Want to Improve Your Focus? Reduce Clutter this Spring!

Spring is almost here! When the seasons change it’s a good opportunity to reduce clutter in your life by cleaning your personal space.  

Organization is important for your memory.  Physical clutter creates mental clutter which promotes BSOS (Bright Shiny Object Syndrome). The more distracted you become, the tougher it is to store recallable memories.  In addition, clutter creates stress which also negatively effects brain health and memory. As a result, when you are spring cleaning your personal space, you are also cleaning your mental space.

Mommy Organizing Tips from a Professional Organizer

Have you noticed that your house has changed from from “everything in its place” to “where did all this stuff come from?” Does the phrase “go clean your room” meet with a look of confused silence? Have you ever suffered a painful injury from stepping on Legos or other small toy parts?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are probably a parent. Whether or not you were organizationally challenged before welcoming a blessed little one (or two) into your space, no doubt their addition has changed the look and feel of your once-calm home.

Getting Organized for Life

The key to success in anything is the ability to make decisions that move you toward your goal.  Avoiding decisions grinds action to a halt creating both physical clutter and mental clutter.

Every day we are continually inundated with information and interruptions. Emails, instant messages, social media, paper mail, responsibilities at work and home demand our time and attention. The ability to make a quick and clear decision can mean the difference between losing hours of time and creating piles of clutter or a clear mind and clear desk.
