Super Organizer Monday: Organization and Illness

Image result for self care and organization

I’m a Professional Organizer AND I am dealing with an illness, Bells Palsy. I am in recovery. Its been 3 months since diagnosis. When I was first diagnosed, the doctor told me to stop everything and rest and take the meds! The first month I didn’t do anything beyond stuff related to my health. Bells Palsy is a nerve in your head condition, so I needed to not stress out my brain. As I look back on things, being organized helped me in those early days. Having dedicated places for things certainly helped me not stress out.

First I had to tell myself that its okay to not organize anything while I am resting and healing. My health was number one! Half of my face was paralyzed, so It wasn’t hard to rest. In the meantime, since I had things in place, I did what I could to continue to keep them that way. I had a drawer by my bed that had all the meds and vitamins in it. My bathroom and kitchen were set up so I could find whatever i need. I was drinking certain types of tea, so I had those teas up front, on a shelf I could reach, easy to get to. I had a file for the medical records in a special spot. My clothes and towels and bathroom items, everything was easy to get to and they all had their places.It helped.

I didn’t think of this until now.

That the time of the onset of the Bells Palsy, my first and only concern was to  take care of myself. My health was number one. I like to organize and teach others how to get organized, so I knew I needed to stop everything and do what the doctors told me, so that I can return to organizing. Now as I look back, i have found ANOTHER reason that being organized is a great thing. Even if it seems like a little thing, little things counts.

As for actual organizing while being ill, I encourge you NOT to worry about that. My message to you is to get organized while you are well and it may serve you WELL while you are ill.

Some NEW Updates to The Super Organizer Universe!

Hello My followers!! How are all of you? Thank you for allowing me to continue to do this 4 years in. As times goes on, I am always looking at the blog. I am not in the same place I was 4 years ago, so my blog is naturally changing too.My viewership/readership is at an all time hit for this niche blog. That makes me so happy! Thanks you! So  I am trying out some new things, and dropping others. I want to keep it fresh for you AND for me! Some of the changes have already happened, so you may recognize them, othekrs are being implemented. As always let me know what you think! Enjoy! 

I am retiring (for now) the Quick Tip Tuesday and Thursdays and the Fast Friday Facts.

I’ve started doing bilingual posts in Spanish and Dutch.

I am starting the new categories: Super Share, Super Thought of the Day, and Super Tip, Super Product

I’m keeping the Sort Out Sunday (which i am working into a book), Super Organizer (about me) 

I am evolving and morphing outside of this blog . My business is shifting to more media and teaching based services, less actual organizing. So its an exciting time for me and hopefully for all of you out there who follow me. Please continue to watch my progression. I will share the ups and downs with you along the way with lessons I learn.

Everyone keep dreaming and acting on those dreams!

Super Organizer Saturday: What To Do With Duplicate Photos.

Image result for duplicate photos

Remember when you had a camera and you take pictures and then you had to get then developed. Oh my how we have changed. WELL many of those pics are out there. I remember when photo places would have specials like 2 for 1. NOW you have all of these photos and in many cases multiple copies.

Stacks of photos can add up and take up space! You don’t have to throw them all out. I have fun and meaningful solution.

Take all duplicate photos out. Your space will increase. Take those duplicate photos and give or send to the appropriate people. Maybe your aunt would love pics of you and her daughter who is no longer with us. Your best friend lost that picture of you and him and your dates at the prom. You can give him a copy. Its meaningful and decreases the clutter in your space. AND its sends positivity into the world.
