ORGANIZACIÒN : 10 formas fàciles de Simplificarte la Vida

10 formas fáciles de simplificarte la vida

Aunque ya sabes que yo soy más de apostar por la productividad a largo plazo que por los consejos cortos, es cierto que probar algo rápido y mejorar un poquito tu productividad puede despertar la confianza y el interés en emprender cambios más profundos.
Por eso me he lanzado finalmente a compartir una mini-lista de consejos rápidos centrados sobre todo en que no consumen tiempo ni esfuerzo extra prácticamente para ponerlos en práctica y mejorar tu productividad.
 

1. Pon el móvil en modo “no molestar” según la hora del día

Modo no molestar
Cuando te compras un móvil viene configurado para funcionar 24 horas al día pero no se merece semejante trato preferencial. Afortunadamente la mayoría de móviles actuales se pueden configurar para que pasen automáticamente a modo “no molestar” según la hora del día. Escoge tus horas de tranquilidad o de trabajo ininterrumpido y configúralo.
 

2. Centra tu atención en cada momento en una actividad

centrate en una
Creemos que tratando mil cosas en paralelo vamos mejor pero no es cierto. Lo simple se acaba antes. Desde el momento mismo que empiezas algo estarás tentado constantemente por hacer otras cosas. No cedas. Apunta lo que surja, mantente centrado y verás como con una sola cosa en la cabeza a la vez vas más rápido.
 

3. Deshazte de las cosas inútiles para ti

deshazte sobrante
El espacio también importa, y cada cosa que posees ocupa espacio tanto en tu cabeza (acordémonos de Zeigarnik) como en tu casa. Libera lastre, libera superficies y acostúmbrate a tener más huecos libres y menos sobrecarga (especialmente en tu mesa de trabajo). Los objetos son cargas, los espacios son oportunidades.
 

4. Aprende a decir que no

Este se lo dejo a Mario Lopez Guerrero que explica el cómo en este vídeo de maravilla:
 

5. Deja de considerar todo lo que te rodea como obligatorio

no obligacion
Te recuerdo que a diario llegan más cosas de las que puedes gestionar. Leer los mensajes del facebook cuando llegan, no es obligatorio. Responder a cada email, no es obligatorio. Atender a cada persona que te interrumpe no es obligatorio. Por eso aprende a diferenciar las tareas que deberías hacer de entre todas las que te llegan. Tu eficiencia lo agradecerá.
 

6. Invierte en cosas que te simplifican la vida

robot automatizacion
¿Cuánto tiempo gastas barriendo el suelo? ¿Y enviando casi los mismos emails? Hay ciertas tareas que requieren una atención especial porque las hacemos con mucha frecuencia. En vez de intentarlas hacer lo más rápido posible cada vez que te tocan, no estaría mal que te sentases un día tranquilo a pensar ¿cómo puedo eliminar o reducir al mínimo esta tarea? Y luego no tengas miedo de crear, comprar o equiparte de esa solución (no pienses solo en robotitos, para los emails por ejemplo podría ayudarte un sistema plantillas).
 

7. Reduce tus compromisos y reduce su rigidez

sin compromisos
La clave para no vivir pendiente del reloj es no tener obligaciones. Es cierto que la mayoría de compromisos no pueden evitarse, pero nosotros también somos generadores de compromisos ¡y somos más exigentes que nadie! La flexibilidad es calidad de vida y las prisas se pagan. Reduce lo que prometes, las horas límite y las condiciones innecesarias.
 

8. Desapúntate de abonos viejos (revisión anual)

reduce abonos
Que si la tele por cable, la suscripción a tal revista que nunca lees, que si la newsletter esta, etc. Nos vamos inscribiendo constantemente a cosas nuevas pero nuestra atención tiene un límite. Por eso, es bueno de vez en cuando romper con abonos que ya no usamos para hacer sitio a ideas nuevas. Yo que tú me programaba una revisión anual.
 

9. Concéntrate en el hoy

concentrate en ahora
Aunque te recomiendo encarecidamente que te marques objetivos y que sean grandes y motivantes es importante entender que el día a día no puede sacrificarse a costa de ellos. No te vale un plan de vida de trabajar 60 años para disfrutar los últimos 10. Por eso cultiva y aprovecha el día a día. Si tienes una rutina interesante lograrás que los grandes objetivos lleguen a cumplirse antes de lo que pensabas.
 

10. Date descansos frecuentes para pensar

parate a pensar
Descansar y dejar la mente en blanco no solo es bueno, sino que además es un desencadenante magnífico de la claridad de ideas. A veces todo lo que necesitas es sentarte en un sofá 5 minutos y tu cabeza encuentra la calma que necesitaba para pensar con claridad. ¡Practícalo! 5 minutos aquí, 5 allí. El relax no viene tanto de tirarse en un sofá, sino de la calma que sigue al poner en orden tus ideas.

CLUTTER CAN CAUSE US TO EAT MORE COOKIES?

  Quick Thought of the Day from Maria

Clutter Can Cause Us to Eat More Cookies?


With all the wonderful foods surrounding us and constantly calling our names, it's certainly not difficult to overeat now and then. Occasionally eating a bit more than we should is not going to cause any major issues...but if we're constantly consuming too much, the calories are going to keep piling on, which may end up with some serious health issues as time progresses.

In light of this, guess what I just read in the journal Environment and Behavior? One of the factors that can cause us to overeat...is clutter!

In the study, two kitchens were set up...one was organized, neat, and tidy. The other was a mess...strewn with mail, newspapers, and dirty dishes. Hundreds of women were recruited to participate in the study. They were brought into the kitchens one at a time, and given a writing assignment, detailing times when they felt out of control and when they felt in control.

During this time, participants were given snacks, the same in both kitchens, including cookies, crackers, and carrots. All were told: 'Feel free to eat as much as you want, because we have tons of this food.'

On average, the women in the messy kitchen consumed twice as many calories from cookies...as women in the tidy kitchen.

'The notion that places, such as cluttered offices or disorganized homes, can be modified to help us control our food intake is becoming an important solution in helping us become more slim by design,' report Brian Wansink of Cornell University and his colleagues.

Now, I'm not saying that I feel this is the most scientific experiment I've ever come across, but the results are certainly interesting. I do know that clutter causes stress, uneasiness, frustration, and other negative emotions. I also know that negative emotions cause most people to seek out comfort...and we all know that comfort often comes in the form of food...and generally the 'empty calorie' ones at that.

So my advice here is, if you want to eat less cookies, you can certainly start that quest by getting organized!

P.S. Need a little bit of help on that quest? Do you feel like, no matter what you do, you can't seem to get organized? If you've been struggling to get yourself and your home organized once and for all, I have the PERFECT solution for you!

Dusting Tips and Tricks. / Embracinghomemaking.net

Top 12 Dusting Tips and Tricks


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Endust for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Dusting Tips It’s that time of year again.  Oh, you know the one.  Eyes are watering, flowers are blooming, and the kids are running around the yard.  Spring has sprung!  For many of us spring is also the beginning of our annual ritual of spring cleaning.
I want to share my top ten tips and tricks for one cleaning chore that will never end….laundry you guess?  Well, not today.  Today we’re going to tackle the topic of dusting.  Bunnies in your lawn are cute, dust bunnies hiding behind your couch are not so charming.
*Heads Up: We have a spring cleaning giveaway at the end of this post!*
Dusting

  1.  Let’s talk tools.  You want something that will grab the dust as opposed to just pushing it around…and you don’t want one that will leave lint or feathers behind.  I’ve heard rave reviews about feather dusters made with ostrich feathers.  I bought one and while I feel like a fancy maid while using it, I don’t feel like it really grabs the dust.  That may be because I wait a week (or more!) in between dusting but who has time for more than that anyway?  If you dust frequently and don’t have grime left behind from kids that you also want to get off while you dust then an ostrich feather duster may be great for you.  For me and my chaotic life I prefer a microfiber cloth.  It’s great!
  2.  Another tool I like to reach for is Endust dusting spray.  It’s not a polish that will leave a yucky residue on your furniture but a dusting spray which is just what I need.  Endust is a silicone-free formula that’s designed to leave a natural shine without any build-up.  It helps grab the dust and erases the fingerprint smudges.  Plus, my daughter loves the lemon scent it leaves behind.  Where to buy?  You can pick up a can of Endust Lemon at Amazon.com, Walmart, or almost any grocery store.  Here’s a coupon for it!
  3.  Dust from top to bottom, THEN vacuum.  I read this tip in a magazine when I was a child and I remember it still.  I have a tendency to want to vacuum first but that will only stir up the dirt that will later end up on my furniture again.  Dusting from top to bottom keeps me from dusting something twice.  If I dust the bottom of the bookshelf first and work my way up, the bottom shelf will have a thin layer of freshly fallen dust on it.  Remember to go top to bottom.
  4. Dusting delicate items When I was a kid one of my chores was to dust the items on our family’s coffee table.  I can still envision the two deer and the doe that had the crossed legs.  I loved how shiny they were once they were clean!  To clean delicate items lightly spray your microfiber cloth with dusting spray.  Use a moist Q-tip or clean painting brush for those hard to reach places that dust can collect.
  5.  Walls, chair rail, door frames, crown molding, window sills, and baseboards.  Whew, I get exhausted just writing all of that out.  These areas can surprisingly hold a lot of dust.  My mom had me clean our wood paneled walls when I was younger and I have my kids clean our walls now.  This is a great chore to pass on to any youngins you have at home.  Microfiber cloths are again my go to rag of choice.  They’re also great to cover a broom with and use to reach the high places you can’t reach without a ladder.
  6. Electronics.  A quick swipe with a CLEAN microfiber cloth usually does the trick but if there is any build up from sticky little fingers use a wipe especially for electronics.  I would recommend testing a new wipe in an inconspicuous area if you haven’t used that brand before.  If you’re cleaning and crevices around vents or cords it’s best to turn off and unplug the device before dusting.
  7. Curtains and Blinds.  Vacuum both sides of your curtains regularly to avoid build up.  I’m sure it’s recommended to have them laundered on a regular basis too but I never do…maybe I should.  For dusting blinds you could use a feather duster, or a microfiber cloth and painstakingly go over each row.  What I do is fill a bathtub with warm soapy water and dunk the whole set of blinds in there swishing them around, wiping quickly and patting dry before rehanging.  That might not be the best way but it works for me and it quickly gets them sparking clean.
  8. Couches.  I love to deep clean my furniture by using the tools on my vacuum to “brush” my cushions and to get in the crevices and get out any left behind crumbs.  Why do I like to do clean a couch?  I’m weird I guess.
  9. Ceiling fans.  We have a special duster especially for fan blades.  It’s easy peasy and leaves the blades clean.  A chair and a cleaning rag work just as well though but I’m lazy.
  10. Light fixtures.  Yearly I’ll clean the ceiling lights.  I wish it was more often but I’m just going to be honest with you.  I’ll clean the floor and table lamps more often with a damp cloth but the ceiling lights get a once a year treatment.  If I’m up to the challenge I’ll clean each light by hand but most of the time I’ll set them in the dishwasher and let it do it’s thing.  No one has to know! :)
  11. Behind the refrigerator and stove.  The first time I cleaned behind mine was when I was pregnant and I wanted EVERYTHING clean.  It was disgusting and took much longer than it should have to clean it because the grime was so thick.  I now clean back there more often with a rag and hot soapy water.  Cleaning behind these may keep your appliances working longer but it also eliminates crumbs that unwanted pests may feast on.  Plus, you’ll feel like super woman for having cleaned something that no one would ever see just because you could.
  12. Furnace vents.  I use our vacuum’s attachments to regularly clean the dust that is in the vents in our home.  This is a job my daughter loves to do for me.  It’s recommended that furnace ducts should be professionally cleaned every few years.
There you have it folks, those are my dusting tips that will hopefully help you clean your home more efficiently and keep dust from accumulating and effecting your health. Out of curiosity, how often do you dust around your home?  Also, if you have any great dusting tips I would love to hear them.  Please share and tips or tricks you have in the comments below!
