Do you ever wonder why we are suddenly stressed and angry? There doesn’t seem to be a reason for it. So why are those feelings there?
If thoughts become feelings and we are observing clutter then could it not be clutter that is blocking your mojo? If it is, try these simple suggestions to feel better:
-try cleaning out one cupboard, drawer, room a day till you feel you have cleared out all the negativity
-pay attention to the details. Which area or objects are bothering you the most? Start there! Sometimes it’s the markers without lids that bother us more than the desk full of paper.
-If the clutter seems impossible to get rid of or you don’t know where to start, just begin by stacking things into neat piles. This can help free your mind to know where to start. Also, one pile is much easier to tackle at a time than an entire room.
-lastly, celebrate after! Paint your toe nails, take a bath, spend 15 minutes doing something you love, or sit back with a smile and take in what you have accomplished. We are much more willing to repeat a task when it ends on a positive note.
Special note: don’t be too hard on yourself. After all, sometimes it is more beneficial to find peace in chaos instead of ending it. We get so programmed to do things “right” but what if we can find joy in the present without changing it. How powerful could that be for your life? Would you be able to see the positive now and relax into it without those “should” messages?
