Can I get an Amen!
When we apply values-based thinking to our homes, it has the power to change everything — how we decorate, what we buy, what we say yes/no to, and how we connect with others.
As we are currently in the midst of the holiday season, our homes often become one big drop-spot. Between shopping, entertaining, and endless to-do lists, it’s understandable why it looks as though the eye of a tornado just ran through our living room.
When we finally do come up for air, we’re often left feeling overwhelmed and depleted, rather than peaceful and rested.
For many folks, the feeling of “house shame” isn’t limited to the holidays, but this time of year it’s often magnified when family and friends are likely to gather together.
During our conversation we talked about the common roadblocks she sees from her clients: obligation, guilt, perfectionism, shame and the inability to make a decision–which are similar to our 5 clutter pitfalls. https://simplyborganized.com/2017/01/12/episode-003-identifying-the-5-clutter-pitfalls/
We talked about how physical, emotional and calendar clutter each play a role in creating a cozy home, and Amber shares some simple tips to help you create the home you want.
Something as simple as lighting a candle or wrapping yourself in a fuzzy blanket can help you find calm and peace amidst the chaos.
