Both physical and mental clutter are equal culprits to getting you stuck in the middle of all your daily responsibilities. Physical clutter is when you can’t find your keys as you screech out the front door in the morning, trip over a pile of laundry or find yourself buried under a mountain of paper, while mental clutter includes the myriad of thoughts, ideas, promises, unfinished tasks, guilt, blame and the like that swim around your brain tricking you into inaction.

If you have many things on your list with many of them started but not completed, set deadlines, delegate or move on to number 3 if the value of completing the task is not motivating enough to get you going.

Say no 
Regardless if it is a system or a friendship, if it’s toxic, it’s time for a change.

Schedule time to think
So much time is wasted on tasks that are of low value or no value, leaving you with little or no time for the things that are important. Make time daily and weekly to prioritize and plan.

If you are struggling to move forward mentally, then try focusing first on moving forward physically. Studies show that taking a short break after every 20-45 minutes of input increases your productivity. Find time to exercise as this also helps clear the mind and improves your physical well-being at the same time.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

Everyone at some point in their lives find themselves in a relationship that is unhealthy for one reason or another. Unhealthy relationships often leave us feeling stressed, unhappy and anxious. We become fools when we assign blame and make excuses for the other person not listening to wisdom and ignoring warning signs. The line between being a forgiving person and playing the fool is a hard knocks life learning curve for everyone.

Being a fool does not mean you are unwise. The truth hurts, but believing lies makes you look foolish. In fact, usually a fool is someone who is not aware of insight, ignores the signs of danger and does not understand the consequences of regretful actions. You put up with his nonsense, always put him first, and help him clean-up the mess in his life. A fool is chasing a dreamy future, an idea of an ideal person and is incapable or unwilling of accepting reality. A fool desires sympathy from others for having been afflicted with a person who is constantly hurting them.

Be forgiving without being a fool. It is often very hard to end a relationship even when you know it is bad for you. Let go of the hurt and pain. Nevertheless, hold onto the lesson it taught you. By embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. Consider how forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

However, feeling foolish brings grief to yourself and the people who truly care. Love is blind and love can be foolish but being forgiving and not foolish will hurt a lot less in the end. Think of what will happen if you stay with this person, and how many years of your life would be wasted in an unhealthy relationship. You deserve to be in a healthy and loving relationship.
