Un-deck the halls, and clear the clutter

By exercising your decision-making skills, decluttering can actually increase your confidence and help you feel good about yourself, says PsychologyToday.com. Start off the new year by getting organized and you may be surprised at how empowering it feels.

  1. Schedule it. Set aside time to declutter and treat it like an appointment you can’t miss.
  2. Deal with mental clutter first. Put away your phone and other distractions. If you feel resistant to organizing, stop and write down your thoughts on paper. This may help you clear your mind and tackle the task at hand.
  3. Pick a small project. Limit yourself to one drawer or cabinet at a time. “Your resistance will always win if you expect yourself to do a large project all at once,” says com.
  4. Set a timer for 15 minutes. Sort as quickly as possible until the timer goes off. Put things into three piles: keep, maybe and donate. Seeing progress will motivate you to keep going.
  5. Get rid of the donate pile. Put it in your car or schedule a donation pickup ASAP. You’ll feel satisfied when you’ve completed the task, plus you can start enjoying that decluttered space right away.Five Star award Winner 2011- 2018 honoring the top 7% of real estate professionals in Oregon.IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!

How to re-energize after the holidays

When the rush of the holidays comes to an end, fatigue can settle in as you try to adjust to your normal routine again. Here are a few small steps you can take to regain your energy and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

Organize your desk.
It may seem like a small, menial task, but starting your week with a clean desk can do wonders for your productivity. Instead of feeling underwater in a sea of paperwork, having a clear workspace can reduce stress and encourage creativity.

Plan something.
Schedule a vacation, plan a party, or start a new project at work or at home. Having an event or a new challenge to look forward to helps you stay motivated and avoid the post-holiday slump.

Take care of yourself.
The holidays can take their toll on your mind and body, and the added stress often goes unaddressed. Take some time to exercise or do yoga, meditate, take a bath, or go to bed earlier than usual to help yourself reset.
