Pillosophy of the Day: Remove the Clutter from mental space and physical place

" Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!
~Og Mandino"

We accumulate so much clutter in our life; from physical items, to negative memories, people, and junk.  I think that a healthy life starts with a clear mind and space. When my mind and living quarters are clear I feel rejuvenated, light and free.

My home and my workspace are where I exude peace and creative energy. Why does their need to be things surrounding my space? Same for you, why do you have those entire extra ‘things”?

I enjoy meditation, especially during work and when I come home.  On my daily commutes I reflect and then clear my mind and allow myself to be a vessel for positive energy. The morning’s I skip this, end up being a stressful day.

*Remember you are behind the wheel of this thing called your life. Take the time to make it worth your while and enjoyable.

Practice Meditation at home in a quiet space for 5 minutes. Allow this to be your daily ritual of peace and clarity. Discard all the Negative BS that you are about to face or have faced that day.

Meditate when you feel a craving for toxic garbage. Speak to yourself and

At Work:
  • Completely clean off your desk piles, and clean your work area.
  • Sort your piles in Trash, Delegate, Right now and tomorrow.
  • Purge computer files you don’t keep, minimize the icons on your desktop
  • Clean out your drawers (when you have the time) and toss out those weird sauce packages, organize loose items
  • Alphabetize your folders. Nothing is worse than scrambling for an important document. Talk about Stress.
  • Set priorities in order to meet your deadlines. 

In your Home:
  • Clear out your closet, and remove all those items your are hoping you will fit into one day. You haven’t in a long time, so get rid of it.
  • Donate, Donate. Donate. It’s a good selfless act, and there are others in need besides you.
  • Set value on your items, do you love it so much you can’t part ways with it? Or can it move into the bucket of over and done with it?
  • Set a routine for doing upkeep and chores. Sometimes we make excuses why the house is messy and why we don’t have time to do it.
  • The longer you wait…the more likely you will be featured on an episode of Hoarders.
Practice keeping a clear space. Don't fall back into lazy habits and allow your areas to accumulate junk. This increases the feeling of anxiety and makes the flow of creativity less effective. Remember you are in control, and this is your life.
Give it a try and good luck.
