Cristian had a productive summer interning with Clutter, a startup company that provides on-demand storage, moving, and packing support (because let's face it - moving is a hassle! 🙈). Cristian enjoyed learning all about the in's and out's working for a startup and may even consider working for one in the future! Thanks @clutter for hiring ScholarMatch students 🙌🏽
Running on cluttered.
By the end of the day, we're exhausted. We barely have time to breathe. We take part in activities that drain us dry. Instead, we need to take time to rest and fill ourselves with God's hope and joy.
But so many of us are running on cluttered. We call it full, but it's actually all junk. Our schedules are cluttered. Our relationships are cluttered. Our lives are cluttered. •
We all need to declutter.
I spent ALL day learning about time management today. I learned that decluttering our lives is not about doing less, but doing intentionally. If you have an 8-hour work day, how much of that time is actually spent on productive activity? We need to cut the junk from our lives so we can fulfill our purpose.
Rest is not just sitting on the couch. Rest is not getting more sleep at night. Rest is removing the junk that has cluttered up our hearts and surrendering to the grace and love of Jesus.
Here are some practical ways to make better use of your time:
1) Start your day with a motivating morning routine
2) Create actionable goals
3) Listen to your body (Studies show that we are less productive when we plow through our fatigue than when we take time to rest and then continue after a break)
4) Cut distractions
5) Schedule timeblocks where you are laser focused and set on achieving your goals.
Which one of these points is the most challenging for you?
Also, shout-out to the @livingfaithny women's ministry for this cool mug and tea! I love how you can see the cloud of tea brewing through the mug.
Minimalist challenge... today is track your treasures. The owl is my favorite fall decoration, with the ghost coming in a close second. Both I have had for years n years but I enjoy getting them out every fall. The witch is new to me ( thank you Mom) and I like her. Last treasure is my own little space... coffee maker, mugs, my own phone charger! This is my own little niche and I am grateful for it. Each mug has a memory and if I don’t “love” it, I give away. Thanks Amanda Flinn for this month’s challenge. I haven’t been posting pics of my messes but it’s definitely making me work on my piles. #minimalism#minimalist#clearing#clutterfree#clutter#minimalistchallenge#favorites#cleaning
Meet our "purgatory cupboard".😄 This is where things go when we might want to get rid of them, but aren't sure if we're ready to fully commit.😉
Having this sort of in-between/limbo spot gives us time to experiment, to see what life would be like without a particular object. (Like, do we reeeeeally need four spatulas?😱)
Occasionally, we end up rescuing something. I definitely snatched back our veggie peeler (ain't nobody got time to peel beets with a knife!) and a Stompin' Tom Connors record - because are you even Canadian if you don't love Stompin' Tom?!😂
But most of the time we don't.🙅
The purgatory cupboard has definitely helped us understand our real needs and wants. It's also made it easier to declutter mounds of crap over the years, and ultimately downsize into our tiny 300sqft/28m2 apartment!🙌
👉What have you tried living without for a while? Did you end up missing it?

PERSPECTIVE!!! Everything changes yet nothing changes. When we make changes in our living space, subtle or not so subtle, our perspective shifts. When our perspective shifts we gain an opportunity to change our experience. The scale for this change is wide open. Your home offers you endless opportunities to shift your experience of your life. This is what Dwellosophy is ALL ABOUT! Using the canvas of your home to impact the change you want for your life. Dwellosophy centers around you, your life and your goals. It’s about how you feel, how your space feels to you. It’s about what inspires you and curating a space that empowers that passion.
I hung a yoga sling in my kitchen, it was the only place that made sense structurally. It offers me a different perspective in an obvious way, yet it also offers me another perspective. It reminds me that I don’t have to follow the rules. If I want a swing in my kitchen, I can hang a swing in my kitchen. It reminds me that I love hanging upside down, it’s good for me and it FEELS SO GOOD! My experience of my home and what happens in my subconscious mind has shifted since I hung the yoga sling. You don’t have to make such a big change to get the benefits of perspective. Do something in your space today to shift your perspective, plant an intention with it. It can be as simple as rearranging your coffee table or throw pillows.

A decluttered space is very important to most Scandinavian peeps. Minimalistic, simple and practical. The houses used to be very small, so there wasn’t much of option way back then… The tradition keeps going, even if you have a big house, you won’t find a cluttered home.
We get asked by people all the time if we can help their loved one that is a hoarder but doesn't want the help. They hope that we can help "fix" the situation just by being there and getting started on the project. We tell them that we have one firm rule... Everyone must be on board and ready in order for us to be able to help; otherwise, it simply won't work. You can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped.
CLUTTERED CANS 🤷🏽♀️: Not anymore. We rearranged the canned goods in this pantry...taking advantage of the deep shelves by using these horizontal can dispensers. >>> SWIPE to see what it looked like before. #pantry#organizedbylimcgi#beforeandafter ...
"Tutte le tecnologie tendono a creare un nuovo ambiente umano." -Marshall Mc Luhan
La rivoluzione tecnologica ha portato un cambiamento drastico nella società, trasformandola in una società digitale.
L'uomo ha visto un netto miglioramento delle proprie condizioni di vita con il progessotecnologico ma la fuga dalla realtà naturale per rifugiarsi in una realtà virtuale, rende l'individuo solo, rinchiuso nel proprio "nido" digitale.
La società digitale è una società in cui si ha la possibilità di comunicare con gli altri in maniera rapidissima ma spesso non si sa cosa comunicare e i rapporti umani diminuiscono.
L'accumulazione è desiderio di felicità che provoca inappagamento e solitudine.
Titolo: Nido tecnologico
Dal progetto "CLUTTER: un nido di desideri indotti"
Foto 5 e 6 di 10.
Il progetto fotografico è volto ad analizzare il tema dell’accumulazione che contraddistingue le persone della società odierna.
Clutter è caratterizzato da 5 foto simboliche, i nidi, accompagnate da 5 foto descrittive, le finestre.
Il soggetto dei «nidi» è una bambina vestita di bianco, simbolo di semplicità e purezza d’animo, è il “fanciullino” interiore di Giovanni Pascoli, che vede il mondo per la prima volta e prova stupore, felicità. Il fanciullino è in ognuno di noi ma pian piano perdiamo la capacità di ascoltare la sua voce e non siamo più in grado di provare meraviglia e di accontentarci delle cose semplici, cerchiamo per cui costantemente di trovare la felicità nelle cose (acquistando vestiti, telefoni, cibo…). Costruiamo un nido di oggetti in cui poterci rifugiare per provare piacere e sentirci al sicuro. Il nido artificiale in realtà è una gabbia in cui ci rinchiudiamo. Sebbene il soggetto principale delle foto sia la bambina, l’occhio, subito dopo aver dato il primo sguardo alla ragazzina, è portato a concentrarsi maggiormente sugli oggetti che la circondano, ad esaminarli, rendendoli dunque i veri protagonisti, sono infatti gli oggetti a prendere il controllo e a dare significato all’immagine.
La stessa bambina è il soggetto delle «finestre», ritratta nel momento in cui guarda la fonte dei suoi desideri indotti.
