Simplified Organization

organize your attitude


Go to church.

Organize your attitude #35 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!” –Psalm 122:1 We’re not meant to do life alone. We’re not even meant to do life as a single family unit. We’re meant to live in community and fellowship with a body of believers, […]

Hug your kids.

Organize your attitude #34 Once upon a time, I had a somewhat embarrassing item on my daily checklist: Smile at each child. Eventually, I graduated to “Hug each child.” Yes, it was on my list that I had to actually check off, because I knew it was a good and necessary habit for a mom […]

Organize life with realistic expectations.

What happens when we organize something? It gets messed up. Inevitably. We catch up on the laundry, but more clothes hit the hamper within hours. We wash the dishes and clear the counters, then dinner is over and the kitchen is in ruins, with stacks of dirty dishes. We put the kids’ closets in order, […]

Ignore the mess.

Organize your attitude #33 Christmas is almost here. Kids are off school, excited, and doing what kids do best: creating messes. Add to that typical chaos all the extra stuff of Christmas – more sweets, new toys, wrapping paper, packaging – plus extra exuberance – and you have the makings of a real disaster. But […]

Make something.

Organize your attitude #32 At the end of the day, do you check out, flat and dull? After a full day of managing life and other people, do you have no oomph left? After a long enough stretch of doing-doing-doing, we need to recharge, refill our minds and souls, and connect with others and with […]

Eat breakfast.

Organize your attitude #31 Do you stop to eat breakfast every morning? A cheerful disposition is not only mental. It is also physical. Our stomachs have a say in our attitude, and we would do well to not overlook that reality. We’re not above our bodies. When we are hungry, when our blood sugar drops […]

Get dressed.

Organize your attitude #29 How you dress affects your attitude. You know it’s true. Don’t fight it. If your shoes pinch your toes or your jeans cut into your tummy, it makes you cranky and irritable. If you stay in your pajamas, you miss out on the energy flow that comes from knowing you’re ready […]

Say thank you.

organize your attitude #28 We all know gratitude is important. But sometimes it can be a bit vague. Is gratitude a feeling we’re supposed to float around in all day? A sentiment just bubbling up from our heart to our head and staying there, providing serene thoughts and a calm demeanor? Do we just list […]

Find accountability.

Organize your attitude #27 There is so much to do. Always. And there are always distractions, other possibilities, and any number of potential and real problems to derail our plans. Sometimes our plans do need to take back seat to real life. Sometimes we have to adjust on the fly and simply take care of […]

Drink water.

Organize your attitude #26 Some mornings it’s difficult to shake the sleep-fog off. Some afternoons it’s hard to beat the afternoon slump brain fog. Some days we just can’t seem to get all systems clear and running. Try a tall glass of cold water. Even mild dehydration can cause brain fog, fatigue, and headaches. Slugging […]
