A few years ago, when my kids were about 3 and 5 I was drowning under the weight of taking care of our family, our house, and all the things in it! Clothes, toys, holiday decorations, food, personal care items and so-so much more.
I would spend hours picking stuff up, finding a home for it, sorting, organizing, and cleaning, only to have it all undone in lightning speed. It felt like I was chasing my tail and not getting anywhere. I was tired, frustrated, completely uninspired by my day to day chores, and often in a bad mood or resentful of everyone and everything!
As someone who has practiced Feng Shui for years and is well aware of the effect our environment can have on our well-being, I knew things had to change. I loved my family and our home but it was all at risk if I didn't do something. It was clear that I had too much stuff to take care of and some of it had to go.
I was already feeling maxed out of both time and energy. so I didn't know how I could possibly tackle going through all our stuff and letting it go. I started by committing a small portion of each day, every day, to looking at what we had and releasing some of it. And within a few weeks I felt better! I could see and feel the difference that releasing stuff was making. Our whole family dynamic was shifting for the better.
As I paid more attention to the challenges that all my clutter presented for me, I realized I that many friends of mine, and some of my feng shui clients, were also struggling with this. And so the #ClutterClearingChallenge was born.
Over the last two years, more than 100 people have joined in on a Clutter Clearing Challenge and lightened their load substantially. Following daily prompts, the group committed to small, consistent clutter clearing actions, with support and accountability helping everyone stay focused. It was so successful that many have repeated the Challenge more than once, de-cluttering more deeply each time around.
The next Clutter Clearing Challenge - a 10 day online group program - begins October 9th. You can participate from anywhere as long as you have access to internet and facebook. Join today for as little as $45. Details and registration information can be found HERE.
If you know someone who would benefit from joining the challenge, please share the information about the program with them. If you're unsure about whether this program is right for you, or have questions about it, send me a message and we can set up a time to connect.
