Spring feels like the perfect time to share a little about my biggest project for 2022 which is actually not writing related.
In 2022 I'm committed to organizing my whole house (even the paper!).
This isn't just some pet project to keep myself busy (or procrastinating), it's actually a sort of self-styled ADHD treatment plan.
I'm going back to my over-organized coping mechanism roots to help calm this all-over-the-place mind. My hope is that by organizing my space, I'll have more mental space to think about what I actually want to (writing) as opposed to having my thoughts constantly pulled in a million directions by clutter.
And because I am forever a student, I purchased an online course that takes me through the process of organizing a whole home in one year, step-by-step, day-by-day, spending 15-30 minutes a day. I know, right? That exists! And I'm so grateful it does because if there's one thing that works for me it's a syllabus! LOL.
(If you're curious about the (not cheap) program hit reply and let me know, and I'll send you a link to the free sample week. I'm not an affiliate or anything -- it's just working well for me, so I'm happy to share the info).
I recently shared pics from one of my first organizing projects: creating a system that keeps our mail from piling up on the kitchen counters.
