Well Being | Shame Free Organizing
Getting on my soap box here to tell you what I don't want you doing! I want you to stop being hard on yourself. No more negative self talk. Don't fall into the trap of feeling guilty and ashamed of how and where you are not measuring up. YOU get to decide what your priorities are and what you will or will not prioritize. And I know, this is not necessarily easy to do, but it can be VERY empowering. Take today and the next day and the day after that to focus on what you want to do and what's most important to you (and then let the other stuff go!). This could be stuff stuff or actual commitments or just things you feel obligated to do, but don't really need to be doing. Take back your time and your health and your well being by being razor focused about what you will and will not do. And of course, feel free to delegate, outsource, say no - you get the idea! Thank you for tuning into this seasonal release of the podcast. Please subscribe, review the show, and let me know what else you'd love to hear about. Cheering you on!!!

Do you ever feel like you can't get focused? Like you are zig zagging from one project to the next? Me too. It's a real reality that most of us struggle with from time to time and sometimes way more than we'd like. Many of my friends and clients have shared with me that they deal with ADHD. It's something that affects many people and it can make it much harder to focus on tasks. I want to first validate you in the frustration you may feel with this challenge and also provide you with some tactical tips that may help you to organize your life and minimize some of the distraction. Life is messy indeed and how we manage the mess has an impact on our sense of peace and purpose. And don't forget to join the MWM Community and consider joining the Fall Organizing Challenge too!
