Lessons Learned: A Framework For Organization

 

I learned a long time ago that there is so much more to organization than meets the eye.

Organization is a platform for real growth to occur and breeds an environment that is conducive to wellness for your body, mind and environment.

Because I believe in the power of organization, I would like to invite you to my upcoming workshop:

Need A Boost? Start Self-Caring.

​​​Okay, so here’s the deal on motivation…

If you lost your mojo, can’t get out of your own way, procrastinating, and just can’t get it together, and you’re not self-caring at this point, don’t expect motivation to come knocking at your door.  The truth is, if you’re not self-caring, you’re not even in the game of motivation.

Lack of motivation is usually due to fatigue and stress.  So we know to combat this we must self-care.  Now, self-care is not just about taking bubble baths…(lol) it’s much deeper than that.  You can start with the regular rituals; meditation, exercise, diet and sleep – these will all help build and boost the immune system and therefore enhance Serotonin, Dopamine, etc., levels in your brain. 

Also, eating too much junk food and abusing alcohol and drugs will mess with your brain of course, so that will affect your motivation.  What you need to understand is that  motivation is neurobiological as well.

Now, another big thing is to make sure your environment is conducive to wellness.  That means, less is more.  Your living space and work space should be neat and tidy and organized –  no clutter.  Studies prove that clutter messes with your brain – i.e., gives you clutter of the mind and causes stress and overwhelm, therefore, diminishes productivity.

Now, once you’re starting to get back into the game of motivation and you’re feeling much better – the key to productivity is to have your eye on the future – meaning, you have to have a goal.  Hope for something to go after.  Without this, you will just be surviving not thriving – and we don’t want that. 

So you must begin with a Life Goal. Now that may seem contrary to what we’ve been told all these years – such as we need yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily first.  After you devise your life goal, then you start working backwards toward the other goals.  Without a life goal, you’re just skimming through life without a purpose and there’s no bigger productivity killer than that. 

So there you have it.  Remember, self-care is self-love.  Start today – it’s never too late.

In A Funk?

So, you’re in a funk, huh?

Let’s look at some reasons why this happens and how to get yourself out of it.

Fatigue:  It’s Time For Recovery

Your body is telling you that it needs better care.  Fatigue can feel like a bad hangover, only this hangover is from lack of sleep and a poor diet.  Pay attention to how you are managing your body. Treat your body like a Temple.

Reaction:  Understand Your Triggers

What are you reacting to – Rude comments? Negative thoughts? Past sadness? Upsetting email? Your triggers can cause overwhelm and stress. Journal your feelings to release and get clear.

Rumination:  Move Around

Are negative thoughts playing over and over in your head – like a merry-go-round you can’t get off of?  When this happens you need to interrupt the pattern by moving around or changing your location.  Get up, move, stretch, bounce around,  go for a walk or run.  Just move.

Here are some additional things you can do:

Set an intention for the next hour.  What would be a win for you?  What will make you feel better so you’re back in charge? (not the negative thoughts) How can you take back control?  It could be something very simple. Little things go a long way.

Turn on the positivity.  Listen to a podcast, audio book, youtube, read a book.  This helps reset your mind.

Tackle an action.  Make the bed, clean your desk, do the laundry, empty the dishwasher. Anything that makes you feel productive will help shake the funk.

Share your feelings.  Don’t be afraid to confide in someone with how you’re feeling.  Seek professional support if needed.

PS:  Be mindful of your clutter build up during this time.  If you need support you can schedule a FREE call with me by CLICKING HERE.
