Let the Freshness of Spring Refresh You

Fresh cool breezes, birds a chirpin', colorful blooms opening here and there...ahh, glorious Spring!

Try this motivation tip this week: Go out and enjoy the outdoors!

I know, this sounds like it has nothing to do with getting organized, but it actually has everything to do with being in the right frame of mind to tackle the job with clarity and perspective.

Going through the sorting process requires a great deal of decision making. It also taxes your emotions, as you come across various items that evoke memories of all kinds. We sometimes procrastinate and dread approaching our organizing projects for these reasons.

Taking a brisk walk outside, going for a bike ride, or eating your lunch on the patio, can be invigorating and can help get your organizing juices flowing.

Look ahead at your schedule this week. Where have you blocked off time to work on getting organized? Set aside at least 10 minutes before these scheduled sessions to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. If it's raining, grab your umbrella and some protective shoes and jump in some puddles as you go out to get the mail!

Enjoy the vitality of Spring! Let it energize you, refresh you, clear your mind, and get your organizing engines running! Go forth and organize!

About Nancy:

I'm a mom, wife, professional organizing consultant and speaker, and a former Early Childhood educator. A personal crisis in my own life took me from perfectionism to total mayhem. I want neither. I'm now all about balance and being realistic about what I and my clients can maintain. My organizing business Real Solutions For Living was started to: 1) let people know they are not alone in their struggle to overcome clutter chaos, 2) to help them reduce their stress, 3) to help them gain back control of their spaces and lives, and 4) to offer realistic, practical, and down to earth solutions. I love what I do!
