Claiming Calm — You Can Give that to Yourself Today

Stay calm
Claiming calm is in your reach.

Claiming calm sounds delicious and powerful, doesn’t it? And yet, making time for a calm moment can be a little like finding clear space in a cluttered office.

Does it feel impossible to you?

Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s not impossible at all. And it’s a great gift that you can give to yourself whenever you choose to.

Truly.

Claiming calm amidst clutter…

There’s no denying the fact that clutter can feel overwhelming.

A cluttered space, or a cluttered schedule or to-do list, leaves you feeling anxious, dis-empowered, and sometimes guilty, too. You worry about the priorities getting lost in the piles.

  • Who are you disappointing?
  • What are you forgetting?
  • Where can you even BEGIN?

Does that sound familiar?  It can be a very challenging vicious cycle.

However, it is also one that you can step into a break at any point. You hold the power, and here are some ideas to help you put that power into action.

3 Tips to Get You Started

When you decide that you’re ready to start claiming calm and clearing some breathing space for yourself, here are three things to keep in mind:

  • Start small. Don’t expect that you will be able to give yourself 2 free hours or a de-cluttered office right away.  Go for 5-minutes of meditation or for organizing 3 file folders to start. Small steps will get you there.
  • Celebrate every success. Validate yourself when you follow through.  Pat yourself on the back for each accomplishment.  This builds momentum, makes it fun, and reinforces a friendly relationship with yourself. This is so important, and it affects other areas of your life as well, as you become your own best friend.
  • Build on what works. As you explore claiming calm and de-cluttering (whether it be your space or your time) you’ll develop systems, ways of communicating, and ‘tricks of the trade’ that work well for you.  Be aware of these and use them often, adapting as circumstances change.

And, as you may have surmised, any effort to de-clutter or create space involves creating boundaries. You decide what goes and what stays — what you say “Yes” to and where and when you say “No.”

As you get better and better at setting, communicating, and following through on your boundaries, you’ll find yourself with more space, more calm and less clutter.
