Wendy Zanders, wife, mom, and US Army Veteran, is Your Declutter Coach.
Wendy helps overwhelmed families and those with special needs declutter their lives and homes. She is what you would call a natural organizer. She is the community leader of Your Declutter Coach Community and the Homeschool Community.
At one point, when she was 38 years old, she got very sick. She went to the doctor’s office and had a few tests ran. When the results came back, they said nothing was wrong with her and that she was just stressed. Well, something was wrong, and her body was reacting to the problem. Wendy was not in alignment with her dreams and passion, and she was also overworked. It took her time, but eventually, she knew that she had to make a hard decision. She chooses to take a chance on herself and follow her passion. Her passion for organizing turned into a purpose. She now helps others organize their lives, which can reduce stress for the clients that she serves.
How can stress affect our bodies:
- Dizziness or a general feeling of “being out of it.”
- General aches and pains.
- Increase in or loss of appetite.
- Muscle tension in neck, face, or shoulders.
- Trouble sleeping
Wendy shares a few tips during the podcast on how we can begin our organizing process:
- Reset every night. Before you go to bed, allow yourself to get the next day started in the right direction. Clean your spaces, declutter, and organize each area so that you can wake up in a clean and organized environment the next day.
- Have grace with yourself. Your home needs to be functional. You do live in it, don’t you? She tells listeners to have grace with themselves. She encourages us by stating that our homes don’t have to look like the pictures we see in magazines.
- Get the children involved. Let your children help you clean and organize the home.
