Tuesday Tidbit – Simplify Your Life Week

Simplify Your LIfe Week outtaspaceorganizing.comSimplify Your Life Week is the first week of August, and it’s a great time to pause in your fast-paced world and rediscover time for you!

Think about everything you say “YES” to:

  • Community involvement and volunteering,
  • Social engagements you just don’t have your heart in but still say yes to (maybe you don’t even like them that much?),
  • “Covering time” for a co-worker you don’t really want to, or
  • Hours on social media,

…to name just a few.

Think about how saying yes benefits you, your family, your business, your health, and your mind. If it does not bring good into your life, and does not bring you joy, learn to say “NO!”

Tuesday Tidbit – How to Eliminate a Morning Stressor

How to Eliminate a Morning Stressor outtaspaceorganizing.comApril is Stress Awareness month. Wow, an entire month. Let’s focus on just one way to reduce stress in your life and the life of your family.

According to research conducted by The Bureau of Labor Statistics, we spend, on average, 30+ minutes a day looking for misplaced items! 

That’s 7 ½ days a year! (I’d rather take a vacation!)

Being late and rushing is no fun and an unnecessarily stressful way to start your day. It can be very simple to eliminate the stress of one missing item if that item is your keys.

Designate a tray, bowl, hook, or a pocket in your purse (the SAME pocket) and make it a habit to put your keys there. EVERY time!

Then there is no searching, yelling, frustration, or rushing needed.

Really, it is that simple.
