It’s week 14 of my Declutter 52 Things in 52 Weeks Challenge. If you haven’t signed up yet, join me today as I help you remove all those things in your home you no longer need or use.
It’s easy to focus on the physical clutter that is all around us, but what about the things we can’t see? What about our busy minds? As a mum, I know how full my mind can get, and how easy it can be to forget things. Clearing our minds allows us the space to be truly present in each moment, and to deal better with the tasks immediately at hand.
The Declutter 52 things in 52 Week Challenge is completely FREE!! I publish a new task on the blog each Wednesday. Sign up to my daily emails so you don’t miss when the next tasks is live. Alternatively, visit the blog each Wednesday to see the latest task.
Please share a photo of your space each week on Instagram using hashtag #declutter52 and tag @theorganisedhousewife
Decluttering Task #14
YOUR MIND – LET GO – WRITE ALL YOUR UPCOMING EVENTS INTO YOUR CALENDAR
Before I had kids I had a fantastic memory. I used to work in the accounts department for a tourism company in my early 20s and I could easily remember numbers and know the names of over 100 employees, but these days it’s just not the same. After I had kids I called it baby brain, but now my youngest is 14 that’s no excuse, my memory is just not the same. I need to write down events as soon as I learn about them, otherwise there is a big likelihood I will forget about them.
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY
- Drink less alcohol
- Do brain games (like crosswords or Tetris)
- Get a good night’s sleep
- Eat less sugar
- Spend time in nature
- Exercise more
- De-stress with essential oils
- Write a ‘To Do’ list
- Plan your day, week and month
- Take up a hobby
Use your calendar or diary that you purchased at the beginning of the year, and use it to make your days easier. Add to it:
- all upcoming events
- due dates
- school events
- social gatherings
- don’t forget Easter is approaching, include any gatherings you may have around this time.
