Greetings and happy weekend! I’m writing this week about another cornerstone of health coaching...home environment. Our home is our sanctuary, a place where you can celebrate, rest and restore. However, when your home is in chaos, your mind and soul may end up in the same place. This brings me to my topic of the week...organization.
First off, let’s not think of this as one giant, whole house project that leaves you feeling so overwhelmed, that you give up before you even get started. Think small projects that will invigorate you, and may spark enough joy to encourage you to take on another. These projects can help you feel more in control of your life, and create and inspiring sense of accomplishment.
So, I have attached a couple pictures of two small projects in my home. One is the junk drawer in my kitchen. It gives me a knot in my neck and shoulders whenever I look at it! My current method to accessing the needed item is a 3 step process. First, I open the drawer half way, slide my hand in to the pile and press down the items in the back so the drawer will fully open. Second, I sift through the contents for some time until the needed item reveals itself. Lastly, I punch down the items again to make the drawer close. NOT a good system!
The second picture is my spice drawer. I open the drawer, scan the contents and quickly take out what I need. Much better!
Need inspiration? Check out the Netflix series, Get Organized. It follows 2 young women who are the gurus of getting chaos under control. The results are really inspiring!
These ladies started with an idea to help people bring order to the areas of their homes that have gotten out of control. As they gained a devoted group of clients, they built up to create their company The Home Edit. This then led them to land a series on Netflix, where each episode they help one celebrity client, and one regular person/family in need of organizational intervention.
So, check it out and get inspired! Maybe you just start with your own junk drawer, and see where it leads you. The rewards will leave you hungry to take on more!
Happy organizing & enjoy banishing some of the chaos from your life,
