Find energy for declutter your home

5 steps to find energy for declutter your home 

I´m a believer of that everybody sometimes postpone cleaning at home or to get started with all the clutter at home. You know you need to do something about it, but instead of just doing it today you say: Let’s make it tomorrow or at monday…I know, because I have been there several times. For me it’s different now, because I have found the way out of it and I’m here to coach you to the same position as I am.

Life could be tricky and you can feel stressed out many times. There are so many things to do everyday. I remember when our kids were small and we had a big house to look after. It was tough many times, but also the best time in my life. But, even if you haven’t all that it could be boring to clean and take care of all the things everywhere in your home.

I´ve made a podcast episode about how you can find energy for declutter your home and begin to taking care of yourself. There are so many ways to find energy and in this episode I’ll give you 5 steps.

How to create the awesome wardrobe

A day of recovery

Hi there,

Today I took a day of recovery. I went to the nearest city Malmö. I just love to go for a trip and simply do what I would like to do. No plans, just go with the flow. I started with a visit at my friend Benny Rosenqvist and then went on down to the beach nearby. Sat and ate my lunch at the pier and listen to the waves, listen to my mind and saw a frogman 😂 He jumped in the ocean with his flippers and went on to the big bridge Öresundsbron. That was a very long way to swim 😱 Hope he did it with success.

How often do you take a day off and just do simple things or just nothing? It doesn’t have to be something special, just a day off from everything. For me it’s real healing for my soul. It’s not the same thing if I stay at home for rest. I have to take a trip somewhere. Maybe you’re like me? ❤️

I ended my trip at an Italian gelateria (#dolcesicilia) and enjoyed a delicious ice cream. I can really recommend a visit there if you would like to have the best quality of ice-cream 👍 Here is a link to best the ice-cream bar in Malmö.

Satisfied, calm and happy for my day off and a day of recovery in the warm september sun. I really needed that. Don’t underestimate contemplation, recovery and do listen to your intuition when you have to take a day off for rest.

Life could be hectic, I know. The thing is that if you just go on and never stop and make reflections it’s a big chance that you some day will be exhausted. You don’t want that, right! I have been there, so I know the feeling of it and how long time it takes to come back to normal again. 

I have found my way of simplifying my life and that includes everything. For example I have a morning routine to write down the most important thing for the day and also some other things that matters for me.

I’m soooo happy and today I also have 3000 downloads from the beginning when I first published my pod. I just can’t believe it and my heart fills with so much love and gratitude.

So, why has this happened to me? I will tell you…I have decluttered my home, my life and my entire soul and when you do something like that everything can happen. You don´t know before you start, but I will tell you something here: I HAD NEVER STARTED A PODCAST IF I DIDN´T DECLUTTERED MY LIFE. That’s the real truth, believe me. I didn’t thought that I could and my self confidence was at the bottom after several tough days. I raised again and I’ll never give up. I’m a fighter and have always been.

Start to declutter and unexpected things starts to happen for you!

Go to Spotify and listen to Design the simple life and todays topic is this:

What if you could be more present

What if…you could be more present in your everyday life…

I know how it feels to not be present. I think I haven’t been present for a long time, but today I’m more present than before and I’m also more satisfied and grafeful of what life has to give. I know why I haven’t been present all the time and I know why I haven’t been so balanced…

What if you could have more harmony and balance in your life…

I have heard from my clients sooo many times: I want to be balanced, have happiness and love in my life. You know what? There are solutions….

What if you could get more love into your life…

To bring more happiness and love into your life, I think the first thing you have to do is to start with yourself. If you don´t love yourself, you can not love others and there may be some issues to welcome people into your real life. You have probably heard this before: – to get love you have to love yourself first. Maybe a cliche´, but very true.

It’s not that easy to love yourself, so how to do that? Maybe you could make a plan for your life and then stick to that. I mean what you really want in your life. Show yourself that you’re the most important person in your life and treat yourself in the same way as you treat your best friend. You don’t say stupid and ugly things to your best friend, right? Don’t do that to yourself either. You are lovable just like you are. Remember that.

What if you could have a wonderful feeling when open your door to your own home and you like what you see. How would the feeling look like if you feel satisfied when you looking around in your home and love everything? That feeling is unbeatable.

It´s so important to treat yourself with love. My opinion is that the easiest way is to start with your home. If you’re not impressed of what you see in your own home I think you have to make a change. My decluttering method works very well, because if you get rid of things you don’t like you get more joy and love into your life. And that’s the most important thing in life, I think. Money or whatever else does not make you happy.

If you’re interested in bringing more joy and love into your life join my
