Removing clutter from your environment will help you to remain focused and organized. This will help you remove the 'panic-factor' from your daily life. It may not seem to be relate to success in your fitness goals, but chaos and a cluttered mind, causes dis-array in the other areas of your life, including you weight goals.

We talk about how exercise and clean eating help to give you more energy, better health, and a trimmer waistline, but being organized at home and at work can affect you being able to accomplish your daily workout, and being organized enough to pack a healthy, well-balanced lunch to take versus buying a hot dog from a cart vendor.

Conquering clutter can help get you organized and clear your mind. Here are some ideas to help:

  • Take 15 minutes to organize the stuff in your home, your purse/briefcase, or your desk. Use a basket to gather things as you walk around your home. Use a basket system for your desk.
  • Use a communication station for you and your family. Leave messages for yourself/your family about reminders, or chores to do or the weekend 'to-do list'. I set one up for my 5 kids to remind them of their 'before school' chores so I don't have to yell or repeatedly ask them if they are ready for school.
  • Use Sundays to organize your weekly food plan. Write down meal ideas. Pre-steam vegetables to be added to eggs in the morning, salads, and finished off quickly for an easy dinner.
  • Organize snacks to throw into your bag to keep your blood-sugar levels even by eating a healthy, low-salt snack mid-morning, and mid-afternoon.
