In a world where our lives are constantly bustling with responsibilities and tasks, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the mental load that comes with managing our homes, work, and personal lives. On a recent episode of the Bold Goal Crusher podcast, host Sara Mayer delved into the topic of decluttering with guest Bridget Flynn, owner of Divine Organizing, a boutique home-organizing firm based in Bridgeport, Connecticut. 

Unpacking the Importance of Decluttering 

Bridget Flynn, an intuition coach and expert organizer, shared insights on how clutter can impact our mental well-being and hinder our connection to intuition. She emphasized the significance of decluttering not just our physical spaces but also our mental spaces to create a more harmonious environment. 

Creating Systems Tailored to Your Needs 

One key aspect highlighted by Bridget was the importance of creating systems tailored to individual needs when organizing spaces. By understanding how each person thinks and functions, she can streamline the organization process and make it more intuitive for her clients. 

Overcoming the Embarrassment of Clutter 

One common concern raised by many individuals is the embarrassment or discomfort associated with having someone come into their cluttered spaces. Bridget reassured listeners that professional organizers work in a judgment-free zone and are there to help, support, and understand their clients without passing judgment. 

Trusting Your Intuition in Decluttering 

Bridget introduced a unique approach to decluttering by encouraging listeners to trust their intuition when deciding what to keep or discard. Through her "five-minute intuitive decluttering challenge," she helps individuals build a connection with their intuition and make decluttering decisions more confidently. 

Reducing the Mental Load Through Equitable Distribution 

Addressing the issue of the unequal distribution of mental load within households, Bridget stressed the importance of sharing responsibilities and having open conversations with partners or family members. By lightening the load of household tasks, individuals can free up time to connect with their loved ones and focus on their well-being. 

Taking a Fun Approach to Organizing 

Bridget shared insights on how turning organizing tasks into games or fun activities can make the process more enjoyable and engaging for everyone involved. By adding an element of joy and creativity to decluttering, individuals can approach the task with a lighter mindset and achieve better results. 

Embracing the Journey to Clutter-Free Living 

As the podcast episode concluded, Sara Mayer and Bridget Flynn emphasized the importance of embracing the journey to clutter-free living and setting up personalized systems to maintain organization in the long run. By making decluttering a manageable and enjoyable process, individuals can transform their living spaces and reduce their mental load.
