Every year “Get Organized” makes it to most New Year’s Resolution lists.
The first step to successfully fulfilling this resolution is identifying the source of disorganization and then working to eliminate it.
More often than not, the avenue to disorganization is excess stuff or clutter in your environment (home and/or office).
Start by becoming your own advocate for change. You know you better than anyone else.
Do you shop when you are bored? Do you bribe your kids with toys and treats? Do you stock up, just in case of an emergency? Keep in mind, our shared COVID year is an anomaly and I know we’ll all have toilet paper well into 2021!
How about at work? Do you file important documents all over the top of your desk? Do you fill your work-space with items not work related?
These are just some of the ways that clutter can invade our lives and weigh us down.
My specialties include Real Estate Staging and Clutter Clearing. I am often hired by Real Estate Agents and Retirement Planning professionals to assist their clients with getting organized. These business professionals are working hard to help clients take the next important step in their lives and they know that the process is not an easy one.
While my expertise is grounded in solid Feng Shui practice, I also provide council to my clients as they are making these life decisions.
One of my clients, Orna (pictured above in the Himalayas), is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Stratford, Connecticut. She has been helping couples for decades. Orna shares how caring and making decisions about the home impacts marriages and how decluttering can help save it,
“Some years ago, I saved a marriage in one session with a suggestion to hire a cleaning person. If it sounds simple, that’s because it was. As a family therapist for over 40 years, I’m well aware of how important a person’s home environment is to their mental and relational health.
I’m also aware that most of us suffer from an accumulation of extra stuff that clutters our lives and our homes. Decluttering the environment requires time; it also requires making decision after decision. For those suffering from “decision fatigue,” the task may feel overwhelming.
And so enters Joan Law of FSJW. She has an uncanny ability to remake environments with minimal effort and is not afraid to roll her sleeves up and do the work with her clients.
Before recommending Joan to my clients, I worked with her at my own house. In a couple of hours, one bedroom became spacious and airy and another decluttered in record time. Joan transformed a daunting and dreaded task into a pleasant afternoon. As family therapists with system thinking and training, our work covers a lot of bases that affect our clients. The home and work environments are important bases to cover.
When I recommend Joan Law to clients, I have full confidence that she will make a difference in their lives and make my work easier and more productive.” Orna Rawls
Clearing clutter can feel great! And once you get started it is easy. The feeling of accomplishment that shedding clutter weight creates gives you an energy that will have you plowing through the rest of those resolutions in record time.
Take the time for a Feng Shui inspired clutter clearing session and finally take “get organized” off your list for good.
Heck, with that task done, you might even get climbing to the top of the Himalayas on this year’s resolutions!
