Spring into Action

Today's Quote: "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one." -Mark Twain

Today's Question: What could you break down into manageable chunks this spring?

How I Apply:
I absolutely love order and clean spaces so although my home never gets all that cluttered, things can pile up into disorder and I know it is becoming a challenge for me when I walk into a room and feel icky!
A lot of my clients talk about the clutter in their home or lives and the best assistance I can give with this is to find out the ways in which the clutter occurs in the first place and then how can it be broken down so that the task is not so overwhelming that nothing gets done about it?
For example, taking one room at a time then one drawer in that room and setting about it. Aim to do that one drawer and do it well. Then move on with the rest- one at a time.
This is manageable and easily accomplished.
This can be applied to many areas of your life too.
  • Finance spring clean- get honest with yourself about your finances ~ make a budget sheet for you and your family
  • Home spring clean- get honest about the amount of clutter in your home/garage ~ Make a list of every room in your home and break it down into a task list you can do over time
  • Relationship spring clean- who do you love spending time with and who completely drains you and your energy ~ use the many social media sites or simply write down the people in your life and what they provide you with and make a plan to spend more time with your cherished friends and family members and perhaps limit time with those who don't nourish you as much
  • Health spring clean-what kinds of things are you doing for your health and wellbeing ~ Make your health a priority (we only get one body in this life) treat yourself like the precious being you are and clear out the foods in your home which add to unhealthy habits and bring in more clean foods that will nourish you. You could try visiting a health food store and picking one new food a week that you can try

Good luck with the spring clean and enjoy the process of springing into action!!
