If we procrastinate on decluttering because of perfectionism, we’ll never get there. We’ll just get even messier and more likely to avoid it.
You don’t have to tackle it all at once, by the way. Marie Kondo has you put ALL your clothes in a pile and I’m like, “Nooooo, my precious clutterbugs collectors, don’t dooo it!” You might get buried alive! (But hey, if her approach does work for you, great, by all means do it!)
Pacing ourselves is key. Learning how to declutter and organize in small bits throughout the week, and larger chunks weekly, is far more sustainable. You might want to label your sort/purge progress with post-its, painters tape, or signs-- so you can pick up where you left off next time - and not be totally confused, having to start all over.
By the way, if you’re stuck...or...

As an artist first and foremost, I actually avoided anything too administrative- like managing free gifts and email lists- for so many years...until now!
The free Workbook Journal you downloaded, Organizing and Loving Yourself, Space, Life - is filled with the very steps and concepts that have allowed me- and so many clients- more time, space, freedom and creativity to fully express and celebrate the best version of ourselves.

Decluttering is the art of letting go and making space for who you are today. It's getting to know your inventory.
Organizing is more about systemizing the keeps, in a way you can access and enjoy them easily.
Less stress. Feeling blessed. We are incredibly lucky to have shelter. Sometimes we treat it just as that, or like storage. When we can make it our sanctuary space, where we can rest, work, play and fully express ourselves in different ways, it's the ultimate Home Sweet Home. Or business!

Here are a few evidence-based tips to help you sleep better at night.
1. Make sure to get enough light exposure during the day. Open your windows and let the sun shine in or go for a walk to get some sun or even just the natural light from outside. Sunshine and natural light helps your body's circadian rhythm so your body creates melatonin when it is time to relax and sleep.
2. In the evening try to limit your exposure to blue light from devices or wear blue blocking glasses to help relax your body and to help with the production of melatonin. Another suggestion is to have blue blocking glasses that have a yellow tint...
