Decluttering and organizing doesn'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 I've found this is a major procrastination technique 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 that's "hard"), it just scrambles it around a bit 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 your brain is feeling scrambled and overwhelmed, take a moment to ask yourself, "Is there a simpler, easier way to do this?"
Then try that way. If it doesn't work, THEN you can complicate it.
This can apply to just about anything!
Often the hard thing is what we need to do regarding jobs, feelings, etc., but sometimes even with these there's a simpler, easier way that's actually more fulfilling. We just need to allow the time and space to figure it out - a walk, a new perspective, some deep breaths, a drink of water.
It can also just a moment of clarity when we take a step back...
