Categories: Nutrition, Organizing
Do you ever wonder why you feel so down, depressed, overweight, and unmotivated in your life?
Try this on for size, (if you can fit into it!)…One huuuge culprit I see on a daily basis is people who are disorganized in their homes are usually disorganized in health, fitness, and nutrition as well. There is a saying in the nutrition world…”It’s not what you’re eating; it’s what’s eating you.”
Really, you say? Yes, really! The two go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. Naturally, if your kitchen is neat and organized, you’re much more inclined to reach for healthy food items vs. the quick-fix, canned, processed and refined foods.
This concept is not a well-known one, but it’s so widespread, sadly, and is an extremely important component to healthy living, on the inside and the out. Without it, we simply go through the motions of daily living without any joy, freedom, and ease.
My background as a professional residential organizer since 2002 and a holistic nutrition consultant since 2010 has brought me confirmation and also firmly to the realization that this sly little triangle does so much damage to the soul, wreaking havoc on all important areas. It doesn’t matter whether I show up to someone’s home as an organizer or a nutrition consultant…one almost always overlaps the other. I know the minute I go into one’s home what their schtick is.. Disorganized home, disorganized gut, disorganized mind.
The impact of these three areas of life being out of sync creates huge heartache for my clients. There are three areas that I see that are most affected, and in a particular order, I feel, they are health, entertainment, and relationship.
Ask yourself: Why are you putting up with this? To quote Groucho Marx, “If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong.”
These are major areas of our lives, wouldn’t you say? Without these, we are living subpar; we are surviving, not thriving. We are just downright unhappy!
Is your home your sanctuary, a place you enjoy coming home to? If not, why not? What are you not dealing with that needs addressing?
How many more mornings can you wake up wishing you didn’t, and how many more days can you tolerate that your clutter is ruling you vs. you ruling your clutter?
An even bigger question is…what is the impact of this triangle?
Perhaps you would like to fit into those skinny jeans, or you’d like to share life with someone special, or you would like to invite someone over for dinner, one cooked with healthy ingredients, one in which you intentionally created with love?
Perhaps you would like to enjoy having friends over and sit around talking, laughing, and reminiscing?
When someone calls you up and says, “Hey, I’m in the area and want to drop by,” do you freak out? Or do you have to move things around and hide things for a week to have a social gathering?
These are all very important questions that should say to you, “What the heck am I doing?”
Now that you know there is a connection between your home and your health, take a look to see what is feeding your messy closet, what is stopping you from decluttering your home or decluttering your life, for that matter.
Has something traumatic happened? Has there been a loss in your life? Did you go through a nasty breakup? Any financial issues?
If any of this sounds familiar, cluttering your home, life, mind, and gut may be YOUR vice vs. dipping too frequently into the bottle, taking drugs to self-medicate, throwing up, cutting yourself, and on and on.
Isn’t it time to starting living, as we only have one shot at it? Don’t waste it.
