#14: Body Wisdom Series (5) ~ Outer Calm = Inner Calm: Practical advice for decluttering your life

15.png

Audio


Recent scientific research shows that having too many things in your home may not only make it difficult to find your keys, but significantly impact how you feel.

And spoiler alert: getting organized does not just mean cleaning, sorting, and putting your things away. It is also about deciding what you need and love.

I’ve heard it termed ‘stuffocation’ when we feel suffocated by the amount of stuff around us and I think that’s a great term to describe how overwhelming and immobilizing it can be when we’re faced with a huge decluttering job.

If the thought of decluttering makes you want to take a nap this episode will help.

Today I’m joined by clutter expert Jen Rao and we’re going through these 9 listener questions:

  1. Our favourite decluttering books

  2. Strategies to systematically declutter and organize

  3. How to deal with sentimental items

  4. The worry of ‘what if I need it later?”

  5. What to do about weight fluctuations and having all different sizes in your closet

  6. How to decide what you should keep and what to get rid of

  7. What to do if your spouse/family members have a lot of stuff

  8. How you can work with your aging parents to clear their home

  9. And how to handle gift giving

Episode 9: What to do when you've tried millions of diets and don't know what healthy is for you anymore (Body Wisdom Series 1)

Audio


This episode is #1 in the Body Wisdom Series.

If you’ve been in my crowd for any length of time you already know how much I love being able to chat with all of you and ask you about what’s going on with your health. And that’s what inspired this Body Wisdom Series.

I named it Body Wisdom because I really believe that is the ONLY path to truly looking and feeling your best, and that’s listening and being able to interpret what YOUR body is trying to tell you. When you have body wisdom you’ll have vibrant health no matter what’s going on because you’re always listening to the expert - your body!

Today’s question has 3 really important parts:

  1. breaking down big health goals

  2. how to even know what’s healthy for you after trying so many different things

  3. after trying ‘millions’ of diets, how do you know what to follow

Plus I have a special guest joining me - Natasha is a fitness and nutrition expert and has 15 years of working with women.

In this episode we’ll cover:

  • why diets don’t work (what Natasha calls the ‘cycle of failure’)

  • what to do about late night snacking (especially sweet treats)

  • red and green light foods

  • wet vs. dry carbs

  • the power of whole foods (and some love for fiber)

  • and so much more….

No matter where you are on your health journey there is something here for you. Enjoy!
