Our thoughts are not our identity. Our thoughts can be changed. But frequently negative thoughts hijack our life. Many people let these thoughts take over their identity, their daily experiences, their joy -- all without embracing the basic premise that we have the ability to change our thoughts.  Tune into today's show to learn how to take back the control and restructure your thoughts!

It is possible to reduce stress and increase productivity by decluttering! Research backs this up! The Journal of Current Psychology has published studies showing the negative impacts of clutter. It causes “life dissatisfaction” and can “negatively impact our mental wellbeing”. Clutter also increases cortisol, the stress hormone, and is linked to greater procrastination (anyone else feel like putting shit off cause there is just too much crap around? If not, me either, was just asking for a friend…). 

 

In this podcast, we discuss the concept of decluttering.  Dee really embraces the de-cluttered life. She says, “I’m by no means a minimalist, but I really try to not accumulate stuff.” She continues to explain that the research is so true in her life: “I agree with all those facts - and I feel it tenfold! I feel the negative impacts so strongly, that it’s practically debilitating to me. If I can’t find an outfit, and I make my closet a huge mess, I literally cannot go to sleep until it’s cleaned up. If there are a lot of things around - in my car, desk, whatever! - it feels cloudy and heavy in my thoughts and body.” 

 

But, how do we effectively declutter? I have three kids and a dog living at home. Our schedule is packed- as I am sure everyone’s is.  At times in the past, I wouldn’t handle it the best way... I would go on a “cleaning rampage” against my family trying to get them to clean up with my big black trash bags in tow.  But in recent years I have been using a strategy that works well for me. It was partially adapted by Marie Kondo’s method. Check out her books: The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up as well as Spark Joy: An Illustrated Masterclass on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up. But many of you have already heard of her from her new Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. 

 

Like Marie, I think it’s important to touch every item when debating whether to keep it. We need to feel its energy, and then discern if it is serving us meaningfully. I used to do this room by room, item by item. But Kondo preaches going category by category, and I have started to prefer that technique. Here are her categories: 

 

  1. Clothing
  2. Books/paper
  3. Kitchen/bathroom
  4. Garage/storage
  5. Sentimental/Misc.

 

You may need to adapt these categories to work for you. Kitchen and garage are part of the miscellaneous category, and that can encompass a lot. Or if maybe you keep a lot of holiday decorations, you could create your own category for that. Another blogger created a thorough PDF of what’s in Marie Kondo’s categories if you want more detail.

 

My process works like this: working in a certain category, I am armed with two large bags: one for trash, and one for donations. Then, with each item, I ask myself three questions. 

 

  • Do I use it now? 
  • Will I use it in the next year? 
  • Does it bring me joy?  

 

If I answer no to these questions, then it is time to part with the items - with no hesitation! Dee says that even though she reduces clutter as much as possible, her storage closets tend to hold these types of unused items, like extra backup shampoo for the backup shampoo (does anyone else do this?).  Using my process (or one like it) prevents the clutter, the build up and the unnecessary STUFF. 

 

How to say goodbye... especially to gifts and expensive items

 

When you decide to let something go, I do a similar process as Marie. I have to touch every item in order appreciate the items for the energy they brought and to impart appreciation for the joy it once brought me. This feeling of gratitude makes it a more harmonious process. 

 

I think this “gratitude farewell” especially works for items that were gifts. It really is okay to let a gift go if it isn’t used or doesn’t bring joy. Say “thank you” and express gratitude for the love that was expressed in giving the gift, but then LET. IT. GO. Trust that by donating it to someone else, it can find a new home where it can be loved. Even if it cannot be donated, know that you are making room in yourself and your home to more deeply appreciate what’s left, and give yourself that gift. 

 

Price, too, is something that holds us back from parting ways. We keep things because they were ‘expensive’, and we sometimes especially keep them if we have buyers remorse. But keeping these belongings, and the guilt that comes with them, really isn’t healthy or productive. If cost is holding you back from replacing something you actively dislike, consider finding a consignment shop or listing it on Craigslist.

 

When Nathan and I got married, we each had our own houses and needed to consolidate. Whether it was a sofa or a painting that I wanted to part with, he would always bring up the price: “Do you know how expensive that was?!” But my philosophy is that the flow of money is okay. What you spent at that time helped the economy, someone’s job, someone’s business, etc. And, most of the time, that item served you when you needed it. When circumstances change, as they always do in life, it’s good to reevaluate whether that painting, sofa, or anything else is still supporting your lifestyle and bringing you joy. 

 

For another example, I was holding onto fancy suits from my life in corporate. But it’s been 14 years! For a while, those memories of high-powered meetings brought me joy and I kept those suits, wondering if I may need them again. But when I looked at them more recently, I knew I didn’t need to hold onto them anymore. Rather than be guilty about “losing” the money I spent on them, I decided to be joyous about what those suits offered me during that phase, and deeply grateful for all the clothes I now wear in a different lifestyle I really love. 

 

Making decluttering a habit, especially with kids

 

Maybe now it’s a standard lesson for teaching kids, but it’s one that Dee remembers well from her childhood.  Whenever they brought new items into their home or wardrobe, they needed to part with an equal number of items. Today for Dee, that lesson has held, especially with clothes shopping. If she comes home with shopping bags, she finds an equal number of clothes to donate. 

 

In my house, we do that same “purge” following Christmas. I’ll admit, my kids are a bit spoiled! My girls got new toys for gifts, and then we took the time to put some old toys in a giveaway bag as well. In Episode 1 of Tidying Up, even toddlers were “folding” with their parents, and learning those important lessons. 

 

Ultimately, every family member should be respected about the items they wish to keep, if it truly sparks joy for them. Decisions about what to keep are personal; they are about listening to the voice within. But parents can set their kids up for success by prompting them to do this process and especially by teaching through example. 

 

A note on gender roles

 

Those studies from Current Psychology also indicated that clutter can “negatively impact our mental wellbeing,” particularly for women. Perhaps this is because in studies women still report doing more chores. I think we still see this trend where women may feel more of a burden, both logistically and emotionally, for maintaining a home. Even the Netflix series showed many women in married relationships who seemed to feel more of that pressure, which USA Today pointed out in their take on the show. 

 

One mom featured in episode 3 of Tidying Up teared up at not meeting her own and society’s expectations for creating a home for her family. Progress came the most when her husband and two pre-teen children not only took responsibility for their own spaces and belongings, but also contributed to the family overall. The husband said he had never cooked, but at the end of the process, he proudly mentioned making a salad, and his wife said with gratitude that he picked up the dry cleaning and folded the laundry. At the end of Episode 1, the married father with two toddlers said that by doing laundry and dishes alongside his wife, they were able to share moments from their day, enjoy the time together, and most importantly feel closer as a couple. 

 

Ultimately, for shared spaces like kitchens and living rooms, every family member should buy into the decluttering process, play their role in maintaining it, and contribute meaningfully in the space. 

 

The takeaway (plus resources) 

 

Whatever method you choose, having a clean and organized life has so many benefits. (You can also check out our earlier episode with Laura, our fung shui expert!)  I have a free PDF you can get HERE with my 3x5 method: three simple questions for five categories. 

 

The energy flows better in our life without all the crap and junk we no longer need or use.  A de-cluttered life really can bring you peace and positivity!

It’s 2019! Welcome to our first podcast episode of the new year! In today's show we discuss a topic that often comes to mind as a new year prompts reflection— purpose.

Recently, it’s become a bit of a buzzword. Popular books like Simon Sinek’s ‘Start With Why’, for instance, exhort business leaders to have a grand and identified sense of purpose – an intimidating prospect! Have you faced anxiety and self-doubt about “finding” your “purpose”? 

Join us as we rethink what purpose really means and then consider some valuable questions that can help bring you into alignment with a more harmonious sense of purpose.

**There are some sound issues due to travel/internet issues- please forgive us**.  Shannon & Dee sit down and just chat about something many have a hard time talking about: money.  We walk through our past stories around money and the limiting beliefs held around money and abundance.  Also discussed is the sad but prominent social system of rooting for the underdog but then attacking when they become the top dog and how that- along with ANY anti-money (anti rich, anti big company) mentality will actually block your own abundance.   We walk through moving from a scarcity mindset into an abundant and receiving mindset.  Listen in to find out what Shannon and Dee get in the mail now that they have shifted their mindset from a place of lack to a place of fulfillment.   Remember this: your expectation is creating your experience!

During our interview with Kim Dee shares her mental anguish of becoming an entrepreneur too and we all talk about how important honoring a schedule is and what are some key take aways of building out and then honoring what is put on a calendar. 

 

I love that what we found during our conversation is that what is even more rewarding than the business itself, is that the struggle of balance, building and then kinda falling apart created self confidence and courage!  THAT is the best result of all!

 

Kim shares her passion with us, the business she built; Project Mindful Movement.  An online platform where parents and educators can come find mindful tools, activities and videos that aid students to expand a growth mindset, learn self control tools, find calmness amongst chaos and so much more- find out more at www.projectmindfulmovement.com - sign up for their newsletter and get one free lesson plan!  Also use code HAPPYHOURPODCAST to save 20% off!  My girls (Shannon’s) LOVE Project Mindful Movement- they bug all the time to do the videos and activities!  You gotta check out this program, especially if you have kiddos from preschool to 5th grade age range (or you teach them).   There is even a great kit option to gift or a way to donate to your child’s classroom!  WIN!

 

Tune in and also find out why Dee was masturbating during the show- she wanted it edited out- sorry Dee!

Feb 6, 2018

We are so excited to have Shannon's husband Nathan on the show today to talk about something that affects almost everyone!  

Vicitmidous as Nathan calls it, or a victim mindset, is one of the most underrated psychological terms and personality traits in which a person tends to recognize themselves as a victim of the actions of others, and to behave as if this were the case in the face of contrary evidence of such circumstances.

Becoming a victim is a culmination of three factors; experience, personality and coping mechanisms (or as Nathan describes it- what you choose). 

During this podcast we highlight the signs for someone who might be a victim. These signs include the effected person acting defensive in all conversations, consistently blaming other people for their actions which led to his/her bad experience, being pessimistic at most times and looking for a reason to be targeted. Another very common sign amongst the victims are that they live in the past, particularly sticking to the bad memories and use these past experiences to determine their future endeavors in a negative way. 

Victims seek attention and gain sympathy by constantly nagging and blaming their situations rather than owning their decisions, experiences and choices.

Changing the mindset of a person from victim to victor includes firstly, for that person to start loving him or herself. “No one will love you unless you start loving yourself”- and victims tend to not feel loved, harder to receive love and thus harder to project it out. Secondly, another useful method is to explore the person’s own broken belief, in simple terms, this means to explore what it is you believe is wrong and then find out where that comes from and how it can be reprogrammed. Another tool is to practice being present; stop living in the past constantly exploring all the wrongs experienced and instead focus on the gift of this moment. Finding your grateful heart is a game changer of going from the powerless place of victim to the powerful space of victor.  There is always something to be grateful for. Lastly, give.  Give of your time and energy to something that feels right and good for you to experience a huge shift in your life.  

In this episode, outside relationships are also explored.   How to identify if you are in a relationship with a victim and what are some ways to approach it.

 

Victimization is a silent dysfunction which may not reveal itself until looked upon carefully.   It is a disease, as Nathan puts it, that can metaphorically kill one; kill their spirit, connections and joy.
