Overwhelm

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by clutter in your home and chaos in your day-to-day life. Organizing your home means creating a space that looks good, feels clean, is calming, and runs like clockwork. Ins’t this what most of us desire? Organizing can be simple in that it boils down to what items to keep and where they should go versus what to get rid of that’s not serving a purpose. The same goes for our activities. But life has an uncanny way of taking us by surprise, time flies by, and all of a sudden your living space is cluttered and a mess. Your schedule is jam packed leaving you feeling exhausted and unfulfilled. Out of the confusion of clutter, calm can be found.

As a professional Organizer and a homemaker myself, I have struggled with finding emotional and physical freedom from the stuff I own, feeling frustrated by the systems (or lack of systems) in place, and spinning my wheels when it comes to reaching my goals. I have created a three step process to cultivate a calm, clutter-free life.

Identify Your Roadblocks

We all have obstacles that keep us from the life we want to live.  Whether a faulty mindset, bad habits, external circumstances, baggage that you’ve accumulated along the way- change can’t take place without awareness. The key is looking inward.

  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses
  • Know your personality type
  • Be honest with yourself and be self-accepting
  • Ask the challenging questions
  • Get to the root causes, but triggers bad habits
  • Recognize your blindspots

Declutter Your Life

Organizing and decluttering leads to a more simplified life.  Determining what to keep and what to get rid of includes self-examination as to why you might be holding onto stuff you don’t need, while truly figuring out what brings you joy.  Simplifying your space and schedule include getting rid of the following:

  • Items and activities that have outlived their usefulness
  • Belongings you keep due to emotional attachment
  • Cut out any commitments that are too much
  • Reduce the amount of stuff you buy 
  • Learn to say no and set boundaries
  • Create a space for all of your belongings

Overcome Unhealthy Habits

This step is the icing on the cake.  Figuring out how you function best will help you create systems that best work for you. Routines allow you to be efficient with repetitive tasks, weeding out the unnecessary tasks, and freeing up time for the things you love.
  • Change the way you think
  • Set realistic goals and don’t tackle them all at once
  • Remind yourself of the positive end result
  • Track your progress and celebrate the wins
  • Create systems and routines to get things done
  • Structure your life in a way that works for you
I have a passion for organizing and am excited for your organizational journey and the gratification that comes through decluttering. Through my blog, I strive to create calm through intentional living and organized spaces.
