We’re taking a big look at all things energy, and how we can have more of it by organizing our lives.
Welcome to your guide to organizing your life (plus a yogi’s guide checklist!) that I learned while in yoga teacher training and I couldn’t be happier to share my take on it.
It’s amazing how distanced we can be from actually manifesting things we want in our lives, whatever it may be, due to a long list of stressors and distractions. Sometimes with these rooting from our body and soul.
The best part though? Most of the time, these can be easy fixes. Not to be confused as a quick fix, but there are some easy ways to declutter.
One of my favorite pieces of simple advice (again, thanks yoga teacher training!) is where attention goes, energy flows. This sounds so… enlightened and unattainable (at first).
However, before you write off that woo-woo thought, think about it for a moment. Anyone else seen the phrase “your vibe attracts your tribe” while scrolling through Instagram? Same thing, less new-age hipster-y. So if your energy is constantly being drawn to distractions, rather than what you wish to create, you’re going to struggle with the focus your dreams require to becoming a reality. I am a firm believer that you attract the energy that you give out.
Ready to dive into the yogi’s decluttering guide and get organized? Fill out the form below and I’ll send the checklist right to you!
Take this simple scenario: say your goal is to dedicate 30-minutes each week to self-care so you can de-stress a bit. So you decide to take a relaxing bath at the end of one day a week. You set the scene by lighting candles, infusing the water with essential oils and turning on relaxing music. You get in and are so ready to relax after a long day. You imagine your thoughts melting away to declutter your mind. The first couple minutes are great, but then the thoughts start creeping back in…
“I need to do the laundry. Have I paid my credit card bill this month? Ugh, if only I was able to commit to working out five days a week like [enter person’s name here]. Oh crap, I needed to reorder my contact lenses.”
You get the picture. Because of these seemingly little distractions and stressors, you’re bringing your energy down and you’re now unable to focus on the good and on moving forward.
This is where we start digging in…
We’re breaking down this decluttering guide into three main categories – body, mind and space, because energy is certainly not just working out or drinking coffee! Bummer, I know.
This life organizer guide breaks down these different areas causing stress in your life, so you can take a hard look at where you can clean up your act.
This part is not just how your body looks. It’s your happiness with your body, and how you care for it. How you ultimately feel within your body will show in how you go about your day.
We’re looking at the good ol’ monkey mind here, because don’t we all want a little more clarity and peace?
Your space may be the ‘easiest’ to look at it, because it’s mostly physical and doesn’t require us to come face-to-face with our internal BS. Imagine the little bit of peace you get once you clean out that junk drawer – we just do a lot of that and reel in those good vibes.
How to Use This Guide:
- I’ve provided an energy checklist for the three topics above. Print this guide out and review each of these items and if it’s always true for you, check the box. If it’s only sometimes true, do not check the box. If something doesn’t even apply to you, check the box anyway, since it doesn’t drain your energy.
- After you’ve gone through the whole list, review the un-checked boxes. Where are areas you can ‘clean up’?
- The most important part! Make a simple plan. Take the smallest action you possibly can to complete one item a week.
- Revisit this system every six months to keep your energy high and mighty!
BUT (and this is a big but), remember that this is a tool and is absolutely NOT something to use to get down on yourself.
This is simply a process to create more energy in your life. Don’t try to do it all at once and be gentle with yourself.
Psst – you can Pin now, and come back to the checklist over and over again below!
