asking for gifts this holiday season, ask for donations that make a difference. Rather than adding to the clutter in your home this holiday season, ask your friends and family to help provide homes for orphans.

Gratitude causes us to no longer desire a different life. Instead, it causes us to make the most of the one life we already have.
This Thanksgiving season, express as much gratitude as possible. But also, take some time to ask yourself more than, "What do I have to be thankful for?" Ask yourself, "What do I want to be thanked for?"
