Live with Less and Choose Happiness Instead

Live with Less and Choose Happiness Instead

Hey Beautiful Soul! When is the last time you did something BIG just for you? I'm not talking about taking a bubble bath or reading a magazine. Those are nice but I want that sort of thing to be a regular occurrence in your life. I'm talking about listening to your soul and doing something that you've been dying to do for a long time but fear kept you rooted in place.

I've been ignoring the whispers inside of me that say, "Travel. That's where you'll learn the most" for longer than I care to admit. The circumstances weren't right. The money wasn't there. The kids needed me. My business needed me. It felt a little, ok, a lot selfish to me. I have stuff to do! Business to conduct! People to please!

De-cluttering Your Dreams to Make Room for What You Really Want

De-cluttering Your Dreams to Make Room for What You Really Want

Guest post by Lamisha Serf-Walls

You know that lovely airy and open feeling you get when you’ve just cleared out the single most annoying, stagnant, heavy, anxiety-inducing space in your home?

(Silly question, of course you do!  You are part of Lisa’s Clear Calm tribe.)

Yeah, I love that feeling.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit I don’t necessarily enjoy the process to getting there, but once I’m there, I am in paradise.

Usability: Why You Need to De-clutter Your Website

Usability: Why You Need to De-clutter Your Website

Guest post by Val Cline

I love clean sheets

Who doesn’t love climbing into a bed with fresh, clean sheets? They smell great, feel great and I just feel very cared for. I can just relax, surrender and enjoy. Tension just melts away in a clean calm space.

Why?

Because clutter is an energy drainer. Clutter really blocks us from doing and having the things we want (and need) and de-cluttering is a simple win for us right?

Guest post by Dr. Jenev Caddell

Today I want to share what love is all about and how you can declutter your negative patterns in love so that you can feel freed up to be happier and stronger as a couple.

The negative patterns that so many couples fall basically come down to a form of…you guessed it: Baggage.

We’ve all got it.

Problem is, we don’t always realize it.

How to Organize Kids' School Stuff at Home

How to Organize Kids' School Stuff at Home

Do you love paperwork? If you are like most of my peeps, the answer is a resounding "NOPE." Let me tell you, when I started my journey as a Professional Organizer I did not think that I would love dealing with paperwork; I used to work in a public library where we had to file government documents and omg did I hate that part of my job. Talk about tedious. I. Hated. It.

Books? I could deal with books. That was fun. But moving around pieces of paper and putting them in precise order over and over again? UGH. We could only do it in one hour increments because we'd start going cross eyed otherwise.

5 Tips to Keep On Decluttering Even When You're Exhausted

5 Tips to Keep On Decluttering Even When You're Exhausted

Decluttering can be exhausting work. I'm sure you already knew that from experience.

Recently a client said to me at the end of a four hour session, "Why is this SO exhausting? I mean I know this is hard physical work but it feels like more than that. How come?"

She hit the nail on the head with that observation. Here's the thing: it's really not about the stuff. Yes, it's very tiring to move stuff around, lift heavy boxes, and do the equivalent of 50 squats picking stuff up off the floor but that's just part of what's going on. The real stuff that's going on it that decisions are finally being made and some (ok, a lot) of those decisions are hard.

Decluttering Your Energy Field

Decluttering Your Energy Field

Guest post by Iris Arjeta

A clear, calm space has great energy. You feel expansive and free in a well-organized space. You can breathe easier, rest more deeply, and clearly know what you want and need in your life when your senses aren't overwhelmed by clutter.

You know you love this feeling, yet it's still a struggle to organize and de-clutter your home. Maybe it's because your energy could use a bit of spring cleaning.

Declutter Your Brain

Declutter Your Brain

“I’m just so busy!” seems to be the mantra of our times.

Declared with pride, yet often tinged with guilt and overwhelm, it is our collective plea for understanding, offered as an apology.

Our brains are wired to seek and solve problems.  A healthy ego helps us feel safe and secure.  But what happens when our egos operate out of fear, and our brains find so many problems to solve that we can never complete our to-do lists?  We end up with cluttered brains and that’s no fun, not to mention unproductive.
