Sometimes You Can’t Do It Alone

Sometimes it just feels too tedious, too much, too overwhelming to get things done.

As hard as you try, and as much as you want to push through, you find yourself stopping and getting frustrated.

It’s a hard battle with clutter, especially during this time of year with tax season in full gear and papers piling up.  Everything can feel, well, just too much!

This is the time when social organizing can be helpful.

Judith Kolberg writes about this in her book, Conquering Chronic Disorganization, discusses how many people find the act of organizing, sorting and weeding through difficult to do on their own.  She writes about social organizing and also body doubling, which is where an organizer sits quietly, as a silent partner, and/or can facilitate by handing over paperwork, files, etc. 

The key here is that the work would not be accomplished without the silent partner as a body double provides you with an anchor and a mirror.

Can you relate to this?  Perhaps today is the day you recognize that you’re tired of wasting time, and getting nowhere.  By working with a professional you can pull yourself out of this vicious cycle. Interestingly enough, the person helping you doesn’t have to be there in person in order for you to get things done. 

I’ve worked for years virtually, helping people de-clutter their spaces, sort through their things, organize their rooms.  There’s a level of comfort that provides the person the right dose of motivation and confidence to complete their tasks, simply by having me there to answer a question or give advice if needed. 

With the commitment of a specified amount of time and the right dose of willingness, magic happens.

Better the Balance, Better the World.

Better the Balance, Better the World.


International Women’s Day is Friday, March 8th.

The International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of  #BalanceforBetter  is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

I’m honored to be a guest speaker for a company that recognizes equality and doesn’t see barriers for moving forward.  As I prepare for my presentation, I wanted to pass along to you some information that I will be sharing with my audience.

My intention is for it to move you to great accomplishments in your life that fills your heart and those of others.

Dr. Tererai Trent is the author of The Awakened Woman; A Guide to Remembering and Igniting your Sacred Dreams.  She is an exemplary example of passing the baton forward. During an interview with Marie Forleo, she was asked, “What advice she would give to women who were having difficulty identifying their great hunger (purpose, passion) in their hearts?” 

Here’s what she had to say:

“We all have hunger for a meaningful life.  How do you tap into that hunger?  You ask, ‘What Breaks My Heart?’  Because it is in those moments, those moments of our brokenness, we realize that it is not the past, it is not the challenges in front of us.  Once we realize that, we have the power to find the solution inside.  We start to hear the stirring in our own heart pointing us to something greater than who we are.  And we find the answer to that Great Hunger.  But we must be  INTENTIONAL. “

Home, Sweet Home

Home, Sweet Home

Home, sweet home is an expression of delight/contentment on returning home after an absence.

Research suggests that it originated from a song from the opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan which was first performed at Covent Garden, London in 1823.

The lyrics were written by American actor and playwright John Howard Payne (1791-1852).

Popularized during the late 19th century it became an anthem for soldiers during the American Civil War.

Since my home is an actual cottage, I especially love these few lines:.

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble there’s no place like home!
An exile from home splendor dazzles in vain;
Oh, give me my lowly thatch’d cottage again!
Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home!

So how are you feeling about your home these days? Is your home something you refer to as home, sweet home after an absence or do you feel anxious and overwhelmed upon your return?

In a study that surveyed residents of the US and Canada on the relationship between clutter and personal well-being, the research hypothesizes that clutter might prevent people from reaping the benefits of having a home – a place commonly associated with comfort and security.
(“The Dark Side of Home” – Journal of Environmental Psychology)

One of the key findings was that:

Clutter had a negative impact on self-reported well-being and a “strong negative impact on feelings of security, safety and other positive emotional benefits derived from a sense of psychological home,” a term that refers to the concept of “home” as a “vital source of meaning, belonging, and identity.”

The one thing I know for sure is that clutter hurts. It hurts your well-being in all aspects and robs you of having a home, sweet home.

If you’re experiencing clutter and are ready to learn some powerful strategies to take back your home, you have three things you can do immediately for a better quality of life.

Well, February is almost over and I know so many of you had good intentions to resolve your clutter by now.

So let me ask you this…

Why do you think you continue to struggle?

If I had to guess, I would say that you think you can go it alone.  That it won’t take that long and eventually it will all go away and get better.  Sound about right?

Let me share something that I learned from one of the top motivational and productivity coaches in the world, Brendon Burchard.  There is something that highly productive people have in common and that is they all have support.  Whether it’s a team of people or an individual coach, they all recognize that having support is paramount to their success.

It’s the reason why I designed my on-line course, Mindful Tools for Organized Living. – to give people an on-going resource of support.

Listen, whether you’re trying to figure out how to declutter and let go of your things, or organize and find homes for your stuff, there are strategies that can help you resolve your clutter much easier and faster. If you’re struggling, it’s because you’re doing it the hard way.

Perhaps it’s time for you to commit to resolving your clutter, once and for all.

5 Ways To Journal

5 Ways To Journal

I’ve often suggest to my clients that they keep a journal to help them along their journey.

Journaling is simply writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. And if you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health.

Why is journaling good for your health?

Journaling can provide stress relief and boost your physical and mental health. Writing not only relieves stress and improves your mood, but it also boosts your immune system, which helps your body to withstand the effects of further stress.

5 Ways to Journal and Declutter Your Life

James Clear is an exceptional author who focuses on lifestyle habits that influence our productivity. He recently designed an adaptable notebook that he calls the Clear Habit Journal. The intention is to make it easier to build better habits that is rooted in the most effective behavioral science techniques.

Here’s an inside sample of the 5 different ways you can journal by asking just one question per day.

What happened today? (Daily Journal)
What am I grateful for today? (Gratitude Journal)
What is my most important task today? (Productivity Journal)
How did I sleep last night? (Sleep Journal)
How do I feel today? (Mood Journal)

I highly recommend keeping a journal, especially if you are in the midst of decluttering your life.

The benefits will be invaluable.

Stress-Free Lifestyle Tools To Conquer Clutter In The Home and Office


To Conquer Clutter In The Home and Office

Rarely is clutter recognized as a significant source of stress in our lives, yet “Eighty-four percent of recently stressed Americans say they worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough, and within that group, 55 percent called it out as a source of recent stress.” (Huff Post)

When dirty dishes are piled, laundry overflows and your belongings are scattered about, your stress level rises. Trust me when I tell you, clutter & stress is real.

It is estimated that over a course of a lifetime, we will spend a total of 3,680 hours or 153 days searching for lost items; phones, keys , eyeglasses and paperwork are at the top of the list. (The Daily Mail)

When we are stressed out, it not only creates physical clutter, but it causes mental and body clutter as well. What you may not realize is that stress is inflammatory. Inflammation breaks the mind and body down and leaves us vulnerable to sickness and disease.

This is why being organized is so important to our health.

Clutter depletes your quality of life and raises the potential for serious health issues. It is one of the major sources of stress and can exacerbate medical conditions. When a person is under the influence of a significant amount of clutter, their well-being is compromised, leaving them feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed and even hopeless.

These unsettling feelings are not only attached to the person who is struggling with clutter but their loved ones as well.  It’s not hard to understand then why the home organization industry has grown by leaps and bounds and today has 32 chapters, with more than 4,000 members in 22 countries. (Fast Company)

The same goes for the workplace. The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) found in their study that disorganization can lead to financial losses equivalent to 10 per cent of a manager’s salary. NAPO also states that 80 per cent of the clutter in the office is a result from being disorganized and not due to a lack of space.

Some studies reveal the average person wastes up to 4.3 hours a week looking for papers, which adds stress and frustration to the workplace while reducing concentration and creative thinking – while cleaning professionals  say that getting rid of excess clutter would eliminate 40 per cent of the cleaning work needed.

Understand this. When your environment is cluttered, the chaos restricts your ability to focus. The clutter also limits your brain’s ability to process information. Clutter makes you distracted and unable to process information as well as you do in an uncluttered, organized, and serene environment. (Princeton University.)

This is why including “health care strategies” for clutter control in the workplace is critical.
