What Do You Think is the Most Asked Question I Get?

clearing out the clutter

The most asked question I get is

                                           “So, how long will it take to get rid of this stuff?”

 

The answer is so different for everyone. Clutter-Clearing is a calling-you-back-process it’s a process that happens when you clear the clutter in your life. As you free the objects you no longer love or use – you call-back to yourself the parts of your spirit and soul that have been loving and using this object in the past, calling-back the attachment to the emotional need and memories of this object – identifying what it is and then Letting Go of the object. It’s an amazing feeling . . . Being center in your life, making productive decisions from this place of power that you have created from Letting Go & Pressing On!

 

You must make a decision . . . what will you do with this object that you no longer love or use. That’s what life is right? Making decisions, when working with me – we work side-by-side with hands-on coaching to come up with decisions. In doing so, you bring yourself powerfully into the present time. When you have made a decision about this object – your energy no longer is scattered in a thousand different directions, unproductive directions, you become more centered and more focused. You feel spiritually complete and more at peace with yourself – all because you’re getting rid of stuff!

 

This happened with me – I resigned my position in 2014 as a Teacher. In my home office closet, there was a tote that I put together right after I resigned – with all my lesson plans, work samples, projects, etc. When I resigned my position as a Teacher – I felt as though I failed! Having that tote in the corner of the closet, I was always looking at it, making up stories in my head that I was a failure as a Teacher and I believe that’s why I kept the tote of stuff – validation right?

 

After coming home one day from an Organizing Session with a client, I said to myself – I need to practice what I preach. So, I took the tote out of the closet when through the stuff, and kept important things like transcripts, letters, certifications, and my ECE Award, anything that had a positive feel to it. I Took the rest of the books and dropped them off at Goodwill. Now, the only objects in my office closet is being used and loved. I have changed my mindset and the verbage I say to myself about my Teaching career. Now, I have a home office and closet with everything positive and useful that gives me that feeling of  . . . Peace of Mind!

 

All this Peace of Mind! feeling comes from simply clearing clutter – it’s life changing! It amazes me every time when I first met a client that won’t even get rid of a piece of paper that the father had on his desk in 1950s, that stuff that keeps them where they don’t grow anymore – kind of a prisoner in their own past. Then while we’re working and coaching together – I start seeing this blossom of a person that isn’t afraid of letting go, isn’t afraid of the new anymore, ready for anything, finding peace within themself and the place they live in. This can happen for you too, after you become comfortable with Letting go, you find that you bring in less and less of objects that have no use or purpose in your life.

Affirmation For The Day: All my needs are taken care of as I follow my Higher Path

7 Ways to be more mindful at work

You don’t need to block out 30 minutes of meditation, or grab your yoga mat in order to experience the benefits of mindfulness at work. First you can setup a few personal habits in the morning to get the most out of your work day – in terms of productivity and reduced stress. Here are a few ways to help you stay in the present moment to do your best during a busy week at work.

Here are 7 ways to be Mindful at work:

  1. Set your goals for the week – at the beginning of the work week, especially if its going to be a busy week. I set intentions (goals), I write them down on index cards to carry with me – ‘my intentions of the week may be to Stay Calm * Stay Present * Stay Focused.
  2. Do one thing  – Focus your attention on one task at a time. Slow down your thoughts and movements until you come back to your singular focus. At times we try to multi task with our time only to find out at the end of the week we have accomplished NOTHING. One, multi tasking does not work – it only has you running around trying to finish various projects, instead of focusing on the one project through completion and then moving on to the next.
  3. Take pleasure in your work – Have a laugh with a coworker, take a glance out the window and admire nature, sit back and appreciate yourself on all your work project completions, find something to be thankful for in having your job – there is always something to be grateful for.
  4. Give others your full attention – Stop what you are doing at the moment, really listen and pay attention to your coworker when they are talking. You need to take those few moments to really connect with coworkers that are asking for your attention – it will make them feel good and in turn it will make you feel good about yourself.
  5. Use your breaks to be in tune with your body – Do some stretches – Take short walks – Take some deep breathe – Do some yoga poses at your desk – Listen to inspirational music.
  6. Put reminder stickers around your workplace – Put some post it notes around your workplace as reminders – I put them on my computer, phone, and desk. Every time I see the stickers it reminds me to Pause * Bring me back to my Task Focus * Press forward to task completion.
  7. At the end of the day – don’t lose your mindfulness – Focus on your breathing, congratulate yourself for your mindful attitude at work today. More importantly set your intention to leave your work at the office. Carry your mindful attitude home to enjoy your time with family and friends.
