Believe it or not, clutter doesn’t just impact your physical environment.  One thing that it impacts is your physical body.  Think about how you’ve felt before when you’ve walked into a cluttered space.  It’s confining, it seems to suck all of your energy and makes it hard to focus on what you’re doing.  In cluttered office spaces you may have had the feeling of something coming over you when you walk into the space.  Have you ever had one of these experiences when you walk into a cluttered space?

When we clear the clutter and address the underlying reason for it being present, it paves the way for us to release other things.  For example, once you let go of the clutter, it paves the way for you to release excess weight.  And likewise, when you loose weight, you feel the need to get rid of the clutter that’s in your environment.  The two are directly connected.  One is a reflection of the other.  To deal with either one of them you have to change your perspective and look at what lies beneath to get rid of your clutter once and for all.

We live in such an excessive society.  Everything is bigger these days-our homes, our cars (although that seems to be shifting), even the meals that we eat.  As a society we waste so much.

We also waste our time.  The difference is that time is something we don’t have in excess.  We each get the same amount of time each day and once it’s spent, it’s gone for good.

How much of your time are you wasting?  Do you honestly know where your time is going?  On average, individuals spend any where from 1.5 to 2 hours of each work day searching for things-files, documents on their computers, contact information, and the list goes on.  Not to mention the other ways that time gets wasted.  Multiply that wasted time by 5 work days and that’s 7.5 to 10 hours every week when nothing is getting done.  With typically 20 work days in each month, that’s 150 to 200 hours of wasted time every month for the average individual, which means that there are a lot of “to-dos” that aren’t getting done.

So, how do you know you’re wasting significant time?  Begin by… Click here to continue reading

We all have junk drawers–in the kitchen, the office, the bedroom.  Whether  you have one or more, they accumulate a lot of things since they’re the catch-all for the things that don’t have a home.

It doesn’t have to stay that way.  You can bring order to your junk drawer.  To start the process, measure your drawer and purchase a drawer organizer with adjustable dividers.  Start by dumping the entire drawer out onto a surface with enough room for you to work and start sorting the items.  Decide what to keep and what you’re going to throw away.  Also create a pile of things that don’t belong in the drawer and put them away once you’re done.  If you can no longer use it, get rid of it.  Make a decision about everything in the drawer.

Once you’ve done that, insert the drawer organizer and adjust the dividers as needed to fit your items into the various sections, then start adding items to teh drawer, placing like items together.  Only put items that you actually use into the drawer and palce the items that you don’t  use so often toward the back of the drawer.

On a regualr basis, purge the drawer of things that you don’t use and if there is something that doesn’t belong in that drawer don’t put it in there!

Clutter can have a great impact on your life and can really fool you about what it actually does.  Take a look at what clutter can do to your life by clicking here.

The number of people using Smart Phones has significantly increased in the last year.  Do you have a Smart Phone?  If you do, are you being as smart as the phone?  Smart Phones are well equipped to support us in all that we do, but some times we don’t remember that.  Instead we let the things we store in them become a source for stress with long lists, backed up email e-mail and incomplete tasks.

Don’t forget that these Smart tools are the tools that make our lives easier and
stress free, but they can’t do it all by themselves.  You have to be a part of that process.  If you’ve got a Smart Phone and you’re still stressed over what’s on your agenda, then it’s time for you to sit down and take the time to grasp hold of that wonderful tool in your possession.  Utilize it to help organize all of the aspects of your life.  That’s what it’s meant for.  Learn about all its features and put each of them to use so that you can stay on top of the game and remain stress free.
