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.

When I ask women why they think they have clutter, they usually say it’s because they have trouble with following through.
I explain to them that if procrastination is their chief complaint, it usually is a symptom of something else.
Then I flip the situation around and ask them this question:
How often do you tell someone else that you’ll do something and then not follow through?
And their answer in most cases is always the same…”Not very often.”
You see, sometimes the problem is that we place more value on making commitment to others than we do for ourselves.
Unfortunately this comes at a huge cost.
Then it’s time to ask…
At what price am I willing to pay for the consequences of doing this?
Because the cost can be high.
It’s been determined that clutter creates an unhealthy environment, which leads to an unhealthy life.
But luckily, I have the antidote to help you combat this.
It’s 20+ years of proven strategies that are all inside my Mindfulness Workshop.

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.
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.

Unlocking The Mystery Of Clutter Through Mindful Conversations
When I began my career as a Professional Organizer, I quickly realized that people didn’t feel very comfortable talking about their clutter. As a result, I found myself asking a lot of questions to try and get them to open up.
When I started to see the results powerful questions had on people as they became more comfortable talking about their clutter, everything changed. Before long, I knew this would help unlock a lot of the mystery behind clutter. It’s one of the reasons why I became a Coach.
Instead of people wanting a quick fix, they were now interested in going deeper and looking at the root cause of their clutter.
So how about you…
Can you see yourself being comfortable enough to talk about your clutter?
Really think about that for a few moments because your answer to that question will help you begin to understand the relationship you are having with your clutter.
If you can easily see yourself taking a deeper look into the root cause of your clutter, that’s fantastic! You’re on your way to a clutter-free life.
However, if you feel uncomfortable with that idea for any reason, you can start changing it today.
Like it or not, clutter has a huge impact on the quality of your life and influences a lot of your decisions in life.
So I’d like to help you develop a healthy relationship with your clutter. Not only to declutter your life but to gain a richer understanding of why you have the clutter to begin with so you can finally be free of it for good.
And let me tell you something…
Once you become comfortable talking about your clutter your whole world will change for the better. You will start to notice how other relationships in your life will improve.
It’s so much easier than you think!
Here’s a fun exercise you can do to help you start feeling more comfortable with talking about your clutter…
Beginning today, select a clutter buddy, someone that you feel comfortable sharing with. It could be a dear friend, family member or a person that has clutter challenges as well. Make sure they are positive, uplifting people.
Ask them if they wouldn’t mind spending about 5 minutes with you, either by phone or in person, to talk about something. Set up the appointment.
Next make a list of all the clutter you no longer wish to have in your home. Next to each item, reference any notes that come to mind about the memory of the item. Then briefly write an explanation as to why you are ready to let go. After that, recap your feelings with how you are going to feel once you are clutter free.
Show up to your appointment with your clutter buddy and share everything you wrote down with them. Then ask them to mirror back to you what you just shared with them.
Notice how you feel. Lighter, happy, relieved, cleansed…breathe into that feeling and exhale. Imagine what your life would look like, feel like, without the clutter.
Close the conversation with thanking them and asking if they wouldn’t mind being your clutter buddy until the items on your list are eventually gone.
Shatter the Pattern
I believe in you.
I KNOW that you are capable of living a clutter-free life.
However, if you don’t believe that’s true, you will be putting limitations on your efforts and how far you can follow through. Thus, sabotaging your good intentions.
If you’d like to make a quantum leap that shatters your pattern of acquiring clutter, it’s necessary you put some additional effort into becoming more mindful.
You do that by building the idea of living in a clutter-free environment. What words come to mind? Then ‘feel’ these words as often as possible.
Get quiet and go ‘inside’ for about five minutes, three or four times a day, and feel as though you are already living clutter free.
When you “feel” what it would be like to live this way you invoke real powers within you.
You see, your subconscious mind magnifies whatever you deposit or impress upon it whether it is the idea of living clutter-free or with clutter.
Choose clutter-free living.
Choose the Right Words
In addition to picturing and feeling a peaceful, free life, use affirmations and phrases that resonate with you.
Don’t choose “pie in the sky” phrases that you don’t believe. That will put you in the wrong vibration. Choose words and phrases that, when you’re saying them, they make you feel better. My favorite phrase for living a clutter-free life is:
Everything in its place and a place for everything.
Remember, if you say, “I am an organized person,” but deep inside you really think, “This is just a bunch of nonsense; I’ll never be that way,” your subconscious mind will reject the affirmation.
Why is this so?
Because your subconscious mind accepts what you really feel to be true, not just idle words or statements.
Think how glorious and beautiful your new living arrangements will be once you are living a clutter free life. Expand upon that and allow yourself to feel it. Say powerful, positive words and statements to yourself that support that feeling.
Do it…and keep doing it for the next 30 days.
P.S. You might think all of this is just some malarkey. It is not. You’re sending messages to your subconscious mind.
Commit to doing this exercise, and let me know how you make out. Do it. You’ll be happy you did!

YOUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CLUTTER
In my new Mindfulness Course, I talk about the Dance of Clutter and the personal relationship one has with their disorganization.
You see, the way you interact with your clutter is very revealing to how you not only feel about the clutter but yourself as well.
The clutter, I go on to explain, is a reflection of thyself because it is your outward manifestation of what is going on for you internally.
The good news is that you can absolutely learn how to have a new relationship with your clutter – and a healthy one at that. You can create a living environment that reflects the healthier you as well.
I am offering a FREE INTRO CALL to introduce my new program, Mindfulness Tools for Organized Living. I have combined over 20 years experience into this program with careful execution and lots of love.
Currently I am teaching this course at various learning centers but I will be offering it on-line with personal coaching options for my clients.
