Declutter Your Responsibilities

Declutter Your Responsibilities

Every day, I get to teach people how to eliminate the mess that creates stress. But before I was a professional organizer, I was an overscheduled, overwhelmed, slightly stressed out mom. The house was a mess even though I felt like I was always cleaning. I would forget about appointments even though I was always looking at my calendar. I was tired even though I went to bed early each night. I knew there had to be a better way.

Here are 3 things you can stop doing right now If you’re ready to begin your decluttering journey.

1. Stop multitasking. Moms tend to be talented jugglers. We always have lots of balls in the air. We are proud of this talent because we believe we are accomplishing so much more than other people who can only do one thing at a time. Guess what. It’s not true. Research suggests that multitasking is less productive.

2. Stop doing it all by yourself. Make a list of all your responsibilities. Are you surprised by how long that list is? (I was!) At times, it’s impossible to get everything done because we expect so much of ourselves. Give yourself a break and get help.

3. Stop doing things you hate. Obligation and guilt are not good enough reasons to do something. Of course, there are certain things you can’t avoid like paying bills or working. However, it is possible to stop over-scheduling yourself.

Intentionally declutter your responsibilities and start to watch that messy stress melt away. You may notice your home and schedule start feeling less cluttered. You may even have more energy. Don’t get hung up on all the things you think you should be doing. Start thinking about a few things you want to stop doing.
