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!)

There Is A Way To Rest Easy

Have you ever had a nagging feeling about something that won’t go away – and when you try to dismiss it, it just seems to get worse?

Clutter is like that. The more you try and pretend it doesn’t exist, the more it grows and grows.

It may appear at first a lot to handle to confront “things” but I can honestly tell you, the only way to resolve those nagging feelings is to do just that.

I show my clients exactly how to do it in a non-threatening way that helps them overcome their fear and overwhelm.

I’m going to be talking about how to do that and so much more in a FREE conference call on Monday. You can register for the call if you’re interested.

I hope you’ll join me.

Is Clutter Really In The Eyes Of The Beholder?

As a clutter coach who specializes in hoarding, I take heed for good reason when I hear the statement, “clutter is in the eyes of the beholder.”

The above statement references that for some there’s a level of comfort they find with their messiness and what one may consider messy another may not.

Now, if we are talking about households that periodically get out of order, or people who are not so organized but their disorder doesn’t interfere with the quality of their life, then yes, the statement carries weight.  Different people are comfortable with different degrees of  clutter.

How one chooses to live their life is their business, one may say, and although I would tend to agree, I would also have to argue that this is true up until a point as it pertains to clutter.  I say this because excessive clutter does interfere with the quality of one’s life and loved ones.

Clutter can be dangerous and a hazard for tripping and falling.  Mold and toxins grow beneath and on the clutter and are released into the air that cause breathing and health problems. And clutter can prevent a person from utilizing their home in the way it is supposed to be intended, i.e., cooking in the kitchen, sleeping in the bed, bathing in the bathroom.

Now there’s a reason why people have extreme clutter and that goes into whether or not they are hoarding their stuff or there are other reasons behind it.  But studies do show that hoarding affects up to 6 percent of the population or 19 million Americans.

To see if any red flags are raised for you, ask yourself questions like these:

  • Do you buy many of the same things over time, because you can’t find what you already have?
  • Does your stuff prevent you from having people over?
  • Are you late paying bills because you can’t find your bills?
  • Does someone complain about your stuff? Does it cause family fights?
  • Are you able to utilize your rooms they way they are designed to be used for cooking, sleeping, bathing?
  • Are there narrow “goat trails” in your house to walk through between tall mounds of stuff?
  • Are you experiencing financial hardship due to excessive shopping?
  • Has your hobby of collecting turned into an obsession of acquiring?

People often tell me that after they de-clutter (which can include their space, desk, office, home, etc.) it comes back. What I tell them is that “it” isn’t the problem – your habits are. So if your clutter is returning you need to figure out what you’re doing that’s causing the clutter to begin with.

If you’re questioning whether or not your “clutter is in the eyes of the beholder” or something more, I would like to invite you to a conference call on Monday, July 22, 2019 at 7:30 pm et.  It’s absolutely FREE and will be a very relaxed discussion where you can ask me anything you’d like.

All you have to do is simply click on the link below to register.


I look forward to the call.  Talk to you soon!








We De-Clutter For Peace Of Mind

I love teaching people how to unclutter their lives.

We strive to streamline because we are seeking peace of mind.

It’s true we want an environment that is organized, neat and tidy, but it’s the quality of life it offers us that is so appealing.

What about you?  Do you need to streamline your life?

Here are some links that can help you get started:

The Real Reason People Crave Organization

The Real Reason People Crave Organization

During one of my workshops, I asked the students to write down the reasons why it is so important for them to be organized. 

Most of the answers were the same…

  • I want to be able to find my things
  • I don’t want to be late for appointments
  • I would like to have guests over to entertain

Then I asked them to write down the reasons why it is so important for them to find their things, not be late for appointments and have guests over.

And then something interesting happened…

Just about every student sat there with a vacant look on their face, similar to a deer in headlights stare.

You see, on the surface, people can generally express why they want to be organized, but when you ask them to get in touch with it on a deeper level, they find it rather difficult to articulate their feelings.

The truth of the matter is, people want to be more organized because they crave something much deeper.  More meaningful.

The challenge is getting them to unleash the frustration, overwhelm and stress they have suppressed from playing hide-and-seek and cringing from embarrassment because they missed a deadline, showed up late or have to tell another fib about why they can’t have company over.

I have found in my 20+ some years of being in practice, that until a person can get in touch with the root cause of their clutter the cycle will continue.  It is the reason why I created Coaching Through The Clutter; Mindful Tools for Organized Living.  It is a coaching program that helps people not just release their clutter but also become more consciously aware so they can begin to make healthier choices in their life.

If you would like to learn more about this coaching program and how it can serve you, then I would love to connect with you.  Simply click HERE to schedule a FREE call with me.
















The unbearable heaviness of clutter remains heavy on my heart

The unbearable heaviness of clutter remains heavy on my heart.

I have witnessed countless women suffer from the unbearable heaviness of clutter.

Their suffering remains heavy on my heart…

Until the day arrives when they are set free from the clutter.

Unfortunately, many women procrastinate a very long time before they finally take action.  The latest research gives us a little insight into why…

“A recent study published in Current Psychology,
found a substantial link between procrastination and clutter problems.  Procrastination is closely tied to clutter, because sorting through and tossing items is a task that many people find unpleasant and avoid. It takes time to file away important papers or sort through a dining room table buried under books.”

Stress is also a huge problem with clutter.  We know that stress is inflammatory and causes problems with the immune system.  Clutter and stress are a toxic combination.

Research shows that there is a “growing body of evidence that clutter can negatively impact mental well-being, particularly among women. Clutter can also induce a physiological response, including increased levels of cortisol, a stress hormone.”
I can give you countless reasons why I advocate for women to get organized…all of them lead to a healthier life.

Check out this article from The New York Times – you’ll see what I mean.

This 1 Thing Could Be Affecting The Workplace

One In Four Americans Has Clutter

If you think clutter doesn’t impact productivity in the workplace, think again.
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. Overloading your brain forces it to divide its power, making it more difficult to sift through information, move between tasks, quickly, and have a strong working memory.
(Princeton University)
If you are an employee or an employer of someone who is suffering in the workplace, there is something you can do about it.  I’ve developed a Mindfulness Program that cuts through the clutter.  Let’s set up a time to discuss your options and see how I can help you.  Here’s a link to my calendar.

I look forward to hearing from you.

The Fresh, Free Environment

How one chooses to live is a very personal choice. However, when clutter starts to interfere with the quality of your life, it’s time to reassess your living space. If your possessions do not have a permanent place in your home, remember the Golden Rule:

“A place for everything and everything in its proper place.”

Unload The Mental Clutter

Unload The Mental Clutter  – Set Yourself Free!

Most of us are familiar with physical clutter in the home or office. We also are aware of the toll it can take on our well-being. But did you know that many people walk around with a mind full of clutter? Think about what I just said… a MIND FULL of clutter. Those words alone make me personally feel tired.

There are times when it seems like our minds work on over-drive. Either it’s something new that’s causing us to feel anxious or something from the past creeping in to haunt us. I think most people can identify with this.

But what about the type of mental clutter that stays and doesn’t go away. Where it actually holds you back and hinders you from being fully present in any given moment. Stray thoughts, fears, worries, and the list goes on, take over and control you.

Stray thoughts, fear and worry run through our minds, handicapping us from living fully.

Imagine for a moment what you could accomplish if all that mental space were freed up. Imagine how good you would feel! Imagine how different your life would be! I want that for you. I want you to live a life of freedom and have peace of mind.

I talk about this in my book, Organically Yours and I want to share this information with you! So whether you already read my book or not, I would like to extend a personal invitation to spend 30 minutes of your time with me. All you have to do is register and you will be taken to my calendar to schedule a time. But this special invite does expire this Friday, and there are only a few spots left. So you must act now!
