Last week, we asked the question; “Does clutter in our physical environment of any kind, have an impact on the changes we attempt to make in our lives?”
… and the Answer is Yes!
Physical Clutter in our surroundings competes for our attention, resulting in decreased performance & productivity.*
Many people don’t realize that there is a physiology effect of clutter, which may result in:
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, or anxious.
Affects our relationships, our health, and our ability to enjoy life.
Creates a sense of hopelessness, and can even contribute to depression and other mood disorders.
In light of our continued climate of COVID, which requires extensive health and safety precautions, we would love to share with you our virtual organizing offerings. Next week, we will take a look at virtual versus on-site organizing…. Stay Tuned!
“Stay With Me… We are going somewhere”! As we reflect on our past, we must anticipate revelations for our future. I believe that the turning point for us to find Order in the continuous chaos, is realizing that the one and only thing that we can change are ourselves. One day, I heard a missionary say, “it is not how the situation looks, it is how we look at the situation”. Now is the time for us to take a real serious look at what we want and need in life. Now life is not perfect, nor should we expect it to be, but there should be some semblance of Peace and Order.
Take a few moments to invest in our future. Jot down some notes about our life as we know it today…. we might be amazed at how our life looks on paper!
Take a look at those things that we would like to see changed, Big and small.
Does clutter in your physical environment of any kind, have an impact on those changes? We will talk a little more about this next week…
Remember, it is very difficult to change something, without understanding our current state and our desired outcome.We must keep moving forward!
Last year, Order Your Steps hosted an absolutely AWESOME workshop entitled “DeClutter Your Mind” and as I was going through our videos, this particular message “Silencing the Noise” by Jewelle Daquin is so appropriate to help us to cope with our challenges of today.
