Clutter Begins And Ends With A Mindset

It’s astonishing how many people face an onslaught of clutter in their life.

It wouldn’t surprise me if your initial reaction to reading that gave you a little jolt of anxiety. I mean seriously, the thought of battling a mess everyday is exhausting, let alone actually having to experience it.

But the hard fact is: “54% of Americans are overwhelmed with clutter.”

Now, here’s something that people neglect to realize, and that is: “Clutter begins and ends with a mindset.” Yes, that’s right, I think that’s worth repeating…

“Clutter begins and ends with a mindset.”

You see, there’s something going on in the mind when someone has clutter. Now, just so we are crystal clear here, I”m not talking about the occasional messy home or office. I’m talking about the vicious cycle of clutter that feels like you’re trapped and can’t get out from under the piles and piles of stuff.

When that cycle is alive, there are very strong emotional blocks that are active as well. This is why it is extremely difficult to break free from the clutter syndrome because there is a conflict between the mind and heart.

Now, I can tell you form my 20 plus years experience as a Chronic Disorganization & Hoarding Specialist, that this is a very serious problem, however, the good news is that it is solvable. It does take some work, but there is a cure for clutter.

The cure for clutter not only has to do with developing good skills and forming new healthy habits, but it also has to do with readjusting our attitude and limiting beliefs. This is how the emotional blocks get penetrated and this is how a new mindset then occurs to end the clutter.

One of the ways I help people begin the process of de-cluttering their life is through a Mind Clearing Session. I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about this previously and have read the testimonials. The Mind Clearing does exactly that – it helps bring clarity and a deeper understanding to one’s higher self.

I’m hosting a FREE webinar discussing this and so much more. If you can relate to what I just wrote about, you owe it to yourself to attend. (Really, you do!)

Here’s How To Handle Unproductive Days

 

We all have them – productive days where you feel like a champ and can tackle anything that comes your way.

I think that’s why when the not so good, unproductive days come our way, we feel a mix of emotions from disappointment to overwhelm.

The best way I handle the wave of an off day is by tapping into a few simple strategies.  Here is what’s recommended when you can’t get out of your own way:

  1. Take a Short Break … (to relax your mind)
  2. Seek Out Inspiration …(to help lift your spirits)
  3. Eliminate Distractions … (to keep you focused)
  4. Tackle a small task …(to help you feel productive)
  5. Evaluate the Reason Behind the Lack of Productivity … (to keep you in touch with your feelings)

I must admit that I do feel much better when I apply these techniques, but I also found that it reduces the amount of time of indecisiveness that usually accompanies unproductive days.Hope this helps you out a bit.  Feel free to share any tips that you may have.

Till next time, be well.

FALL INTO LIFE

 

Happy First Day Of Fall!

As summer wraps up and fall and winter approach, there’s plenty to do to get your home ready for the coming season.

But, there’s also plenty to do to get your “life” in order.

For instance, what are some of the “things” you promised yourself you would change in your life?  Do you need a better routine?  Do you need to self-care more often?  Do you need to change your diet?

Now is the time to get organized in your home, but remember, your home is a reflection of “you.” So how do you want to move forward in life that brings out the best in you and mirrors that back into your home?

You see, if you’re concerned about your disorganization or your clutter, what you need to realize first is that this is just an outward manifestation from what’s going on within you.  So the focus should always be on YOU first to figure out the “cause.”

Now I understand that sometimes it’s not always easy to identify the “source” of your time management issues, the perpetual procrastination, the undeniable distractions, etc., but once you do, it becomes so much clearer on what your next steps should be to clean-up the outward mess.

If this makes sense to you, and you would like to FALL INTO LIFE in a productive, stress-free way, then you should consider the Mind Clearing Session that everyone is raving about.  You can learn all about it by clicking on the link below.

Remember, it all begins with YOU!

How to bring more ‘positivity’ into your life

Let’s talk a little bit about “positivity”…

Positivity is the ability to meet challenges and situations in life with an “I can do it,” “I’ll figure it out,” “Things will work out,” attitude.

Now here’s the thing…

It’s not that people with positive attitudes don’t face the same disappointments, challenges and stressors in life that everyone else does.  Not at all.

The difference is that they choose to find a productive and positive way to cope and respond to challenges.

Studies have shown that positive thinking brings positive responses in your body which can boost your mood and diminish stress.

Again, we all have stressors in our life, but by practicing the power of positivity the more likely it will be that you will enjoy a sense of well-being.

Here’s a very powerful exercise you can do immediately to help you feel more positive:

  • Make a list (yes, write it down) of all the things that are going well in your life, of the things that bring you joy and the things you are grateful for.
  • Make an effort to read it first thing in the morning and before going to bed.  Also, place it in a place during the day where you can read it often.
  • Why is this important?  Because by focusing on the aspects of your life that are going well for you can promote a positive attitude in the rest of your life.

Now here’s a little suggestion.  If you are struggling right now and the idea of “positivity” seems far-fetched, it could be that you just need a little mental clarity.  So I’m going to invite you to schedule a FREE one-on-one call with me so I can explain how the mind clearing exercise (you know, the one that people are raving about) can be your new best friend.

Just click the link below and rest assured that soon you will feel lighter, have a sense of peace and yes, be  more positive.

Hesitating On Something? This Will Help.

Are you hesitating on taking action on something?

You’re not alone.

One reason we hesitate when we have something we are afraid to do is because we are thinking only of the end result and likely feel incapable of getting to that point from where we are now.

Now, if you “think” about that above statement and apply it to your own circumstances, maybe you can get a little more insight into why you’re feeling afraid or incapable.

But if you want crystal, clear insight, you definitely want to attend my FREE class on the Mind Clearing Exercise.
People are going crazy over it (in a good way😊) because it gives them the tools they need to take action.

Get Your Life In Order

Do you know why “order” feels good?  Well, in part it’s because our brain doesn’t have to work so hard.

Clutter creates stress that has three major biological and neurological effects on us—our cortisol levels, our creativity and ability to focus, and our experience of pain.

No matter how we slice it, when clutter creeps in to the point where it exceeds our ability to manage it – havoc occurs in our world.

So if you’re struggling with clutter, it stands to reason that your mind is craving calm, clarity and focus.  That’s why I am going to suggest that you attend my FREE webinar.

Makes sense?  (I think it does!)

Calm, Clarity and Focus Are On The Other Side

 

What do you do when you’re feeling stressed out?  I ask that because your response to that question determines how long your stress will hang around.

Everyone has stress. It is a normal part of life. However, when you are constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, you will feel stress which can threaten your health and well-being.

If you would like to learn a powerful strategy on how to deal with your stress, then please join me for this FREE webinar.

Calm, Clarity and Focus are on the other side waiting for you.

How To Boost Your Mental Health

Did you notice during the last several months how many people were interested in learning new things:  How to play an instrument, how to knit, how to take up carpentry…?

Did you also take note that de-cluttering and getting organized was hands-down the top thing people were interested in doing?

There’s a good reason for that.  Learning a new skill can occupy your brain so thoroughly that it leaves little room for the rumination that can lead to anxiety and stress.

Researchers have found that learning a new skill can be a great buffer against workplace stress and day-to-day stress.  That’s why organization ranks so high – it helps us in our personal and professional lives.

Listen, there’s an art to de-cluttering and organization. Both require different skill sets. Most people don’t realize that and so in the process of trying to de-clutter and get organized they become very frustrated and overwhelmed.

In my upcoming workshop, Lessons Learned, you will learn “the language of organizing” and how to develop the skill set of de-cluttering and organizing in the correct manner.

Tell me, a workshop that helps you boost your mental health and learn a new skill in the process, what more can you ask for?  It’s a win-win to me.

See ya in class, yes?
