Have you ever felt like you were super busy all day running around to find out that you really didn’t accomplish much?  Like a hamster on wheels but not going anywhere? We’ve all been there.  Fortunately, following these simple steps will help you have a more productive day.

  1. Plan your day

As soon as you wake up, take your precious 10 mins to plan your busy day. If you are too busy and don’t have 10 minutes to plan, then this is when you really need a plan! Mapping out your day will give you a direction and keep you focus on your goals.

  1. Use your calendar wisely

Your calendar should not be a to do list. It should be for events and appointments only. If you have tasks on it, it will look cluttered and appointments might slip through the ...

The biggest mistake people make when organizing is that they try to store everything without getting rid of anything.

To be successful you should start with decluttering.

The less you have to put away, the less chances your home will be cluttered.

While working with our clients we discovered recurring mistakes. By sharing those with you, we hope that you can identify some of them and give your organizing plan another try.

Clutter is a collection of things in your home that take up space, and are not used or looked at for more than 6 months.  

This method will not only help you reclaim your space, but will also help you stay organized for a long time.  It is not a quick process and can be overwhelming at times.  However, once you are done, you will feel invigorated and want to simplify your life.

Clutter can be as small as a piece of paper or as big as household furniture.  Sometimes the clutter is so out of control, it takes over your life, causes stress and makes you feel overwhelmed.  At this point, you can hire a professional organizer to help you organize or you can do it yourself.  If you plan to do it yourself, then we recom...

You have heard about mindfulness before but what is all the fuss about? Is it a new trend or a cleanse?

Mindfulness means being aware...aware of your actions, thoughts and feelings...aware of what is going on. In today’s life when we all have to juggle with multiple things at once, we tend to use our “auto-pilot” part of our brain the most. Taking the time to think about what we are doing might look like a waste of time. It is not.  Taking a step back and practicing mindfulness produce so many benefits.

It will help you focus on what is important. How many of you spend the day busying around to find yourself at the end of the day exhausted without accomplishing anything important? Maybe if you had taken a few minutes in the morning, before th...

With our busy lives, we often do not have time to be mindful when it comes to getting a gift for our loved ones.  We often resort to materialist gifts that add clutter to our lives.  It’s easy to accumulate clutter during the holidays because material gifts are easy to find anywhere in the store. Oftentimes the more memorable ones are non-materialistic and easily overlooked.  Here are the list of gifts that are clutter-free and will provide a lasting memory for the receiver.

  • Take a friend or loved one out to dinner to unwind.

  • Make a special dish or dinner that he/she likes.
