Learn about creating a peaceful office space as we begin our month focusing on interviews. Do you control your clutter? Or does your clutter control you? Unclear your clutter inside now we’ll teach you awareness as well as action steps to create change in your life. Come on, let’s get started. The month of October is inspired because I’ve been wanting to do interviews for a while. And I always think it makes it interesting. It’s easier for me to edit interviews than to schedule and do live it just I’m still caring for my mom. And that’s a priority. And so it’s harder to do that. But I always think you guys enjoy listening. It’s great. I know that it’s me. But I think it’s also interesting when I have guests and I’m always curious about what other people want to know and what their questions are. And all the interviews I’m sharing this month, people did their homework, did the research, ask really good questions, great conversations. And so it is something that I thought you all enjoy. And even though we don’t five, two days, I’m gonna have five interviews this month. All fairly current, but all good information. First up this month is from the nothing left to give podcast. And I’m going to share did a couple interviews with her. And I’m going to share another one at the end of the month because people really were excited about that one. So Chris McDonald is the host, but she has now started a new podcast called The holistic counseling podcast. And that’s holistic counseling podcast.com. And I’ll put that in the show notes. And on YouTube. She has almost 40 episodes from nothing left to give, and they’re still available for you to listen. I don’t know what will happen with COVID. as I record this, that delta variant is going on, I just read that Twitter is closing. I think it said there la in New York offices indefinitely. And I can’t remember if they put a hold on what they’re doing. I know my friends in LA she’s not supposed to go back to the office until September. I’m obviously recording this I recording this in August. But when these are released in October, there’s a good chance that many of you will still be working from home, or some type of a hybrid schedule. So I think it’s good information, especially my most important point, which is, I think very important if you work from home. I touched on mental clutter a little bit as having a clear office space can support you and having mental clarity. So enjoy my interview with Chris.

Chris McDonald 3:21
Welcome back to the nothing left to give podcast. I’m your host Chris McDonald. I’m so excited for you to hear from today’s guest. Her name is Julie Coraccio. She’s an award winning professional life and end of life organizer, and certified life coach. She’s passionate about supporting people in clearing clutter in all areas of their lives, getting organized, and becoming more mindful and aware. She’s here today to talk about how to clear and organize your home office workspace. A fun fact about her is that she’s about to start a year long course on herbs and plant medicine, which sounds really interesting to me. Welcome to the show, Julie.

Julie Coraccio 4:00
Hey, Chris. Thanks for having me. I’m thrilled to be here. Can’t wait

Chris McDonald 4:03
to hear more about what you have to say. I feel like I’m always on the path of trying to be more organized.

Julie Coraccio 4:09
You know what I think like with anything in life forfeits doesn’t come to you naturally. First of all, I believe it’s a skill you can learn. So someone’s listening and they’re disheartened. Don’t give up. You can learn to clear clutter you and you can get organized. Absolutely 100%

Chris McDonald 4:25
For sure. But before we get started, can you talk a little bit more about your work right

Julie Coraccio 4:29
now? Sure. So I am as you mentioned, I’m very passionate about supporting people in clearing clutter. And this is because when you Clear Your Clutter, you can share your gifts with the world. I have a definition I consider myself a holistic organizer and the clutter. When you clear your clutter, you can share your gifts with the world. And if you clutters anything that prevents you from creating the life you choose deserve and desire powerful I’m also passionate, I have recently moved towards the area of end of life organization, I was wondering what that was? Well, you know, we have this fear in our culture, I’m just gonna speak to American culture and your other listeners, you know, would have a take on whatever their country they’re from, we have this fear of death, as we see it as something to be avoided, like look at plastic surgery, and all this money that spent to be appearing youthful, we’re all gonna die, no one gets out of here alive. And so if you can accept death, that allows you to live your life fully. And so it would be maybe organizing all your paperwork to take to the lawyer, writing an obituary, planning legacy, her lots of components. Wow, I

Chris McDonald 5:45
never even thought of that. What really started

Julie Coraccio 5:47
my passion was about three years ago, my father had my brother and me meet with his attorney and his accountant and I want to say like you don’t have my parents aren’t super wealthy. But there were certain things you know, one of the My Favorite father’s favorite lines was I want a poppers casket. I want the cheapest coffin you can find. And when your mother overrules that and buy something expensive letter, you know, but that he needed to get his wishes known. And it was, No, I’m very emotional, I started to tear up. But when I pulled back, I thought, when he they go, I’m going to be able to grieve. I’m not going to have to be running around finding passwords, wondering what did he want, and it brought peace of mind. And I’d like others to have that.

Chris McDonald 6:31
So this shows geared towards burned out healthcare professionals. So why do you think organization and clearing clutter is so important in preventing burnout?

Julie Coraccio 6:40
That’s a great question, Chris, I could share statistics to the cows come home. And I will try to avoid that. But I would like to touch on a couple of points. Women who have they’ve done studies and you know, Google’s your friend here, but women who had cluttered homes had high levels of cortisol throughout the day. And I think as a therapist, you could probably address that better than I could, if they have piles, they’ve been less satisfied in life. It’s harder for your brain to focus. Clutter has called I’ve worked with therapists when working with clients and cause embarrassment and isolation. I mean, from a physical perspective, you have a lot of clutter, you could slip and fall, you know, it’s been linked to non compliance and meds and they found that depression can cause clutter and clutter can cause depression. And that’s just a few. Yeah, I’ve seen that for sure. You know, from a work perspective, since you know, right now, I know we’re all on COVID-19 And a lot therapist or and health professionals are doing telemedicine. But if you have a disorganized office, then a potential client might be like, Hmm, not sure if I want to work with this person. Because they’ve done studies where workers believe that if you have a disorganized office, then you’re less productive. It’s unprofessional, you know, people have lost money from not getting reimbursed. And if you’re, you know, in therapy, I don’t know about you, Chris, but I want every dime back.

Chris McDonald 8:05
Yeah, sure. Especially if you can, it’s something that’s in your control, right? Yes, right to clear clutter and be organized. Yes. But I know a lot of our listeners have had made a quick transition to working from home and doing telemedicine and it can be a big struggle to adjust if you’re not used to that. So what kind of tips do you have to help them clear clutter in their workspace and help them get more organized?

Julie Coraccio 8:28
Well, the first thing I’d like to mention, because you said that people are working from home now create a space to work. Now as I’m talking to you, I have a designated home office, my husband has a designated home office, but that might not be possible. So whether it’s on their dining room table, it’s a little look, create a workspace area. And then Chris, when you’re done for the day, you get out of that area, you don’t take your work to your couch, you don’t take your work to the bedroom, make sure that there’s a designated workspace and once the day is over, you get out of that area, because if not, that’s going to create a lot of stress. It’s going to create a lot of mental clutter, feeling like everywhere you go. There’s there’s work. Yes, exactly. The other thing that I would say is and this can go with your regular office is be aware of invisible clutter. Now I’m going to get a little weird for a moment. Everything’s energy, whether you believe that from a spiritual perspective as I do, or physics perspective. So you might be like, hey, my office is all decluttered. But then you open up the door, stuff falls out, you open up your desk drawers, your files are a hot mess, that’s energy. And people can feel that and sense that and it affects you because there’s this drip drip drip drain on the back of your head saying, wow, I’ve got this clutter and it affects you whether or not you’re aware of it. So the first thing I’m going to say is just be aware of invisible clutter. And visible is the word of the day. And then there are just two basic steps. I mean, we can go through the whole organizing thing. But what I’m going to suggest when you listen to any of these tips for physical organizing, and decluttering is just sort out. So like if you have books, like for instance, on my bookshelf, I have writing books, I have the books for my plant class, I have books for self improvement. So you could go through and say, Alright, or you might have textbooks for health professionals, like if you put all the textbooks together, you might realize, oh, I have a duplicate, I didn’t know that. So when you put stuff that goes together, you can then take the next step of editing or purging. And that way, you can let go of duplicates. And you’re going to want to remember you want to make sure like for instance, if you take things home, or if you have take something the bedroom to read it like when you are going through the step of decluttering. And getting organized, you want to make sure you have gotten things for more ever they’re located Does that makes sense? That makes sense. The other thing I would suggest is to look up your space. And so one thing that helps keep clutter at a minimum. And to get organized is to create areas or zones. So for example, I have a reference bookcase in my office, and I use that that I put that I have to get up and go get something because I use it frequently. The filing cabinet is a whole other area. Now that’s a little closer because I do filing a little more often than a reference book. And then I have an area for podcasting. I have an area for writing. And so I’ve set up different zones, which has allowed it to be like, Okay, I know this is the home, when I’m finished, I need to return the book there, I need to return the file there. And so that’s one thing that is going to help you keep your space too cluttered.

Chris McDonald 11:44
So really making that conscious effort to keep the spaces where you’ve designated them and putting stuff back is important.

Julie Coraccio 11:51
Exactly. And the other caveat, I’ll say which might sound again a little strange, but I’ve seen it with clients, are you inspired to be in your office? You know, if you come in and you hate the wall color, or it just is not inspiring, or it’s too cold or it’s too hot? Make sure you’ve created an environment where you want to work that’s really important.

Chris McDonald 12:14
What do you think would be important to have like on your workspace area that could be inspiring or make you feel more comfortable?

Julie Coraccio 12:21
Well, you know what, that is a really personal question. So for instance, I just got a bunch of dried lavender. I love the smell that sounds vendor. Yeah, Trader Joe’s really good deal. So I went and got some lavender. I have pictures in my office. Now some people might disagree with this. I have a cat tree. So we’ve got one of the kitties who snooze and right now with me, but you know, to me, they bring in life and good energy. And so if you’re inspired by pictures or quotes, like I have a have on my bulletin board three good idea. Yeah, yeah. 365 days of greatness. You know, whatever it is, if you’re visual, make sure if you smelled and get the dried lavender or do an incense stick, whatever it is that you know that you when you look at that. And you know, it’s like the cats I want to make money so they can live a wonderful life. That’s part of my inspiration. So whatever it is, it’s going to inspire you.

Chris McDonald 13:17
I have my essential oils to my my desk now. And I just set it up with some crystals, just some things to kind of ground myself and and with all my hand wash and I got my hand cream.

Julie Coraccio 13:28
Excellent. No, see, that’s perfect.

Chris McDonald 13:31
Yeah, exactly. And my room spray. So I sprays to get rid of negative energy. And this is all stuff that I was using in my office. And I realized when I got to my home office, I was like, Wait, I don’t have this set up properly the way I want it. Right. And then didn’t that make a difference when you brought? I feel better? Yeah, yeah. Cuz I think a lot of us are thrust into this full time I was doing telehealth part time, but a lot of people it just to be thrown in full time. And even if you’ve never done it, it’s like discombobulated.

Julie Coraccio 14:01
But you know what, I am so glad that you mentioned that because I want to bring up a point. You know, I shared my definition of clutter earlier, but that can create mental clutter. And so I’m going to encourage you to see this time as an opportunity. If you haven’t done telemedicine before. Dang, that’s a new skill you’re going to learn. And maybe that allows you to get more clients or perhaps that allows you to open you up to a whole other service, you say, Hey, I’m going to do a free class, you discover you love it, people are interested and you’ve just created another source of income. And one thing that I’ve noticed through life, Chris is when I try to control everything, you know, good luck with that. And so when this first happened, because my work you know, my business currently is pretty much in the tank. Now. I’ve got books and classes and some other things but the main source of income is gone. And for a moment I panic. And then I said okay, Julie, let’s take a step back. You’re stuck, but have no clue what you need to do to move forward. Would you like to feel energized and excited every day? Are you ready to create the life you desire? Julie Coraccio to support you in finding the answers within. And then taking action to make changes happen. Visit reawaken your brilliance calm, to learn how Julie can support you with life coaching. Your husband has job security, you know, they frozen hiring, you are going to be okay. You have family, you’re not going to be put on the street, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so when I came to that moment said, I’m going to be okay. And I relaxed, I found out I had an unexpected source of income. And this was randomly found Chris, it was like, I’m doing this system this and then it came. And then my husband had done a health plan and had to quit because they they couldn’t get the schedules to mesh. Well, I said, Oh, let me check this. Well, that was over $500. So right back on the credit card. Fantastic. And so those opportunities were able to flow to me, life opened up, because I had was clear I didn’t have was it

Chris McDonald 16:12
you’re changing your mindset. Right? So then absolutely, things flow better, right?

Julie Coraccio 16:17
Yes. And to say like, it’s stressful for everyone. So anytime you can see it as an opportunity. What are the silver linings? How can I have gratitude that switches your mindset? And that’s what is your energy?

Chris McDonald 16:29
You talk like a therapist? Oh, thank

Julie Coraccio 16:31
you. I take that as a compliment.

Chris McDonald 16:34
Yes, that’s how we talk a lot of times, but even we get stressed out? It’s okay.

Julie Coraccio 16:39
No, but that’s great. Why are you doing the podcast? Because you know, health professionals need this resource for sure.

Chris McDonald 16:45
And I know another stressor. And I know a lot of colleagues have the same problem is just keeping up with email and organizing. And I don’t know about you, but with this COVID-19, I have had an abundance of email from every company I’ve ever dealt with, or insurance or their COVID-19 policies. And it’s just trying to keep up with that and keep my email somewhat organized. So do you have any recommendations on that?

Julie Coraccio 17:07
I do. And this is what I learned. One of the best tips I learned from a productivity specialists productivity is not my specialty. And that’s an area unto itself. But this changed how I viewed email. And their suggestion was switch from thinking you’re checking your email, because how often I said, I’ve got to check my email to processing. Because when you do that, you have to make a decision. Yes. So I get an email, can I delete it? Do I have to take action? Can I hand it off to my assistant? Or my virtual assistant cannot? Do I need to defer on it now because someone says, I don’t know, ask a question that you need to think through. So that’s the first thing switch your thinking from checking to processing, because that’s gonna force you to make the decision because how many of us have emails languishing in, you know, the No Decision Zone, and a lot. Right, right. And then also process your email, don’t I remember when I had my last job, they had outlook, and I hated it, because you’d get that unread mail, and there’d be a thing or you’d see that bold thing, or you’d have the little envelope at the bottom of your screen saying that, you know, the email needed to be answered. And so lock off certain times for it. So meaning maybe you check your email from nine to 915 12 to 1215, five to 515, don’t be feeling like you have to respond every second to the day. You can also group similar messages together like creating a folder and and one of the biggest mistakes I see that people make and getting organized is they say, well, so and so did it. They’re the latest and greatest. And you don’t take into account how you like to do things. And the example uses my addresses in my phone, my phone numbers are organized by first name. So C for Chris J for Julie, I don’t do by last name now. And most people tend to do by last name. Now for whatever reason, that works better for me. So it’s really important to take in your lifestyle, how you do things. So if you group similar messages together, maybe you need to do by topic, like COVID-19 Yes, I have a whole difference, right? COVID-19 insurance, or you do by project or contact but it’s got to make sense to you.

Chris McDonald 19:31
Yeah, well, that makes sense. Instead of just thinking about well, this worked for someone else doesn’t mean it’s gonna work for you. So you really do have to know thyself,

Julie Coraccio 19:38
right? Yes, yes. For make it a lot easier. Hmm, that’s really

Chris McDonald 19:42
helpful. So what about with to do lists because I know that’s, like I said, I’m feeling I’m always on the journey of trying to reorganize to do lists and how to get things so that I’m not wasting time and

Julie Coraccio 19:56
fantastic. Now I’m going to tell you this is related. I’m going to call like to do lists kind of time clutter, or that kind of fits into that category for me, so one of the big changes that I made this year, and it’s had such a great impact on me, and I don’t write it down. But part of my to do list every day is self time. Simply I know that I need to spend time on myself, sometime during the workday, this isn’t all the separate stuff I do. And so it’s a really loosey goosey category. So it could include snuggling with the cat, it could include naptime. It could include closing my eyes for 10 minutes, putting my face in the sunshine for five minutes, hugging a tree, if I’m really stressed, and I need to go take a bath, hey, you know what? Flexibility. So I encourage you make time for yourself throughout the day. And again, if you’re able to not write it down, I think that helps because you don’t want it to feel like a chore you don’t want it to feel like a to do because that can add a lot more stress. Other things with creating a to do list is I encourage you to have time for opportunities. When I worked in the before I left my job. It was the craziest place I’ve ever worked in. And there was literally an emergency every day. And so I got in the habit, okay, what’s going to come around today. But then I switched my thinking and said, Well, how can I see it as an opportunity if I leave space. And remember, when you leave space in your life, you welcome new things, there is energy and space for things to come. So I say well, how can I leave room for opportunities. And then something that’s really helped me with my to do list is visualizing. Okay, so I look at my to do list. I also say okay, I see my handling any problem that comes my way and not stressing me out, I see my completing my five tasks that I have written for the day and getting your mindset, you know what I will be able to do this. Also, if some of your to dues can be routines, that’s really helpful. So if you you know, like a routine, I talked about doing email, thing, you have paper correspondence that you need to respond to, if you have some writing I write every day and that you know, there’s a bazillion things to write, then I encourage you to do that as well. And finally, the other tip that I would add that I’ve done that’s had a significant impact when I’m able now if I have scheduled clients, I don’t have as much flexibility. But like on an admin day, I’ll say okay, what do I feel moved and motivated to do in this moment? If I’m feeling like writing I blam. And I feel like I you know, I was doing something other day I was like, I’m really not feeling writing. Let me edit a video. So asking yourself, like, what is my energy going to be best for right now. Because when you do that, you’re excited to do it, it’s easier. It’s not like pulling teeth to get you to do it. Otherwise, I think it could feel like a chore. Exactly. And we know when it gets who wants to do chores, right.

Chris McDonald 22:54
And I think as as therapists and other healthcare professionals, we live by our schedule, right with when clients are scheduled. So if you add in more things, all this has to be my self care time, then that’s gonna feel more like a chore and broccoli. But figuring out when you’re going to do some kind of time for you and whatever that looks like. And I know I create my own schedule around exercise, so Okay, great. Yeah. Because we can we can have your own private practice, you can. Not everybody has that luxury. But, you know, so Monday nights, my yoga night, you know, Wednesday, and Friday morning, I do exercise in the morning before I start work, I still do that now at home, too. So I just write, but I’ve gotten such a routine that I don’t even think about it now. It just is. And I think that works for you. Yeah. And once you can figure out for yourself, what we know what that self time can be and and get into a routine of it. It does. It’s not something you even have to make an intention as much. Yes, exactly. You kind of roll with it. And just this is what I do. Yes. And I always tell people to the same thing. The same time, the same day each week.

Julie Coraccio 23:58
Well, you know, they’ve done studies, and I can’t remember off the top of my head. But when you do that, for whatever reason you get it done more quickly.

Chris McDonald 24:06
Yeah. Oh, for sure. I can I can totally attest to that just becomes ingrained after a while. Mm hmm. So is there anything else with the mental clutter that you think would be helpful through this difficult time? Because the hard part, I think, especially from for mental health therapists that are out there, it’s, we’re having a hard time, and we got to help other people.

Julie Coraccio 24:27
Right, right. Yeah, that’s excellent question. So that’s why self care is really important right now. And again, you know, say, Chris, I don’t know how if you know, my therapist, or you work a 15 minute hour, if you get a break in between clients, I’m assuming that you know, hopefully, Yeah, everybody’s different. Right? But like, can I take five minutes to meditate? You know, sometimes that’s all you need. Yeah. And when all else fails, I close my eyes and breathe. I’m like, Okay, let’s take five deep breaths. Maybe I need to ground myself. And if you have it Huge fan of having a plan in place and so they don’t get overwhelmed. Say, Okay, like I have, you know, like this thing I shared with you before the podcast that I’m just experienced a crazy neighborhood thing in the past 48 hours. I’m like, Okay, well, I can control how I respond. You take a deep breath, let me breathe through this may not respond, let me what others do is about them. How I respond is about me, that’s one of my favorite little thing. Yes. Amen to that, right. And then whether it’s meditate, and again, like, it doesn’t have to be this five hour, one hour thing you can do a lot in five minutes, simply closing your eyes and centering yourself can have a huge impact. So that’s something you know, to clear, your mental clutter is have a part of routine by that like, okay, or maybe it’s even gratitude, you know, gratitude clears all your clutter in every single area. And you know, just little things and find what works for you make a game out of it. Ah, well, what can I try today that’s different to clear my mental clutter and start again, we don’t want it to feel like a chore.

Chris McDonald 26:02
Yeah, I think going through this that one of the that’s what I tell clients, everybody and family that everyday just naming some things you’re grateful for that you have that you live in a house that you, you know, can go outside and still breathe the fresh air, all those small things add up,

Julie Coraccio 26:17
that they really do, you know, and that again, like and that’s about other whatever, there’s other self care is going to support you. What is it that you need? And you know, I would say, I can’t speak to health care professionals and therapists as you can, but you know, be gentle with yourself and ask for support if you don’t have to be the be all and end all for everyone and everything. Honor that you’re feeling burned out. Honor that you’ve gotten the message. You know what? Something’s off here. I need to reach out, no one’s gonna think anything less of you. Write

Chris McDonald 26:49
is a hard time. And I think just having that self compassion is yes. So what is your greatest passion outside of your career? My greatest passion outside of my career? Well, I

Julie Coraccio 26:59
am very excited about this. I literally start tomorrow. I’m excited about this online, herbal and plant medicine class, when I had a really rough year in 2018, someone that I love and trust to do I consider a mentor said, Let’s try some teas. And that’s really had a huge impact on me. And I would say also my family, the cats and my husband, I feel very fortunate to have them in my life. And that’s why I do what I do. How many cats here we are now have five oh, my we had three and then I foster two kittens. And I went and we went and we would do the adoption fairs. I’m like, I can’t let them go. And they’re black cats or tuxedos. And you know, they have a less likelihood chance of getting adopted. And I was like, it will break my heart if they go so and they were feral. And that was the whole process. But yeah, we’re a very happy cat home.

Chris McDonald 27:49
Great. So what’s your favorite quote or mantra that you live by?

Julie Coraccio 27:53
Well, I like the one I shared earlier about don’t take anything personally what others do and say about them how you respond, but I would say the other one is to trust that you’ll get what you need when you need it. You know, just like it’s gonna work out. It’s all good. You know what, you always can’t see it in the moment, but now inside of times later on, you can

Chris McDonald 28:13
that would be a good one to put on your desk or work area.

Julie Coraccio 28:16
Yes, yes. Oh, the mine also says I got a little sign that says breathe and let go what no longer serves you.
