Have you achieved your New Year’s resolutions yet?
Do you often make a list of things that you are going to change, start doing or stop doing every January?
What happens – usually by the time February comes, that resolution list is nowhere to be found, right?
Well, that used to be me. I was the “queen” of making lists.
I thought that because it was a new year I was going to be able to change overnight and miraculously accomplish all of my goals. I learned over time that it’s just not that easy to change or start doing something new.
In order to accomplish your goals, you must be clear on the why, why do you want to achieve this goal and what your end result will look like. If you are clear on both of these things then you are ready to start making change in your life. It takes the will, a strong commitment and the inner desire to change. That is the key – to have the inner desire to change habits and behaviors in order to achieve your goals.
So, let’s start this month with a goal of clearing all the clutter in our environment so that we can live a more abundant and authentic life.
You’re probably thinking right now, well how do I do that? I can help you through this process, no problem!
5 Steps to rid your home of physical clutter:
- Start with one room at a time
- Get a small to medium size box and start filling it with items that you no longer want, need or make you happy
- Set a timer for 30 minutes and only work for that amount of time
- Book a donation pick-up ahead of time, that way you feel obligated to work on getting donations in order
- Work on the same room for one week
If you begin to feel stuck on a particular item ask yourself these questions:
– Do I really need this?
– When was the last time I used this?
– Does this make me feel happy?
If you haven’t used the item for more than one year and answered “No” to the other two questions, then it’s time to release it.
Don’t know which room to start with? Start with the one that makes you feel the most uncomfortable and stressed.
