Clutter is Out. Minimalism is In.
Here are your 8 New Habits to a Healthy Living Environment. Minimalize Your Life and Get Control Today!
Clutter creates confusion and stuck energy. If you don’t believe me, look at your life and notice the difference in the way you feel between before and after your space is clean and organized. Aren’t you less stressed and anxious after you put a shine on your surroundings? Put things away or get rid of them. Studies show that the less you have in your space – the more healthy and positive you feel and the more healthy and positive you feel – the better you do in life. You’ll even breathe better!
Here are your 8 New Habits to a Healthy Living Environment:
- Make your bed: it takes a minute or less and encourages you to keep going
- Eliminate piles of dirty clothes: hang up and put away the rest
- Put things back where they belong: this encourages a “take charge” attitude
- Shut drawers, cabinet doors, and closets: your brain can’t focus in chaos
- Create more shelves and storage areas: everything needs a place to rest
- Sort mail: Throw away/recycle. Put away. Or just put in pending folder. Get it sorted and out of those piles!
- Shine the kitchen sink. A clean and harmonious kitchen means better sleep
- Get in the habit of donating: assume if you’re not using it, it’s creating clutter
Try practicing these new habits and let me know which ones work best for you as well as the ones I might have left out. See how it feels to live a more minimalist and clutter-free life.
An organized and clutter-free space + good habits = a healthy and happier you
Make Progress with the Right Executive Function Coach
As one of the 10+ million U.S. adults with ADD, I genuinely understand the challenges of living with ADHD as well as the positive results that can be achieved through coaching. With the help of a great executive functioning skills coach, adult ADHD treatment can change lives. With the right behaviors and coping mechanisms, it’s easier to overcome some of the worst symptoms. Those include distraction, lack of punctuality, untidiness, forgetfulness, failure to meet deadlines, and more.
By practicing these success strategies, performance at work can improve, too. Life at home will become more stable and relaxing. Enrich every important personal relationship. And most importantly, you’ll gain a new level of self-confidence.
