Today, I am sharing with you a tip for resolution number 6: Clear Your Mind!
Many of my clients, at the start of a consultation, complain they do not have time to do all the things they need to do and the things they want to do.
However, if they take a close look at how they use their time, they have to admit that they waste an average of 2 hours per day – scrolling through social media, watching reruns of TV shows, or reading through online articles on topics that have no true interest to them.
What they lack is not time, but focus. Their minds are disorganized — disconnected from the true purpose of their lives, and this is why they cannot take the actions they would need to take to get closer to their goals.
There is one particular type of mess in the home or in the office that is believed, in Feng Shui, to contribute to confusion. When this type of mess is present, people cannot think clearly, and they get drained as soon as they sit down to work on their computer.
So what is the type of mess, that if you organize it, can help you clear your mind?
If the cables in your home are out of control it is very hard to focus and concentrate. A state of confusion with the cables in your home or office, symbolically contributes to the confusion in your mind.
Unorganized cables can:
- Create tripping hazards.
- Increase the risk of short cuts.
- Make workflow inefficient.
So if you find that you have a hard time focusing and being productive, and your cables are a mess, organize them and see how that helps you. Many people are afraid that if they start organizing cables, they will not know which cable goes where. It is a good idea to label cables before you unplug and start moving them, so you will know exactly where they go.
