I wasn’t always a naturally organized person. In fact, I would be whatever you would call the exact opposite. Borderline hoarder over here. However, I have found the amazing mental and physical benefits that can be gained from being a more organized person. Of course, this isn’t something that will just happen overnight. I get that. That’s why I put together this list of tried and true methods for slowly shifting from a messy hoarder into an organized person.
Never did I ever think I would be someone who thrived in a routine type setting. Although I suppose it seems natural since my brain tends to be all over the place. Having a schedule seems like a necessary thing that prevents my life from being total chaos. While I do not live on a super strict schedule (in my opinion), doing a sort-of time-blocking system has really proven effective for homeschooling while running my own online business from home.
A few years ago I got super swept up into the wide-world of goal setting. It all started when I started the blog. I paid for trainings that continually told me to set goals to grow my blow. While I do love this concept and see where the benefits lie, I also found goal setting to be a bottomless pit of despair. That might sound dramatic, but that’s pretty much what it felt like. As I quietly snuck out of the goal-setting culture I began to find that there were others like me and that this whole goal-setting thing can actually lead to so major setbacks. If you’ve been struggling with setting and sticking to your goals, here are some reasons why it might not be working for you.
You’ve probably learned by now that the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 can persist for hours or even days on surfaces. And you might be wondering what that means and the home cleaning routine for your wellbeing.
A lot of people have this misconception that because I call myself a minimalist I must really love organization or something or that I am naturally just a very zen, totally put together human being. In fact, the exact opposite is true. I have enough stress and chaos in my life that I don’t want my home to add to it. That’s why I have completely rearranged my life so that I am cleaning less. In fact, I would say I cut my cleaning time in (more than) half. Here’s how you can follow suit.
They say a clear space helps clear your mind and improves your mood. You have the desire to declutter your space. You want the minimalist living that everyone talks about, but keeping your focus or attention for that long seems daunting. You might struggle even getting out of bed in the morning and as much as you want the results, taking the time to actually declutter seems like an impossible feat. I get it and let me tell you, you deserve the benefits of living a clear space that lights you up and brings you peace. That’s why I put together this step by step plan for decluttering when you’re depressed.
