The definition of proactive according to the Merriam Webster dictionary is, “acting in anticipation of future problems, needs, or changes”. Positive results are sure to follow when you think about things that may happen if you aren’t mindful of yourself, and your surroundings, and take proactive steps to avoid potential issues. Being mindful of yourself, your surroundings and future needs, is the first step in the process of being proactive. As you go along in life, and you see things that could potentially cause an issue in the future, for whatever reason, the next step is to determine the appropriate [...]

Yes, you too can get organized by incorporating this concept into your daily activities. I understand you have a lot going on and this may not be as easy as it sounds, but it really is that easy.  Adjusting your mindset may take a little getting use to, but it is possible. The key here is to be mindful in your daily activities. Notice when things are not where they belong and stop what you’re doing to put things back in their homes. It gets a little trickier if you don’t have homes for everything, but it is doable. When [...]

5 Strategies to Determine Want or Need

By |2020-12-18T16:32:32-06:00December 23rd, 2020|Categories: Mindfullness, Problem Solving|Tags: , , , , , |

Some of us have issues determining want or need in terms of tangible items. This may not be an issue for some, but for others it can cause a myriad of issues, such as financial, storage that leads to clutter issues, relationships, mental health, etc. Sometimes just one purchase that you want, and not need, can hit all of these issues listed above. This is when establishing priorities comes into the picture. A priority is not necessarily a need. A priority just means that something else takes precedence. This is not to say that you should never buy anything you [...]

Those Enticing Sale Emails

By |2020-11-17T13:41:18-06:00October 9th, 2019|Categories: Mindfullness|Tags: , , , |

Ahhh the allure of sale emails.  Advertising everything you can imagine in the form of products and services. Companies are very creative with their messages, some have colorful graphics, are funny and always attention grabbing. Whenever you make a purchase these days, the merchant always asks for your email address, whether you are in a store, or making an online purchase. They do this so they can continue to email their ads for sales or new products or services. However, if they are reputable companies, they will have a mechanism to opt out of their marketing emails, or manage the [...]

Cut Off The Flow of Incoming Clutter by Making Smart Choices

By |2020-11-17T13:41:21-06:00May 3rd, 2019|Categories: Mindfullness, Organizing Tips|Tags: , , , |

In this Ted Talk called ‘Can we eat to starve cancer?’, William Li talks about Androgenesis becoming out of balance and causing a myriad of diseases.  In his talk he focuses on cancer - about cutting off the flow of blood to cancer cells through food intake as an anti-Androgenesis therapy.  It’s an interesting 20-minute talk, I encourage you to check it out.  It may be a stretch, but I realized that we can do the same thing with incoming clutter by making smart choices. Things will inevitably come into our homes on a regular basis, or on an even [...]

Next Time, Just Pause

By |2020-11-17T13:41:22-06:00April 25th, 2019|Categories: Mindfullness, Organizing Tips|Tags: , , |

There is so much power in the pause. We rush around from place to place doing so many things all the time.  Every day, all day we are making decisions. It seems like we are on auto pilot throughout the day just to get everything done. Making knee jerk decisions can sometimes cause pain or stress due to the results of our actions or inactions.  And yes, inaction is actually a decision. At those times when we need to make a decision, and it can be something small or not so small, taking a pause to make a more considered [...]

Making Decisions

By |2020-12-18T13:15:48-06:00August 9th, 2018|Categories: Mindfullness, Problem Solving|Tags: , , , , , |

Sometimes making decisions is easy, other times not so much.  We all make decisions all the time, every day throughout the day.  We don’t think twice about many of them since they are part of our daily routines. We usually make these types of decisions quickly because they are not complex and may be repetitious.  The brains working memory only holds about 7 items.  More than that is processed into long-term memory which requires conscious effort. There are always choices or options to consider in order to make decisions. A decision ‘is the act or process of deciding’ according to [...]

Ingrained Beliefs

By |2020-11-17T13:41:28-06:00January 10th, 2018|Categories: Mindfullness, Problem Solving|Tags: , , |

What are ingrained beliefs?  The definition of ‘ingrained’ in terms of beliefs, according to Cambridge Dictionary is, “so established that they are difficult to change.” Difficult to change, but not impossible.  We begin to learn ingrained beliefs at a very early age.  Some may not be as formal lessons, but in the words and actions we absorb through others in our environment. The ‘others’ can be family members, friends, and school teachers, as well as communications through the media.  Some people communicate in a variety of compelling ways.  We as humans have the faculty of free-will.  Through free-will we get [...]
