Guide to Setting Intentions
How many times have you tried an organizing tip or felt the urge to purge, went full force and found yourself burnt out when you were only half way through?
Have you ever dreamed of your ideal future but felt overwhelmed by the steps it would to get there?
It’s best to start small and be aware of your motivations so you can follow through completely. Here are some suggestions on how to make your intentions happen:
Willingness to Change:
Every intention requires an action. When you’re moving towards a more organized home and life, this means you need to change something in your current life. For example, making the commitment to not having any dirty dishes at the end of the night. This change may seem small in comparison to your overall intention, however these small habit changes are what create a lasting change.
Too hard, too fast:
We live in a fast pace culture where high expectations surround us. Think about what you really want and keep the steps simple. By tackling one small intention at a time you are able to be more present and feel the rewards of accomplishing something and are more likely to continue your quest towards larger goals.
What do you really want?
It’s time to sit down and think about what you really what vs what you think you “should” be doing. Getting organized is a personal process. Being organized doesn’t necessarily mean white walls and minimal furniture and belongings — it’s about changing your space to suit your needs and personality.
