OK In Health - Organizing Help

Clear Your Space, Clear Your Mind! - January 2019

By Linda Andersson

Organization is something we all struggle with. It seems that no matter how hard we try, disorganization creeps back again and again. So, why do we even bother getting organized in the first place?

According to feng shui principles, clutter in any area of your life is a sign of stuck, stagnant energy. The more clutter you have, the more sluggish the energy becomes. If you have ever walked into a cluttered room, you have probably felt your energy drop dramatically. So much so that you may even avoid that room altogether and close the door so you don’t have to look at it! Coping with clutter is rarely easy and staying focused and motivated to get the job done can be one of the biggest challenges.

Here are a few tips to help get you started and stay motivated when it all seems like too much!

  • Set Achievable Goals. Pick one area to tackle at a time - this could be a shelf, a drawer, a countertop. Picking one task and completing it is much more rewarding than trying to tackle an entire room or office all at once. When you don’t finish something it makes it much harder to get started again the next time.
  • Start with messes and clutter you see every day. Assign every item (or group of items) a home. It dramatically cuts down on the clutter of items left out "for now" or "until I find a place for it."
  • Use the One-In-One-Out Rule. Make it a general policy to get rid of one old thing for every new purchase.
  • Work With Your Natural Tendencies. Observe what things pile up in your home or office and where they cluster then come up with a place nearby that becomes the official home where those things reside. It is easier to make the area look better with a basket or bin than to try and change a habit!
  • Pick Favorites. If you have a favorite brand or item that you use frequently but four partially used items of another brand that didn’t measure up are sitting in your cupboard – give them away!
  • Keep Only Things you Use or Love.
  • Maintain your organized lifestyle with 30 minutes of upkeep each day
Getting and staying organized is a lifestyle, not a crash diet. Start by making small changes and you will quickly see an improvement in your home or office space which directly affects how you feel about your life!

Wellness Tip
Diabetes
Are you age 45 or over? If so, consider having your fasting blood sugar checked at least once every 3 years. Diabetes affects over 20 million Americans. Many do not know they have this condition. Lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of diabetes. These changes include increasing physical activity and decreasing body weight. Eating a high fiber and low fat diet can also reduce your risk.

How to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods
Genetically modified(GM) foods - are they safe or harmful? While regulatory authorities have approved GM food that is on the market, some people are concerned that there is risk of harm. Most foods we eat may contain ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). If you live in Europe, avoiding GM foods is easier since laws require labeling. In the US and Canada, however, food manufacturers are not required to label if their food is genetically modified or not. Here are some guidelines for steering clear of GM foods in your diet, if that is your choice....

Recipe
Smoked Fish with Horseradish Sauce
Category: Fish
Description: If you have never dealt with a fresh horseradish root, be prepared for an experience. In the days before food processors, grating the root by hand was just like being exposed to tear gas. Freshly ground horseradish with vinegar and a little salt completely outclasses the prepared varieties sold in stores, and mixed with low-fat sour cream, it becomes a wonderful condiment for fish, boiled or baked potatoes, and other cooked vegetables.
