Just say no to taking on extra “stuff” that doesn’t nourish your soul.

Trust your intuition!

Learn to meditate-even 5 minutes can clear & refresh your mind.

Laugh out loud, it just feels good!

Bed time ritual, create your own! Prepare to sleep well.

Early to bed, early to rise… you know the saying, & I’ve found it to be true!

Get up earlier. Start with just 15 or 30 minutes, eventually try to work up to an hour. It’s like creating free time, just for you!

Pack a cooler-ditch the drive thru. This will save you money, and your body will thank you!

Drink lots of water. Make it your beverage of choice.

Try a new hobby- how about the new adult coloring books? They are super fun and relaxing too…

Turn off the TV, grab a book, puzzle or board game instead.

Simplify your wardrobe, less is really more. Life is too short to wear clothes you don’t love!

Move to a smaller home, Need a Realtor? I know a good one!

Declutter your environment and watch your stress disappear.

Be present in the moment, it is truly all we really know for sure!

Try journal writing. I teach a whole workshop just on this alone. It is a very powerful tool!image

The Art of Home Staging!

simply Shic

Thinking of selling your home or just wishing your home was bigger, more inviting, or relaxing? Often times having a fresh set of eyes looking at your space can lead to some creative energy and transformation of your space.

Home staging is most often done when you are trying to sell a home or when a model home is built and needs furnishings to look more Inviting to promote sales. I believe we should all have the model home where we live right now! Now I realize people don’t live day to day with everything perfect, clean and clutter free. However, what if your home had an overhaul? Maybe just a closet, a room, the kitchen or your home office? What if you felt peaceful, productive, energized, and nourished every time you came home? What if by making a few changes (or in some cases more than a few, but a work in progress…) you could have a truly wonderful haven to retreat to after working all day? Consider a home staging consult with me, Kelly Kurtz, your personal Holistic Health and Lifestyle Coach, author of “Fresh Paint” and Licensed Realtor. I specialize in clearing the clutter from your mind, your body, and your home!

Think home staging is a good idea, but too expensive or just a luxury you don’t deserve? Let me ask you this… Do you want to prepare healthy meals, but your kitchen counters are piled with lunch boxes, junk mail and Tupperware overflow? Do you long to reconnect with your spouse or significant other before you drift off to sleep, but your bedroom floor is piled with dirty laundry, your bed is covered with outfits you tried on in the morning, but changed three times before rushing out the door and your drawers overstuffed with clothes, junk and clutter? It’s no wonder you are not feeling relaxed or romantic, and not getting a restful night’s sleep.
