Comfort Living 101: Obstacle Elimination in Less Than a Minute

Posted on 11.11.12.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter @comfort_living, you have been keeping track of my travels, doings and observations.  Hopefully along the way, you’ve also been getting some practical tools for balanced living. I do have some cool stuff coming up, including a Right Brain Re-Balancing workshop on Longboat Key, FL on February 20th, but that’s for another blog…

The holiday season is almost upon us, but right now, there’s a window of opportunity to take control over some of the Obstacles that clutter day-to-day living and make it hard to focus on our Treasures.   In my consulting and presentations as well as in my book Comfort Living (which btw, makes a great holiday gift;), I talk about the importance of having a *more balanced lifestyle.

So before the holidays get underway, here are a few quick tips on how to turn down the volume NOW on some of these Obstacles.  With fewer of these to contend with, hopefully you’ll be able to turn UP the volume on some of your Treasures and allow your inner voice to SING!

‘Less is more’ applies to unwanted e-mails, catalogues and telemarketing calls.  I view ALL of these as threats to living well.  Here are 3 quick steps to take control over the junk communication in your life:

1.  Catalogue Chaos:  

BEFORE throwing them in the recycle bin, call the 800 number and ask to be taken off their list — for good!

2.  E-Clutter:

BEFORE pressing delete, find the ‘unsubscribe’ link and make sure that that ‘delete’ will be final.

3.  Cell Phone Telemarketing Calls Are Next, Unless You Take 20 Seconds Now:

Cell phone numbers go public this month, so be forewarned and be proactive.  Call 888.382.1122 and get your cell number on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST.  It takes all of 20 seconds.


I believe that whatever age we are, we each need to take the time to rediscover our inner voice and reenergize it so that it keeps us grounded as we confront the inevitable challenges of day-to-day living.  At the same time, we can also grab bits of time to oust some of the Obstacles that can drain our soul.

*Please note that I’m not talking about ‘perfect balance’.  Partly because I don’t believe in ‘perfect’. Because I don’t think we’re wired for perfect…  and I remain unconvinced that living ‘perfect’ can make us truly happy.  (If it did, then why do you keep going back to that beloved pair of jeans or that old t-shirt every weekend??!  It’s because of how it makes you feel. It’s about the experience, not the appearance, right?)

Good luck taming the junk-info that’s getting in the way of your life!
