How to Stay Organized

Benefits of a Clutter-Free Life

More space ~ More energy ~ More time

Less stress ~ Less expense ~ Less work

Man is obviously stressed, not coping

There have been times in my life when I felt out of control. No matter what decisions I made, nothing seemed right. Daily activities overwhelmed me. I had difficulty focusing on projects and I knew deep down in my heart I was not in a good place. You, too, might have encountered these feelings from time to time. Certainly life-changing events have a strong impact on inner feelings and outward expressions, but more often than not, clutter has the same profound effect.

When your space, work or home, is cluttered and disorganized, other areas of life are muddled as well. Experts tell us (and I know from experience), that there is a direct correlation between inner-self and personal environment. Clutter zaps energy and produces sluggishness. Piles of accumulated stuff make it difficult to concentrate or even complete simple tasks. Peace and contentment erode as clutter builds. No matter what forces are dragging you down, you can dramatically improve your life, both personally and professionally, by tackling the excess—clutter. When you begin to face the demons of clutter and learn how to stay organized, you will begin to experience abundant living. The choice is yours. It is time to eliminate clutter’s stressful impact by incorporating life management skills and utilizing those skills on a daily basis.

Yes, it is important to GET ORGANIZED,
but the next action step is to STAY ORGANIZED!

Obtaining a clutter-free life

Excerpted from: “Your house is your home only when you feel you have jurisdiction over the space.” ~Joan Kron, Author of HOME-PSYCH

Stephanie Roberts, a recovering ‘clutterholic,’ discovered that clearing away the clutter was more than just uncovering the surface of the dining table. It leads to discovering the real you and what makes you truly happy. There is freedom when there is breathing space. Once the clutter has been eliminated, your thoughts turn to staying organized and that is where the old adage, “a place for everything and everything in its place” takes over. When items have a place to live, you know exactly where to go to get what you want.

Abundant living means needing what you have
and having what you need.

The Challenge

3 steps to goal--action changes things

The process of clutter clearing is not easy. It requires searching your soul, shifting priorities, and approaching daily tasks in a new way. It involves changing behaviors and choosing wisely. There is always more than one solution for a problem; there is no right way to declutter, only what is right for you! Each situation is unique and every challenge should be approached differently. One person’s solution may be just what you need; another may be suitable for someone else. Take the process one-step at a time. If you need help along the way, ask. As an Organizing Coach, I am here to help you reach your goal.

One task at a time, one day at a time,
you can accomplish any goal you set for yourself.
