Feeling tired? What are some things that are zapping your energy?

Visual Clutter

Clutter makes our senses work overtime on stimuli that aren’t necessary or important. Clutter makes it difficult to relax, both physically and mentally. I have definitely found this true in my life. I feel more stressed when I walk through the back door and see stuff scattered over the kitchen counter tops and table, and I feel more relaxed when the surfaces are clean and clear. The piles of paper you’re saving or mail you need to go through is stealing energy from you. Try to create a field of vision in you or your child’s workspace in which there are no piles or clusters of sticky notes. You don’t have to organize them or trash them, just get them out of your line of sight to create the impression of a super-organized workspace.
