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!)

Imagine If We Could Just Love And Care More

Sometimes when we’re feeling stuck or frustrated, the best thing we can do for ourselves is to focus on self-love and self-care.

This is not always easy for many people, especially if they have been living with physical clutter.  Clutter that hangs around too long tends to condition the way we think and feel about ourselves.

Limiting beliefs of “I’m not good enough or worthy of” can surface, which can sabotage our focus and deprive us of the very thing we need the most – love and care.

That’s where the power of mindfulness can help release these blocks and move you forward in a more positive way. This is just some of the criteria I cover in my Mindful Tools for Organized Living program.

Mindfulness Program All In One

I show you how to dig into where these limiting beliefs came from and how to rewrite them, and how to show up in life with your new story that embraces your authentic self.

We all need love and care, but more importantly, we need to give it to ourselves. Mindful Tools for Organized Living will show you how to do that and in the process unclutter your life – plain and simple.

I hope you’ll give it a try.

The Psychology Of The To-Do List

There are many benefits to writing a to-do list.  However, despite the gain, there are some people who will resist them.  Let’s take Mary for example.  Mary is an artist with a very active lifestyle. Her professional and personal life combined has her going in many directions.  Mary told me that she was starting to feel overwhelmed and some of her tasks were falling through the cracks.  When I inquired if she was using a to-do list to help her plan out her day, she informed me that “occasionally” she would scribble a few things down.

Although Mary was made aware of how a list could help manage her stress, she still resisted using one for a very long time.  She said, it stifled her flexibility. She felt that if she kept a list, it would tie her down and restrict her creativity. This is not an unusual response ( at least I found in my practice) with very creative people. They have adopted a belief that putting their thoughts down in order will somehow interfere with their creative flow.

Gradually, though, Mary came around. The busier  her life became, the more crucial it was to have some sort of running agenda on hand. Before long, not only did she embrace her to-do list but Mary even started scheduling some of those items onto a weekly calendar. In other words, she reluctantly become a planner.

Looking back, Mary admits that it wasn’t the actual writing of the list that she found so difficult, as it was the transition of doing so.  She now understands that she had emotional blocks surrounding her beliefs about to-do lists.  Once Mary was able to work through her roadblocks, she had a  different perspective of drawing up a list.  She is now in agreement that planning helps her get things done more efficiently and does not interfere with her creative nature.

Here’s the psychology of the to-do list – studies have shown that people perform better when they have written down what they need to do.  There are three reasons for this:  they dampen anxiety about the chaos of life; they give us a structure, a plan that we can stick to; and they are proof of what we have achieved that day, week or month.

Simply put, the brain loves order. That’s why being organized makes us feel so good.
