De-Cluttering Your Physical Space

July 24th, 2010 in Book Selections, Organization, Personal Growth[ 4 Comments ]

We all share many common threads in our lives.  Clutter is one of them.  Like it or not, we hold on to “things” that burden and weigh us down.   In this Universe, there is stuff hanging out taking up space and energy.   Time to recycle or destroy.

Four possible areas where clutter accumulates: 

Physical – our homes, cars and bodies
Emotional – our thoughts, feelings and reactions (actions)
Financial – our spending habits
Spiritual – our never-ending desire for connection and purpose

De-Cluttering My Life

Last Friday I spent a whole day with Dr. Carol Look (www.carollook.com) on “Clearing Clutter with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).”   Held in New York City with more than 70 people in attendance, we discussed all the different ways we collect stuff.   The range of physical things we collect, buy, hold on to just in case we need it is endless.   Holding on to stuff that never seems to be useful is based more on filling emotional needs than a real need.  

Too Much Email

managing emailToday I’ve just had it…always have too much to do on my list and I keep adding more.  Does this sound familiar to you?    Well, I’ve decided to start cutting.

Because I am busy with several different businesses, I don’t remember everything.  My “To Do” list has all the immediate and long-term reminders for both business and personal.  I do a good job in organizing the list, yet it’s still a long list.
