Decluttering and organizing don't have to be hard!
"Simple and easy, simple and easy..."
These words have been my guides for the last few months and have run through my head countless times.
I don't know about you, but I have a tendency to overcomplicate things and be a perfectionist...
I realized these are procrastination techniques my brain sneaks in.
The more complicated it is, the longer I tend to put it off. So when my brain doesn't want to do something (pretty much anything it thinks is "hard"), it just scrambles it around and makes it complicated.
Since this is a post about keeping things simple and easy, I'm going to keep this post simple and easy and just say...
When our brains feel scrambled and overwhelmed, when our minds are telling us something is 'hard,' we often have the option to stop what we're doing and ask ourselves:
Is there a simpler, easier way to do this?
Am I getting in my own way?
Maybe take a drink of water, go to the bathroom, take some deep breaths...
If no simpler, easier ways come to mind right away, we can ask the questions, then walk away - take a walk, do something else, and be open to answers coming at any time.
When I do this, I often blow my own mind.
Try it the next time you find yourself procrastinating or saying/thinking something is going to be 'hard.'
Let me know how it goes!
