Sometimes the reason we hold onto things, or allow the house or office to get really messy, has to do with stress. Our emotions get the better of us and we can’t seem to get started. At a point like that, advice is not what is needed. Support is needed.
I’ve been there. Dishes in the sink and dirty laundry tossed near the hamper, but not in it. I was giving up because of how I was feeling inside. Once we acknowledge that our feelings have something to do with it, we can take care of ourselves. The mess will straighten itself out once you do some self-care.
Take a bath, or listen to some music you like. Get out of the house and take a walk. Maybe it’s a good time to call a friend and share what you are going through. It may seem silly, but it’s not.
Just remember that it’s not unusual to be overwhelmed. You are not alone. Everybody has days when enough is enough.
Honor your feelings and don’t be afraid to reach out.
