Image if you could create and maintain an organized environment?

Two years ago a client's house got broken into.

The burglar alarm rang and the police arrived. 

My client was at work, so her friendly next door neighbour phoned her and explained what was happening.

When she arrived at the scene (her house) she was quite shocked to see the number of police cars and neighbours standing around waiting for her. 

Apparently there had been some armed robberies in the area recently, so this break in was being taken very seriously. 

She unlocked her front door and started to walk in, but the police held her back and said they needed to go first in case there was anyone armed still in the house. 

Like many ADHDers, she was too curious to wait outside, so she followed the police officers at a distance. 

As they entered her living room she heard them whistle and say,

They really did a number in here!’ 

My client thought the worst, but when she entered her living room it was just as she had left it in the morning.

Full of clutter. 

The police thought the robbers had ransacked her place. 

 They hadn’t. 

It was something she had done herself over many years. 

A few things had been stolen from her house that day, but nothing that couldn’t be replaced (her jewelry that had sentimental value was still there). 

She got an alarm system upgrade and was surprisingly calm about the whole experience of having her house broken into. 

However, the police officer’s words, ‘They really did a number in here,’ rang through her ears again and again.

It didn’t make her feel good, but it did ignite her motivation to declutter. 

She just wanted to know how. 

How does someone with ADHD, who is smart and talented in many areas of life, start on the large mountain of clutter in her home? 

The answer: 15 minutes a day. 

I call this The Daily Method. 

 

Adults with ADHD tend to think they need to dedicate a whole days or weeks to decluttering. So, they put it off to the weekend or set aside vacation time.

The problem is when that time arrives, your energy evaporates because it feels like such a huge task. Instead of decluttering you procrastinate. 

The Daily Method on the other hand, gets you working on your clutter every day.

15 minutes doesn’t take much physical or mental energy. It has a compound effect where little actions over time bring big results. 

Plus, it allows you to get really good at decluttering. Decluttering is a bit like a muscle. The more you do it, the easier it gets because you become more skilled at it. 

The Daily Method is just one of the techniques in the course ‘Clear and Calm: How to Declutter the ADHD friendly way.

Introducing Clear and Calm

How to Declutter the ADHD Friendly Way

Here's what you will learn lesson by lesson

1. Introduction Video

In this lesson you will learn the behind-the-scenes reason why ADHDers have clutter. Knowing the background for why things are the way they are helps to lay a solid foundation for change so you can stop feeling guilty and start feeling hopeful.

2. Mindset Video

In addition to the practical reasons why ADHDers can have clutter, there is also a mindset piece. It is helpful to have an awareness of this important mindset factor so that the changes (clear spaces) can be long lasting.

3. Motivation Video

ADHD is less about attention and more about motivation. When you feel motivated, attention follows and you enjoy taking action.

Discover what your underlying motivation is for decluttering, so that you have a bigger reason ‘why’ than wanting a tidy space (although that is important too!).

4. Strategy Video

It’s time to get strategic! In this lesson you get clear on where you want to declutter and what the best decluttering method for you is, so that you can see progress quickly.

5. The Daily Method Video

In this lesson you learn The Daily Method for decluttering. There is no rule that says decluttering has to be done in long stretches of time, like “all weekend.” Decluttering in micro chunks overrides procrastination and resistance so that you build momentum and decluttering becomes an effortless part of your daily life.

6. Out of Sight Out of Mind Video

One of the reasons why people with ADHD have clutter is because of the ‘out of sight out of mind factor.’ Putting items away behind closed doors means you might forget them. To combat this you might keep items ‘out where you can see them,’ which is a good strategy, but your home can look cluttered.

n this lesson you will learn how to support your memory so that you know where everything is even if it’s out of sight.

7. Avoid cleaning binges Video

Living with ADHD can mean jumping from one activity to the next, leaving a trail of unfinished tasks behind you. In this lesson you will learn how to make ‘tidying as go’ second nature so that you avoid the need for big cleaning binges.

8. House work Video

Does the thought of housework drain your physical and mental energy? In this lesson you will learn a technique that actually makes housework feel like a game. That means you have all the energy and motivation to clean your home from top to bottom. Here is what one course member said.

I just finished cleaning for hours and it is the first time I have done that in a long time. I usually do it for 5 minutes here and there and don't feel like I'm getting anything accomplished.

I haven't completed the Clear and Calm course yet but I LOVE it!

It is really helping me.

9. Good bye paper mountain Video

A classic feature of an ADHD home is piles of paper. These paper piles accumulate quickly and take a lot of mental effort to clear. In this lesson you will learn how to catch up with your current paper piles, as well as techniques so that they don’t appear again in the future.

10. Filing system Video

It’s okay if you did an internal groan when you read ‘filing system.’ It does sound like a boring, linear process – what most ADHDers would rather avoid. However, we keep things simple so it isn’t overwhelming or dull. In this lesson you will learn how to create an ADHD friendly filing system, so that you always know where your important documents are.

11. Seasonal tasks Video

Learn how to take care of seasonal tasks in season – for example, putting away Christmas decorations in January vs. April so that you feel organized, up to date and in sync with your neighbours.

12. Downsize your photograph collections Videos

Organizing physical photos (not digital) is one of the hardest decluttering tasks when you have ADHD. It’s like the black belt level of decluttering.

In these lessons you will learn the 12 ADHD friendly steps to organizing and downsizing your photo collections.

That includes how to handle any emotions that might bubble up to the surface, and how to categorize photos so that the project feels interesting and rewarding.

Hi, I am Jacqueline Sinfield

I am not one of those people who was born with an organization gene. Far from it.

My default mode is messy.

My mum is the opposite. She is a super organized and tidy person, and she created a lovely family home for us all.

That meant I didn’t even know I had a problem until I left home for university when I was 18 years old.

My tiny student room was a mess the whole time I was there.

I thought it was because the space was small, or because I was busy with my studies.

But when I got my first apartment and my first job as a qualified nurse, the mess followed me.

That’s when I knew I had a serious problem.

I looked for ways that worked for me to be organized and tidy.

Not just because I wanted my home to look nice, but also because of how it made me feel.

My head felt organized and I felt less anxious and worried when my environment was neat.

Fast forward a couple of decades…

Being tidy still doesn’t come naturally to me, but I have a system that helps me to keep a tidy space. That means I am productive, focused, proactive and feel calm inside.

It’s the same system that I have shared with my ADHD clients and has helped them to declutter and maintain a tidy environment.

It can help you too!

Could I find this information in the course available for free?

Probably. We live in an information-rich world. That is awesome, but also has its drawbacks. 

When you have ADHD, too much information can make you feel overwhelmed which leads to no action. Clear and Calm has enough information so that you feel informed without causing information overload.

"I am no longer the same person I was. It’s hard to remember the old me now. I learned so much from our coaching. Jacqui has ALL the answers to EVERYTHING. Every problem you throw at her, she immediately gives you a tip or tool to handle that situation." "
