I had no idea when I wrote the post Thirteen Days in Decluttering Mode last year, that it’s more difficult to clear the clutter when you’re not balancing it with lots of self-care.
I got better at the self-care towards the second half of last year; however, I was still crazy busy all the time. This year has been very different in terms of making sure that I have ample time for myself every day.
Stephanie Bennett Vogt has taught me a lot in her book A Year to Clear which I’m working through this year in an attempt to eliminate more of the clutter. On day 13 of the book she says…
Compassion is the feel good principle of clearing. When we feel safe, supported, and good we are more likely to let go.A Year to Clear, Stephanie Bennett Vogt
Whether you are struggling to clear the clutter, or just busy all of the time, have a think about how you can add more self-care into your day.
Until next time…
High five me girl! 😀 It’s #teamtomm kitchen day today (I HATE Thursdays lol) but I will still make sure I do something nice for me. I’m plannning a nap and a ready meal, so no cooking 😉 x
A nap sounds lovely 😊. I just looked at my kitchen and remembered that it’s #teamtomm kitchen day and won’t even get to start it until I’ve finished work late afternoon. It’s going to take longer than 30 mins I think 😀! My hallway is looking good from yesterday though but then that’s an easy one. Good luck today xx
We do need to take care of ourselves if we are going to be any help to others. It is not selfish though I am sure a lot of people look at it that way.
You are absolutely right. I bought a book many years ago called The Art of Selfishness. I must dig that one out and read it again 😊
Love this! Thank you for giving the insight, definitely made me think 😊
I know, it’s really made a difference to me. Thank you for stopping by and commenting 😊
