Do you have the same sense of urgency when it comes to musty boxes in your basement or your file cabinets jammed with unimportant papers? Probably not...
Many, many, smart, with-it people are in this boat, too. They NEVER CONSIDER this connection:
Clutter and stagnant energy have a direct impact on your HEALTH and WELL-BEING. It blocks the path to your truest, wisest self.
Clutter and chaos in your home is an often unidentified cause for all kinds of ailments. It is a hidden (or not so hidden), sneaky, pull on your energy--affecting you more than you realize.
Got emotions running the show?
Every. Single. One. Of my clients reports this at some point in our initial conversation: “...I’m SO ashamed...really embarrassed that it got this way in the first place. Now, I’m just so stuck, and the anxiety I feel about my __________(fill in the blank with your current stuck spot) is PARALYZING me!”
The EGO feeds on this--making it larger than life, very often keeping us in this perplexing and frustrating situation. Remember, it’s just your emotions, thank them for reminding you that actions needs to be taken. Then, take a deep breath, get yourself in gear, and begin! Somewhere!
How about Aches and Pains, OR, Strrrrrrrrrreeeeeesssssssss?
The correlation between stress (and the physical ailments it produces) and clutter has been documented by the Princeton Review. If you’re interested in reading the article, message me, I’ll dig it up for you :) Here are JUST A FEW of the physical manifestations that I have seen from living in a space filled with clutter and chaos: headaches, backaches, neck aches, stomach aches, extra weight, low energy, insomnia and STRESS--which is responsible for MORE than 80% of ALL diseases.
WOW! It blows me away that handling the stale energy in your living space can “cure” what ails you. But, I have seen this with my own eyes, over and over again. When you think about it, our homes are an extension of our lives; we are the glorious creatures who purchased and put (or forgot about) all of the STUFF! And, now we’re lifting the curtain to see the “fix” for what’s keeping us playing small and from living the life we TRULY desire!
Time for Transformation
The good news is if you make this connection between the sluggish energy in your space and how you feel--emotionally and physically--clearing your clutter will rise closer to the top of your priority list.
BECAUSE, WHO DOESN’T WANT TO FEEL BETTER?
One powerful way to get started
- Put some time on your calendar--make an appointment with yourself, or maybe trade with a friend--1 or 2 hours, max.
- Turn on some good music.
- Have bags and boxes handy BEFORE you start so you don’t have to go looking.
- Pick the place where you know you can have success; the “easy” place where you can complete the job and celebrate! Maybe it’s the pantry, one box from the basement, the junk drawer in your kitchen, or a shelf or two of books. And then follow the checklist in your Toolkit (If you don’t have yours handy, message me, I’ll get one to you ASAP!).
- Once you have success with one area, no matter how small, that secret fuel will jet you into the next and the next and the next--see how this works? The ripple effects are amazing and soon you will standing and staring, hands on hips, with the biggest smile EVER, feeling proud, satisfied and FREE!
Then you’ll be spending your time reading spy novels, eating froyo, paddle boarding with friends, playing bunko, or dreaming up your new business!
